Noritsu, Lucidiom Team Up


Noritsu America Corporation recently announced the company will present an integrated photo-quality imaging solution in cooperation with Lucidiom Inc. at the 2009 International CES.

The trade show will run January 8-11. Noritsu will be exhibiting at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the South Hall, Booth 31829. Noritsu also will be participating in the official press event, CES Unveiled, on January 6 and the Spotlight on Imaging event on January 9.

Noritsu and Lucidiom have integrated their technologies to create a complete consumer-friendly imaging solution that is fully scalable for retailers both large and small. This total solution includes the new Noritsu D502 duplex inkjet printer paired with Lucidiom’s award-winning APM photo kiosk and Photo Finale Web 6.0 online portal.

The duplex capabilities of the Noritsu D502 enable a wide variety of photo products to be produced. Enlargements, greeting cards, calendars, posters, signs, scrapbooks, banners and photobooks can all be cost-effectively produced from the Noritsu D502, creating exciting new revenue opportunities for retailers in today’s challenging economic environment.

“Working together with Lucidiom allows us to offer a total imaging solution and tremendous profit potential to both mass and small chain retailers,” said Mr. Akihiko Kuwabara, president of Noritsu America Corporation.

“The Noritsu D502 double-sided inkjet printer in tandem with Lucidiom’s flexible and open software platform can produce virtually every conceivable value-added photo product – from photo books, to calendars, to greeting cards, posters and more – in addition to prints of all sizes. Retailers now have the opportunity to use reliable, proven technology from two of the leading companies in the retail digital imaging industry.”

Lucidiom President Steve Giordano, Jr. added, “The Noritsu-Lucidiom solution provides retailers with everything they need to succeed in the brave new world of social picturing, both in-store and online. Lucidiom’s award-winning software and hardware combined with the awesome printing power of the Noritsu D502 equals a digital imaging workhorse that will produce profitable results even in today’s tough economy.

"In fact, Lucidiom APM Network data shows that orders of personal publishing products already are up hundreds of percentage points this quarter compared to last year. Smart retailers will invest in the Noritsu-Lucidiom solution that produces these value-added products quickly and with the highest quality."
