| Lambda 130
tone 50" - Large Format Digital Photo Printer
The evolution in imaging to unsurpassed large-format quality:
Straight from a digital file, the Durst Lambda 130 can print
any creation directly onto photographic media (reflective
=> paper / backlit => transparent or opaque film).
High End Imaging
The Durst Lambda 130 Large-Format Digital Laser Imager:
the new standard for digital large-format reflective or
backlit displays directly from file. It has moved digital
imaging to an entirely new level. You'll get whites that
are truly white and blacks that are absolutely black. Colors
are unbelievably saturated and true to the original shot
including fleshtones and bright colors. With the Durst Lambda,
your digitally created or retouched images will accurately
reflect the intentions of the photographer or graphic artist.
The unique and patented Durst Lambda continuous roll to
roll 3-laser (RGB) exposure system for media widths up
to 127 cm / 50" offers total size flexibility and achieves
an image quality which is superior to all other large format
printers - photographic, inkjet and electrostatic. The Durst
Lambda 130 is the answer for efficient and fast large-format
print production with uncompromising quality for:
- fair stands
- illuminated displays
The key features
- High image and text quality with clean grades
Durst Lambda 130 combines the advantages of classical
silver halide photography with the potential of the latest
laser and digital technology, without an intermediate
film stage - and without the compromises of CMYK output,
This new technology offers superior color saturation and
fidelty, better image quality, more details and sharper
type than other alternatives (customer statement). It
also provides a number of advantages over conventional
enlargements, including improved image quality with no
image distortion and no loss of image sharpness, perfect
edge to edge sharpness and eveness, a reduction in time
spent handling images, and a decrease in the cost of materials.
The Durst Lambda 130 operates with a full 36-bit RGB color
space (68 billion colors) to ensure excellent control
over the light source and to produce faithful color reproductions.
- Dual, autoswitchable resolution of 200 and 400 ppi
Durst Lambda 130 features a dual, autoswitchable reolution
of 200 and 400 continuous tone pixels per inch (ppi) with
on-the-fly pixel interpolation. The 400 ppi continuous-tone
resolution of the Durst Lambda 130 is comparable with
a resolution of 4000 dpi of printers with half-tone dots.
- High output speed
Exposes all medias with the same high linear speed of
30cm / 12" per minute for both resolutions of 200/400
ppi for media widths up to 81.2 cm /32". Slightly lower
speed of 21com /8" per minute for media widths wider than
81.2 cm /32" (400 ppi only). Compared with other digital
systems the Lambda is "remarkably faster" (approx. 20
prints 100 x 130 cm / 40 x 50 in. per hour).
- Print production without size limitations
The fact that the Durst Lambda 130 has no print size limitations
it can virtually generate any print size from icons to
large murals (with auto- and custom paneling functions).
One seamless print can be as long as one entire 127 cm/50“
roll (50 m/164 ft). Print sizes exceeding the max. paper
width are automatically divided-up and exposed in sections.
Operator can select how oversized panels are split. The
desired overlap is adjustable. This allows you offer new
print sizes, create new and exiting products and to enter
new market segments.
- On-the-fly changes in print size, color and contrast
In addition, the prints can be rotated, mirrored or cropped
and corrected in sharpness, color, density and contrast
without re-rasterizing the image (RIP).
- Sharp images, text and graphics with exceptional
details at full contrast
The digital imaging technology ensures a constant pixel
size and intensity over the entire image. The patented
Durst continuous roll to roll laser exposing system ensures
no parasite light during the exposure for perfect image
white and highest contrast range.
- Simple operation
A clearly designed and easy-to-use interface guarantees
truly simple operation.
- Fast access to the printing media
A 5-position paper turret for unexposed materials to allow
a quick access to various materials (reflective and backlit
materials, different paper widths, etc). The requested
media can be menu-selected from the computer (Autoload-Function).
- Open system
Already existing files created with standard application
programs (i.e. for Offset-Printing, advertisement, etc.)
can be printed to any size on the Durst Lambda without
- Supported File Formats:
- RGB- and Grayscale - TIFF
