Mitsubishi Launches New DPS Kiosk
The DPS Kiosk features a simple touch-screen customer interface and digital inputs for any current or future format. It has a Bluetooth interface to access numerous services from mobile telephones, plus a CD/ DVD recorder to save images from digital cameras to CD and then print them. Mitsubishi claim that this ambitious project will place them at the forefront of today’s photographic market.
The DPS unit’s basic services include digital photo developing at 9x13, 10x15 and Mitsubishi’s exclusive 11.5x15 format from digital camera, CD, mobile telephone and Internet-based photo album, plus 13x18 and 15x20 enlargements, redeye correction, sepia or black-andwhite photos, index copies and CD photos. A range of decorative options, such as frames and calendars will also be available at the customer’s request. The kiosk’s more esoteric options include multimedia services for mobile phones, including logotype, melody, image and java game downloads. Customers will also be able to create their own web albums at the kiosk, which they can then share with friends and relatives across the world, or print at any DPS Kiosk.
According to Mitsubishi: “There are now numerous digital development kiosks, although none offers the level of service that the DPS Kiosk does. Besides the ‘classic’ digital development services, such as CD recording and ticket printing, autonomous payment media (VISA or prepaid card) or the developing of photos from bluetooth mobile telephones, Mitsubishi has implemented the very latest multimedia messaging and web album technology, currently only available in our DPS system. The very latest innovation in selfservice digital printing, the DPS Kiosk makes it possible to extent the overall range of services using a work station that provides rapid payback and high profitability."
