Noritsu America Corporation and Independent Photo Imagers, North America’s largest buying group in the photo-imaging industry, announced a printing solution that allows customers to easily print out their Intelligent Sweep Panorama photos that are created with a new camera technology. The service will be available in select IPI member stores this year.
Sony’s growing line of Cyber-shot digital cameras includes “press and sweep” Sweep Panorama and Intelligent Sweep Panorama features designed to enable consumers to take full panoramic photos. These features necessitated a convenient printing solution that could create the high-quality prints worthy of a new photo format.
“In making this unique service available, we aim to offer everyone the chance to create true high photo quality prints in a size that cannot easily be made by consumers,” said Brent Bowyer, executive director, IPI, which comprises more than 750 member locations.
“At Noritsu, we strive to focus innovation so new services can be introduced that improve retailer margins and encourage consumer creativity and social expression. Panorama prints can be produced on many of the existing Noritsu machines in operation at IPI member stores and other retailers around the world,” said Noritsu president and CEO Yukihiko Chayama. noritsu.com or ipiphoto.com
