HP Delivers Smart Photo Printing at Home

New HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One for professional-quality photo printing, scanning and copying

TENERIFE, June 27, 2005  HP today announced the launch of the HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One Printer, Scanner and Copier. With fast output speeds and networking capabilities, users can print, copy and share high quality photos with friends and family at the touch of a button.

With built-in Ethernet connection this compact all-in-one is ideal for those who want a device that can be used by several people. A number of PCs or laptops can be easily added to the all-in-ones network, enabling users to access the device from a number of rooms in the home.

Users can preview, select, edit and print their photos directly from a digital camera without having to connect to a computer, using either the built-in memory card slots or by connecting a PictBridge-enabled digital camera to the All-in-One via the dedicated port. By using the memory card slots on this All-in-One, users can preview images on the 6.4 cm colour LCD screen and edit photos from the device itself, without using a computer. 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. The device also features a number of convenient one-touch buttons making it easier to enlarge, zoom and fit images to the size of the page.

Users with a vast collection of ageing photographs can scan, restore and archive their favourite images for future posterity. Once uploaded to the all-in-one, images can be shared or stored in a number of ways. Whether it be through the built in Ethernet connection, or by printing borderless photos up to a large panorama size of 215 x 610 mm, users are able to exhibit their best images with ease.

Meeting the demands of multiple users, the HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One has been designed for versatility, from copying school projects and homework to scanning books and magazines. With a scanning resolution of up to 2400 x 4800-dpi resolution and 48-bit colour, crisp, sharp digital reproductions are simple to achieve.

Available with the HP 343 Tri-Colour Inkjet Print Cartridge, this all-in-one prints vivid, rich colour documents and images with brightness and depth. Great quality photos can be printed quickly and simply, at speeds of up to 27 seconds per image. With the new HP 337 Black Inkjet Print Cartridge, its possible to print or copy documents at speeds of up to 30 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to 24 ppm in colour. Additionally, users can purchase the optional higher volume HP 339 Black Inkjet Print Cartridge which is ideal for those who wish to print high volumes of text documents and enjoy the benefits of photo printing.

Users can temporarily remove the black inkjet print cartridge and replace it with the optional HP 348 Photo Inkjet Print Cartridge for even richer colour and virtually grain-free 6-ink printing. Alternatively, the optional HP 100 Grey Photo Inkjet Print Cartridge can be used for professional-quality black and white printing. These cartridges contain HP Vivera Inks, which when used with HP Premium Plus Photo Paper, can create photos that will resist fading for generations1. Available in a range of sizes including 10 x 15 cm, 13 x 18 cm and A4, HP Premium Plus Photo Papers are available in a high-gloss or satin-matt finish.

With a number of HPs Real Life Technologies, its 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. HPs 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 Image Zone software gives users the capability to manipulate and enhance the quality of their images using a PC. Additionally, with HP Instant Share users can send their photos to family and friends via e-mail without having to attach large files.

With this all-in-one device, users can quickly and easily achieve bluetooth printing. Images from mobile phones and PDAs can be printed with relative ease with the purchase of an optional HP Bluetooth Wireless Printer Adaptor bt300 or bt450. Users can connect this all-in-one to any Bluetooth-enabled product using this accessory.

The HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One is available for purchase from October 3 at a recommended street price of 199 (actual price may vary).
