"HP Designjet 5500 UV printers are an ideal addition to a photo lab. They provide brilliant, fade-resistant output on a variety of media types, including, canvas, satin and gloss photo papers, art and watercolor papers, and more. And they print at a speed that easily accommodates last minute requests and peak workloads. Efficient ink usage, plus smart supplies with built-in monitoring, keep cost per copy low, and intervention rates low. Probably most vital to a photo lab business, is the reliable, unattended printing capabilities of the printer. HP has applied technology to printing in a way that delivers consistent colors via automatic closed loop color calibration, consistent quality, including dynamic print modes, which compensate for failed or clogged nozzles automatically, and remote job management and tracking via an embedded web server."
