The Double System Control Visual (DSCV) technology consists of DSCV Static and DSCV Dynamic. DSCV
Static technology prints one-way see-through graphics, useful for privacy, security, practicality or just visual
interest applications. This breakthrough software technology allows users the ability to print images with the
PressVu® UV printer using VUTEk’s regular CMYK UV inks and a specially formulated white UV ink. From one
side you will see a crisp, clean image, while on the other side you will have a clear view right through. DSCV
technology offers this exciting graphic capability at a more than reasonable price and on just about any rigid or
flexible transparent substrate.
DSCV Dynamic offers the ability to display two or three images with exposure times of between 2 and 14 seconds.
Due to the level of light, along with spectacular transitions of video quality, it creates a visual sensation of a
plasma screen. This is the perfect system for urban uses, restaurants, airports, undergrounds, transit areas,
hotels, supermarkets, banks, service stations and more.
DSCV technology is standard on all PressVu UV printers. Earlier printer models can be easily and affordably
upgraded to provide this capability. To learn more about DSCV technology, call 603-279-4635.
