New 3D scanning technology available from BT Business Direct

BT Business Direct currently has stocks of HP printers that utilise new 3D TopShot scanning technology, which can help to save time and money for small businesses.

The TopShot technology is available with the HP LaserJet Pro 200 Colour MFP M275 printer and can allow users to instantly capture a high-quality image of a 3D object. This means that you will no longer need to use a camera or computer when taking such pictures, and you won’t even need to invest in photographic backgrounds or lighting to get the job done properly.

The pictures appear in vivid colour thanks to the HP LaserJet Pro’s three angle LED flashlighting, and they will be available for instant uploading to your website or to print out. The camera automatically takes a total of six images, with different ambient lighting, flash strengths, and even from different angles. The photographs come in high resolution that you can then adjust to suit your needs, and the printer can also be used to copy, scan or print documents.

Not only this though, but the HP LaserJet Pro 200 also comes with a wide range of cloud based business apps that will allow you to carry out a number of jobs at incredibly fast speeds. For instance, the printer’s ePrint app can be used to print off postage labels, and you will be able to synchronise your smartphone or any other wireless device with the printer in order to benefit from wireless direct printing. This means that you can print documents straight off your phone and can do so from the office or when out and about.

Nadine Roache, Category Manager of BT Business Direct said: “We are very impressed with the new HP LaserJet Pro 200 printer and have already seen how popular it is with small businesses. This printer can honestly save you a huge amount of time and money, as it can do so many jobs in one. We would definitely recommend it.”

Bigger Cartridges Mean Bigger Savings – So Stock Up On HP’s Extra-Large Range For Officejet Printers At BT Business Direct

Black, cyan, yellow – whatever colour printer ink you need, make sure your cartridges are all ‘green’ by choosing from Hewlett-Packard’s XL range, available now from BT Business Direct.

These super-size capacity cartridges are kind on the environment and your wallet.

Not only can they print three times as many black-and-white pages in supreme laser quality as a standard HP Officejet ink cartridge, two-thirds of their content is made from recycled plastic. So not only does your cartridge save while you’re using it, it goes on saving once you’ve recycled it, which is an easy and convenient process through HP Planet Partners.

Throughout the life of your HP XL Officejet ink cartridge, you’ll get high-quality, fade-resistant prints, time after time, and you’ll save up to 50 per cent on the cost of each page.

And, to enhance their cost-cutting credentials, the cartridges are even designed to squeeze out the very last drop of ink, thanks to a user-friendly system which ensures that a crucial print job can be finished, even when one of the colours is close to running out.

In addition to these money-saving features, the improved pigment ink technology gives you sharper, more durable text and images, which even stand up better to being run over with a highlighter pen. “Cutting costs without cutting corners is a major objective of many businesses in these tough times”, said Nadine Roache, Print Category Manager of BTBusinessDirect.com. “The HP XL Officejet cartridge range saves you money on one of those smaller, but regular, business expenses, yet doesn’t do so at the expense of a quality result.”

“Getting twice as many pages from a single ink cartridge has to be a real bonus, as not only does it save on your ink costs, it also means only half the bother of having to change them – and that’s got to be a big plus for any business, no matter what the size,” she added.

Visit businessdirect.bt.com today, and start cutting the cost of your ink cartridges. And find out too, how we can help you with big savings on a massive range of home and office technology, including all-in-one desktop PCs and top-quality desktop printers.
