Give workgroups
the workflow
features they
Accelerate business workflows with robust scanning features,
and easily connect users throughout your office. Share
documents without delay, using flexible send-to options. Easily
create searchable and editable files with built-in OCR
capabilities. Use HP Quick Sets to create one-touch, automated
Scan on both sides with certainty
With the 200-sheet, extended life automatic document feeder (ADF)—a feature that boasts a
robust recommended monthly scan volume of 26,750 to 44,500 pages—scanning with the
HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z is made quick, simple, and professional, even in the
most demanding environments. Handle the workload of your busy work team and maintain optimal
scanning quality with the HP ADF Roller Replacement Kit (100,000 page yield).
Empower everyone to achieve great results in less time. With single-pass, two-sided
black-and-white scanning speeds of 85 images per minute (ipm) and color speeds of 63 ipm, large
duplex scanning projects are done in a flash. Automatic blank page suppression technology helps
reduce file size and create clean digital files.
Help every workgroup capture data with confidence. HP EveryPage allows employees to scan
without worry and detect potential errors or missed pages on the spot—even when the weight,
size, or condition of pages varies. Using ultrasonic technology, HP EveryPage helps detect
double-feeds and avoid missed pages in scanned files, so errors are less likely to occur.
Pristine scans
For each document scanned, the ADF can automatically deskew sheets that are not inserted quite
straight and determine the best output format and exposure for the data content. Automatic color
detection, which is user-selectable, classifies an input original as either color or non-color. And with
edge erase, you can eliminate paper punch holes, staples, and black overscan lines by specifying a
distance from each of the four paper edges to be pushed to white.
Advanced automatic-imaging features include auto-orientation which adjusts each page of an
individual job to be correct-side up, eliminating the need to ensure that each single-sided page in a
job is placed face-up and top-up in the ADF. Auto-page-crop automatically sets the scan to the
paper edges, and auto-tone sets contrast, brightness, and background removal for each page.
Expand scanning possibilities
The 11.7 by 17 inch (297 by 432 mm) flatbed scanner lets you easily copy and scan non-standard
and bound material up to ledger/A3 size. The ADF can handle long pages, up to 34 inches
(863 millimeters). And color scanning comes standard on all HP MFPs. Preserve the appeal of
full-color documents and photos. Scan in 24-bit color—ideal for sharing and archiving high-quality
digital versions of your originals. With full-color scanning, scanned files are easier to read. Your
black-and-white copies will look better as well, because any colored areas will show up as grayscale
shading. With monochrome scanners, these shaded areas tend to just disappear.
Product guide | HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z
Transform text in seconds
Let your MFP do the typing. Simplify editing for smaller jobs—and free up more time for
high-priority tasks—using built-in optical character recognition. 15 For occasional use, built-in OCR
technology allows you to convert scanned images to common file types with editable and
searchable text. File types include searchable PDF, PDF/A, High-compression PDF, HTML, RTF
(Microsoft Word compatible) OCR CSV, Unicode text, and TXT. OCR capabilities also enhance the
indexing and retrieval of documents. (For more advanced OCR capabilities, see the section "Optional
HP Digital Sending Software” on page 9.)
Break through the paper barrier
Easily integrate paper documents into the digital workflow—send scanned documents directly to
Microsoft SharePoint folders, email, fax, network folder, or HP Flow CM with no need for
middleware. Built-in LDAP addressing simplifies email distribution, while optional HP Digital Sending
Software enables advanced document capture and routing. 16
One-touch automated workflows
The MFPs’ digital sending capability lets users route documents to a variety of destinations like
HP Flow CM, email recipients, network folders, or LAN fax addresses. Some users, however, can
become quickly overwhelmed with the number of possibilities. They might choose the wrong
network folder, forget an email address, or pick the wrong file format for the scan, and the
workflow breaks down before it has even begun.
HP Quick Sets let you launch document workflows and get it right every time—at the touch of a
button. HP Quick Sets help by automating all of the steps of a complicated workflow, all on a large,
full-color touchscreen that is a joy to use. Users can find what they need right away, without
standing at the device control panel searching for the appropriate settings.
