HP Indigo Solutions for Growth Discussed at Dscoop5
DALLAS—HP has announced new and updated solutions to drive print service provider (PSP) productivity and profit opportunity, including a new HP SmartStream management information tool and the industry’s first white ink for sheet-fed digital presses.
HP made its announcements at the Digital Solutions Cooperative’s Dscoop5 Conference. HP production printing solutions shown at Dscoop5 help PSPs manage their digital print operations, improve press uptime and enter new markets.
The new HP SmartStream Production Analyzer monitors, benchmarks and reports key metrics, providing customers with a deeper understanding of their HP Indigo print operations so they can improve efficiency.
The newly available HP ElectroInk White—significant achievement for sheet-fed digital presses—helps commercial printing firms and other PSP customers enter new markets for point-of-sale display and greeting card printing.
PSPs looking to expand with folding carton applications can now combine the packaging workflow of the HP SmartStream Labels and Packaging Print Server, powered by Esko with HP Indigo press 5500 and its thick substrate kit upgrade.
HP has extended its HP Indigo Print Care solution, which increases customers’ press uptime with diagnostic and print-quality assistance tools, to support the HP Indigo press 5500.
Updated HP Exstream Remote Collaboration tools provide HP Exstream customers with new document creation and management capabilities.
In addition to these solutions, HP also is showing its newest Indigo press – the HP Indigo W7200 – for the first time at a Dscoop event, highlighting its high-productivity, high-quality imaging features for publishing, photo and transpromotional printing applications. The Dscoop5 Solutions showcase also includes the HP Indigo 5500 and 7000 digital presses, HP SmartStream and HP Exstream software solutions, and HP Designjet and HP Scitex large-format printers.
“The annual Dscoop conference is our most valuable forum to meet with graphic arts customers, learn from them and highlight the ways HP can help them succeed,” said Alon Bar-Shany, vice president and general manager, Indigo division, HP. “The solutions HP is bringing to Dscoop5 exemplify the types of innovations and process improvements that spur continual growth in digital printing.”
