HP Expands Large-format Printing Portfolio to Increase Efficiency, Boost Productivity

Palo Alto, Calif., April 20, 2010 – HP today announced a new HP Designjet multifunction printer (MFP) and scanner to help office users, IT managers and technical design professionals easily shift from a cumbersome, hard copy-based project workflow to a more efficient, integrated digital workflow that boosts productivity and reduces costs.

“Enterprises and small and midsize businesses are facing extreme pressure to develop a leaner, more efficient infrastructure, while still providing high-quality results,” said Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, Designjet Printing Solutions, HP. “HP is committed to providing solutions that allow our customers to collaborate, innovate and achieve success while simplifying the way they manage their printing environments.”

Optimize imaging and printing infrastructure with new large-format solutions
The new HP Designjet T1200 HD-MFP offers customers an integrated scanning, copying and printing experience for a variety of large-format documents, including drawings, maps, renders and photo-realistic images. Ideal for reproduction houses, copy shops and planning departments, the MFP features a four-camera charge-coupled device (CCD) scanner with 600 dpi technology and embedded PostScript capabilities for optimal results.

Customers also can streamline workflow and increase efficiency by bringing large-format color scanning in-house with the new HP Designjet Scanner. A resolution of 600 dpi optical from four CCD cameras creates high-quality images with realistic colors and precise lines even when using poor-quality originals. The scanner complements existing large-format printing capabilities to build a powerful, easy-to-use, in-house scan-copy-print system. It integrates easily with numerous industry-leading third-party scan applications, enabling excellent copy quality and performance.

These solutions help customers drive new business opportunities by delivering higher productivity and print quality, fast print speeds and a powerful in-printer processing architecture that allows workgroups to easily meet deadlines, even during printing peaks.

Software solutions allow customers to capture new business
HP also offers a suite of software for the HP Designjet portfolio that increases productivity, reduces costs and delivers high-quality results. The software includes Serif Poster Designer Pro for HP, HP Instant Printing, SCP Reprocontrol for HP and HP Designjet Excel Accounting Report.
