HP HD Pro 42-in Large Format Scanner Data Sheet


For over thirty years, HP has been transforming the way design professionals in Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Geospatial and Graphics markets operate. In the late 1970’s, HP developed the first pen plotter and HP-GL graphics language, now the industry standard. In the early 1990’s, HP invented inkjet technology and applied it to DesignJet printers, making large format printing in black-and-white easy, fast and affordable. HP continued to innovate, and introduced colour, faster printing speeds, and the ability to print high resolution images and complex files in large format in the same decade. In the new millennium, faster printing speeds and sunlight-resistant UV inks were introduced, allowing Print Service Providers and Graphics Designers to create applications for both indoor and outdoor use. Photographers began to adopt HP large format printing to replace silver halide, demonstrating HP’s ability to deliver superior image quality with prints lasting up to 200 years. In 2010, with the rise of mobility and globalisation, HP launched its first generation of ePrinters with web-connectivity features and the first multifunction large format ePrinters with copying, scanning and printing in a single device. HP have shipped over 3 million DesignJet printers around the world and are the leader in the market with the widest range of large format printers for design professionals, whether single or multi-user environments.
