HP’s pioneering the world of printers once more with the world’s most collaborative web-enabled large-format printers
Hewlett Packard’s dedication to providing a strategic direction for its printers, namely implementing all-in-one printers, scanners and faxes with a unique IP address that links printers and users via email allowing for remote printing, has been accented even further with its latest line of printers.
In pledging to help improve design processes, effectuate a greater understanding of businesses efficiencies and reduce costs, for professionals working in the engineering, architecture and construction industries, HP’s unveiling of three more ‘collaborative’ large-format printers, will be met with a degree of curiosity and excitement.
The HP Designjet T2300 eMultifunction Printer (eMFP)
Its name might be quite a mouthful yet so are its credentials, as the eMFP is the printer industry’s first internet-ready large-format multifunction printer with copy, scan and print functionality. Flexibility and mobility are becoming an increasingly fundamental component in the workforce and consequently driving technology to streamline processes to make instant global collaboration more achievable. And this is the spirit of the eMFP, as the new multifunctional system has been designed to ensure sharing and managing content around the world is done straightforwardly, effectively and ultimately reduce costs.
The HP Designjet T2300 eMFP is priced at $850,000 and will be available from 1 November 2010
HP ePrint &Share
By allowing architect and design professionals to automatically create, manage, share and print projects online using desktop or mobile devices, the ePrint & Share will increase productively by effectively ‘cutting out the middle man’ and create faster more seamless infrastructures within the design industry.
The HP ePrint & Share will be available from 1 November 2010.
HP Designjet T7100 Printer
The Designjet T7100 is a state-of-the-art monochrome and colour printer, which as its name suggest, affords for a high-speed system allowing users to have greater interaction with their digital content. According to HP, the Designjet T7100 provides a breakthrough total cost of ownership compared to its competitors.
The HP Designjet T7100 Monochrome printer is priced at $8,595 and will be available from 1 December 2010.
Referring to HP’s unveiling of its new line of printers, Christopher Morgan, senior vice president, Graphics Solutions Business, Imaging and Printing Group, HP said:
“Today’s announcement is much more than a printer; it is a tool to transform the design process. With the HP ePrint platform extended to the technical market, design professionals now can focus on building and executing their ideas, rather than on managing cumbersome design and print processes.”
Full internet connectivity for the eMPF is planned for sometime in the spring, 2011.
