Press Release: HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One printer

HP today announced the launch of the HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One with remarkably increased photo printing speeds. Featuring breakthrough ink printing technology and six individual HP 363 Ink Cartridges with HP Vivera Inks, the new HP 3210 All-in-one is the perfect solution for users who need to quickly print, or copy large quantities of high quality photos or documents. The HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One boast a newly designed printing system, which delivers print speeds of up to 14 seconds per photo up to 32 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white and up to 31 ppm in colour.

Unique recirculation ink technology
These breakthrough speeds are generated by a newly designed wider printhead with 3,900 nozzles that deliver up to 140 million drops of ink per second, more than ever before. The HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One features unique recirculation ink technology which minimises the need for priming - and therefore any associated wastage. Consisting of HP’s proprietary in-printer pump, air vent, ink reservoir and ink sensor, this system ensures all available ink is used for printing and copying rather than for the maintenance usually required by alternative individual ink systems.

HP 3310 printer - Outstanding quality
In addition to speed and efficiency, the HP 3210 all-in-one printer also deliver outstanding quality. The six HP 363 Individual Ink Cartridges contain newly designed dye-based HP Vivera Inks, offering excellent print quality. Thanks to this new ink platform, users can quickly print or copy a variety of documents from black and white text, to six ink colour photos, without having to interchange cartridges. For those users wanting to print or copy a large number of documents, a higher volume dye-based black ink cartridge is also available, the HP 363 Large Black Ink Cartridge. The scanning quality of the all-in-one is equally impressive. With room for multiple photos on the scanner glass, users can scan photos at up to 4800 x 4800 dpi resolution. Those users wanting to store, print or share old images, can place up to four slides or six negatives in the built-in transparent materials adapter (TMA).

Print images from your PictBridge enabled digital camera
Those restricted by time, can also print images either directly from their PictBridg-enabled digital camera or from memory cards. Via the optional HP Bluetooth Wireless Printer Adaptor, users can also print photos from mobile phones, PDAs or other Bluetooth-enabled products - all without a PC. Additionally, users can easily copy and save photos from a memory card to a USB stick by simply connecting it to the dedicated port at the front of the device.

HP Real Life technology
With a number of HP’s Real Life technologies, it’s simple for users to enhance the quality of their favourite photos. Photography enthusiasts can achieve visibly better results with the Automatic Red-Eye Removal function, which allows users to perfect any unnatural blemishes in their images. HP’s Adaptive Lighting technology gives users the option to adjust the brightness of even the most poorly lit images, bringing clarity to otherwise dull and lifeless photos.

HP 3310 All-in-One - Preview, edit and print
With the HP Photosmart 3210 printer, users can also preview, edit and print photos without a PC using the model’s large colour displays and on-board controls. Creative users can also watch their digital videos on the 6.4 cm colour display screen of the HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One.

With built-in networking, the HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One is ideal for the home office environment. Multiple users can complete a variety of tasks including scanning a job as well as sending something to print at the same time - avoiding the need to queue. For complete ease, the new HP Photo Paper is specifically designed to work with the new HP all-in-one. HP Auto Sense technology reads the barcode on the paper’s reverse side and automatically selects the required paper setting, without the need for any user intervention. This paper is available in different sizes including 10 x 15 cm and A4. For enhanced creativity and control, users can print with or without borders in any customised size up to large panorama (215 x 610 mm).

HP Smart Printing technology
HP’s Smart Printing technology is designed to make printing even easier. Programmed to send an on-screen alert when the printer’s ink reservoir is low, users will never run out of ink in the middle of a print job. When shopping in-store or online, the HP 363 Ink Cartridges are easy to identify, as they all feature the same product number, supported by easily identifiable colour and symbol labeling and are packaged in clear plastic. The HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One is available for purchase from October 3 at a recommended street price of ?299.
