Only time will tell if this becomes the new über-press but I'm excited to see major developments in the industry, with new s-curves in Landa-speak, rather than slight improvements on previous technologies. Technological innovation is a hallmark of a thriving industry and we're overdue for major hardware innovations to revitalize our industry.

In modern printing, workflow is how we leverage the hardware to make money but the hardware is the backbone of the industry. New hardware will breathe life into our industry, excite a new generation of workers and spawn business startups that continue to succeed. I can't wait to see it and put it to use!

Chuck, totally agree with your comments about the need for innovation.

The industry is a bit strange.

It loves to think of new and different technical innovations but any thought that the existing technology could be greatly improved is stubbornly resisted. It almost seems that the brains are hardwired to think that offset technology is what it is now and no significant improvements can be obtained. It is a self limiting condition.

This process has all the potential to revolutionize the printing industry especially the in-plant side if the cost of the equipment and maintenance reasonable. Our world is still shrinking to I want it now and more and more demand for variable data or articles or brochures designed for the individual client. There will be greater opportunities for our industry to begin anew and keep hard copy print production vital and meaningful to our constituents.

Going uber tactical here, I wonder if any testing has been done with various finishing equipment, especially high speed feeding. I love the product from Xerox's Cypress but was disappointed to see that high speed feed rollers made burnouts in the ink on top of paper. Benny has a great mind and I am so excited about the potential of this technology!

Flat sheets can be quite beautiful, but finished products are salable.