In addition to scan destinations, you can preset other scan settings. These can include output file
types such as PDF, JPEG, TIFF, MTIFF, XPS, and PDF/A formats. The flow MFP M880z also offers
TEXT (OCR), Unicode TEXT (OCR), RTF (OCR), Searchable PDF (OCR), Searchable PDF/A (OCR), HTML
(OCR), and CSV (OCR). You can also specify security settings, such as encrypted PDFs to be delivered
through encrypted and signed emails. Quick Set buttons can be easily created, labeled, and placed
on the control panel home screen, so that you can quickly find the functions you need (some
examples are shown in the graphic above).
Product guide | HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z
Quick Sets help IT by enabling them to promote or block access to certain device features. Calls to
the helpdesk can be reduced when users have everything they need on the home screen and are
restricted from accessing settings they shouldn’t tamper with.
Easy digital sending setup
Set-up wizards help you quickly and easily configure your HP MFP’s digital sending features.
The Send-to-Email Default Setup Wizard helps you link your MFP to your email server, then set
up default email and scan settings. The Send-to-Email Quick Set Wizard makes it easy to manage
often-used Send-to-Email favorites, as well as set up default scan settings. Scanning to email
can be a great time-saver when communicating with customers, vendors, or coworkers.
The Save-to-Folder Quick Set Wizard helps you create destination folders on your computer
using Quick Sets. It walks you through configuring the default scan settings that will be applied
when scanning to each folder. Now you can start digitally filing your documents for easy storage
and retrieval.
Optional HP Digital Sending Software
The MFP supports HP Digital Sending Software (DSS)16 as well as a variety of enterprise document
management systems, including HP Embedded Capture (see below for more information).
HP Digital Sending Software enhances digital sending across HP LaserJet MFPs to provide a
common administrative utility and end-user interface across multiple devices and device types. This
optional software runs as a service on a network server and allows multiple devices to send jobs
through the server. It is not necessary to install any software or drivers on individual computers.
While the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z includes robust digital sending features out
of the box, HP DSS enables the following additional sending features:
Optical character recognition (OCR) allows you to convert scanned images to common file types
with editable and searchable text. File types include searchable PDF, PDF/A, High-compression
PDF, HTML, XML, RTF (Microsoft Word compatible), XPS, and TXT. OCR capabilities also enhance
the indexing and retrieval of documents. (These OCR capabilities are built-in, for occasional use,
to the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z.15)

Activate information with optional HP Embedded Capture
The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z supports HP Embedded Capture, a solution that
makes it easier to digitize documents and share them publicly, while extending a device’s
digital-sending capabilities. As a basic scan-and-send solution, the optional HP Embedded Capture
improves everyday office efficiency without the need for a dedicated server. Predefine scan
processes and trigger them directly at the device, or implement on-demand scanning from
common applications through a TWAIN driver or a provided application programming interface (API).
It’s easier than ever for branch offices with low scan volumes to gain efficiencies, reduce costs, and
improve productivity with this basic capture solution. On top of that, you can better protect
information by giving only authorized users access to routing destinations and documents. Because
you can capture document information at the device and add it to your business processes,
HP Embedded Capture can spark new ways to activate information.

global menu where you can search for specific topics. For screens that contain settings for
individual jobs, the Help button opens to a topic that explains the options for that screen.
• Clear instructions and illustrations, including animations for tasks such as jam recovery.
Easy-to-read status messages in one location.
Easy-access USB
The easy-access USB near the control panel lets you quickly complete your print job from a flash
drive. A variety of files are supported, including PDF, PS, and print ready files
(.prn, .pcl, .cht).
Make it easy to be efficient
Make scanned documents easier to organize and find by adding information to files and context to

Show your company’s true colors
This is color printing like it should be: vibrant, consistent, and affordable. Give your enterprise the
ability to produce attractive, professional quality reports and brochures, time after time.
Produce exceptional results with HP Image REt
With HP ImageREt 4800, the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z delivers brilliant results.
The system’s foundation is comprised of key color laser technologies, including HP ColorSphere
toner, image enhancements, HP Smart printing technology, and high-resolution imaging.
Designed together with Original HP print cartridges and HP papers, HP ImageREt produces
exceptional output for your printed documents.
