BARCELONA, Spain, November 24, 2010 - New HP ePrint & Share and HP Designjet T2300 eMultifunction Printer
(eMFP) solution allows design teams to easily access, share and print
large-format project files online anytime, anywhere.*

The announcement means that design professionals in the architecture,

collaboration and reduce review cycles using the industry's first web-ready
large-format printing (

HP has also introduced new HP Graphics Solutions Partner Program
offerings that come bundled with the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP to help simplify
and improve the technical design process.

"In September, HP announced a breakthrough in the way design
professionals can collaborate and share information through its ePrint &
Share platform and the new HP Designjet T2300 eMFP," said Santiago Morera,
vice president and general manager, HP Designjet Large-Format Solutions.
"Today, HP is making this innovative solution available to allow technical
design professionals to reduce review cycles and unleash their creativity."

The HP ePrint & Share (www.hp.com/large/DesignjetT2300/index.html)
platform revolutionizes the way design professionals manage project
workflows. HP ePrint & Share allows architects, engineers and construction
professionals to directly scan project files to the cloud, quickly print and
access plans from the road, share designs with remote project teams* and
seamlessly collaborate with design partners around the world.

HP ePrint & Share is available for all HP Designjet customers and will be
accessible from the touchscreen of the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP**. Designed to
match today's collaborative and mobile work styles, the large-format printer
allows technical design professionals to easily scan and
upload documents to the web and to print drawings wherever needed.*

HP and Autodesk, a leader in 3-D design software, are providing a
completely integrated workflow solution that helps design professionals
improve efficiency, collaboration and productivity on every project, from
start to finish.

Autodesk software solutions bundled with every HP Designjet T2300 eMFP
purchase include:

    - A new HP ePrint & Share plug-in, which allows customers to simplify
      their printing directly from AutoCAD, industry-leading software that
      offers powerful tools for exploring design concepts and accelerating

    - AutoCAD Raster Design,*** which enables the full scanning and
      vectorization of sketches, printed plans or blueprints, is one of the
      leading raster applications for design professionals who need to use or
      reuse scanned paper drawings to manage, convert, analyze and edit those
      images in AutoCAD software and applications based on AutoCAD.

"With the new HP Designjet T2300 eMFP, architects and designers can scan
existing drawings and blueprints, rasterize and vectorize them through
AutoCAD Raster Design, and then bring them into AutoCAD for editing," said
Amy Buszel, senior director, AutoCAD Products, Autodesk. "Beginning a project
with a CAD file instead of manually creating a design in AutoCAD based on
paper files is a much more efficient process."

Also bundled with each HP Designjet T2300 eMFP is a 30-day trial version
of Softcover International's Scan2CAD software. Customers who have purchased
an HP Designjet T2300 eMFP will also be entitled to a significant discount on
Scan2CAD software, version 8.

Notes to editors:

* Internet connection required.

** Upgradeable functionality planned to be available in 2011. May require
an internet connection to the printer. Feature works with any internet and
email capable device.

*** Software delivered as a free 30-day trial and requires the 2011
release of AutoCAD software or an AutoCAD-based product.
