The Meteor DP20 is the central component of MGI’s My PhotoBook Shop™/MyBookinShop™ total digital photo solution.
Of the hundreds of digital products shown at PMA 09, held March 3-5 in Las Vegas, NV, only 17 were selected by a panel of digital imaging editors to receive the prestigious DIMA Innovative Digital Product Award, which recognizes products or services utilizing new technologies and/or applications that make the product either distinct or the first of its kind. The annual award is sponsored by the Digital Imaging Marketing Association® (DIMA®), a PMA® member association.
MGI’s Meteor DP20 is the industry’s first all-inclusive digital solution that can print, laminate, crease & cut in just one pass. This compact 4-color digital press uses dry toner (no water, no chemicals, no solutions to drain) and prints and laminates photos in auto-duplex mode (both sides). It accommodates virtually any off-the-shelf papers up to 12 x 18” (A3+). The Meteor DP20 produces prints in resolutions up to 1800dpi with an output of up to 10 photo books per hour (print to print), and in-line finishing options including duplex lamination and horizontal and vertical cutting and creasing. All functions are fully streamlined, automated and in one single pass, requiring just one part-time operator.
The Meteor DP20 is a versatile “business in a box” for photo professionals, giving them the option to offer additional premium printing applications such as flyers, brochures, business cards, postcards, personalized book covers with the Meteor DP20’s book cover mode (12 x 35”/304 x 889mm) and a host of direct mail services utilizing the Meteor DP20’s full variable data capabilities, a feature that no minilab or other digital photo solution can match.
