6 4-color plus white when printer contains white ink. White ink can be added or removed easily through an automated process. To use white ink functionality, the optional HP FB500 White Ink Upgrade Kit is required.

7 Image permanence estimate by HP Image Permanence Lab. Display permanence tested August 2010 according to SAE J2527 using HP FB250 and FB251 Scitex Inks on a range of rigid media with up to 4 years display permanence achieved using color inks on HP Permanent Gloss Adhesive Vinyl; in a vertical display orientation in simulated nominal outdoor display conditions for select high and low climates, including exposure to direct sunlight and water; performance varies based on the color/white ink overlay combination; in addition performance may vary as environmental conditions change. For the other commercially-available media tested: actual results may vary, this information is provided for reference purposes only. For more information, see http://www.hp.com/go/supplies/printpermanence.

8 Use of white ink requires a separate purchase of the HP Scitex FB500 White Ink Upgrade Kit.

9 HP Scitex FB500 Extension Tables are required for long materials.

10 The onboard camera detects misfiring nozzles. The printer then uses algorithms to compensate by substituting in working ones, in order to maintain quality without reducing speed. Not all misfiring nozzles can be compensated.
