A unique feature of the DS820 is the ability to print photos with different finishes: fine matte, matte, luster and glossy. This make sure there is a suitable finish for every different purpose. The great thing about the finish option is that it’s not necessary to change the paper roll: the coating is printed on the paper by the printer.
DNP offers free software called 'Hot Folder Print'. So it is possible to print photos automatically via a so-called 'Hot Folder'. The idea is simple: Define a folder in which the photos should be placed and select the desired printer and layout. Then you can take photos and the photos will be printed automatically from the drop down menu.
In the Hot Folder Print you can configure the correct properties once, then each photo is printed in the correct way. Select the format, the finish and optionally switch on the 2-inch cut.
The DS820 offers the ability to produce prints in different sizes. Next to the A4 size you can print in 10x20, 13x20, 15x20, 20x25, 20x30 and even 20x80 panoramas. To print panoramas, install the latest firmware version and print the photos with Hot Folder Print.
Of course it’s important that the printer doesn’t use more paper than needed. That’s why the DS820 is equipped with a rewind function. This makes sure there’s an optimal usage of the paper: good for you and the environment.
Lower power consumption
The power consumption of the DS820 is designed in such a way that there’s used only 0.5W energy in stand-by mode. It’s fine to let the DS820 be turned on for a longer period of time.
The DS820 offers the possibility to print your own designed watermark. This function lets the photo itself unattended, but makes the text visible by printing in matte and glossy finish.
