|HP transforms large format printing with ergonomically designed ePrinters
HP has introduced two web-connected printers that transform the large format printing process with a new ergonomic design, delivering an improved user experience for design professionals.
The new HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinter series are designed to help busy workgroups complete work efficiently and meet deadlines by printing correctly from the start with true print previews and delivering fast, high quality prints. Additionally, these devices help users on the go to access, view and print projects from the cloud so they can collaborate easily with remote teams.
HP designed the 36-inch devices based on extensive engagement with users early in the development process. Users proposed designs that addressed the pain points they suffer before, during and after the printing process. From this input, HP identified an output tray and true front-roll media loading as key areas for enhancement.
The integrated output stacking tray on the devices change the way users collect and organise large format output. The integrated output stacking tray is built in on top of the device and delivers flat, collated prints. This new output system improves productivity by reducing time spent searching through and organising printouts, and it eliminates the need for users to bend down to collect prints.
Additionally, the new industrial design presents a flat surface on top of the devices, creating a media review table for easy, quick checking of printed plans. Built for against the wall operation, the true front-roll loading feature allows users to load media easily, even while seated. In addition to these new design features, the HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinters deliver the fastest print speeds in the market.(1)
Improved user experience based on customer-driven innovation - 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. True front-roll loading and automatic paper roll alignment make media handling simple. The device operates at speeds up to 21 seconds per A1/D print and is equipped with 32 GB of virtual memory space to process complex files easily and deliver faster prints.
Ideal for multiuser environments, 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 colours and sharp lines.
Pricing and availability - The HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinter series are expected to be available worldwide beginning on July 8 for estimated list prices of 3.650€ and 5.650€, respectively.
