Can you please tell which SAP Version(ECC) supports High Volume Printing(HVP)?Please advise.
There is no direct linkage of SAP ECC version and high volume printing. As I know ECC 6.0 also using this functionality and some time back i observed 4.6 also using the same.
This you have to think in a different way. it's purely a business decision and analysis done on couple of factors.
like for ex-
Requirement to print labels per minute
type of printers using (CAB, Zebra, HP, etc.,)
any special things part of label, like barcode, special fonts, etc.,
colours (black & white/ double colours/ multiple colurs), as ribbons/ cartridges difers
after above analysis in place, decision will be made to go for suitable printers.
Right now in market, you have all kind of capacities available.
Incase all in sudden - your requirement of printing the label numbers gone up and no capacities then these high volume printing packages will be used to control the Q.
this is purely the corrective action. high volume printing is not necessary to all kind of business requirements.
HVP means a High Volume Printer Driver developed from the former TechniData company.
This printer driver has to be used on the WWI server and it is independent from the SAP version.
This driver supports Zebra Printer Language (ZPL) that is used for e.g. Zebra/Intermec printers. Also TEC, Pago and CSAT are supported.
The HVP is required in the following scenario:
- High Volumes (in my point of view > 300 copies per print job) and
- You have a serial number or a serialized barcode or a serialized list on your label
So Kamal is right to analyse the business requests first.
