Ultimate Dinosaurs Exhibition at Royal Ontario Museum Brought to Life by HP PrinterJuly 19, 2012
Beyond Digital Imaging considered several key factors to determine the best approach for creating the exhibit graphics:
- Limited timeline to print and install the graphics
- Huge file sizes (up to 10 gigabytes for a wall 16 feet high by 130 feet long)
- Strong emphasis on using a wide color spectrum
- Preference for an environmentally sustainable print medium
“Choosing the right materials is essential for any job we consider,” said Larry Chan, owner, Beyond Digital Imaging. “When considering the needs of this busy and high-impact exhibit, we knew HP’s latex print technology was the best choice for three main reasons: quality, durability and environmental sustainability. We’d like to see latex specified in request for proposals; it’s the future of interior commercial design.”
HP Latex Inks are water-based, do not require special handling and are designed to reduce the impact of printing on the environment. They are ideal for wide and super-wide applications such as signage used in event spaces, and indoor and outdoor applications.