Get consistent quality with HP EasyColor
HP EasyColor provides outstanding color and black-and-white output—combining multiple
technology enhancements into one easy-to-use feature. Included with the HP Universal Print Driver,
this intelligent technology detects document content and automatically adjusts color rendering to
optimize photo quality and compress rasterized images for faster printing.8
HP EasyColor also recognizes images in a document. It uses the generating application’s image file
pass-through to emulate what you see on the screen, and determines the necessary adjustments
for optimal output quality. The results are improved color consistency and sharper, more
natural-looking photos.
Because image file sizes are optimized before being sent to the printer, image-heavy documents—
such as PowerPoint presentations—may print more quickly with HP EasyColor. And with smaller
spool file sizes, network traffic is reduced. Best of all, you don’t need to make a series of complex
manual adjustments. HP EasyColor is automatically enabled, so you’ll effortlessly experience better
color printing.
Achieve brilliant color every time you print
Let your prints shine with uniform gloss and a dynamic color range. Improved melting and fusing
technologies work in sync with HP ColorSphere toner to enable exceptional toner release and flow.
Producing a wide range of very specific colors and smooth color transitions requires extreme
precision throughout the printing process. HP’s color toner enables a finer range of colors because
each toner particle conforms to an extremely consistent size and shape. This consistency allows
toner particles to be placed on the page with the precision needed to produce a wide range of colors
with the most subtle differences of shade.
HP ColorSphere toner is also designed to improve printing time. Its toner particles are chemically
grown around an optimally sized wax core that is designed to work with the fuser’s Instant-on
Technology for fast image processing with optimum results.
Product guide | HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z
Match colors precisely with a PANTONE© calibrated printer
The process of matching device output color to your computer screen is quite complex, because
printing devices and computer monitors use different methods of producing color. Monitors display
colors by light pixels using an RGB (red, green, blue) color process, while printing devices produce
colors by blending pigments using a CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) system.
In addition, several factors can affect the difference between displayed and printed color: paper
type, printing technology (ink or laser, for example), print drivers, monitors, etc.
Fortunately, HP has partnered with PANTONE© to make this process easier for the average user.
PANTONE© is the world-renowned authority on color and the process of color matching. Because
the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z is a PANTONE© Calibrated MFP, you can rely on it
to help you produce consistent and reliable results, reduce time from pre-press to final output, and
reduce waste with fewer mistakes.
Deliver reliable, consistently outstanding results
HP Original LaserJet print cartridges are a crucial component of the printing system. 22 Four
standard capacity cartridges—three color and one black—are shipped pre-installed with the MFP,
saving time and adding value.
• HP Smart printing technology is activated every time you install an Original HP print cartridge.
The HP print cartridge, MFP, and software are designed to work together to enable easy,
high-quality laser printing, and allow you to monitor your current supplies, order new supplies
online, and print successfully every time.
• Original HP LaserJet black print cartridges have a standard yield of 29,500 pages and color
cartridges have a standard yield of 32,000 pages, which means less intervention for you. 23
• Clearly labeled parts, easy-to-understand instructions, and cartridge status information from the
control panel or HP device management tools make supplies management and troubleshooting
easy for all users.

To use wireless direct printing, simply connect your mobile device to your MFP in the same way you
would discover and connect to any public wireless network. With touch-to-print, you can walk up
and print from your NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet with just a touch. NFC, or near field
communication, automatically discovers the printer for you, eliminating the guesswork and creating
a one-to-one connection using wireless technology.
HP has been working closely with leading manufacturers of mobile devices to integrate printing into
popular operating systems. In fact, HP currently offers the broadest support for embedded print
functionality—across Apple® iOS (AirPrintTM), Samsung Android, and Windows® 8, which means in
most cases you won’t have to download an app. Simply access the print function from the
document you want to print, select your MFP, and hit Print. For mobile devices without built-in print
support, users will first need to download the HP ePrint app or HP ePrint software. 24
You can add wireless direct and touch-to-print across your existing HP devices with either the
HP Jetdirect 2800w, which installs in the hardware integration pocket, or with the HP NFC/Wireless
1200w Mobile Print Accessory, via USB. 25
If you’re looking to deploy mobile printing across an existing multi-vendor fleet and need advanced
security and management options, we offer the optional HP ePrint Enterprise solution. Learn more

Safeguard your device, data, and documents with robust
security features
The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z has a multitude of options when it comes to
helping you secure your environment. You can count on support for a number of solutions, along
with built-in security features such as a HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk and PIN printing
Protect your MFP
As capabilities expand and devices become more integrated into your workflows, device security
becomes increasingly important. The MFP features a number of options to help secure against
undesired access:
Authentication and authorization—Help boost security at the device and help make sure the
right jobs end up in the right hands. Authentication can help your organization manage user
access, prevent unwanted scanning and digital sending, help secure access to management
utilities, and avoid unwanted device configurations. Control access to the MFP, device settings,
and functions, with options like:
- Multiple embedded authentication methods: Print with a positive ID. With authentication
options available from the device, you can configure Windows/Kerberos authentication, LDAP
authentication, and user PIN authentication that integrates with your existing infrastructure.
