Wasatch Supports HP Designjet Z Series Inkjet Printers
Press release from the issuing company
Salt Lake City, UT, May 2007 — Wasatch Computer Technology today announced it has added support for the HP Designjet Z6100 Printer Series. This completes SoftRIP support for the full line HP Z-series devices, also including the HP Designjet Z2100 and HP Designjet Z3100 series printers. As the only inkjet RIP to offer 16-bit color rendering, SoftRIP will allow HP users to achieve unparalleled quality output. Wasatch RIP products also include key features for sophisticated color management, intuitive direct-to-layout workflows, and automated Smart Nesting.
HP's Z-series Designjet printers deliver exceptional quality output that is further enhanced with SoftRIP's 16-bit pipeline for high-definition printing. When pairing SoftRIP with the Designjet Z series, shade subtleties are reproduced with enormous detail, and vector gradients are perfectly smooth at any output size.
"SoftRIP maintains more data on every color point than other RIPs," says Jay Griffin, Executive Vice President at Wasatch. "With 16-bit color, a high quality device like the HP Z6100 will print high definition output that matches the original source image with incredible clarity."
Printer drivers for the HP Designjet Z6100, HP Designjet Z3100, and HP Designjet Z2100 are included in all standard versions of Wasatch SoftRIP released on or after May 2, 2007. The Z-series drivers are also included in the SoftRIP HP Exclusive Edition, a premium RIP solution available to HP users at an entry-level price. SoftRIP drivers for the HP Z Photo Printer Series support the on-board spectrophotometer for calibration tasks.
