Xeikon announces new variable data generation tool, VariOne

Xeikon has launched VariOne, a new variable data generation tool for Xeikon’s X-800 digital front-end.

This integrated software innovation can immediately generate and print unique creative designs, based on an image or on vector graphics, in endless complex patterns.

Xeikon product management director Jeroen Van Bauwel said the VariOne can achieve the highest levels of variable imagery possible today and that the new VariOne will be commercially available as an option for systems running X-800 version 7.00 or higher.

“Print is becoming more customised and valuable. With VariOne, Xeikon has taken a significant leap forward in its research and development and now offers completely new horizons for differentiation,” Van Bauwel said.

“With VariOne it is possible to create thousands of unique and individual clips from a base design. With our new integrated variable data solution built into Xeikon’s digital front-end, the possibilities for producing unique images are limitless on both our dry toner and inkjet presses.

“The Xeikon strategy is to extend the capabilities of its X-800 workflow even further and expand the range of possible applications.”

With Xeikon’s VariOne, personalised image creation can be fully automated within the printing process. The software functionality achieves random selections from zero to millions. This variable data application offers endless uses and endless variations.

Xeikon said VariOne can immediately process, format and print unique creative designs featuring variable patterns with random elements and the widest gamut of colour combinations.

The advantage of VariOne lies in the uniqueness of each design, which can be driven by the database or randomly created from bitmap or vector-based images.

Xeikon said brand owners will be able to utilise this opportunity in a variety of sectors with different applications for fashion magazines, retail catalogues, tourism marketing, promotional materials for football competitions or film festivals, as well as high-end label and packaging applications.

“Xeikon is taking mass customisation to new levels with an explosion of creativity which will add value for everyone in the supply chain in a million ways. Xeikon’s VariOne has taken a complicated prepress process and made it immediately fast and flexible,” Van Bauwel added.
