Xennia Cygnus is an advanced digital print software package, including full image path control as well as managing the other components of an inkjet printing system. The software is now available for customers in industrial, labelling & addressing, décor and ceramics applications looking for an integrated digital front end (DFE) and image path package. Xennia Cygnus is already installed in over 600 printers worldwide, and has a significant business benefit for companies wishing to build high performance digital printing systems without the need for software development.

Xennia Cygnus also supports full offline or online variable data printing (VDP). The software is compatible with a wide range of printheads and printhead driver hardware, and is also capable of controlling other components of printer hardware including ink supply, curing, maintenance and motion systems. The software user interface (UI) can be customised with OEM branding and look and feel.
