/quotes/zigman/229301/quotes/nls/hpq HPQ

today introduced 10 digital printing systems that
offer print service providers (PSPs) greater versatility,
productivity and quality for commercial and industrial printing
applications such as labels and packaging, direct mail, marketing
collateral, and book publishing.

The improved performance of the new portfolio will help PSPs extend
the advantages of digital even further into traditional analog print
markets, and to produce more high-value personalized and custom
materials for their clients. The 10 new systems include:

        --  Three next-generation 29-inch-format HP Indigo presses capable of
            producing almost any commercial print job and a much broader range of
            packaging applications.
        --  Three updated models of the current HP Indigo portfolio with higher
            speeds for significantly increased productivity.
        --  Three high-productivity HP Inkjet Web Press models featuring advanced
            ink and printhead technology for excellent print quality at increased
            print speeds.
        --  HP Print Module Solutions for adding monochrome or full-color content
            to preprinted offset materials.

HP also announced new options for HP Scitex industrial presses, which
are used for large sign and display applications, and a range of new
services and solutions to complement HP’s broad portfolio of digital

“With the extraordinary scope and scale of today’s announcements, we
are fueling an unstoppable industry transformation from analog to
digital printing,” said Christopher Morgan, senior vice president,
Graphics Solutions Business, HP. “Our new digital solutions strike at
the core of the printing market and are able to meet the toughest
requirements of world-class brands, publishers and print service

HP will display the new solutions May 3-16 at drupa 2012 in
Duesseldorf, Germany, where HP will be the largest digital printing
exhibitor and will have the second-largest booth at the show.

At drupa 2008, HP introduced a revolutionary color inkjet web press,
a new series of HP Indigo presses and the industry’s first latex inks
for wide-format printers. Widespread market acceptance of those
solutions has driven the graphics transformation and strong growth of
high-value digital pages.

Worldwide, HP now has installed more than 60 HP Inkjet Web Presses,
more than 6,000 HP Indigo presses and more than 10,000 HP Latex
systems. HP also has invested more than $1 billion in research and
development of new graphics solutions.

New, larger format for HP Indigo presses
Three new larger-format HP
Indigo models allow PSPs to expand into applications not previously
addressable by digital printing, as well as to print more
productively and economically for increased profitability.

        --  The HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press is a 29-inch sheet-fed press
            suitable for an extensive range of commercial applications.
        --  The HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press is a continuous-feed press designed
            for flexible packaging.
        --  The HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press is a sheet-fed press designed for
            folding cartons.

New models of the current HP Indigo platform include the flagship HP
Indigo 7600 Digital Press, which offers a top speed of 160 pages per
minute in Enhanced Productivity Mode — a 33 percent increase over
the previous top speed, making it the fastest two-page digital
sheet-fed press available on the market.

New HP Inkjet Web Press models
The new high-speed HP T410 and T360
Inkjet Web Press systems offer increased print speeds of up to 800
feet per minute (fpm) in monochrome — up to 25 percent faster than
previous models — while continuing to offer color print speeds of up
to 600 fpm. To achieve this improved performance, the presses feature
new advanced inkjet printhead technology and nanotechnology pigment
inks that can support higher speeds with no compromise in image

The HP T230 Inkjet Web Press incorporates the new printheads and inks
to increase print speed up to 400 fpm for both color and monochrome,
with full color density for maximum quality.
