Technology solutions company HP has launched a new large format printing solution - the HP PageWide XL 8000, which offers increased productivity to high-volume reprographic houses and enterprise central reprographic departments in Malaysia.
"Our large-format printing customers are continually exploring ways to improve productivity, streamline workflow and reduce costs," said Lee Kok Wai, country business manager, HP Designjet Large Format Printer, HP.
Lee said the HP PageWide XL 8000 delivered the "fastest large-format production printing available in colour and black-and-white.
He also announced new HP SmartStream software to enhance workflow as well as new large-format supplies and printing materials, including HP PageWide Pigment Inks, HP Universal Bond Paper, and HP Production Matte, Gloss and Satin Poster Papers.
Lee said that the HP PageWide XL 8000 "does the job of two printers in one single device, providing monochrome and colour prints at breakthrough speeds up to 60 percent faster than the fastest monochrome light-emitting diode (LED) printer."
"The HP PageWide XL 8000 Printer announced today will revolutionise the production printing market, offering affordable, high-quality black-and-white and colour output in a single device in half the time it usually takes on multiple printers," he said.
Lee said the printer allows high-volume reprographic houses and enterprise central reprographic departments to produce computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and will open new business opportunities with geographic information system (GIS) maps, point-of-sale applications and posters.
He added that the printer "offers high-end production printing at revolutionary speeds up to 30 D/A1-size prints per minute as well as two 775 millilitre ink cartridges per colour with automatic switching and up to six rolls - more than 3,900 feet (1,200 metres) - of media for sustained productivity."
