Walk-up Copying Now Available On HP Mopier 240; HP Continues Assault on Copier Market; More Than 150 New Reseller Outlets to Provide Complete HP Network-copier Solutions.

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 6, 1999-- Hewlett-Packard Company today announced that it is continuing its assault on the copier market by adding convenient, walk-up copying capabilities to the HP Mopier 240 network copier. With the addition of platen glass, the HP Mopier 240 network copier will give users the walk-up copying convenience of conventional copiers, as well as the ability to print mopies (multiple original prints) directly from the desktop.

In addition, the HP Mopier 240 and the recently introduced HP Mopier 320 network copiers will be available from more than 150 local and regional reseller outlets.

"HP has made significant strides in the advancement and distribution of its entire HP Mopier line," said Tim Haney, general manager of HP's Mopy/Copy Solutions Division. "These local and regional reseller outlets complement our recently announced global and national distribution agreement with Lanier Worldwide, Inc. Customers will not only be able to enjoy convenient digital-copying options throughout the HP Mopier line, but also find more opportunities to obtain HP Mopiers through this expanded distribution infrastructure."

"As the line between copying and printing continues to blur, customers will need guidance to make this transition smoothly," said Richard Norton, analyst for Saratoga, Calif.-based DocuTrends. "HP Mopier resellers, with their long history of analyzing paper flow around the office, are ideally suited to this task. With the availability of the HP Mopier line, customers can look forward to improved paper flow and more productivity in the office."

The HP Mopier network copiers' combination of walk-up digital copying, reliable network printing and easy integration into office networks will provide a complete network solution for customers who demand efficient and productive ways to make copies from their desktops (mopies), as well as the convenience of walk-up copying.

"The HP Mopier line provides our customers with a flexible alternative to typical digital copiers," said Tim Carney, vice president, Systems Business Machines, Inc. "The combination of HP's printing heritage, quality walk-up copying and network reliability make the HP Mopier line a complete network-copying solution that both facilities managers and IT professionals know they can trust."

All HP Mopier models come equipped with an HP JetDirect 600N network interface card, allowing these devices to be easily connected to the network. HP's Web JetAdmin 5.0 software provides MIS managers with a familiar interface to manage, administer and monitor HP network copiers, as well as HP LaserJet printers and other networked peripherals. In addition, both the HP Mopier 240 and HP Mopier 320 are HP JetSend-enabled for simple device-to-device communication.
