New HP Large-Format MFP Printers Feature Cloud Connectivity, HP Security, More

HP Inc. today introduced new multifunctional large-format printers for architecture, engineering and design applications. It says the new models feature cloud-based connectivity for print, scan, and copy from virtually anywhere, all with smart apps  and overall fewer “clicks” to print.

The new HP DesignJet T1600 printers and T2600 MFPs, and HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP are the latest additions to what HP says are the world’s most secure large-format printers.  It says security technology provides the best network protection and keeps the fleet secure, to help prevent print related data loss that can cost $400,000 on average per year, according to a Quocirca 2019 security report

HP is also introducing HP PageWide XL 3900, as well as  new printers for small business and home use. The new HP DesignJet T100 and T500 are compact and designed to complement smaller workspaces requiring faster data and mobile communications.

“Seven out of 10 architects are being regularly interrupted during work to print for colleagues. This seemingly small challenge means there is friction that is holding them back from the next great project,” commented  Guayente Sanmartín, general manager and global head of the HP Large Format Design Printing. “HP is leading the transformation in large format for small to medium-size businesses so the workplace printing experience feels as smart and easy as it does at home, enhanced with security for peace-of-mind.”
