Latent Light’s clients range from consumers to art galleries, meaning it is essential all images are of the highest quality whether printed on paper stock, canvas or other materials. The investment in Canon’s latest colour digital print engine will enable Latent Light to print exceptional quality images at speeds of up to 100 pages per minute while enabling them to remain competitively priced.
In purchasing the C10000VP, Latent Light will benefit from Canon’s industry-leading printing technology and support services. These will ensure Latent Light produces materials that are peerless in terms of quality and output volume and speed. The engine will initially be used to produce high-end printed materials, including photobooks for its customers.
Latent Light founder Adam Gildersleeve said: “Many of our customers order prints of special moments so we need to be sure what they receive has a real wow factor. We brought print in-house over a decade ago to control the quality of our output. With the new C10000VP we’ll be building on this foundation and be able to deliver images of the highest standard, more quickly than ever before.”
As a long-time Canon customer, Latent Light had previously installed the imagePRESS C6000VP and C7000VP. The addition of the C10000VP will complement the existing solutions and enable Latent Light to better meet the needs of its customers and grow its retail and professional photographic business segments.
Wayne Barlow, Director Professional Print at Canon Business Imaging Group, said: “Latent Light is devoted to providing ever-greater levels of quality and consistency at a competitive price. It needed an engine that met these requirements and the C10000VP is the perfect solution.”
Latent Light’s Gildersleeve added: “Not only do we have confidence in the image quality and reliability of Canon’s printers, but the fully automated solution changes the way we run our business. The new engine allows us to work in a far more efficient and productive way, without compromising on the quality we pride ourselves on.”
The Canon imagePRESS C10000VP was installed in late November 2015 at Latent Light’s facility in Bristol, and is now operational.
