Working together just got simpler. Meet HP’s app-based and cloud connected multi-function printer portfolio designed for the architecture, engineering and design community. With seamless set-up and cloud-based connectivity, the portfolio is designed to print, scan and copy from virtually anywhere, with smart apps, interfaces and overall fewer “clicks” to print. Easy and direct “ready when you are” printing means teams of all sizes can better collaborate and move projects forward faster and more efficiently.

The new HP DesignJet T1600 printers and T2600 MFPs, and HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP are the latest additions to the world’s most secure Large Format printers.[1] HP’s security technology provides the best network protection and keeps the fleet secure, to help prevent print related data loss that can cost $400,000 on average per year.[2]

HP is also introducing HP PageWide XL 3900 to help teams boost efficiency. Completing the portfolio are new printers for small business and home. The new HP DesignJet T100 and T500 are compact and designed to complement smaller workspaces requiring faster data and mobile communications.

“7 out of 10 architects are being regularly interrupted during work to print for colleagues.[3] This seemingly small challenge means there is friction that is holding them back from the next great project,” says Guayente Sanmartín, general manager and global head, HP Large Format Design Printing. “HP is leading the transformation in Large Format for small to medium-size businesses so the workplace printing experience feels as smart and easy as it does at home, enhanced with security for peace-of-mind.”

The new HP DesignJet T1600 and T2600, HP DesignJet XL 3600 MFP, and HP PageWide XL 3900 MFP features:
