Hewlett-Packard Inc. today announced that it will incorporate 4800 dot per inch technology into future versions of its inkjet printer line. HP explained that the 4800 DPI functionality is increasingly important as consumers demand higher quality output for images they’re printing at home.
HP Personal Printing Organization Vice President and General Manager Larry Lesley promised that this increase in DPI is only the first in a series of new innovations coming from his company this year.
“As the leading inventor in this field, HP recognizes the rapidly changing needs of consumers who want to do more with their printers simply and reliably — and with the best results possible,” said Lesley.
Specifically, the new HP inkjet printers will sport 4800 x 1200 DPI output as an “alternative photo mode” used to output high-res source images on premium photo papers. The technology is specifically tailored to printing source images at resolutions higher than 600 dots per inch.
