University College London (UCL), one of the world’s highest ranking universities, has installed an HP PageWide XL 5000 Multifunction Printer. The new printer has allowed students at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL's global faculty of the built environment, to benefit from radically faster printing speeds for their large format projects.

“Before we had the high-speed printer, students had to wait in front of the printer before they could collect their CAD projects,” says Yusah Hamuth, Faculty head of IT at the University College London. “During the hand-in period in May/June where the print volume typically increases significantly, we could observe the queues in front of the printers getting longer and longer. The need for a high-speed printer was evident.”

Aside from fast printing speeds, the ease of use and accessibility of the PageWide XL 5000 Printer were important factors in the School’s purchase decision. Its architectural students have access to the printer not only when IT staff are present, but during standard opening hours from 8:30 to 22:30, including during weekends. Two media drawers that allow for up to four media rolls, together with two sets of CMYK ink cartridges, allow for uninterrupted printing.

“The best solution is to make the printers available to the students so that they can help themselves. This is why we don’t have to provide any additional staff to oversee the printing process,” says Hamuth. “The dual set of ink cartridges is very convenient. If one cartridge runs out it automatically swaps to the other one.”

The HP PageWide XL 5000 printer provides fast and efficient monochrome and colour prints in a single device at speeds up to 14 D/A1-size prints per minute. HP PageWide Technology consists of more than 200,000 nozzles on a stationary print bar and spans the width of the page, enabling breakthrough printing speeds.
