Furthermore, at a savings level of 26.3%, there was no noticeable reduction in print quality.
“After extensive investigation into products of this nature on the market, we can comfortably state that in our opinion PretonSaverTM is a unique product which lives up to its claims of cutting supply costs for its customers and is the best fit solution available today”
Malcolm Hancock – Director – bradham360 Ltd.
The independent laboratory test was composed of 3 trials. In each trial 1,500 pages were printed using Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJet Enterprise P3015 and its Universal Print Driver set to its default settings. The first trial is conducted using the HP Universal Print Driver only. In the second trial PretonSaverTM software is added, set at the default savings setting; Text at 35%, Graphics and Images at 20% savings. The final test involves printing 1,500 pages with PretonSaverTM set to a higher level of savings; 70% on text and 50% on graphics and images. Toner usage is measured
by weighing the toner cartridges before and after the predetermined number of pages is printed. The weight difference is attributed to the amount of toner consumed by those prints. These tests were conducted 3 times, using a new cartridge each time. Test results, as established by bradham360 Ltd. and Industry Analysts Inc. determined that savings of up to 70% in toner usage can be achieved when using the PretonSaverTM toner and ink saving software.
Composed of two revolutionary technologies (Pixel OptimizerTM & Elements IdentifierTM) PretonSaverTM products identify wasteful pixels and delete them. The different elements on the page (text, graphics, and images) are attributed a different savings level to maximize the required quality of each element. This sophisticated combination of technologies enables high quality printing of mixed element documents with maximum savings applied per element and not per page as a whole. Management of printing rules allows for even more ways to monitor and prevent excessive and unnecessary printing using quotas, regulations predefined across a network, and advanced printer settings.
GHG emissions caused by manufacturing a single mono toner cartridge have been calculated to approximately 4.8 Kg of CO2. Furthermore, during the complete life cycle of a ton of office paper, the equivalent of 6.3 tons of CO2 will be emitted into the air. The Evergreen PretonSaverTM software helps reduce all that damage and cut down on the printing industry’s carbon footprint.
