HP, Inc. announced that it is the proud winner of the iF Gold Award for “Best of the Best” in product design.
The HP PageWide XL 8000 was one of just 75 Gold Award winners selected by an expert panel of 58 international judges out of a record-high field of 5,300 submissions this year. The iF Gold award typically receives 5,000 submissions annually, making this year more difficult than ever.
2016 marks the second consecutive year that HP, Inc. has won a prestigious iF Award for their wide format printing technology. In 2015, the HP Designjet T3500 won an iF Award for outstanding product design for marrying industrial design with product functionality in the first year a wide format HP printer was entered in the iF Design Awards.
The HP PageWide XL 8000 was a standout among the judges:
“The design language of the HP Page Wide XL8000 signals its function as a professional tool. Every element clearly visualizes its function, enabling the user to maximize efficiency. Unlike with similar products, key components like the toner cartridges are not hidden away, but designed as a key visual element, thus enabling the user quick access to this often-replaced component.” – The iF Jury
The HP PageWide XL printer portfolio delivers the fastest large-format monochrome and color printing at breakthrough speeds (up to 30 D/A1-size prints per minute), and 60% faster than the fastest LED printer. These features come standard in the HP PageWide XL 4000 and HP PageWide 5000 printers.
