Label Design Software


CLARiSOFT is a label design software system. It uses a Windows GUI (graphical user interface) to allow the user to create label design templates which may be printed by the ICE and Videojet machines.

Easy and professional label design template allows placement of fields on to a defined print area.

Drag and drop editing tool to insert multiple field types including text, date and time, barcodes, graphics and shapes.

How CLARiSOFT works…

The information contained within each field type in the label design may be fixed, user entered at the CLARiTY screen interface, merged from another field, calculated from the printer RTC (real time clock), or sourced from outside of CLARiSOFT.

This source may be the CLARiSOFT DB database, or another data source provided by the user.

Templates created within CLARiSOFT are saved as a unique file type, known as CIFF (coder independent format file). The CIFF file also contains other information in addition to the printed data, for example date of creation and version of CLARiSOFT.

The CIFF file may be stored permanently within the printer if desired. Transportation from the PC to the printer may be via serial connection (RS232), Ethernet connection, or via a USB memory device.


CLARiSOFT DB is a database structure provided within the CLARiSUITE product to allow the user to manage printed data in a friendly environment.

CLARiSOFT DB presents each CIFF data record in a form view and allows additional fields to be added easily.

The software also provides some data checking facilities for example check digits on primary and secondary barcodes are calculated and checked.
