New Addition: Ilumina Digital Color Press with Direct to Lens Printing
Small to mid-sized print shops can now enter the lucrative special effects print market with the Xanté Ilumina 3D Digital Color Press, which can print directly on lenticular media. The Ilumina 3D is perfectly suited for lenticular printing and can also serve as a cost-effective lenticular proofing device for higher-end and wide format applications. The Ilumina 3D is driven by a Xanté plug-in to Adobe® Photoshop® developed by lenticular software supplier ProMagic®.
