vLogix, Inc., developer of variable print controllers, announced
today that Wallace Computer Services, Lisle, Illinois, has taken
delivery on the first shipment of an order to purchase an additional
twelve vLogix HPO variable print controllers utilizing the patented
VariScript™ software for their direct response printing operations.
Wallace, who already has 45 HPO controllers in twelve
of their plants across the country, will take full delivery of
all units by April, 2002.
"VariScript is the only software capable of building variable
PostScript files directly from platform-independent data, RIPing
it into bitmaps at a rate of 20 per second, and sending it straight
to the printer rather than to a disk," explains vLogix Vice President
Eric Wolf. "The result is high-volume, information-intensive
jobs printed at high speed with simplified scheduling and workflow
Wallace attests that the VariScript system significantly saves
on production costs through a dramatic decrease in paper and ink
waste and by greatly increased productivity. "We've needed
a universal solution for high-speed variable printing, and from
what we've seen, vLogix has it" adds Scott Stevens, Director
of Digital Technologies for Wallace.
vLogix's patented object oriented technology, VariScript, is
used by leading digital printers throughout the world to produce
high volumes of individually tailored items such as direct response
mail materials and labels. Unlike any other system, VariScript
combines four powerful features into one package - variable PostScript
technology to achieve graphically exact output, object-oriented
dynamic page composition, "on the fly" RIPing to eliminate
spooling bottlenecks, and end-to-end process controls for unparalleled
accuracy. This results in printers being able to deliver finished
pieces with greater accuracy, at higher volumes, and within shorter
time frames than ever before possible. VariScript currently drives
a wide variety of print engines from Delphax, Nipson, Océ,
Scitex, Toray, Videojet (Marconi), and Xeikon.
Wallace is a leading provider
of Total Print Management products and services to Fortune 1000
customers, producing and distributing forms, labels, direct response

then Wallace has expanded to become one of the largest printers
