Citizen's new CY Dye-Sub Photo Printer offers a 16% greater printing capacity from a unit that is 20% smaller than its predecessor, the CW. The new model will enable users to save valuable space in retail environments such as small kiosks while delivering more prints per roll of media. Despite its reduced height and depth, the CY can deliver 700 postcard-sized prints per roll and 350 A5-sized prints per roll.
The Citizen CY also incorporates a range of time-saving, convenient features that will benefit users in the retail industry where quick turnaround is essential. Features include easy-to-install ribbons that can be automatically identified by the printer and a double buffer that enables full speed output with no delay between prints. The CY also features a drop-down front door that allows easy access when changing media and offers the potential for the printer to be built-in to its environment. Monitoring tools and drivers are compatible with the latest operating systems, enabling print counts and counter resets plus the ability to select alternatives such as glossy or matte surface finish.
The increased level of performance and reduced unit size makes the CY especially suitable for environments and applications such as photo kiosks, theme park rides, offices, schools, law enforcement, medical imaging and event photography.
