Initial print quality study of the HP T300 web presses released

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Melville, NY - SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory, the premier consulting, test and analysis organization for the digital imaging industry, today released a white paper summarizing the results of an independent comparative print quality study of the HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press. The White Paper is available at Ipex 2010 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, United Kingdom, Booth 12-AB150, and by download, at no charge, from the SpencerLab website.

The SpencerLab division of Spencer & Associates Publishing, Ltd. was commissioned by HP [NYSE: HPQ] to perform an initial comparison of the print quality of the HP T300 Web Press with 133-line and 175-line Offset, on comparable media. SpencerLab analysis found that the overall print quality of the T300 Web Press with ColorPRO media was comparable to 175-line uncoated Offset; the print quality with commercially available, un-optimized plain paper was generally comparable to 133-line uncoated Offset; and with coated media, print quality of the T300 in some areas exceeded 175-line coated Offset.

Testing utilized documents, appropriate for the range of intended applications, from the SpencerLab Printer Test Suite (ver. 4.2) - an industry standard to facilitate the evaluation of Print Quality. On-site printing was supervised by SpencerLab personnel and the analysis was performed by a skilled team of SpencerLab analysts, noting the areas of tints & blends, images, text & lines, and color gamut & black density.

SpencerLab is looking forward to analyzing and documenting the continued progress of inkjet web press print quality. Visit the SpencerLab website for updates, as available.
