  6. HP launches the world’s most secure large format printers for GIS mapping

    HP launches the world’s most secure large format printers for GIS mapping

    HP Inc. today introduced HP DesignJet T1700 printers, next-generation 44-inch solutions for CAD and geographic information system (GIS) workgroups to produce highly accurate documents and maps with powerful processing and a new level of security.

    New added features on the HP DesignJet T1700 make it the most secure large format workgroup printer available today1. The improved security is designed to help enterprises print CAD and GIS applications while protecting printers and data from unauthorised or malicious access in infrastructure construction, urban planning as well as utilities industries such as oil, water, gas, and electricity.

    “Security is a top concern in enterprises today as connected devices and increasingly open office spaces are pervasive. At the same time, data breaches are growing at an alarming pace. In the first half of 2017, the worldwide breach level index was up more than 160% 2” said Guayente Sanmartin, General Manager and Global Head, HP Large Format Design Printing, HP Inc. “The HP DesignJet T1700 Printer Series includes unique advanced security technologies designed to keep corporate network printers, their documents and data protected.”

    Features include a new self-encrypting hard drive on the printer ensures it is only readable by the printer itself, even if removed from the device. For additional device security, HP Secure Boot ensures BIOS protection, and Whitelisting3 only allows approved firmware to be installed and run on the device.

    HP DesignJet T1700

    Workgroups print seamlessly with a powerful processor

    GIS files are constantly growing in size with the increase in their complexity and data. To smoothly process this information and improve the printing experience of GIS practitioners, the new 44-inch HP DesignJet T1700 printer offers a new, powerful processing architecture using a 500 GB hard disk.

    As the first workgroup large-format printer to embed the Adobe PDF Print Engine4, it can more efficiently handle very heavy files. As a result, PCs can be freed in virtually no time to continue working.

    The HP DesignJet T1700 also brings improved color quality and precision for more accurate maps and renderings, enabling GIS workgroups to make better decisions. A new set of six HP Bright Office Inks with tuned colours profiles and a High Density Printhead deliver bold colour and accurate image quality, in addition to more precise colours, including gray and soft tones.

    Additionally, HP Click printing software included in this series can be used by everyone on the team to easily print project sets and PDF documents.


    1. Based on internal analysis of current workgroup large-format printers for CAD and GIS. Workgroup large-format printers are color printers with printing speeds below 3 A1/D-size pages-per-minute and prices below $10K.
    2. Breach Level Index 2017 H1 Report, Gemalto.
    3. The Whitelisting feature will be available in mid-2018. Requires purchase of HP DesignJet T1700 PostScript® models or optional HP DesignJet PostScript/PDF Upgrade Kit. The Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) is Adobe’s high speed, high fidelity print platform.

    HP showcases power of digital décor printing

    Today at Heimtextil, HP Inc. unveiled a new collection of digitally printed interiors in designer curated rooms, each serving a specific purpose, as HP continues to grow digital décor printing opportunities for print service providers and creative possibilities for designers.

    HP also introduced HP Indigo Wallpaper, an HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press solution for wallpaper manufacturers to transition from analog production to a digital color printing process with gravure quality, and benefit from on-demand printing, faster time-to-market, and reduced waste.

    In collaboration with a team of designers led by Jennifer Castoldi, each concept room at HP’s Heimtextil booth tells a story that comes to life using HP Latex and HP Indigo décor printing technology. The designs tackle contemporary issues such as aging, sustainability, global warming and endangered species in interior settings including a living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and dentist’s ’s office.

    “With HP digital décor printing, interior design applications have amazing possibilities. Any idea of any size can come to life anywhere, on wallcoverings, printed flooring, textiles and furniture,” said Castoldi, CEO and Chief Creative Director, Trendease International. “This technology is a creativity enabler providing new opportunities to designers.”

    Growing décor opportunities with HP digital

    The HP Indigo Wallpaper launch is yet another example of the growing HP print technology portfolio for décor.

