Product Specifications

The HP Designjet 5500 series printers turn around ready-to-sell-and-distribute prints at some of the fastest speeds available - without compromising image quality. With HP's intelligent printing solutions, print service providers, GIS professionals, and graphics designers will benefit from a simplified workflow, unattended operation, and flexible options that serve a variety of customers or departments. New production print modes deliver professional image quality at speeds of 100 sq ft/hr output for glossy and 189 sq ft/hr for coated (available with dye ink) media; 569 sq ft/hr printing using maximum speed mode. Superb photo quality for all your large-format printing is delivered using a six-ink, 1200 dpi writing system (1200 by 600 dpi on glossy media) and HP color layering technology that provides a wide color gamut, continuous tones, and smooth color transitions. Automatic closed-loop color calibration guarantees color consistency from the first print to the last.
