HP SmartStream Designer
EVERY HP Indigo press comes with HP SmartStream Designer software and is therefore ready to produce full colour, personalised collateral "out of the box" with no hidden licensing fees attached! This application provides robust variable data printing and imposition tools designed specifically to optimise output from HP Indigo digital presses. Available as a plug-in for Adobe InDesign or as XTension software for QuarkXPress, HP SmartStream Designer utilises SNAP, an HP Indigo proprietary RIP-less data assembly technology, to ensure that the press operates at full speed even when printing complex variable data jobs.

HP SmartStream Print Servers
The HP SmartStream Onboard Print Server - is an on-press intregrated RIP that is built into every commercial sheet fed press except the 7000 series.
The HP SmartStream Production Pro Print Server - is a high-performance raster image processor and press controller designed to drive large volumes of jobs, including complex variable-data jobs.

A highly flexible, centralized and scalable solution, the server can manage up to 12 HP Indigo presses, with automatic load balancing and single point of control. With robust integration to print service providers’ management information systems, the Production Pro facilitates efficient management of production processes.
