Thermal Ink-Jet Printer ODP 200

Inkjet printing provides vibrant full colour photo quality discs which are also economical to produce. Our ODP 200 is a high professional working tool for industrial CD/DVD print applications and environments. It is available as a cost-effective stand-alone desktop unit or paired with our CD/DVD Duplication Systems. Through constant R&D the ODP 200 comes with an exhausting system to extract colour mist during the printing process which is an important quality issue using high resolution ink-jet printers.

Features ODP 200

Photo-Realistic Images on CDs and DVDs

The ODP 200 incorporates HP's unique PhotoREt IV color-layering technology and ColorSmart III color optimization technology to create realistic photo images, vivid color output, and extremely sharp text to your published CDs and DVDs. Its professional performance is reflected especially when printing photo images up to 4800 dpi. When printing text or graphics the ODP convinces you with speed. Sharpness also for fonts, eye-popping colours and smooth colour gradients characterize media printed with the ODP 200.

HP printing systems — Designed to save ink and money

Some printer manufacturers claim that systems with tri-colour cartridges waste ink as the whole cartridge needs to be replaced when a particular colour runs out; whereas in individual-cartridge systems, only the ink that has run out needs be replaced.

In truth, efficient ink usage is not about the type of cartridge (individual or tri-colour), but rather about the design and performance of the printing system.

To demonstrate the point, HP commissioned independent research. The research shows that tested against comparable HP tri-colour-cartridge printers, competing-brand printers with individual ink cartridges used twice as much ink to print the same number of pages*! With their efficient design, HP printers print up to twice as many high-quality pages using the same amount of ink as competing printers with individual ink cartridges*. Clearly, printers with individual ink cartridges for each colour are not inherently more efficient than printers with tri-colour cartridges.

Single Ink - Inkjet Printer ODP 500

The ODP 500 is based on the approved Hewlett Packard High-End Office Jet printing technology and is available in-line with the LSK CD/DVD duplicator and printer robotic systems.

With its print speed from fifteen seconds up to a maximum of two minutes per disc, the ODP 500 is the optimal solution for the industrial user who has high print volumes. The four single ink cartridges, which can be replaced individually, are located separately outside the printing area and are connected to the two print heads via a tube system.

The separated technology (off-axis) leads to lower printing costs per disc because each ink is completely used up and because the high-performance print heads have a lifetime of about 90,000 prints. The high filling capacity of the ink cartridges (Black: 69 ml, Cyan, Magenta & Yellow each 28 ml) constitutes another advantage. This ink capacity allows unattended printing for a longer period of time, e.g. overnight.

A resolution of up to 1200x1200 dpi can be selected for black and white prints. Color prints can be printed with a resolution of up to 4800x1200 dpi (optimized). The ODP 500 has a high-speed USB interface and is compatible with both PC and MAC systems.
