The original software application would need to be installed on the DC2300 in order to print directly from the application to the Perfecta 2400PRO. Keep in mind that you will need to set the print [references and driver settings relative to the application you are using (VariQuest presets these for you). If the file can be saved as a PDF, it can be printed from the Adobe PDF Reader that is pre-loaded on the DC2300. (See Design Center Software User’s Guide for additional information/resources on printing from a non-VariQuest software.)
Yes, you can import a graphic into a blank template; however, the quality of the poster is going to depend on a combination of the height, width, and resolution of your original image. If your height and width are greater than 2400 x 3600, and your resolution is 150 dpi or higher, you are safe for a good print. There are several resources available on the internet to help understand print quality when enlarging photos. Please see previous question for a list of supported graphic file formats.
The VariQuest Perfecta is an all-inclusive system (printer, touch workstation and software) – all designed to work together and developed specifically for schools in mind. While we certainly understand there are other competitive wide-format printers on the market, we feel our solution is better suited for most school applications. Please contact your authorized VariQuest representative for a copy of the Perfecta 2400 Advantage flyer.

Ink usage varies based on many variables – type and amount of content on each poster, output size, paper type, print speed, and printer maintenance. That said, Varitronics conducted tests to estimate the average cost per poster using Perfecta Heavyweight Coated paper. Please contact you authorized VariQuest representative for additional information.
Yes, the printer could potentially use CMY inks to complete the greyscale printing. With inkjet technology, there are several circumstances when color ink may be used – primarily to improve print quality and improve printer reliability – even if the document appears to be only black text and graphics. Some images that look black may contain a combination of black and color inks. For black and white images and photos, a blend of colors called ‘composite black’ may be used to achieve better image quality and smoother gray tones. The nozzles also must be primed for the printer to operate – a tiny amount of CMY inks are used in this process. That said, you can reduce the color inks used by modifying the driver settings.
