DNP Ships WPS-1 Wireless Print Server for Direct Printing to DNP Photo Printers


Concord, NC—DNP Imagingcomm America Corp. is now shipping its new WPS-1 wireless print server for DNP photo printers. The device supports direct printing from Wi-Fi enabled photo capture devices, mobile devices and computers to DNP’s DS series and RX series of professional dye-sublimation photo printers.

Geared for professional, on-demand printing services or a self-serving printing solution, the WPS-1 can be integrated with photo booths, on-site event workflows or small retail photo printing solutions.

“Since announcing the WPS-1 wireless print server at WPPI 2015, we’ve received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from photographers and other photo providers looking forward to integrating wireless printing functionality with their workflows,” said Katsuyuki Oshima, president of DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation. “We designed the WPS-1 with a broad range of markets in mind. From the professional event photographer to the mobile event photo operator and small retailer, the WPS-1 will be an invaluable asset for increasing workflow productivity, flexibility and profitability.”

The WPS-1 is designed exclusively for DNP’s DS40, DS80, RX1 and DS620A printers. The set-top box runs custom DNP software that eliminates typical PC and network router requirements while supporting multiple image input methods. Using its built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi access point, the unit supports printing from multiple Wi-Fi enabled DSLRs, iOS and Android smartphones or tablets, and Android-based cameras, as well as Windows or Mac computers. Mobile apps for the WPS-1 can be found at the online Android and iOS marketplaces.

The wireless print server can connect to two identical DNP photo printer models for speed/redundancy or to two different models for an increased range of print size options. The WPS-1 allows for multiple print sizes, including 4×6, 5×7, 6×8 and 8×10, depending on the combination of printers and media. All prints are available with operator-selected glossy and matte finishes and can be produced with custom borders. MSRP: $179.95.
