DNP firmware update for DS-RXH1S adds capability to print 6×6-inch square prints

Concord, North Carolina – DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation (DNP IAM) today announced version 2.06 firmware for the DS-RX1HS printer. The update is available for Windows and Mac users and provides the ability to produce 6×6” square prints, the latest trend in photo printing.

The 6×6” photo format is especially popular for photo booth applications where it can be used to create unique retro themed images. The square format is also popular for Instagram images or for a more modern approach to traditional prints.

“We are committed to providing the broadest array of print options to accommodate any range of customer preferences,” stated Shinichi Yamashita, President of DNP IAM. “This free software update is available for immediate download and provides the opportunity to create additional revenue-generating options without any additional investment in media or hardware.” The DS-RX1HS combines inexpensive hardware and print media cost with high end capabilities to provide a profitable solution for producing instant custom photo prints.

The DS-RX1HS features increased print speeds that allow users to produce 4×6” prints in 12.4 seconds or up to 290 4×6” prints per hour. The printer offers capacities of 700 4×6” prints and 350 6×8” prints from a single roll of media, as well as the ability to print two 2×6” photo strips on 4×6” paper, and four 2×6” photo strips on 6×8” paper. The printer features both a high-speed mode (300x300dpi) and a high-resolution mode (300x600dpi).  The new features can be selected using the newly released version of the printer driver. The updates are available for free download from the DNP website:
