DOTCOM File Specifications
File Sizing Requirements
Finished prints are to be sized at 254 Pixels/Inch. (e.g. 76.2cmx100cm@254Pixels/Inch)
File Layout Requirements
Files are printed on rolls of paper 762 mm high by upto 44 metres long.
DotCOM Prints will be charged according to the 762 mm height dimension X how many square metres of product you use.
(So if you only print one 8x10 inch print you will still be charged for the excess product on the ends( eg. 762mm x 203.2mm). It is wise if you have many prints to set your files up in strips of 762mm X ? dimensions in order to avoid wasting the product you are being charged for.)

Image files are required to be in RGB 8 Bit Format
All files are to be flattened with no extra channels or paths and converted to the (Durst Epsilon 30" LED)

Soft Proofing Illustration
The image below on the left illustrates when the "Durst Profile" has been selected as the "RGB Working space" in Photoshop. The image on the right has sRGB enabled for the "RGB Working space".
Notice the more accurate dipiction of the colour gradation with the image on the left (this should be a exact match to your physical calibration print when viewed under this setting) by using this method you can gain more control over limitations of output profiles and the colour matching of your prints.
File Format Requirements
Images are to be saved in Jpeg level 8-12 Format or Maximum Quality compression at Baseline ("Standard")
(Jpeg 12 is a lossless form of compression, saving at this setting will result in no loss of detail.)
