ANSWER: VPS stands for "Variable Print Specification." VPS is a printer language for describing full-color variable-data print jobs. jobs.

VPS is one of several print-optimization technologies that are used for variable-data-printing.

The VPS language was invented by Scitex Digital Printing, which was acquired by Kodak in 2004; this acquired division of Kodak is now named "Kodak Versamark."

As is true of other print-optimization technologies that are used for variable-data-printing, a guiding principle of VPS is its ability to specify which elements of a variable-data print job will be repeated from page to page. This allows variable-data print jobs to print at or near rated speed on a printer or digital press with a RIP that is capable of understanding VPS, because it is possible to reduce or eliminate the need to download the same data to the printer or digital press and RIP it multiple times during the same print job.
