Latin America’s online digital photo leader to offer breakthrough quality photo products

Digipix, a pioneer in worldwide digital photo printing innovation, is growing its digital photo business with a new HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press, making it the first to install the newly released press in the Americas.

The Sao-Paulo, Brazil-based Digipix will use its new HP Indigo 12000 HD to offer breakthrough digital photo quality for high-end photo albums. Digipix is an all-digital photo print service provider that converted its photo production from traditional processes.

“We embarked on a journey with HP Indigo over 12 years ago, and along the way have completely transformed our business. We continuously aim to improve quality for our customers. We are very excited by the market release of the HP Indigo 12000 HD, which will help continue our mission to lead digital photo innovation,” said Marco Perlman, Digipix founder and CEO.

The B2 format HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press, released to the market last month, is setting new standards for photo quality with double the image resolution and additional photo and color innovations. The press offers sharper, smoother, finer print, enabling print service providers (PSPs) to surpass conventional offset and photo quality and open new digital possibilities in high-end photo and commercial applications.

Pioneering digital photo printing in Latin America

“Digipix is a great Brazilian success story, having started its business when the point of contact was still photo shops. Today the online Digipix is the most important player in the market, providing photo books for photographers and prints and photo gifts to end consumers,” said Leo Saldanha, editor of FHOX magazine for professional photographers. “Digipix is ready to grow and help photographers print high quality and the final consumer to preserve memories.

Digipix was also a pathbreaker with the HP Indigo WS6000p, HP Indigo 7500, and HP Indigo 5000 in 2005, installing the first Latin American units.
