HP Designjet 815mfp Combines Scanning and Printing

Multifunction wide-format printer saves floor space

Big Picture

For reprographic firms, copy shops, and government offices seeking an easy way to scan and copy posters, engineering drawings, satellite photos, maps, and other wide-format documents, HP offers the Designjet 815mfp. The multifunction device combines a wide-format scanner, a wide-format printer, a front-panel PC, keyboard, and software in a limited amount of floorspace.

The scanner handles originals up to 43-in. wide and 0.6-in. thick at speeds of up to 1.5 in./sec in color and resolutions of up to 2400 dpi with 24 bit color. The graphical touchscreen display enables untrained users to scan, print, and copy large-format documents. The printer is a four-color, 42-in. wide unit that can output at resolutions of 2400 x 1200 dpi.

Current owners of Designjet printers can create their own integrated scan/print/copy systems by networking the HP Designjet Scanner 4200 to their existing HP Designjet 500/800/1000/5000 series printers. The estimated street price of the complete HP Designjet 815mfp is $20,995. Or, the Designjet Scanner 4200 can be purchased separately for about $17,995. (Hewlett-Packard: www.designjet.hp.com)
