Digital in the Darkroom

Photograhpic paper a low-cost media that is generally accepted to produce best quality results.

The DE VERE 504DS creates a "virtual negative" of your digital files which can be projected, sized and exposed onto photographic paper and then processed in the normal way - just like a real negative!

The DE VERE 504DS chassis allows printing in all sizes up to 20x24 inches (50cm x 60cm). However the degree of enlargement possible depends on the resolution of the input file.

The DE VERE 504DS operating system is extremely simple to use, allowing image adjustments to be made before printing.

Orders can be entered and stored ready to be printed when required and the system can be controlled either within the darkroom or remotely via an additional workstation.

The versatility of being able to easily and effortlessly print different sizes one after another, offers cost-effective digital flexibility not previously available.

DigiLite Tungsten Light Source

The DigiLite head uses a standard 24 volt 250 watt lamp and is operated via a shutter to give constant light over a long period of time.

Specifically formulated RGB filters are operated by a new express action buffer control for maximum speed output.

The filtered efficient light box transmits the filtered light through the LCD in exact combination with the three emulsion layers.

The DigiLite is fixed and only uses one light box for all magnifications to give the greatest consistency.

A switchable constant voltage power supply is included as part of the system.

LED Light Source

The LED light source uses the latest LED technology to give fast exposure times for both colour and black & white. The Unit is compact, silent and totally vibration-free.

LCD Digital Negative Panel

Incorporating the patented spread-optic for absolute evenness, the 17 megapixel LCD panel produces red, green and blue layered images to build the fullest exposure via the DE VERE 504DS software operating software.

This works in conjunction with the LED or DigiLite head to give the correct exposing light. The panel gives an average of 300 dpi printing resolution, is maintenance-free and extremely long lasting.

Workstation

The workstation is built around a powerful Windows XP computer thar runs the DE VERE 504DS operating software.

Images can be entered via many different means, i.e. film scanner, CD, Flash card, networking, etc.

Images can be sorted in an order queue, adjusted as required ready for printing. The image to be printed is then downloaded, the exposure entered and printed via the exposure control of the enlarger.

The machine can be networked with other work stations outside the darkroom.

Software

DE VERE 504DS operating software specifically designed for operating the enlarger system to give simplified operation and ease of use.

Darkroom Control
