Lake Image Systems Document Personalization Puts VDP in the Bindery
Press release from the issuing company
Henrietta, NY; (September 23, 2008) —Lake Image Systems, the worldwide leader in vision control and verification systems, now enables bindery and finishing operations to participate in the growing popularity of variable data printing. Variable signatures and unique page content complicate binding and booklet making. Lake Image Systems software allows bindery operations to ensure personalized content is accurately collated and matched at the point of assembly. As personalization enters the stitching and booklet making areas, bindery and finishing operations can add value to traditional processes through the verification of content.
According to Pat Hoskins , VP- Sales & Marketing at Lake Image Systems, “The use of signature matching systems on stitchers, and collation control verification on booklet makers, has exploded dramatically in the past two years. Lake Image Systems clients in this sector have successfully moved beyond simple signature verification by utilizing technologies which allow personalization to be processed with 100 percent verification. Many of these same customers already utilize Lake Image Systems verification for intelligent mail bar code verification and bundle/stack sorting, and they are able to double the return on their investment by using the same technology for simultaneous personalization verification. We expect to see our growth in this area continue as document finishing facilities add intelligence to legacy equipment.”
