Fast full color printing

The HC is the only series of full color, sheet fed inkjet printers capable of printing up to 120 ppm. The HC printer simply leaves the competition behind. Faster turnaround times for all your jobs and higher productivity for your staff means a quicker return on your investment.

Low running cost per page

With the HC’s low-cost full color prints, you can now have a positive impact on all your printed documents without negatively impacting your budget! With volume capabilities of up to 500,000 copies per month, the HC delivers rapid payback whether at a data center, a central reproduction department, or as a departmental or networked office printer.

Advanced color management

The ComColor Color Management System was created specifically for the HC to ensure the best quality reproduction of color images. ComColor guarantees exceptional color reproduction while minimizing ink usage, keeping costs low.

Scalable to your needs

The HC printer offers users a choice of print controllers. You decide which one is right for your needs and your budget. Choose a powerful Adobe® PostScript®3TMController that offers advanced functionality and maximum control over the printing process. This controller boasts an Intel®Pentium®4 processor, 160 GB hard disk drive and 1,024 MB of RAM. Features of the PostScript RIP include an archive function, a forms queue, PCL compatibility, and custom print queues. CMYK gamma control for photos and graphics allows you to increase and decrease the level for each color individually. Customers can also add PPML and color profile management capabilities. Or choose a robust GDI controller with a feature set ideal for the everyday office environment. Enjoy professional features such as poster-printing, secure printing, and watermarks while maintaining control over a selection of quality settings all in a user friendly print driver interface.

RISO Console

The Console feature standard with the HC gives administrators the ability to customize the device settings, establish walk-up user accounts, view and download machine usage history, and set network configuration. All users with access to a Web browser can monitor their print jobs, view and recall stored files on the RIP, and view machine details such as supplies remaining, loaded paper stocks, and machine idle or in use.


The HC can be accessorized with capability-enhancing options. These include a scanning system that offers full color scanning at speeds up to 20 ppm. The scanner comes with an R-ADF and large touch panel display for easy operation. The scanner interface offers many of the same robust features as the HC’s printer driver to deliver hard-copy reproduction that is as close to a digital original as possible. The HC finisher brings the convenience of stapling, two or three hole punching, stacking, folding and booklet making right in line with the printing process. Create professionally finished documents quickly and easily with the HC finishing system.

Touch Panel Display

The optional TPD can be added without the scanner to access a host of walk-up features including secure printing, access to stored jobs on the RIP, and viewing job comments.
