Noritsu's Mytis-1, which made its premier
at PMA 2004, now has a cousin
once-removed. The new Mytis-1SP is
actually the same printer as the Mytis-1,
but the heating unit is physically separated
from the printer. Designed for high-volume
shops, the separated system
allows two prints to be handled and processed

Like the Mytis-1, the 48-in. Mytis-1SP
prints images up to 720 x 720 dpi and
at speeds up to 160 ft/hr. Both printers
use a sublimation process with 6-color
dispersion dye inks (two cartridges per
color) to produce photo-quality, outdoordurable

The exclusive media for the Mytis
printers is a line of self-adhesive Vision
media: White, Backlit, Trans, Metallic,
and Reflective. In the printing/heating
process, the variable dots of ink are
deposited, and when the print is heated,
the inks are trapped in the inner fluorine
layer of the media, protecting the print.
The final print does not require lamination
or edge-sealing, offers outdoor durability
of 3 to 5 yr, and is weather-, water-,
and graffiti-resistant.

Standard equipment includes the
printer, loop unit, heating unit, and the
customized Raster Link Pro RIP. Both
the Mytis-1SP and the Mytis 1 sell for
