PrintFactory announces strategic partnership With HP China

October 01, 2018

We are delighted to announce our strategic partnership with Hewlett-Packard China, which will see PrintFactory color management software bundled with HP Latex and HP DesignJet D5800 wide-format printers.

The PrintFactory software allows LFPs to produce the same quality output across multiple devices - saving time and resources while ensuring optimal color reproduction whether jobs are produced hours or weeks apart.

With PrintFactory, print shops can easily create and use a DeviceLink profile, which is a link between the color reference profile and the printer profile to help improve color accuracy across devices. This removes the need for canned profiles, as unique profiles are created for every device so that each produces the same proofing grade color.

The technology also improves color consistency over time through an iterative process of recalibrating to account for color degradation as a result of changes in environmental conditions; different stock and substrates; and wear and tear.

During a demonstration at the HP Latex Shanghai Experience Centre, HP DesignJet D5800 and Latex 375 printers produced a consistent output of vivid, clean color across substrates running on PrintFactory software.

Erik Strik, CEO at PrintFactory commented: “Achieving consistent, high-quality color reproduction across devices and substrates shouldn’t be a dark art. We’re delighted to be working with HP China to bring the future of color management to wide-format print shops across the country.”

Ivan Khoo, Managing Director APAC at PrintFactory, added: “Collaboration is key to success in the wide-format print sector. We work in partnership with original equipment manufacturers to ensure customers have best-in-class technology to maximise their business’ productivity and profitability.”

HP’s Latex series can be used for a variety of applications on both rigid and flexible substrates, including signage, vehicle wraps, event stands, decoration and more. Enabling print shops to operate 24/7, the HP DesignJet D5800 offers quality, affordable prints for a range of applications. PrintFactory is compatible with all HP wide-format printers running on macOS and/or Windows.
