Digital book production is expected to grow fifteen to twenty percent per year for the next 3 years. The book industry is at a tipping point in its history. Run lengths are getting shorter and publishers require quicker turnarounds and one stop shop for all their printing needs.
Digital printing allows for efficient production of books that closely follows the demand curve and helps minimize costs related to ordering, over production, inventory, returns, wastage and more.
KODAK understands the challenges and pressures of this market and, in response, is introducing a range of digital book production solutions capable of producing over 1,000 books per hour.
The KODAK PROSPER 1000 and 5000XLi Presses along with integrated Book manufacturing solutions provide an ideal platform for short run books with economics that break even with offset production at run lengths of up to 7,000 books including returns of obsolescence.
Kodak's goal is to provide book printing solutions that deliver greater revenue opportunities and improved profit margins for printers and publishers worldwide. It’s all about printing the right quantity at the right time at the right cost.
