HP PageWide wide-format – HP XL Portfolio – HP Webinar Presentation

In a previous post the other day, I mentioned that I was invited to attend the live production of the webinar presentation HP gave to introduce everyone to its HP PageWide XL systems portfolio.  The webinar was extremely interesting, chock full of information about the portfolio, about the upcoming launch, and about the significant resources HP is committing to the launch of the XL line.

For those of you who’ve not seen the webinar presentation, I asked a representative from PorterNovelli,  the PR firm supporting HP, for links to the webinar materials.  Here they are:

The link immediately below will take you to the page where you can access the webinar presentationabout HP PageWide wide-format - conducted by HP’s Ramon Pastor on April 9th.  When you access the first page, click on “watch now”, it will then ask you for your e-mail address, and, after you enter your e-mail address, the webinar will begin playing.  The webinar presentation was quite interesting!

The link immediately below will take you to a pdf file I’ve saved in by Google Drive library.  This pdf file contains the slides/pages that were presented during the webinar – about the HP PageWide wide-format line of XL systems - mentioned above.  Incredibly interesting stuff!:
