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. "Wide-format signage is one of the fastest growing opportunities in the market. Currently, 17 percent of printing in this area is done digitally and we expect that to double within the next five years.

Substantial benefits to the customers

Our technology will reach a broader audience as it becomes available more widely. And employees will enjoy professional opportunities as the business grows within a leading global organization." The transaction is subject to certain closing conditions and is expected to be completed within approximately 90 days. Following completion, the business acquired from Scitex Vision will be fully integrated into HP's Imaging and Printing Group.
