Olivetti Ink Jet Printers
Olivetti, operator in the information & commu-nication technology sector, is to attend IFA (Berlin, September 1-6 2006), the most important event for consumer electronics in the world, with around 1,200 stands and more than 245,000 visitors in 2005. Featuring multifunctionality and portability - based on Olivetti proprietary ink jet technology - and with ease of use and sleek design: the ANY_WAY plus, the SIMPLE_WAY and the portable photo printer MY_WAY plus will all be available for consumers to experience at IFA. Through this new range of ink jet printers, Olivetti gives users the opportunity to print perfect images, even on wireless mode, thanks to Bluetooth & Wi-Fi features.
Olivetti photo printer - ANY_WAY
The IFA visitors will get the chance to see all the new Olivetti models in action. The ANY_WAY is the multi-functional coloured photo printer, with printing, copying (even without a PC) and scanning functions. Designed by James Irvine and Alberto Meda, ANY_WAY adds three brand new versions to the range: photo plus, photo wireless plus and photo fax, available in black colour way. The new ANY_WAY plus offers even more sophisticated features. The LCD picture display reaches 2.4” and has 65,000 colours. The printing speed has improved: 20 pages per minute b/w and 18 coloured pages per minute and only 75 seconds for a 10x15 photo printing. In addition, the new, simple image improvement software function helps old pictures to appear as if they have just been taken with the simplest click one technology. ANY_WAY has a Magic Button: by pressing this key, the printer analyses the photo and automatically selects the correct colour, light and contrast modifications. The photo fax model is enriched with a fax machine, operating in black and white or colour, for use as a standalone or via PC. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity is combined in the photo wireless plus model.
Olivetti multifunction colour printer - SIMPLE_WAY

It prints directly from the camera via Pictbridge, in four colours, giving the choice of substituting the black cartridge with the photographic one, in order to be able to print in 6 colours.
