The acquisition complements HP's existing product portfolio of large-format printers and HP digital presses. It also provides HP with the benefits of Scitex Vision's proprietary technology for print heads, providing a significant competitive advantage. Other potential areas of synergy between HP and Scitex Vision's business include inkjet technology, services and support, direct and indirect distribution channels and supply chain.

Scitex - Super-wide digital printing
"The purchase of this business from Scitex Vision will further accelerate HP's push into the rapidly growing digital printing market," said Enrique Lores, vice president and general manager, Large Format Business, HP.
