HP has installed the first HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press at SUVI Color Spot, one of the best in the photo printing industry. SUVI Color Sport, an early adopter of technology, has installed the device at its plant in Changanacherry, Kerala.

Introduced this year at Consumer Electronic Imaging Fair (CEIF) in New Delhi, the HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press helps in increasing productivity by offering a new level of quality for Indigo LEP-based digital photo production. Additionally, the device also uses the new HP Indigo HDFM screening technology for smoother, moiré-free prints with increased detailing.

A Appadurai, country manager, Indigo and PageWide Web Press, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc. India, said, “The focus of offering photo printing solutions revolves around smooth and supreme photo printing quality. HP offers advanced printing solutions which have enabled our customers and photographers to clock in good growth within a short span of time. Our journey with SUVI Color Spot started 7 years ago with the installation of HP Indigo 5500 and we have been since then associated with them through various installations; the latest one being the HP Indigo 12000 HD digital press. With this latest installation, we look forward to having a continued association and help them raise the photo print quality benchmark for their customers.”

Commenting on the installation, Wilson of SUVI Color Spot said, “The innovations in the photo printing segment at HP were the key considerations when we bought the HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press. Our long association with the company has enabled us to achieve a double-digit growth over the years, setting a new benchmark for our business in Kerala. We look forward to innovate our products for our customers using the state-of-the-art technology at offer with the new HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press.”

HP Indigo 12000 HD is a digital press for premium sheetfed photo quality. It doubles image resolution for sharper, smoother, finer print, enabling print service providers to surpass offset quality and open new digital possibilities in high-end wedding albums, photo books, holiday cards and calendars.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
