As a result of the new alliance with Imaging Solutions, whose customers include leading photofinishers and global photo labs, HP Indigo users will benefit from multiple finishing capabilities. In addition, alliance will help expand HP Indigo’s range of finishing devices for photo specialty applications and complete the HP Indigo Photo Prints Solution.
The new solutions will also help HP to provide a cost-effective, high quality and lower environmental impact replacement of traditional AgX technology.
