Impressive prints that last
Get vivid, long-lasting quality with HP Vivera

• Output spectacular high-quality color photos,
renderings and presentations. HP 70 Vivera pigment
inks with an 8-ink printing system achieve consistently
outstanding image quality. The precisely placed
4 and 6 pl ink drops, along with resolution of
2400 dpi, highlight even the most intricate details.
• Water-resistant prints resist fading. Your photos,
posters, presentations and maps will be water-resistant1
and will resist fading for over 200 years2 on a
range of basic and specialty media.
• The Three-black ink set (matte black, photo black
and light gray). Ensure true neutral tones and
rich, deep blacks. You can even print on matte
or glossy paper without having to waste time
and ink exchanging cartridges.
Breakthrough color
Achieve consistent and accurate color.
• Expect superior and consistent color from print to
print. The first-ever embedded spectrophotometer
with i1 color technology enables the printer to
automatically generate custom ICC profiles for your
preferred paper and calibrates the printer to deliver
print-to-print and printer-to-printer repeatability.
• Present projects on media that supports your vision.
Achieve consistent colors on a wide range of
papers. Choose from over 30 new HP papers
and other readily available media.

dependable and consistent image quality every
time, the drop-ejection performance of every
nozzle is periodically and automatically tested
with an Optical Drop Detector.
• Eliminate trial and error with real-time layout and
orientation preview. Take the guesswork out of
margins. Save time and materials.
• Spend less time waiting. The new and powerful
internal processor uses 128 MB of standard memory
and a 40 GB hard disk so that productivity is high,
even for very complex prints. And thanks to HP
Vivera pigment inks, the output dries instantly and
can be used as soon as it has been printed.
• Benefit from HP Services. A number of complimentary
services are provided to assist you during installation
and throughout your printing workflow. For

Create exquisite exhibition prints,
portfolios, and digital albums
• Print the desired colors on the first attempt from
Adobe Photoshop® thanks to the free HP Photosmart
Pro print plug-in for Adobe Photoshop,which
synchronizes application and driver settings.
Consistently beautiful, whether it’s in color
or black and white
• Prints resist fading for over 200 years.3
• Smooth color transitions and highlight and shadow
details are preserved.
• Achieve truly neutral grays under different lighting
conditions, continuous tones, uniform gloss, rich
blacks, and the elimination of bronzing as an
image-quality issue.5
• Switch between matte and glossy papers without
having to swap black cartridges.
A care-free experience
• Printing of accurate and consistent colors is
effortless thanks to the HP Color Center and
automated media profiling.
• Added to Adobe Lightroom is a Calibrate Printer
button, enabling you to launch the printer’s color
management tools directly from the application,
the result of close collaboration between HP
and Adobe.
• Integrate one of a range of commercially available
photo RIPs, such as the ImagePrint v.6 RIP from
ColorByte. This RIP gives you advanced options,
including advanced multiple-image placement,
black-and-white split-toning, and PostScript and
PDF printing.

“The HP Designjet Z3100 printer
is a major step forward for
prepress. It has got a built-in
spectrophotometer, which calibrates
the machine and brings it into a
known state, and, because it’s built
in, it’s error free. This printer is like
a color management center.”
Allan Roche
Pixel CMS Ltd.
“Metamerism is very important for
us, and I’ve seen that this inkjet
printer has the lowest metamerism
in the marketplace.”

“By combining the embedded
eye-one color spectrophotometer
together with the latest printing
technologies found in the new HP
Designjet Z Photo Printers, new
ground-breaking standards in
large-format printing have been
established, providing the industry
with a new benchmark.”

allows you to print at top speeds and still 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.
Amazing color
The HP Embedded Spectrophotometer, with i1 Color
Technology from GretagMacbeth, is mounted on
the printer carriage for accurate printer calibration
measurements that deliver print-to-print and printer-toprinter color consistency. It revolutionizes professional
color workflows by systematically creating media profiles,
allowing users to automatically generate custom CMYK
ICC profiles for their preferred media. Also, with the
optional HP Advanced Profiling Solution, you can edit
and modify existing profiles and create RGB profiles.4
HP Optical Media Advance Sensor
HP Embedded Spectrophotometer
HP DreamColor Technologies make it easy for you
to produce accurate, predictable and consistent
color across different printers, presses and media.
The HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series comes
equipped with HP DreamColor Technologies: HP
Professional PANTONE® emulation, HP’s closed-loop
color calibration and automatic ICC profiling with
the HP embedded spectrophotometer and software.
The result? The HP Designjet Z6100 Printer series,
plus HP media and HP 91 Vivera pigment inks,
produce vivid and accurate color prints—print to
print and printer to printer.
High productivity
The HP Easy Printer Care Tool 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 Z6100ps 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.
Outstanding speed
HP Double Swath Technology provides breakthrough
speed and performance. The HP Designjet Z6100
Printer series includes two sets of four HP 91 Vivera
pigment ink printheads, creating a wide print swath—
up to 1.8 inches—and a high firing frequency to deliver
prints with amazing speed.

Non-Adobe PostScript® printers require the HP Advanced Profiling Solution or a 3rd party RIP that supports media profiling.
