What is the printing process?
The P55 uses a re-transfer dye sublimation process. The image is printed onto a re-transfer roll using 4 different color panels, the re-transfer roll is then adhered to the disc. There are two separate modes for the P55, first thermal wax transfer then dye sublimation.
What is Dye Sublimation?
Dye sublimation is a process of thermal printing in which a Dye is transferred from the Color Roll to the Transfer Roll as a solid to a gas to a solid. The Dye never becomes liquid, only a gas. Thus it is not applied like an inkjet process in dots. The gas application allows the colors to blend better to produce a more photo realistic image.
What is the resolution?
The P55 uses a 400DPI print head. This is the highest resolution print head available which produces the equivalent of 290LPI - the highest dye sublimation resolution on the market today.
How many color panels does the P55 use?
The P55 uses a 4 color roll in both the thermal wax and dye sublimation printer rolls. The colors consist of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. This produces a "true" black color unlike other dye sublimation printers since others use the CMY to create black.
