Lambda or LightJet printing is the latest in state-of-the-art digital technology for producing high quality photographic output from disk. Whether it be printed onto photographic paper, film or duratrans, Lambda printing gives sharp photo images, continuous tone and high-impact colour graphic prints. Lambda is the name and common reference to the process, equipment and product which has taken over from the traditional photographic process.
The most visually spectacular images and graphics on the market today for high-impact trade show, exhibition and retail displays. Using continuous tone digital technology, Lambda prints, panels and murals are produced by transferring images directly from computer generated digital files to reflective or backlit photographic materials without the need of a negative. Within the equipment, three lasers-one each for red, green and blue are merged into a single beam that simultaneously exposes the photographic material, producing the image in a single pass. The photo material is then processed in the same manner as traditional photography by developing the photographic material in a "wet" film processor. By using the lasers, the total image is crisp and precise edge to edge, with no distortion. All of this means that the quality of a Lambda print will be much better in terms of clarity, sharpness and in color saturation than other print processes