    For high-volume endless printing or a new design every meter, the new HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press Wallpaper solution is capable of producing endless printing at 1515 sq.m. per hour with a 74 cm width.

    The industry-proven HP Indigo 20000 is digitally programmed for repeat, frameless printing, making it ideal for repeated pattern wallpaper applications and more. Wallpapers for the press are available to HP customers through suppliers such as Felix Schoeller and Van Merksteijn.

    HP also recently announced a new range of durable textiles certified for HP Latex printers to produce soft signage and décor applications, combining durability and outstanding print quality with the benefits of water-based HP Latex technology. The new textiles from select media vendors1 expand possibilities for durable HP Latex printing for soft signage and also enable new décor applications, including curtains and blinds, cushions, lampshades, and bags, on materials made from 100% cotton, cotton linen or polyester. Some of the new textiles can also achieve washability with a heating process after printing.

    HP Latex water-based inks now also received ECO PASSPORT Certification from Oeko-Tex®, for textile applications. Key benefits of Latex printing technology are print quality and sustainability benefits.

    “The environmental strengths of Latex are unbeatable, making it the technology the choice of hospitals and schools,” said Terry Raghunath, Business Development Manager for HP printed decorative applications. “With our Latex water-based technology, there is no odor during or post-production. Prints are bright and detailed from material to material, printers can deliver a wide range of applications and formats.”

  9. Canon launches imagePROGRAF TX series to satisfy high end productivity

    Canon launches imagePROGRAF TX series to satisfy high end productivity

    Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, has launched a completely new line-up of large format inkjet printers: the imagePROGRAF TX-2000, TX-3000 and TX-4000, available in 24-inch, 36-inch and 44-inch sizes.  The new devices offer productivity, usability and security, alongside beautiful print quality and low running costs, making it ideal for both the high-end CAD inkjet market and the entry-level LED plotter market. The series also includes an MFP solution, imagePROGRAF TX-3000MFP T36 and TX-4000MFP T36, equipped with fast scanning, and newly developed LUCIA TD pigment ink. With updates to all core technologies including the ink system, print head and mechanical platform, the new imagePROGRAF TX series printers are perfect for customers looking for high-production, high-quality printing, in colour and at competitive speeds.

    ImagePROGRAF TX Series Printers

    Superior print quality with every sheet

    The newly developed LUCIA TD ink produces fine lines, sharp text and vibrant colours, making it perfect for high-precision CAD drawings and posters alike. Specifically formulated for weather resistance, including water resistance, printed drawings can be viewed at outdoor construction or engineering sites, in long-term storage and on outdoor posters. Thanks to superb colour reproduction even on plain paper, ink performance exceeds the needs for poster quality on both coated and uncoated paper.

    Duncan Smith, Canon UK’s , states: “The world of print continues to change and Canon is pioneering in the industry to ensure we’re delivering against the changing needs of our customers. Where previously, CAD drawings were printed in centres using LED plotters, today, many offices or construction sites require their own inkjet printers to produce drawings on demand. In response to this, we’ve designed a high performance, high-speed inkjet that’s ideally suited to replace entry-level LED plotters that comes with a host of other advantages such as colour printing, low TCO as well as unbeatable quality and sharpness.”

    Game changing productivity

    All models in the imagePROGRAF TX series, including the 36-inch, can be expanded with two rolls. The optional dual-roll system enables high-volume printing from two rolls of the same kind, or hassle-free switching between different media types to meet various printing needs. The imagePROGRAF TX series also accepts rolls up to 170mm in diameter, with the lower unit equipped with a multifunction roll system, enabling users to take advantage of the continuous output and rewinding printouts on rolls. A new high-capacity stacker also offers holding room for 100 A0 sheets, and can be easily folded up to save space when not in use.

