Engineers and designers always want faster printers, color if possible, and capable of generating large drawings and technical documents.

To meet that need, Hewlett-Packard Co., Palo Alto, Calif. (hp.com), has brought out the Designjet 4500 Series of printers. The units output two D/A-1 prints in color in less than 1 min, up to 100/hr. It can deliver prints measuring 2,400 3 1,200 dpi with 0.1% line accuracy. Users save time with driverless multifile printing that needs only a TCP/IP connection and a Web browser. The devices support a range of formats, including TIFF, JPEG, CALS/G4, HR-RTL, HP-GL/2, Adobe Postscript Level 3, and PDF 1.5t, The printers also serve as a scanner, scanning three ips (color) and 10 ips (black and white).
