Videk has entered into joint technology activities with
Heidelberg, both companies announced today.
The initial project is to add Videk's integrated print
vision verification technology to Heidelberg's Digimaster 9110
black & white digital printing systems.
The addition of Videk's vision systems to Heidelberg
products such as the Digimaster 9110 will provide transactional
printers with enhanced security and print verification
capabilities. This accessory further enhances Heidelberg's
one-to-one marketing print applications by enabling the merging of
variable data document content with matching individualized
finishing applications. Videk and Heidelberg will work together to
jointly present their products at industry trade shows.
"Videk is very excited about this new relationship," said Tom
Slechta, president, Videk. "We expect to quickly lay the groundwork
in developing innovative vision solutions that will be tightly
integrated with the Heidelberg cut sheet printers and overall
"Heidelberg is committed to continued growth and
technology leadership in high-volume production digital
printing," said Len Christopher, Vice President Workflow
Solutions at Heidelberg. "We are continuing to pursue new
market space opportunities, and the integration of Videk's
technology with our Digimaster platform provides a powerful
transactional printing solution for applications in the financial,
insurance, and medical industry segments."
