Hewlett-Packard Monday offered a peek into future printing technologies, introducing a new inkjet printer that prints thousands of pages per minute and ink that retains its shine even when exposed to extreme elements.

HP's water-based Latex Ink is specially formulated to embed in a surface and become part of a media print, said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president of HP's graphics and imaging business. HP's Latex Ink can withstand snow and rain and is useful for large-format media used on billboards and outdoor signs.

The company also launched the Inkjet Web Press printer, which can print up to 2,600 A4-sized color pages a minute at a cost of under $0.01 per color page, Nigro said.

I thought it was interesting what is said in the last paragraph of this article.

In 2009, 53 trillion documents will be printed, of which 9 percent will be digital, Nigro said. Creating digital pages such as image files creates new printing opportunities, such as ordering bound specialty photobooks online. That is not possible with an analog press, as setup costs could be high, he said.

I had never thought of the possibility of turning all of our photos into a catalog or magazine type format. That would be really cool. Imagine that as a Christmas gift or an item to place on your coffee table. Because they are durable and replaceable you would not have to fear ruining the pictures. Very Happy
