Hewlett-Packard partners with Colour Confidence
• HP selects TypeMaker’s Colour Confidence products to enhance its large format printing offering
• Colour Confidence Repro Pack to be bundled with HP Designjet 120
• Ideal for the creative and design sectors
Birmingham, UK, May 8, 2003, - TypeMaker Ltd., colour management specialists and software developers has announced that it has partnered with Hewlett-Packard. The newly launched HP Designjet 120 Series multi-format printer is the industry’s first multi-format printer for the design professional and has been bundled with a HP version of the Colour Confidence Repro Pack.
The Repro Pack comprises a digital test chart and a hard copy print. Under the correct lighting conditions, comparing the print with the image on screen will confirm the monitor’s colour accuracy. Printing out the test chart on the printer and comparing it to the one supplied will indicate the colour accuracy of your output device.
“This partnership is being used to strengthen the profile of HP in the creative and design sectors,” said Martin Shaw HP Prepress & Graphics Large Format Specialist. “TypeMaker and the Colour Confidence brand have a strong presence in these sectors and the Repro Pack adds huge value to the HP Designjet 120 with users now being able to easily assess the colour integrity of their monitor and printer.”
“We are delighted to be working alongside such a well-respected company as HP,” said Geoffrey Clements, managing director, TypeMaker. “The launch of the Colour Confidence brand has exceeded our highest expectations and to be recognised as the market leader by HP is indicative of its success.”
The Repro Pack is part of a range of easy-to-use and affordable colour management solutions sold under the Colour Confidence brand. The range also includes Colour Confidence Studio, Check Up and Tune and Print profiler. In addition to the Colour Confidence range, TypeMaker is able to offer in-depth colour management consultancy and seminars.
