Xeikon Announces VariOne

Xeikon America announced 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’s VariOne is a true differentiator and has been developed and designed to add value and benefit brand owners, designers, illustrators, printers, converters and consumers. VariOne can reportedly achieve the highest levels of variable imagery possible today. Demonstrations can be run by appointment and the new VariOne will be commercially available as an option for systems running X-800 version 7.00 or higher.

“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,” said Jeroen Van Bauwel, director product management, Xeikon. “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, personalized image creation can be fully automated within the printing process. The software functionality achieves random selections from zero to millions. This variable data application reportedly offers endless uses and variations.

What sets this innovation apart is the immediacy of the process. VariOne can immediately process, format and print unique creative designs featuring variable patterns with random elements and the widest gamut of color combinations. Unique designs can be created on the fly and in minutes in a variety of unique patterns.

The advantage of VariOne lies in the complete uniqueness of each design, which can be driven by the database or randomly created from bitmap or vector-based images, creating new and unusual designs in millions of shapes, styles and surreal effects. Brand owners will be able to utilize this opportunity in a variety of sectors with different applications for fashion magazines, retail catalogs, tourism marketing, promotional materials for football competitions or film festivals, as well as high-end label and packaging applications.
