Key technologies
HP Vivera pigment inks offer outstanding
image quality and fade resistance on a wide
variety of photo and fine art media, along
with water resistance on a range of HP
creative and specialty media. HP’s
proprietary Electrosteric Encapsulation
Technology optimizes the pigment chemistry
and ink properties for stability and
performance to ensure brilliant colors,
outstanding print permanence, and excellent
gloss uniformity, for reliable, accurate, and
consistent printing.
HP’s New Electrosteric Drop Detection (NEDD)
printhead management system closely monitors
all 8,448 print nozzles to minimize cleaning
cycles and keep your printer in top working
condition. When necessary, these cycles clean
only the individual nozzles that require it, in
order to minimize ink waste. The result is
consistently beautiful and economical
gallery-quality pigment prints.
HP’s 8-ink printing system includes four
HP 70 Printheads, each printing two colors
of ink with 1,056 nozzles per color. The
system features HP Vivera pigment inks in
five colors and three blacks. These inks
deliver an exceptionally broad color gamut
for photographic and graphics art
applications, superb neutral tones, and deep
blacks on matte, glossy, semi-gloss, and fine
art papers.
The product’s built-in densitometer automatically
calibrates printer color with a factory calibrated
sensor. The 4-color LED sensor measures color
density and automatically adjusts the printer. You
can easily calibrate the printer via the front panel
or using the print driver software. This feature
allows you to confidently create prints that
accurately reflect your monitor and your vision.
Create exquisite exhibition prints, portfolios,
and digital albums.
