HP Transforms Large-format Printing Process with New Ergonomically Designed ePrinters

New HP Designjet ePrinters improve user experience for architecture, engineering, construction and design professionals

Mumbai,India, July 15, 2013 — HP today introduced two web-connectedprintersthat will transformthe large-formatprinting processwith a new ergonomic design, delivering an improved user experience forarchitecture, engineering, construction and designprofessionals.

Today, design professionals are more mobile than ever—moving among offices, job sites and airports. Additionally, the design process is highly collaborative, taking place between different teams and across different time zones.

The new HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinter seriesare designed to help busy workgroups complete work efficiently and meet deadlinesby printing correctly from the start with true print previews anddelivering fast, high-quality prints. Additionally, these devices help users onthe go access, view and print projects from the cloud so they can collaborate easily with remote teams.

HP designed the 36-inch devicesbased 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 thedevices change the way users collect and organize large-format output.  The integrated output stacking tray is builtin on top of the device and delivers flat, collated prints. This new output system improves productivity by reducing time spent searching through and organizing printouts, andit 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 speedsin the market.(1)