- Role-based device authentication and authorization with HP FutureSmart: With
HP FutureSmart, you have more control than ever before over device security and permission
settings. IT administrators can decide who can interact with certain device capabilities—
helping to make workflows more secure, control access, and uphold site security policies.
Product guide | HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z
- HP and third-party authentication solutions: With optional solutions like HP Access Control
or HP Smartcard Solution for U.S. Government, you can enable advanced authentication using
proximity cards or smartcards. The hardware integration pocket on the control panel enables
integration of select card readers.4
- Encrypted document authentication with HP FutureSmart Encrypted PDF and HP UPD
Secure Encrypted Print: 26 With these solutions, the user must enter a password (symmetric
key) to encrypt when scanning or printing a document, and the same password to decrypt and
print the document. This authentication protects the document across the entire workflow.
• Physical device protection—Both the device and the embedded HP High-Performance Secure
Hard Disk can be physically safeguarded from theft and tampering using a lock that requires a
physical key for removal (this accessory must be purchased separately). In addition, host USB
ports, network ports, and other physical ports can be disabled to prevent unauthorized use.
Common Criteria Certification (CCC)—CCC is a security certification recognized in 26 countries
worldwide. HP certifies the security functionality of its Enterprise LaserJet MFPs. 27
Protect your data
Your MFP harbors sensitive information—make sure it’s not at risk. HP offers security features at
every stage in the workflow. An HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk helps safeguard sensitive
data sent to your MFP to keep you worry free.
Protect data at rest with the following features:
Storage encryption—Defend your data. The HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disk on the
HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z provides full hardware encryption. (Select U.S.
Government SKUs include a FIPS 140 validated disk.) 28
Secure Erase—The MFP provides built-in capabilities to help securely overwrite data stored on it,
allowing sensitive data to be safely removed. HP offers multiple mechanisms to erase stored
data, including functionality that conforms to U.S. National Institute of Science and Technology
(NIST) Special Publication 800-88.
Password protection—Stored passwords are encrypted to help provide protection of this
critical information.
Protect data in transit with these features:
• Secure Encrypted Print with HP UPD 5.3.1 or later—For added security, choose end-to-end
Secure Encrypted Print. HP UPD is the first fleet driver 29 to provide true symmetric AES256 print
job encryption and decryption from the client to the page based on a user-defined password
using FIPS 140 validated cryptographic libraries from Microsoft.
• Network protection—Network-transmitted data can be protected with IPsec, which allows you
to encrypt data that travels between the device and digital send destinations (provided you have
configured each network resource to use IPsec). Print jobs can also be encrypted using Internet
Printing Protocol (IPP) over SSL/TLS.
• Document security—Scanned PDFs and emails can be encrypted using built-in FIPS 140
validated cryptographic libraries from Microsoft.
Management safeguards—Device management data that travels over the network between
the device and the HP Embedded Web Server, HP Web Jetadmin, and other management tools
can also be protected using SNMPv3 and SSL/TLS.
Safeguard your physical documents
HP offers several optional solutions to help keep documents from falling into the wrong hands and
help prevent fraud, such as:
• Pull printing—Have documents held and released only to the person who printed them. The
HP Access Control Pull Printing solution helps protect sensitive data by requiring authentication
at the device, and gives users the flexibility of pulling the documents from any device that is
enabled with the solution.
Product guide | HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z
Embed anti-fraud features—This is a valuable tool in sensitive documents like prescriptions,
birth certificates, or transcripts. Anti-fraud features are embedded before they are routed to the
MFP and printed on plain paper by using the optional HP and TROY Secure Document Printing
