At this year’s drupa, HP ranks the top in terms of the exhibition area. According to the hall plan, the all 6,200 square metre exhibiting area in Hall 17 is fully occupied by HP. However at drupa 2012, HP only covered 4,952 square metres in Hall 4.
During the 11-day’s fair, HP has demonstrated various digital printing technologies. The exhibits HP showcased were in full compliance with the trend that drupa showed to the print industry; in addition to the latest solutions for label printing, packaging, large-format and sign printing, HP showcased its state-of-the-art technology for commercial printing. For better assisting customers in production management, HP released PrintOS – the latest cloud operation system, which was also the debut of this system to the world.
“As for us, it is really an important investment – to have all series of products showcased at drupa including Indigo, PageWide and Latex. We released new equipment for packaging that was completely in compliance with the idea that drupa would like to show in this year – digital printing solutions. The demonstration of our solutions and technologies would definitely help printing service providers to re-define their potential!” HP illustrated.
