Introducing the Seikosha VP-1500II video printer

From business, education and research, to engineering, health care and crime prevention, advances in information technology have brought video to the forefront. And yet for many people valuable video data can often be displayed only on a monitor. There is nowmore need than ever for high-quality hard copy, and so Seikosha has developed an extremely cost-effective solution: the VP-1500II video printer.

Seikosha's VP-1500II is the first thrmal video printer to provide 256-tone gray-scale out put in a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" format within a mere 3 seconds! Horizantal resolution is 300 dpi, so even fine detail can be reproduced accurately. This makes the VP-1500II an ideal solution for even such demanding applications as electron microscopy.

This level of performance does not, however, mean compromising when it comes to eithr versatility or ease of operation. The VP-1500II will accept a signal from virtually any video source - including medical imaging systems, microscopes, PCs and optical disc systms. Anyone who uses a video monitor for data display can have affordable, high-quality hard copy on demand. Storage and dissemination of data are also facilitated.

Ask for a demonstration of the Seikosha VP-1500II video printer. You'll wonder how you ever worked without one.
