HP has announced the expansion of its Z portfolio of professional workstation and display products, including the world’s first workstation Ultrabook—the HP ZBook 14(1)—and the industry’s first line of workstations to offer Intel’s Thunderbolt technology for high-speed data transfer.(2)
The new portfolio includes three new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations and two new HP Z Displays.
The HP Z family of products is engineered to meet the needs of the world’s most demanding customers, where mission-critical operations require the best performance and reliability.
The first workstations to incorporate Thunderbolt, select HP Z Mobile and Desktop Workstations now can take advantage of high-speed data transmission between Z Workstations, displays and peripherals, providing the industry’s fastest, most versatile I/O connection.
Ideal for professionals in engineering, CAD, architecture, design, animation, film, education, government and healthcare, the HP Z portfolio of products has been engineered, tested and certified for professional applications.
“Professional customers rely on trusted partners to provide technology solutions that are tested and certified for the mission-critical applications they run,” said Serena Yong, general manager, Printing and Personal Systems, HP Singapore and Malaysia. “The HP Z subbrand has become a hallmark for professional products engineered to the highest standards—the expansion of the Z portfolio demonstrates HP’s commitment to the professional market that many other vendors have abandoned.”
HP reinvents the mobile workstation
With the introduction of the HP ZBook portfolio, HP has reinvented the mobile workstation and infused it with the HP Z DNA that customers around the world have come to recognize. The new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations now feature a new thinner and lighter industrial design. The HP ZBook family includes the world’s first workstation Ultrabook—the HP ZBook 14—as well as the HP ZBook 17.
Designed for workstation-class professionals that demand mobility, the new HP ZBook Mobile Workstations feature 4th Generation Intel® Haswell dual- and quad-core processor options(4) and next-generation graphics technologies from NVIDIA and AMD, including the newly announced Keplar-based professional graphics from NVIDIA. The HP ZBook Mobile Workstations all feature innovative tool-free chassis for easy upgrades and serviceability.
The HP ZBook 14 also comes with the option for a touch-enabled panel, making it a great choice for anyone who likes a hands-on experience. The HP ZBook 17 features a Thunderbolt port, as well as an optional DreamColor Display panel that provides accurate and consistent color from the display to print and the big screen.
HP Z Displays provide excellent image accuracy
Adding to the company’s line of professional displays, the new HP Z27i and Z30i IPS Displays are ideal for designers, content creators and knowledge workers across the enterprise who need outstanding image accuracy, exceptional adjustability and mission- critical reliability optimized for professionals.
The new displays provide excellent coverage of the sRGB color space—the standard color space for the web, and for the majority of engineering, creative and professional applications—with the HP Z27i and Z30i both offering 100 percent coverage.(3) The HP Z30i also covers 100 percent of the Adobe® RGB color space, commonly used in photography and digital prepress workflows.
Built with IPS Gen 2 panels, HP Z Displays deliver a power savings of up to 37 percent compared to HP’s first-generation IPS technology products, yet still deliver the same excellent color accuracy across wide viewing angles as compared with IPS Gen 1. The HP
Z Displays are ENERGY STAR® qualified and EPEAT® Gold registered. Both displays feature an HP four-way adjustable stand that includes the HP QR2 quick release and both are TCO Certified.
