FreeFlowTM Variable Information Suite offers a powerful portfolio of tools enabling Variable Information Postscript Printware (VIPP) for maximum production efficiency of variable data printing and presentment.
VIPP is an open language from Xerox that enables highest-performance output of personalised (variable-data) PostScript documents.
For the past few years, the worldwide community of VIPP users has been programming VIPP jobs by hand, mainly for production printing and publishing applications on Xerox DocuPrint and DocuTech machines.
Now, with VIPP Tools, personalising documents has just got a whole lot easier. Now the rest of us, non-programmers in a wide range of environments, including data centre, print shop and office, can point and click our way to the power of personalisation and one-to-one communication.
Built upon the standard DocuTech and DocuPrint systems
Supports industry open systems standards
Maximises network facilities - VIPP keeps the static data stored at the printers in print-ready format, and only requires transmission of the variable data between the host and the printers
Allows imaging and data processing applications to produce an easy-to-implement PostScript datastream
Automatically generates the job program as a user points and clicks or drags and drops in a window that displays precisely how the printed document will appear
Keeps applications independent of PostScript and printer evolution
