"With the first Web-connected device with scan, print and copy functionality and the new HP ePrint & Share platform, HP makes large-format printing easier, allowing architecture, engineering and construction professionals to spend more time creating and building," said Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, Designjet Large-Format Solutions, HP. "The awards from BERTL and Buyers Lab demonstrate our ability to deliver a significantly lower total cost of ownership and improved collaboration and mobility to design professionals."
The color touchscreen HP Designjet T2300 eMFP provides page previews and the ability to scan sketches and hand annotated drawings in one click to create print-ready files shared directly through HP ePrint & Share. Available for download at www.hp.com/go/eprintandshare, HP ePrint & Share is a printing and sharing tool allowing designers in the architecture, engineering and construction industry to easily locate and access large-format plans on the cloud, and to adjust page layouts, preview print pages and create print-ready files from a single screen.
The HP Designjet T7100 Printer is designed for central reprographic departments in enterprises and reproduction houses. It streamlines print production for customers needing to print in monochrome and color – from simple CAD drawings to high-quality presentations. With a competitively low total cost of ownership, the printer provides an alternative to devices that print only in monochrome or color and light-emitting diode technologies, which can be expensive to maintain.
