We are looking to do more complex variable data printing (variable QR codes, specifically) on our HP Indigo WS2000 digital press. It came with YoursTruly Design which comes as a plug-in in Quark, but its capabilities are very limited. I don't think YTD is supported by HP anymore since the introduction of SmartStream.
Implementing SmartStream would be very costly, so we are looking at FusionPro Desktop as a less expensive alternative. I've gone through the demo and couldn't send my test job to the press. The test job had very basic artwork and only had 700 records. The FusionPro output to PDF was fine, but the JYLT output choked the rip.
I'd appreciate any insight, advice and recommendations. Thanks in advance!
