PMA 2005 | Sony DPP-FP50 photo printer Introduction

Sony DPP-FP50 photo printer: Printing and sharing your favorite photographs just got easier with the introduction of Sony's latest PictureStation™ DPP-FP50 at home printer. The DPP-FP50 model features a wireless remote control that makes it possible to print, edit, and enjoy lab-quality pictures from the comfort of your favorite chair. The new model also supports the PictBridge™ standard, so images can be viewed and printed directly from a PictBridge™ compatible digital camera without having to turn on a computer or fuss with image editing software.

"Powerful editing tools and flexible operation set the new DPP-FP50 photo printer apart from all others, providing consumers with tremendous convenience and stunning photos while enabling them to enjoy their images on a television," said Hiro Takahashi, vice president for Sony Electronics' digital imaging products.

Photo Lab in the Living Room: Since so many family memories are shared in the living room, the new printer is designed to work well with a television. With the supplied video cable, you can view images on a TV screen, select an image to print and, with the press of a button, produce a print in about 60 seconds. Additionally, the new model incorporates a Memory Stick®/Memory Stick PRO™ flash media slot as well as Compact Flash and Secure Digital media slots for transferring images easily for printing or sharing. The DPP-FP50 photo printer uses dye-sublimation technology to create durable, lab quality prints. Each print is sealed with SuperCoat 2™ laminate, which makes photos resistant to spills, moisture and fingerprints.

Creative Editing Options: The printer also comes loaded with built-in editing options, such as red-eye correction that identifies any red-eye problems and then enables the printer to make the correction automatically. It features other editing tools for adjusting image sharpness, contrast, brightness and size. The printer also has built-in creative options for adding personalized messages, changing images to black and white or sepia, and adding artistic borders to any print. Expected to be available in May for about $200, the DPP-FP50 printer has a silver colored casing and a sleek, compact design. It delivers 4" x 6" and 3.5" x 5" print sizes.
