A Passion for Quality
Located in Chai Wan, the heart of Hong Kong's photographic community, Chaudigital HK Ltd has a long and illustrous history of helping clients produce the best possible work, whoever they are and wherever they may be. Established since 1983 as a small family business by printer Danny Chau, our history began as a black & white professional photographic laboratory based in London's EC1 'Photographic Mile'. Printing for clients such as The (BBC) Hulton Picture Library (now Hulton Getty), and The Guardian Observer Newspaper Group, Danny Chau quickly gained a reputation for top quality film processing and printing in London's black & white photographic industry.
Digital Imaging Specialists
Realising the potential of digital technology, Danny Chau then decided to invest into digital printing. With personal experience developed in computers since 1983 and digital imaging since 1989, Danny installed one of the UK's first Epson 9000 large format inkjet printers in April 1998, and an Imacon Flextight scanner in May 2000, to cope with demand. With this, he provided some of the first high-quality digital imaging services to clients in the UK. Seeing there was a gap in quality digital imaging suppliers, in 2002 Danny changed his firms operations, to focus on best quality digital imaging solutions for professionals (in the UK). He also introduced the now popular on-demand fine-art gicleé printing (one of the first few printers to do so in London)
The establishment of Chaudigital Hong Kong Limited by Danny Chau in 2006 is a continuation of this legacy, of a passion for quality, but good value for money. Our aim is to help produce the highest quality output for clients in Hong Kong and the surrounding Asian regions. Or for those who love Europe, US/UK or are looking for variety, something fresh and a little different than the norm.
