get great output results. This breakthrough technology improves paper-advance control and
accuracy, so the printer can print at higher speeds across multiple environmental conditions
without impairing image quality.

of FOGRA gamuts. Generate custom ICC profiles with the embedded spectrophotometer with
i1 color technology from X-Rite. Print from your favorite design applications or through RIPs.

The HP DesignJet Utility lets you easily navigate through color-management, printing, and
job-management workflows, and the HP Color Center provides easy-to-use, step-by-step
instructions on how to add new media and calibrate the printer. Plus, the HP DesignJet Z6800
printer’s accounting tool allows you to easily track supplies use by job, while the job submitter
tool lets you submit your HP-RTL, HP-GL/2, CALS G4, PostScript®, PDF, TIFF, EPS, and JPEG files
directly to the printer.
HP Vivid Photo Inks
Three shades of black HP ink produce outstanding optical density and smooth transitions.
Deliver durable prints that stand the test of time. HP 771 Printheads are designed to achieve
precise, accurate placement of smaller drops at high speed. Each printhead prints two colors of
ink with 1,056 nozzles per color.
HP Vivid Photo Inks
Using HP chromatic red ink, your HP DesignJet printing system provides the broad color gamut
needed to produce vibrant color and deep, rich blacks and to achieve true photo-realistic image
quality.
High, uniform gloss provides the professional finish. With a wide range of blacks and grays
with smooth, subtle transitions, true gray neutrality, and rich black density, you can produce
remarkable black-and-white prints. And these prints provide lasting results with exceptional
print permanence indoors in-window and away from direct sun.7
Compared with large-format inkjet printers under $25,000 USD for graphic applications. Based on the fastest-rated color speeds as published by manufacturers as of October 2013. Test
methods vary.
