HP extends Photosmart range with A3 professional printer boasting long print life.

Eight HP 38 Pigment Ink cartridges with the capacity to print 80 or 840 10×8-inch prints are found on the Pro B9180, while waterproof Vivera inks are designed to produce high-quality prints that dry instantly and – according to testing from the Wilheim institute ? last longer then 200 years.

Henry Wilhelm from the Wilhelm Imaging Research comments: ?When displayed framed under glass, prints made with the new printer, inks, and papers are among the longest-lasting prints in the entire 130-year history of colour photography.?

The Photosmart Pro B9180 boasts print speeds of 19 seconds for 10×15-inch prints and A3 prints under 90 seconds. Two-colour print heads and four dual-colour print heads, with 8448 nozzles are found on the Pro B9180, designed to produce accurate colour representation and drop placement.

Alongside the Photoshop compatible HP Pro print plug-in, for precise colour representation the supplied software includes a selection of ICC profiles.

HP has also introduced four A3+ fine-art papers: Aquarella Art, Watercolour, Smooth Fine Art and Artist Matte, that are compatible with the Pro B9180
