Chromira ProLab Printing Onsite at Photokina 08


Carpinteria, CA, USA – Attendees to Photokina ’08 should plan on bringing their own image files with them to ZBE’s Photokina booth C-015/C-019 in Hall 4.1.  Every day of this year’s show, ZBE will be running its Chromira 5x ProLab and giving demonstrations, using stock images, as well as ones provided by visitors.   This way, not only can attendees see the printer in action, but they can also see the Chromira ProLab’s crisp quality reflected in their own images.  Visitors should provide their images in RGB JPEG, TIFF, or Windows BMP formats on cd or dvd.
