HP Introduces New Low Solvent Inks for the Outdoor Graphics Printing Market

HP today announced new HP 781 and 791 Printing Supplies, available in early 2009, for the HP Designjet 8000, 
9000 and 10000 Printer series. Designed specifically for these low-solvent printers, the new ink formulations 
provide the reliable performance, ease of use, and vivid, durable prints that customers rely on when producing 
high-impact signage.

"HP is committed to providing our customers with first-class supplies to meet their specific needs," said Santiago 
Morera, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. "This new 
set of supplies takes advantage of the HP supply chain to deliver the pricing and availability customers demand."

Customers can change to the new HP 781 and HP 791 Ink Cartridges as each color of the HP 780 or HP 790 
Ink Cartridges is ready to be replaced. Because the new inks are compatible with the old inks, customers can 
use current HP 780 and HP 790 cleaning and maintenance supplies with the new ink cartridges.

"Replacing the current inks with the new ones HP has developed was extremely simple. When the printer 
advised a new cartridge was needed, we installed a cartridge of the new inks," said Ronald Niner, owner, 
Creative Graphic Services USA. "We didn’t need to replace the printheads or do anything else. The printer 
performed reliably before and continues to do so now."

Prints produced with the new HP 781 and 791 Printing Supplies achieve up to three years of display permanence 
without lamination and are scratch-, smear- and crack-resistant.

Additionally, HP is ending its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Seiko I Infotech (SIIT) to 
jointly develop and market future low solvent-based large-format printers for the outdoor graphics printing market.
HP and SIIT have jointly agreed to work separately in this market space.

HP plans to continue to sell the HP Designjet 8000, 9000 and 10000 printers, which were developed under the 
OEM agreement, in 2009 and to provide parts, supplies and customer support to the installed base of customers 
with these products. The company is also developing new solutions – such as the HP Designjet L65500 – that 
will meet the needs of these customers.

Early success and worldwide availability for HP Designjet L65500
The HP Designjet L65500, announced at DRUPA 2008, is now available in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and 
North America, and is expected to be available in Latin America and Asia Pacific in March.

The wide-format printer is already experiencing strong customer demand with nearly 25 early installations 
completed. Benefits of this new latex printing technology include exceptional image quality, versatility of media 
choices, increased productivity and the ability to attract new customers who are looking for a more 
environmentally conscious printing process.
