Vivera has been the designation for all HP inks – both dye-based and pigment inks – since around 2004. The pigment inks (introduced in 2006) are polymer encapsulated and contain a particularly dark black, which allows grey shades to be depicted without adding dye-based inks. HP often uses combination cartridges (e.g. type 110) for CMY in dye-based inks. These are supplemented with photo cartridges and grey cartridges.
