HP Color LaserJet 4500 Series Printers

The HP Color LaserJet 4500 printer is the third in the series of Color
LaserJet printers that started with the HP Color LaserJet printer. It is
a 600 dpi device with 8-bit continuous tone support on each color
channel. This means the printer uses 24 bits to represent each color it
prints.

This printer can be considered as the direct descendent of the
HP Color LaserJet 5 and the HP LaserJet 5 printers, since it
combines the PCL 5 features of both. For example, the Text Parsing
methods are supported as in the LaserJet 5, while such color features
as Palette, Monochrome Print Mode, and Foreground Color
commands are supported in the Color LaserJet and Color LaserJet 5
printers.

The HP Color LaserJet 4500 printer is also very much like a
LaserJet 4000 series printer, with respect to PCL 5. With very few
exceptions, the LaserJet 4500 supports the same PCL 5 and
HP-GL/2 commands and options as the LaserJet 4000 printer. The
differences are listed below.

The HP Color LaserJet 4500N printer is the network-ready version of
the base model (4500) printer. It includes an HP JetDirect card and
32 Mb of additional memory. The HP Color LaserJet 4500DN printer
is network-ready, with an HP JetDirect card, duplexer, 500-sheet
paper tray, and 32 Mb of additional memory.
