    HP Printers

    HP sent me a 24″ Z9+ printer to test, study, use, etc.  So far I’ve made an unboxing and setup video. They apparently have a casual approach to roll out, since they first made the printer available last May/June of 2018. They’ve had the new Vivid inkset under test at WIR and I’m working with Aardenburg Imaging on testing certain ink/paper combinations. What seems important to me is that HP is not overlooked in the area of fine art printers, particularly as they will likely have another best in class inkset, just as HP’s Vivera was (and still is) over 12+ years.

    Hope you enjoy the video – pardon the shaky camera in some spots, LOL, putting cartridges in and filming at the same time is tricky…

    Well done Mark. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Kevin – as you know, I’ve long been an advocate of the HP Z3200ps printer.  I have 5 of them and now the new Z9+ that HP Barcelona sent me to test and use.

    Seems strange to have a printer that for all intents and purposes does everything the Z3200 does but at 2-1/2 times the speed.

    I’ve been working with HP to encourage them to upgrade the spectrophotometer capabilities in the color center of the Utility so that similar to the Z3200, it could be used to make extended patch target profiles. At this point, I have a 10,455 patch target ICC profile made by Mark McCormick and printed by me for both the Z9+ and the Z3200ps 44″. Makes all the difference in the world.  Finally some real control over printing.  I used to think the Atkinson 1728 was the best.  Now it’s a starting point.

    We’ll see what HP does in the future with the Z9+.  Thinking back to the Z3100 that Michael Reichman began using and made a video about, the Z Series has come a very long way, and still to this day, the Vivera inkset holds best in class ratings.  I believe the Z9+ Vivid inkset and the dual droplet delivery will also come out tops in test results.

    -Mark
