IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, July 25, 2005 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Photo Imaging Division today introduced its CP-9550DW digital photo printer that provides professional photographers with new benchmarks in color brightness, accuracy and operating efficiency. The new CP-9550DW can make professionals more successful by improving the quality and consistency of a photographers' end product.

“Mitsubishi's Photo Imaging engineering teams have attacked the areas that challenge professional photographers most: quality, speed and cost,” said Margie Chiaramonte, Marketing Manager, Mitsubishi's Photo Imaging Division. “The CP-9550DW is the result, defining a new standard by offering high photographic quality in a matter of seconds, all while lowering operating costs. This printer should provide an immediate return on investment.”

Bottom line costs are impacted immediately thanks to new levels of versatility offered by the CP-9550DW. Five different output sizes (3.5 x 5, 4 x 6, 5 x 7, 6 x 8, 6 x 9), with edge-to-edge printing, enable photographers to meet any customer demand. At the same time, the CP-9550DW maintains its high quality by employing 16-bit internal processing and a unique dual line head technology. The printer also has an adaptive thermal heat management engine with an all-new 346 dpi thermal head that improves resolution and ensures longer service life. The result is greater image quality, detail and texture at superior resolutions.

Perhaps one of the most important features to professional photographers is Mitsubishi's industry-leading customer service. With this in mind, Mitsubishi is offering a unique 24-hour Express Replacement Assistance program, a one-of-a-kind service that backs up the company's confidence in its digital printers and helps guarantee that professional photographers can keep their business up and running 24/7.

An easy-to-use, convenient front access paper catch tray holds up to 20 prints. A new feed mechanism combined with a simplified paper path delivers the prints at an exceptional speed, allowing photographers to produce more revenue-generating prints over time. The CP-9550DW is equipped with two 32MB memory frames so images can be stored in memory while printing. The color image control system monitors the number of prints remaining. A high speed USB 2.0 connection provides the best interconnectivity to the photographer's system.

Now available - the CP-9550DW carries an MSLP of $2,395.
