Frontline Systems, the leading independent developer of photo lab web and workflow software, and Durst Phototechnik, the leading provider of advanced photo printing systems, announce the release of an online ordering system named as the ThetaWeb.

ThetaWeb’s standard configuration supports multiple Durst Theta printers, but in addition the system can also be configured to incorporate additional Durst printers such as the Lambda or Epsilon, as well as other manufacturer‘s printers to increase the labs online assortment. Several modular options are also available, including a Design module which extends the Web interface to offer customers with customizable package layouts such as calendars, albums, and greeting cards.
