The Videojet Crescendo v2 System Controller from Videojet Technologies Inc. is the industry’s first to offer dual-line printing from a single binary array printer for greater flexibility and maximum uptime. With the capabilities afforded by the Windows XP-based Crescendo v2 controller, a single Videojet BX6600 binary array printer can now print on two separate lines simultaneously, enabling complex jobs for the mailing and commercial printing industry to be completed more quickly and decreasing the equipment investment required to support fluctuations in mailing volumes.
“Now printers and direct mail houses can complete multiple jobs with up to 2 inches of print without additional equipment and within shorter lead times,” says Jason Lund, Videojet graphics business unit manager. “Printers can gain a competitive advantage by maximizing their investment in Videojet’s binary array technology and achieve greater throughput to meet their customer’s needs and deadlines.”
The Crescendo v2 controller supports two new bar codes — GS1 DataMatrix and GS1-128 — in addition to the fully configurable bar codes supported by the original Crescendo controller, including the Intelligent Mail Barcode, POSTNET and PLANET Code. In addition to English, the Crescendo v2 controller’s user interface now also supports five other languages: Dutch, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
Videojet BX6600 printers are designed for high-quality printing of addresses, bar codes, maps and promotional messaging on direct mail pieces, magazines, loyalty cards and a wide range of other applications. With the Crescendo v2 controller, a virtually unlimited number of variable graphics are easily incorporated into print jobs, while features such as PDF proofing and Auto Address Block significantly reduce setup time. The image rendering provided by the system controller enables even complex images to be printed at the fastest line speeds. The automatic phasing process maximizes uptime by optimizing print quality without any operator intervention.
