New HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series brings unbeatable combination of speed, quality and consistency

BOEBLINGEN, Germany, April 10, 2007 – HP today announced the new HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series for 
print service providers (PSPs), and technical printing markets, such as GIS, architectural, engineering and 
construction markets, expanding its industry-leading portfolio with a new level of productivity, versatility and 
dependability for printing in the digital marketplace. With the new HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series, users 
across a number of industries now have a rapid, reliable, colour-accurate solution that enables them to print 
more applications and grow their businesses. 
“HP is continuously looking for ways to reinvigorate the printing market and excite customers with new printing 
possibilities,” said Santi Morera, vice president and general manager of HP EMEA Graphic Arts. “The HP 
Designjet Z6100 Printer series is not only the PSP, GIS and AEC market’s new go-to solution for fast and 
high quality large-format printing needs, but also another step in delivering on our promise to enable customers 
to do more with a broad portfolio of intuitive, scalable solutions.” 
The HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series with HP Vivera pigment inks is perfect for indoor and short term outdoor 
large-format applications such as photo enlargements, photo quality POPs and backlits, fine art prints, 
drawings, maps and renders, delivering colour accurate and high impact prints at maximum print speeds – all 
with HP’s set of colour management technologies. The HP Designjet Z6100 features HP DreamColor 
Technologies, a certified system of colour technologies, such as an embedded spectrophotometer, and 
sciences which make it easy to produce accurate, predictable and consistent colour across a series of digital 
colour devices.
Introducing the most productive large-format printer in its class(1)
The new eight-ink HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series enables digital print shops and sign makers, as well as 
GIS/CAD professionals, to increase print capacity, reduce turnaround times and offer new, high-quality printing 
applications to customers and clients while delivering predictable, consistent colour. 
Offering an attractive combination of speed, image quality and colour consistency for PSPs and technical 
professionals, the new HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series is the ideal solution for all indoor large-format printing 
applications, from photos and fine art prints to maps and renders. Available in 1067 and 1524 mm models, the 
HP Designjet Z6100 shortens response time for the fast-paced PSP environment and handles large volumes 
effortlessly, producing output up over 100 m2/hr. In addition, new HP Double Swath Technology creates a 
wider print swath—up to 46 mm and the first-ever Optical Media Advance Sensor which improves  paper 
advancement control, so the printer can print at higher speeds and across environmental conditions with 
exceptional image quality.
The Art Group, a leading art publisher, requires a fleet of fast, colour-accurate large-format printers for its 
on-demand printing business. 
“Our world-renowned museum clients demand exceptional image quality and colour,” said Peter Moger, 
director, The Art Group. “In our business, we must replicate outstanding museum-quality output from any of 
our printers at any location around the world. The HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series enables us to get 
consistent results with remarkable speed regardless of location, time and environments.”
In addition, the HP Designjet Z6100 features eight HP Vivera pigment inks delivering vivid, water-resistant, 
exceptionally fade-resistant prints. Prints produced on a range of HP media resist fading for over 1 year 
unlaminated and over 3 years laminated when displayed in or near a window. In interior display conditions 
away from direct sunlight, prints resist fading for over 200 years.(2)
