The QSS-3701/3702/3703 is a user-friendly, efficient, multi-function minilab system that provides the flexibility you need to respond to the diverse customer demands. It combines the same basic features as the popular QSS-32 series with the following two new features so as to meet an even wider variety of customer needs.

1. The components of the operation section (PC, monitor, scanner, etc.) can be separated, enabling you to place them on the table of your choice, or in any layout you like.

2. Can be used as a network printer. It is possible to use the QSS-37 minilabs in a network with multiple input devices and/or multiple printers.

The QSS-3704 and QSS-3705 are new high capacity models from the recently-released QSS-37 series, boasting a maximum capacity of 2,360 prints per hour (4R). Furthermore, these new minilabs can also be used as network printers, connecting multiple input devices and/or multiple printers. These and many other features make the QSS-3704/3705 the perfect choice for photo retailers and studios, as they fulfill a diverse range of demands with their user-friendliness and efficiency.


High quality print engine
A laser engine is used for the QSS-37 series to produce vivid, high quality silver halide prints of 300dpi.

“AccuSmart™” image processing technology employed
Noritsu Koki’s AccuSmart™ technology enables you to easily portray the natural beauty of the scene as viewed by the photographer when the picture is taken. This advanced technology not only provides superb quality for well photographed images, it also applies appropriate correction to less-than-perfect shots, resulting in extremely high quality prints regardless of the image source.


A selection of new film scanners to choose from (film scanners sold separately)
With the QSS-37 series, you have three new film scanners to choose from. The HS-1800 supports a wide variety of film including 120, and the LS-600 (600 frames/hr) / LS-1100 (1,200 frames/hr) support only 135 and IX240 film. You can also choose not to add a scanner, and instead use the QSS-37 system as a stand-alone printer.


New operation software “EZ Controller” (sold separately)
The EZ Controller gives you the ability to easily perform many important functions such as PJP, value-added print creation, order management, and image correction. Furthermore, pictures are used to explain many of the instructions for start up checks and shut down checks, and warning messages are easy to locate and read.


Setup prints taken care of automatically
The colorimeter is built into the processor. This enables the setup print to be automatically inserted into the colorimeter after it comes out of the dryer unit, eliminating the need for manual operations. Also, the QSS-37 series has a new option called the “Control Strip Auto Loading Unit” that automatically processes control strips.


Interrupted orders signified by LED lamp
LED lamps (Standard) on the order sorter are used to indicate which orders have been interrupted and which print trays the interrupted orders are in. Furthermore an order sorter for wide prints (up to 10 inches) is available for the QSS-3704.
NoteThe 10-inch order sorter does not support the above-mentioned LED lamp function.


Rapid processing
In addition to the wide variety of chemicals supported with other QSS models, the QSS-37 series also support rapid processing using CP-49E (Fujifilm). This enables you to reduce the time it takes for the first print to be output, and thereby provide a high quality one-stop print service where the customers can place their order and pick up their prints in the same visit. Rapid processing is a standard feature with the QSS-3705, so this model only supports CP-49E (Fujifilm) /EC1 (FujiHunt) chemicals. Note: Only specified paper can be used with each type of chemical.


Prints up to 914.4mm (36 inches) long
The maximum paper width is 305mm (12 inches) and the maximum paper advance length is 914.4mm (36 inches), making it possible to provide a wide variety of print services.


Triple/Quad Magazines (Factory option)
The triple and quad magazine systems enable labs that make various size prints to set multiple paper sizes at the same time. Magazine changes are quick and easy.


An array of options
The QSS-37 series supports the MD-2 Unit, Bravo™ II/Rimage™ CD writers, DVD writing and many other options to provide a scalable system that allows you to add new services as needed.

State-of-the-art digital minilabs with a name that embodies our confidence in high definition and high resolution prints

Everyone has different photo needs.
To fulfill your needs for optimal quality, Noritsu bring you a system that boasts high resolution and high definition.As high-end digital cameras are becoming more prevalent, the expectations for prints are higher and more complex. Noritsu Koki knows that the only way to meet the individual print needs is to enhance the specifications of the printer. This is why we have improved the laser exposure system, resulting in higher resolution, higher quality prints. We bring you a system that provides the exact image quality you are aiming for, and covers a diverse range of needs. Come discover the awesome image potential of the amazing Noritsu QSS-37HD series.

