HP print providers around the world can benefit from the HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press, opening new digital business opportunities in professional and wedding photo printing, as well as upscale commercial and gallery applications using the industry’s widest range of print applications, substrates and inks.
“The HP Indigo 12000 HD offers new growth opportunities through higher value, higher margin prints, along with the productivity and automation needed for customers to streamline operations and stay competitive,” said Alon Bar-Shany, GM, HP Indigo, HP Inc. “HP Indigo digital printing allows for customers to also help reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste with on-demand printing and shorter runs for print applications.”
The B2 sheetfed HP Indigo 12000 HD digital press achieves outstanding smoothness and sharpness using the HP Indigo HD Imaging System, a high-definition writing head that doubles print resolution and surpasses offset quality with an extended array of screening capabilities. More than 750 units of Indigo’s B2 sheet-fed platform are already installed, including the Indigo 10000, Indigo 12000 and now Indigo 12000 HD.
Any HP Indigo 12000 digital press can upgrade to HD technology offering a range of LPI screens – 220LPI, 250LPI and 290LPI. The HDFM screen mode, available on the HP Indigo 12000 HD, uses randomly-placed, smaller printing dots to create a new level of sharpness, ideal for applications with detailed images.
Global print service providers include District Photo, Druckverlag Kettler, Duggal Visual Solutions, Jinan Double 100 Photo, Pureprint, R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD), and Suvi Color Lab.
Duggal Visual Solutions of New York bought an HP Indigo 12000 and upgraded to the HP Indigo HD.
Duggal recently printed the world’s first sustainably printed fashion magazine through HP’s partnership with Elle Magazine.
RRD was the first print provider in the US to adopt the new technology a year ago.
“We were early adopters of the HP Indigo 12000 HD press because we saw an opportunity to put new print technology directly into the hands of our clients," said Craig Roberton, president, RRD Commercial Print. "Since adding six HP Indigo presses to our platform, we have helped our clients improve the efficiency of their print communications programs while also providing them with a broader range of creative execution possibilities. Through this and other investments, we are enhancing the ability of our clients to better connect with their customers through personalized communications, delivered at scale."
