HP Grows Designjet T-series Portfolio with New High-end eMultifunction Large-format Printer
PALO ALTO, Calif. – HP today announced the HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer (eMFP), which brings new customer-driven design features to a single, compact device that scans, prints and copies to help highly mobile teams work together better and faster.
For architects, engineers, construction (AEC) and geographic information system (GIS) firms, as well as government agencies and enterprise customers, scanning large-format color documents is one of the most effective ways to review and communicate changes. However, large-format scanning is a time-consuming and complex process. In addition, many scanners today are still separate devices from in-office, large-format printers.
The HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer features an integrated scanner, which makes it easy to scan and send sketches to team members, as well as incorporate hand-annotated changes. Additionally, the printer’s ergonomic design relieves traditional pain points with features like an integrated output stacking tray, two-roll front media loading with smart switching and an intuitive touch screen that allows monitoring media rolls and viewing status of the printing jobs
“We are in constant communication with our clients as projects develop, and we often work through multiple rounds of reviews before a plan is final,” said Debbie Garcia, project coordinator, Inland Engineering Services, Inc. “Previously when clients provided changes, we had to scan in sections at a time. With the HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer, we can now easily scan large plans that include hand-noted changes and immediately update the design file, which helps move projects forward faster and also allows us to work with our clients in real time.”
New HP Designjet printer design follows customer feedback
Designed together with customers from around the world, the HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer has a 30 percent smaller footprint than its predecessor.(1)
The integrated output stacking tray delivers flat, collated prints, helping teams stay organized between multiple projects. With two-roll, front media loading, customers can print projects that require different paper types and sizes without having to change the roll. The printer also offers a wider variety of media options with the ability to print up to AO/E print sizes. Additionally, the intuitive, full-color touch screen also gives users added control with the ability to manage job queues, track print costs, print borderless images(2) and view true print previews.
Built to increase efficiencies for medium-sized and enterprise businesses, the new design and functionalities of the HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer build on the recent introduction of the HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinters.
“We have seen a great shift in how architecture, engineering and construction firms work, evolving from teams operating out of a central location to a rising number of remote workgroups with increased firm-to-firm collaboration,” said Ramon Pastor, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing, HP. “Extending HP’s new design features to a multifunction device will help improve productivity and enhance all types of working environments.”