    The series includes an MFP solution equipped with a 36 inch Colortrac scanner. The scanner features a generous 15.6-inch touchscreen panel, streamlined structure, integrated design and SmartWorks MFP version 5 with customisable menus and buttons. The new copy and archive mode improves productivity and makes it ideal for supporting office workflows, whatever the printing environment. The intuitive UI, straightforward roll loading and direct printing from USB flash drives offer optimum usability.

    Powerful and secure printing

    With a powerful L-COA PRO high-speed image processor, even data-heavy HP-GL/2 files such as electrical CAD drawings with intricate lines can be processed quickly. In addition, newly added disk encryption, protocol locking and secure data transmission makes the imagePROGRAF TX series devices some of the most robust on the market, with measures such as SNMPv3 and IPSec support to prevent leaks and intrusions.

    Hiroaki Shirakawa, LFP Product Management Manager, Canon Europe, concludes: “The newest line-up of products has advanced features to expand into higher-volume print markets, in a compact model, suitable for any office size. The imagePROGRAF TX Series is dedicated to a high balance between print quality, speed and productivity, alongside other enhancements such as more reliable security. Fast printing, high-precision, usability and compatibility with CAD systems are fundamental requirements for both users of high-end inkjets and entry-level LED plotters. We’re looking forward to launching our new product line-up this year. ”

    The new imagePROGRAF TX series and their MFPs will be available across EMEA from early December 2017

    • Consumer Imaging - input solutions such as film and digital SLR cameras, digital still compact cameras, camcorders, binoculars, calculators and scanners and output solutions - inkjet and laser printers, faxes, desktop all-in-ones and multimedia projectors.

    In addition to our business and consumer operations, Canon's Broadcast Division is an extension of our product portfolio covering the supply and servicing of professional lenses and their accessories to the Television Broadcasting industry.

    Heritage

    Canon’s success story began in Japan in the 1930s, when a small group of enthusiastic scientists set out to establish their presence in camera technology. The company first established a presence in the UK in 1976. At that time its activities were confined to the sale of calculators, micrographic equipment, copiers and similar products for the business market. In 1982 a separate camera sales operation was merged to form Canon (UK) Ltd, and since then the company has grown to become a world-leading provider of market-driven digital imaging solutions for the office and home environments.

    Company philosophy – "Kyosei"

    In 1988, one year after celebrating its 50th anniversary, Canon first adopted “kyosei” meaning “living and working together for the common good” as the corporate philosophy. Nowhere is this better reflected than at Canon’s UK headquarters at Woodhatch near Reigate in Surrey where the emphasis is strongly on achieving greater harmony between individuals and their working environment.

    Our headquarters

    Canon invested more than £21 million in the construction of its UK Headquarters at Woodhatch, Surrey, and the building was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in April 2000. The purpose-built head office fuses visually stunning architecture with the latest in business solutions technology. The environmentally friendly building is landscaped to blend into the natural slope of a hill, preserving existing meadowland and tree areas.

    The concept of energy conservation was adopted from the outset, with the recycling of demolition material and the preservation of the original site. Solar panels generate up to 35kw of power, and energy is further conserved through various features, including a natural air conditioning system and the use of special heat-absorbing concrete. Designed to showcase the company’s cutting edge products, the building is not only a landmark but also a symbol that represents everything Canon values - a "living showroom".

    Awards

    Woodhatch is the recipient of nine awards including the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust 2001 Building of the Year Award, and the project also achieved the highest rating by BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) for its energy saving initiatives. This impressive building made such an impact in its own community that it won The Reigate Society Award 2000. Other awards received were The Civic Trust Award 2001, British Council for Offices (Best Corporate Workplace 2000), British Institute of Facility Managers (Green Office of the Year Award 1999), Institution of Structural Engineers (Structural Award 2000), Brick Awards 2000 (encompassing Best Commercial Building and Landscape Project) and the Times/Gestetner Digital Office Collection 2000.
