That's all fine, but how does it work?

The Order Manager sends images downloaded by the Dakis Job Downloader to output devices such as; Noritsu printers, Fuji minilabs or hot folders. Minilab output generates job folders & files that are processed by the minilab software.

The minilab then inputs the files and prints the images. Hot folder output is designed for images that are printed on a wide format ink-jet printer or gifting products ( such as photo mugs, t-shirts, canvas prints etc.)
