Salt Lake City, Utah, USA – SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional signmaking, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, has today announced that its acclaimed Flexi wide-format printing and signmaking software has been certified by HP for use with the latest additions to its Latex 300 Printer series, which were launched at SGIA in the USA.
Both SAi Flexi & SAi FlexiPRINT HP Latex Editions are certified on all models in the new series – the HP Latex 315, 335, 365 and 375 Printers – and follows the recent certification of all printers in HP’s Latex 500 series portfolio. For users, this provides maximum control over output speed and ensures supreme quality prints, while also supporting accelerated time-to-market and reduced production costs. Providing further convenience to print providers, SAi FlexiPRINT HP Basic Edition is available in the box as standard with the HP Latex 315 and 335 printers.
Latest SAi Flexi update now supports continuous printing
In addition to launching its latest HP Latex 300 Series Printers, HP has upgraded the firmware for its exiting 300 series and 500 series printers. To support the new HP firmware, SAi has released a new matching software build, SAi FlexiPRINT 12 Build #2402, which includes HP certified drivers in FlexiPRINT HP Basic, Premium and SIGN-Pro editions.
The latest SAi FlexiPRINT HP Edition software delivers a number of new benefits to large format print providers, including better support for printing simultaneously to multiple devices. These users also enjoy support for the new HP Online Media Manager server, ink prediction*, continuous job printing support and easier network device location.
All new orders of SAi FlexiPRINT 12 Basic, Premium and SIGN-Pro editions will include the newest HP Latex drivers and upgraded features. Current users with existing builds of FlexiPRINT 12 HP Edition will be able to upgrade for free. Users will receive a notification with instructions about upgrading when they run their software.
“SAi is proud to announce that we are not simply releasing drivers for HP’s latest Latex printers, but importantly, drivers that are fully certified – something that demonstrates the strong and long-standing relationship that we continue to enjoy with HP,” says Sarit Tichon, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, SAi.
“SAi is an HP Platinum Level HP Partner, a deserved status that recognizes the quality and compatibility of SAi RIP solutions with specified printers,” she adds. “This means that print providers using HP printers with SAi certified drivers can be assured that their hardware and software will work seamlessly together, which results in a more streamlined workflow and reduced production costs for their businesses.”