A revolution in beauty

The pursuit of beauty may seem like chasing an intangible and unattainable dream. Photographic beauty is subject to the limitations of the camera and the photography techniques, and the criteria for labeling something beautiful also varies from person to person since beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder. Therefore, fulfilling Noritsu Koki’s mission of delivering beautiful photos to customers everywhere all the time is very dificult, to say the least. But the Noritsu QSS-37HD series has enabled us to take a giant step forward in this regard.

The laser engine, which is regarded as the heart of the printer, has been improved so as to attain an even higher level of quality. The user-friendly image processing operation and all the other special features of the Noritsu QSS-37HD work together to provide high quality photographs that satisfy all customers, regardless of their individual tastes.

High resolution enables high quality prints with sharp portrayal of fine details
It is resolution that is vital in producing realistic looking photos, as is the case with photographs that accurately portray the scene that the photographer views when he peers through his lens. Pursuing resolution is our mission here at Noritsu Koki, and it is an area we continue to
make rapid progress in. The Noritsu QSS-37HD series consists of minilabs that are worthy of the letters they bear - “HD” (for High Definition). With a name that embodies our confidence, we bring you the Noritsu QSS-37HD series and a new meaning to the word “high quality”.
An amazing resolution of 640 dpi (12 bits ).
This translates to 79 million pixels for an A3 size print Having a printer that produces prints of silver halide quality provides a big advantage for the photo retailer. For icing on the cake, the Noritsu QSS-37HD has a newly developed laser engine that has an unprecedented resolution of 640 dpi for both main scanning and sub scanning, and this results in prints with 5 times more pixels than prints made with previous minilabs. All these extra pixels result in finely detailed prints that have a dimension that is not available with other printers.

Raw image data processed automatically

Up to now, handling raw image data has been a troublesome affair. To solve this problem, Noritsu Koki has formed a technical cooperation agreement with Adobe Systems. According to this agreement, raw image conversion software is incorporated in the EZ Controller, and raw image files are converted to the DNG file format, and then the images are enhanced with Noritsu Koki’s “AccuSmart” image processing technology. Utilizing the technology made available in this agreement, Noritsu Koki developed a system that produces optimal prints automatically, undergoing the same basic process as when making prints from film images. This means you do not have to do anything special to print raw image data. These orders can be processed just like any other print order.

A large portion of the pixel data in the original JPEG image has highlight areas that are too light. When the image is corrected, the overall light in the image is reduced, but the pixels representing the highlight areas that were too
light are unsalvageable.


All gradations are used, producing an image that is balanced well. There are very few pixels with shadows that are too dark and highlights that are too light.

The Noritsu QSS-37HD series delivers high quality prints in a flash
Digital camera image data and image data scanned from film is easily corrected to produce beautiful photos that closely resemble what the photographer sees when he snaps the shutter. For example, Digital ICE and Digital Masking are used to automatically correct dust and scratches on film, and you can set values for insufficient peripheral light, color aberration, and distortion, and make unrestricted correction of lens aberration. With the Noritsu QSS-37HD series, it is easy to provide consistent quality without undergoing any complicated procedures.


A revolution in versatility

Photographs are a wonderful form of entertainment, Noritsu believes this with all their heart.
We see many people pick shots that are special to them and preserve them in ways that enrich their lives. Noritsu Koki cherishes such scenes, and they want to enhance the enjoyment of photographs through our machines. The QS S -37HD was developed under our certified product development syste m, which is constantly striving for improvement and is always aiming to develop versatile machines that go beyond the present market needs. We hope that you will take advantage of all that Noritsu machines have to offer, and use them to build an exciting shop. Doing so will fuel your customers’ interest in photographs, and this in turn will lead to customer growth and an increase in revenue.

Consumers can operate the CT-SL themselves and thereby gain a first-hand appreciation of the joy of making prints
Installing CT-SL digital media input terminals will not only enable your customers to discover the joy of selecting the photos they want to print, this also enhances efficiency by eliminating order-taking hassle for the employees. The CT-SL’s intuitive interface, easy-to-use GUI, and exciting templates make it fun and easy to use.

The EZ Controller (sold separately) is a powerful asset that improves efficiency
The EZ Controller takes care of everything from print order management to color correction of the individual images. It can be installed in networked computers, providing a flexible system in which image editing can be carried out efficiently with multiple computers.

Film scanners to meet the needs of film users
Noritsu Offers three different scanners to choose from, enabling you to provide a high-quality print solution to film users.

“Color Tone Selection” is a fun service that provides an alternative look
Nowadays, many people are looking for a way to give a creative look to their photos, and many customers want to choose the color tone for their photos. In addition to the basic color tone, it is also possible to choose other unique color tones with the Noritsu QSS-37HD, including “Vivid”, “Nostalgic”, and “High Key” which creates a pleasant scene with a pale color tone.

