Professional Duratran Photographic Prints
One of the great features of our new Superwide Lightjet XL500 is the ability to produce mural size photographic Duratrans at a level of quality unmatched by anything else out there.
Duratrans (short for Durable Transparency) is a brand name of Kodak translucent-base film consisting of a translucent-base material, which allows light to diffuse through the image. This rich material brings an outstanding cinematic dimension to photographic stills. With new super-slim LED Lightboxes
, Duratrans have become popular for artists, architects and interior designers as the image can be evenly lit from edge to edge, something rarely possible with florescent tubing, especially across a large area. Duraclear is simply the clear-base version of Duratrans, designed for use on light boxes that have diffusers built-in. Both these materials are especially suited to large exhibition or advertising displays as they’re very hardwearing.
Metro offers a unique super-wide Duratrans printing service on our 500XL Lightjet, meaning superb sharpness, colour saturation and an overall image quality unobtainable by any other process.
