HP Unveils Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer
Kuala Lumpur (9 January 2014) – 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 of media rolls and viewing the status of print jobs.
“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 Serena Yong, General Manager, PPS, Malaysia & Singapore, HP.. “Extending HP’s new design features to a multifunction device will help improve productivity and enhance all types of working environments.”
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 printer’s Embedded Web Server (EWS) gives users added control, allowing them to submit files, manage job queues, track print jobs, accurately calculate the costs of each individual print, as well as create multiple destination folders within their network in order to manage scans in a secure manner. Users can also enable nesting, which will allow jobs to be printed side by side, thus enhancing productivity, minimizing wastage and saving costs on media.
The new HP Designjet ePrint & Share driver allows users to select borderless printing(2), helps create accurate previews minimizing ink and media wastage, and allows users to upload print and scan jobs onto the cloud for sharing and reprint. The full-colour touch screen of T2500 makes the MFP simple and easy to operate, with easy access to all of the printer’s web connectivity features.
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 recently introduced platform of the HP Designjet T920 and T1500 ePrinters.
Connect to the cloud with HP Designjet ePrint & Share
The HP Designjet ePrinter portfolio features HP Designjet ePrint & Share, a free web service that makes it easy to access, view and print large-format documents using an Android or Apple tablet, a smartphone, a notebook or an ePrinter touch screen.(3)
Together with HP Designjet ePrint & Share, the web-connected HP Designjet T2500 eMultifunction Printer allows users to automatically save copies of projects to the cloud when scanning or printing.(3) Users also can email projects to the device for printing by attaching a PDF or other print-ready file to an email, and sending it directly to the ePrinter’s dedicated email address.(3)
