HP recently introduced two web-connected printers into the market. HP claims the new printers will transform the large-format printing process by delivering an improved user experience for architecture, engineering, construction and design professionals.
According to HP, the new Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinter series help users with on-the-go access, view and print projects from the cloud and they could also collaborate easily with remote teams. “The innovation of HP Designjet ePrinters is an outcome of HP’s commitment to listening to customers and meeting their expectations.” said Zeina Ahmed, Large Format Design Business Manager, HP Middle East. “Our customers from the design, architecture, engineering and construction industry constantly seek more efficient and user-friendly tools to bring their ideas to life, and HP’s large-format printing solutions exceed expectations with their innovative features and remote functionality.”
The company in a press statement said that the 36-inch devices were designed based on extensive engagement with users early in the development process. For small to medium workgroups, the compact HP Designjet T920 ePrinter eliminates output clutter with an integrated stacking tray that collates up to 50 sheets of A4- to A0-size media. The device operates at speeds as 21 seconds per A1/D print and is equipped with 32GB of virtual memory space to process complex files easily and deliver faster prints.
The HP Designjet T1500 ePrinter is equipped with two rolls and features automatic alignment and smart switching capabilities to handle multiple jobs on different media types and sizes. Doubling the processing power over its predecessor, the HP Designjet T1500 ePrinter uses a parallel processor with a 320GB hard drive to print multiple files simultaneously.
The HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinters feature an intuitive, full-colour touch screen that gives users added control with the ability to manage job queues, track print costs and view true print previews. With six Original HP inks and the HP printhead, the new series can produce dark blacks, true neutral grays, vivid colors and sharp lines.
HP Designjet ePrint & Share
The printers’ features HP Designjet ePrint & Share, a free web service that makes it easy to access, view and print large-format documents using an Android or Apple tablet, smartphone, a notebook or an ePrinter touch screen.
Together with HP Designjet ePrint & Share, the web-connected HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinters allow users to automatically save copies of projects to the cloud when printing. Users can also email projects to print by attaching a PDF or other print-ready file to an email. Customers can then send the file to the ePrinter’s dedicated address.
Pricing and availability
Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinter series will be available worldwide beginning on July 8 for estimated retail prices of AED 15,806 and AED 23,166 respectively.
