HP Designjet 4520 Scanner
Streamline workflow and improve productivity by bringing
large-format, color scanning in-house to complement your current
large-format printing capability. Use the included software to
integrate the scanner into your existing production environment.
Enable powerful color copy/scan functions
in-house
• Outstanding scan performance increases efficiency. With
scan speeds up to 3 in (76 mm) per second color and 10 in
(254 mm) per second black-and-white, the HP Designjet 4520
Scanner delivers outstanding copy and scan performance and
increases efficiency. Scan, then save, print or copy and move
on to the next task.
• High processing speed makes short work of large files. The HP
Designjet 4520 Scanner comes standard with an embedded
operating system and an Intel Pentium® 4 processor. The 2.6
GHz processing speed, 1 GB memory, and 40 GB hard disk
enable faster scan and copy performance.
• Powerful scan resolution creates high-quality images with
realistic colors and precise lines. Use the HP Designjet 4520
Scanner to create scans that have a level of detail that is
comparable to the originals. With a resolution of 508 dpi
optical and up to 9600 dpi enhanced from three CCD
cameras, and a 0.1 percent line accuracy, your scanned
files are indistinguishable from new output, and reproduce
the original documents precisely. The monochrome Dual
2D-Adaptive enhancement technology produces clean and
crisp scans even from poor-quality originals.
• Produce large-format color and black-and-white scans from
wide or thick, rigid originals. Add scanning functionality to
produce electronic files and hard copies of color and blackand-white documents. The scanner accepts originals up to
43 in (1092 mm) wide and 0.6 in (15.2 mm) thick, so you
can handle oversized and heavyweight originals even those
mounted on foam board. The 42 in (1067 mm) scan area
captures wide-format images for easy printing, copying, and
saving. The scanner does not limit scan length.
• Low support cost. Service certain parts more easily yourself
and rely on HP’s award-winning service.

system
1 Only valid for connection with the HP
Designjet 4020/4520 Printer series.
• Closed-loop color calibration gives you consistent color
reproduction. Every scan, copy, and print contains the same
colors as the original document. Create and store your custom
media profiles to obtain outstanding color accuracy - print
after print. and JPEG with embedded ICC profiles, offset
emulation, HP CMYK Plus, Black Point compensation, and
PANTONE® calibration (PS only).
• Integration with the printer enables excellent ease of use,
copy quality, and performance.1 The Designjet 4520 Scanner’s
integrated copy system features real-time printer, media,
and queue information in the scanner user interface, copy
accounting in the printer, and copy job priority capability.
• Preconfigured drivers and network connectivity integrate your
entire HP production system. With the HP Designjet 4520
Scanner, you don’t have to worry about device compatibility.
The preconfigured drivers and built-in network connectivity
make it easy to print and copy directly to your HP Designjet
5x0/800 series, 1000 series, 40x0/45x0 series, 5x00 series,
T610/T11x0 series, Z2100/Z3x00 series and Z6100 series
products. Eliminate user retraining by including this scanner in
your HP design-and-production solution.
• Easily save scanned files in PDF, TIFF, JPEG2000, and DWF file
format.
• Easy to integrate with a variety of third party applications. These
range from scan applications and raster-to-vector conversion to
document management.

button
• Use the touchscreen graphical display for easy, intuitive
operation. Even untrained users can produce great copy and
scan results from the intuitive, 15 in (381 mm) touchscreen
display. The graphical interface walks the user through the
appropriate procedure to produce the type of document or file
that you need. Rather than mixing different brands, simply add
the HP Designjet 4520 Scanner to the HP Designjet products
that you already know and trust.
