Wide-format HP inkjet allows remote printing of plans and diagrams. Scanning and copying is also supported.Architect and engineering offices being fine examples of high-tech SMBs, I was intrigued to see HP announce the ePrint version of the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP, a wide-format unit for printing, scanning, and copying design documents up to 44 inches wide. If you need one, there's probably no substitute.
I pointed this out, days passed while wheels turned, and I got answers:
Price: $8,450 US
Colors: six (cyan, gray, magenta, matte black, photo black, yellow)
Printer DPI: 2400x2400, +/- 0.1% line accuracy
Scanner DPI: 600x600
Line Drawing Speed: 28 seconds per page on A1/D, or 103 A1/D prints per hour
Color Image Printing Speed: 445 square feet per hour in Fast mode; 33.3 square feet per hour in Best mode
Ink cartridges: $69 per for 130 ml, with a yield varying from 38,714 square feet on plain paper with color schematics to 1,130 square feet for photo-realistic color images on photo gloss paper.
Meanwhile, the ePrint designation means that it does not need to be directly connected to a computer. If it is on the Internet you can send files to it via e-mail.
Finally, publicity people of the world: these were not difficult or obscure questions, especially the unit price. Sure, you'd rather produce videos of models with their sleeves rolled up using the hardware in immaculately styled offices. I've been there. But inevitably someone will ask "How much?" They're never going to ask about the color scheme the models are wearing. Please plan accordingly.
