The HP PageWide XL 8000 has won the prestigious 2016 iF Gold ‘Best of Best’ Design Award with the official jury statement applauding the industrial design of the large format printer. The HP PageWide XL 8000 is one among only 75 iF Gold winners this year out of a record 5,300 submissions, with the win also marking the second iF Design Award for HP and its large-format printing technology. The HP DesignJet T3500 printer was recognised for outstanding product design at the 2015 iF Design Awards.
The 2016 iF Gold ‘Best of Best’ Design Award entries were evaluated by a jury of 58 high-profile international experts, with the official jury statement noting that every key element of the HP PageWide XL 8000 printer clearly visualises its function and thus enables users to maximise efficiency. For instance, important components such as ink cartridges are designed as a key visual element, ensuring quick access.
The same product features are incorporated across the commercially available HP PageWide XL printer portfolio, including the HP PageWide XL 4000, 4500 and 8000 printers, delivering the fastest large-format production printing available in colour and black-and-white.
Additionally, the award-winning flagship HP PageWide XL 8000 printer offers up to 50 percent savings in total production costs, bringing high-end production printing at revolutionary speeds and great economy.
In the market since April 2015, the HP PageWide XL large format printing portfolio enables reprographic houses, print service providers, enterprise central reprographic departments, and print corners to produce computer-aided design drawings, opening up new business opportunities with geographic information system maps, point-of-sale applications and posters.
