New Upgrade Package for HP Scitex XP2300
HP unveiled an upgrade package, set for commercial release on September 15 of this year, to expand the range of media that can be used on its inkjet-based Scitex XP2300 wide-format printer.
According to HP, the upgrade package is designed for high-volume print service providers who are interested in a UV-curable alternative to solvent-ink production. The HP Scitex XP2300 machine now offers billboard print modes for printing directly on what the company refers to as inexpensive banner materials.
With these print modes, designed for HP Specialty Billboard Scitex Inks, customers can achieve a glossy or matte finish while using a single ink set. Customers who install the upgrade also begin receiving support through HP Scitex Print Care, a set of tools and services to handle technical issues, enable remote diagnosis and provide performance information.
“Since introducing the HP Scitex XP2300 Printer, we have been working closely with our customers to identify the features that would enable them to move more jobs from their solvent devices to this proven, UV-curable platform,” said Yariv Avisar, VP and GM, Scitex Large-format Solutions, HP.
