Hewlett-Packard announced today the asset acquisition of DP-Tek's print-resolution enhancement technologies and patents for an undisclosed sum.
Based in Wichita, Kansas, DP-Tek is known for developing and licensing such digital-interface and print-resolution enhancement technologies as TrueRes, PhotoTone, and RAMSaver. HP is buying TrueRes and PhotoTone, which offer resolution-doubling and edge-smoothing capabilities.
HP and DP-Tek have been working together for more than a year on the development of these technologies, which HP will incorporate to improve image quality in output from LaserJet printers.
Some of DP-Tek's 40 employees, namely developers, will relocate to HP's Boise, Idaho, site this fall; the remaining employees will be offered a severance package.
