Camera data verification is now more and more a requirement when purchasing printing equipment, direct mail equipment, and packaging equipment. If you thought you wouldn’t require it, think again. If your customers aren’t requesting it, they will soon. If your competition doesn’t offer it, they will soon. Why? Because some government regulations already require it… especially in the financial, insurance, and health industries. And if you will want piece of those industries, you’d better have the ability to provide it.
But what is camera verification? In the case of data verification (which is what we’re speaking about here), it is when a computer reads and confirms printed information. 토토사이트 A digicam talks about a title, number, address, etc., and verifies certain things. It may be the order and sequence in which the record shows up, in line with the database the computer is matching the data with. It will even verify that all record (page) of a file exists, thus completing a whole job. And, needless to say, it may verify that barcodes, IMB, or 2D codes exist, correct, and readable.
Some of these things save money, some are absolute requirements. Here are a few examples of how camera and data verification is used with packaging, printing, and mailing equipment:
Matching: Banking and financial statements, health care records, insurance statements… most of these are full of personal information. When there is a drawback somewhere in the printing, collating, and inserting of these records, camera verification can catch it. The computer can look at personalized info on each page (front and back) and ensure the proper people are getting the proper records. This might be barcodes, names, addresses, and/or record numbers. Without camera matching, an individual could easily end up with someone else’s statements-a severe violation of personal and corporate privacy.
Output Verification: With all the different direct mail equipment associated with putting together a mail piece, it’s quite simple for a minumum of one link in the chain to weaken. This can mean missing pages, garbled print, or pages being out of order. Electronic output verification offers you, your customer, and government regulators proof that all package is complete, addressed properly, and in order. Additionally it proves that the IMB and other barcodes were printed according to spec.
Read-Print or Read-Write: Other than matching and output verification, there’s another easy way to be sure data printed in two different places match each other. In matching, both pieces are printed and then matched together. With a read-print setup, each printed record is based on a file or record that’s recently been printed. For example:
Bindery Applications (stitchers, polywrappers, booklet makers, folders, collators): In binding and packaging industries, data verification can make sure that signatures end up in the proper places, that document sets get the correct covers (with the proper signatures and personal information), and detect missing or duplicate pieces within a set.
Without camera verification, any number of things could go wrong in the examples above. Even though you can say for certain that each printed piece has the proper information, checking and correcting mechanical malfunctions might be frustrating and costly without camera verification. What’s more, in the customer’s mind, the evidence of accuracy and quality is what’s important. Camera verification is the easiest way to supply that proof.
