Composer is a Windows software application used to lay out print jobs and send variable print data. It is tightly integrated with all XiJet TIJ and piezo printers, both monochrome and color, so you can build jobs quickly and print with confidence! Print jobs are laid out on a graphical canvas that represents the “page” to be printed. A print job can include text, barcodes, graphics, database fields, counters, date/time, and other objects.
Composer has been developed continuously over 15 years and its rich feature set is well suited for a variety of variable data applications, including mail addressing, coding/marking, labeling, and product decoration. It includes advanced features like Read & Print, WYSIWIG proofing, intelligent ink tracking, driving external devices, color management, and Composer Remote Interface. A host computer running Composer can drive up to 16 print heads simultaneously.
Printer operators spend a significant amount of time interacting with the layout software, so it must be simple to use. Composer has received praise for its intuitive, uncluttered interface, where features and settings are easy to find. The interface can be easily translated to other languages.
