4PASS Printing Technology

The 4PASS system for the instapix™ produces a color or black + white print at 3¾” x 2¼”, which is 30% larger than other instant print systems.  Photos are printed in less than a minute and are fully developed and dried instantly. Shots are printed in 16.7 million real colors with an extra added protective layer so memories last a lifetime.

Because of the picture quality, a Minolta 4PASS photo can be enlarged to 4”x 6” or 6” x 10”.  With other technologies, photos cannot be enlarged because of low image quality or because the images are not retained after output from the camera.

Image Preservation

The printing technology, also known as dye sublimation, produces superb photos and seals each print with a high gloss laminate coating. The prints are durable, long lasting and waterproof.  The final printout is smudge-proof and fingerprint-proof.  With other technologies, the prints are not waterproof and will curl or smudge as a result of moisture or humidity.

About 4PASS Printing Technology

4PASS is a patented technology that uses dye diffusion thermal transfer (D2T2) technology that is a heat transfer process to distribute the yellow, magenta and cyan color dyes onto photo paper in a single continuous tone.  It uses real film-type YMC ink coloring and a glossy laminating overcoat for the final pass.  The result is a high-quality photographic output with 256 levels per color (total 16.7 million colors).  Each color patch is directly adhered to the paper to reproduce the most similar color as the original photo was captured.  The 4PASS technology has a much wider color reproduction range by using full temperature control range (0~300C) of TPH (Thermal Printing Head).  This results in no fingerprints or smudging on the final print, and no cleaning of the print head is required.  It uses the world’s smallest all-in-one paper and ink cartridges.  With other technologies, colors are not as precise because of heated layers, bleeding and overlap.
