    HP Announces Participation in 2008 Political Conventions
    Technology Resources Help Reduce Environmental Impact of Conventions
    today
    announced that it has signed contracts to become the official provider
    of notebooks and digital output solutions for the Democratic National
    Convention in Denver and the official provider of mobility and digital
    output solutions for the Republican National Convention in
    Minneapolis.”The conventions are an important part of the presidential
    election process and HP is pleased to partner with both parties for the
    conventions in 2008, just as we did in 2000 and 2004,” said Gary
    Fazzino, vice president, Government Affairs, HP.Much of the equipment
    that HP will provide to the conventions will allow for increased energy
    efficiency. For example, staffers at the RNC will use the HP Compaq
    dc5700 and dc7700 business desktops, which were the first PCs in the
    industry to meet the latest ENERGY STAR(R) standards, meaning they use
    less energy and will cost less for the conventions to power compared to
    older PCs.In addition, HP will provide a portfolio of printers and
    multifunction devices to support the planning efforts of the
    conventions, helping to print everything from floor plans to posters.
    Specifically, the equipment to be provided includes the HP CM8060 Color
    Multifunction Printer (MFP) with Edgeline Technology and the HP
    Designjet T1100 and Z6100 large-format printers. Workers at the DNCC
    are using the HP Designjet Z6100 large-format printer to produce plans
    for the convention floor layout, staging and other logistical aspects
    of the event.

    The CM8060 Color MFP will enable convention staff
    to print materials quickly – up to 71 pages per minute – with
    outstanding print quality and reliability and at a low cost of
    operation. The ENERGY STAR-compliant MFP saves energy by entering the
    lowest power sleep mode 15 minutes after the end of a print job and by
    enabling complete power shutdown while the machine is still plugged
    into a power source.”HP is committed to helping this year’s conventions
    reduce their environmental impact and to engineering products, software
    and services that help individuals and businesses to do the same,” said
    Fazzino.Following the conventions, the equipment that HP is providing
    will be donated to schools and non-profit organizations in the Denver
    and Minneapolis areas.
