Printing for Africa

1 July 2002

Hewlett-Packard is offering small, medium and large organisations an advanced solution to their colour printing needs - with the HP Colour LaserJet 4600 series printers.
More than simply a quality colour laser printer, the new solutions represent HP's first delivery of a device based on 'in-line' printing technology; they are also powerful, reliable and Web-enabled.
The 'in-line' technology stacks four print cartridges vertically, which enables colour to be printed in a single pass, rather than in four passes as is common in other technologies.
As a result, the Colour LaserJet 4600 can print up to 16 A4 pages per minute, regardless of whether the page is a monochrome e-mail or a high quality four-colour page. The vertical in-line technology does not require a larger operating space either. From a power and performance standpoint, the printer is driven by a 400 MHz PA-RISC processor and up to 416 MB of RAM. It uses firmware and hardware enhancements to reduce calibrations, thus maximising printer uptime. A simple paper path helps avoid paper jams and delivers on a monthly duty cycle of up to 85 000 pages.
It is possible to manage the LaserJet 4600 via a Web interface using either the embedded Web server (EWS) by installing HP's Web Jetadmin software. Third-party printing e-services are also available, offering secure document delivery via the Internet and automatic printing capabilities.