The Noritsu QSS-37HD series provides many ways for your customers to enjoy their photos, and it creates countless photo opportunities
We are now seeing a lot of variation in value-added photos and personalized photo products, thanks to the versatility of digital image data. You can make many different kinds of albums and many different kinds of prints in various sizes up to 12 x 36 inches.

Letting your customers know about the extensive variety of print services available at your shop is a great way to expand your business possibilities. This is sure to help you pull in new customers, and reinforce the customer base you already have. You can surprise your customers by offering new services they never thought possible, and the high-performance Noritsu QSS-37HD series provides the ideal environment for doing this.

A revolution in speed

Speed provides a big advantage in the photo business. Speed improves productivity and is tied directly to customer satisfaction and profitability. Being this as it may, Noritsu Koki’s stance is that it is in no way acceptable to sacrifice quality for speed. To this end, we have undertaken the next -to-impossible task of maintaining high precision while improving the processing capacity. We use synergy to incorporate excellent features into our lates thigh -quality high -speed printers, and we do our best to provide a smooth workflow. This is the main reason so many people around the world support us and our products.

Choose a capacity that meets your needs
It is an unmistakable fact that print capacity is the key to providing a smooth photo business, and Noritsu Koki has continually strived to provide higher capacities so retailers can meet a wide range of processing demands, including sudden orders for large print volumes. However, it is also true that required capacities vary with the business scale. Printing the quantity you need, when you need it. The fact that our minilabs answer those needs makes them versatile machines. The Noritsu QSS-37HD series has 5 different capacities to choose from. In addition to the choice of capacities, these printers allow for smooth high-speed processing during peak times as well as slower times, and the same consistent high quality photos are provided at all times.

Triple magazines / Quad magazines Factory Option
Replacing magazines every time you need to change print sizes can be a time-consuming task. But you can eliminate the need for frequent magazine changes by loading 3 magazines with the triple magazine system or even 4 magazines with the quad magazine system.

On-the-spot prints for a one-stop service

Keeping in line with current trends, many photo shops are placing more emphasis on speed for their print services. A standard Noritsu QSS-37HD printer provides ample speed as it is, but it is also possible to hasten the print speed even further. Installing CT input terminals will greatly enhance your digital input workflow, using the EZ Controller will provide an efficient print workflow, and “rapid processing chemicals” will bring a reduction in the processing cycle, while at the same time enabling easy and safe “one touch” replacement.

These three powerful tools enable an on-the-spot print service where the print orders are fulfilled in minutes. This means customers can come into your shop, place the order, and pick up the prints in the same visit. This ability is sure to help you attract new customers who have not printed at retail in the past due to personal time restraints.

Control Strip Auto Loading Unit Option
Constantly checking the conditions of the chemicals can be a troublesome affair, but the convenient Control Strip Auto Loading Unit makes this an easy task. All you have to do is set the control strip in the Auto Loading Holder Unit without a leader and set this unit in the processor. This enables the control strip to be processed automatically when processing begins.

Display module Option
The Display Module displays error messages and other vital information, and this enables you to confirm the condition of the printer, even if it is separated from the EZ Controller. This way you will be aware of the condition of the printer at all times, even when you are busy attending to customers, and this will enable you to quickly recognize and solve any problems that may arise.

A versatile network system that supports a variety of shop needs

Independent shops / Chain stores
Automation from input to output, which is beneficial for a small-scale staff.Orders input with the CT-SL are controlled with the EZ Controller. These images are printed after being corrected. You can support film users by connecting a scanner. With the ability to provide on-the-spot prints and other convenient services, Noritsu Koki provides an efficient workflow for small-scale shops.

Photo studios
Smooth operations for studios that rely heavily on image correction
Using a separately placed computer, it is possible to perform image editing in a separate area. If you install the Noritsu QSS Printer Driver software in the computer, you can make prints from all the applications you are used to using. This provides smooth operations for photo studios that perform a large amount of image correction.


Pro labs
Can process large volumes smoothly with a scalable network system
In addition to making prints, this flexible network system enables you to scan film and process the images on a computer, burn CDs, install the EZ Controller in multiple computers, and boost your productivity by configuring your network so particular orders are distributed to specified printers. If you construct your network to enable third party software to be used, you can connect the optional NetOrder Converter, which also makes it possible to support Internet orders. As you can see, it is possible to support diverse business styles when you use Noritsu equipment.
