Launches European Printing Industry Research on Hardware and Software Investments and Business TrendsKey Highlights: Print volume that originates online is expected to grow dramatically in the course of the next two years – from 10% to 18% by 2014. There is sizable growth from a software adoption and print volume perspective in variable data, automated production, and web-to-print. Investment plans for digital color printing equipment top the list of planned investments. 64% of respondents believe they need to transform or have already transformed from a print service provider (PSP) into a marketing services provider (MSP). (Weymouth, MA) March 12, 2012…InfoTrends recently published two new research reports on the state of the European printing industry from a hardware and software perspective.

On a printing press each color of ink used in a document is printed one at a time. Each printing plate used on the press is made up only of components of the page in that one color. Separations are artwork split into component plates of cyan, magenta, yellow , and black in preparation for process printing (CMYK) or into the required number of plates for spot color printing - a plate for each color of ink. Each separation prints a single process or spot color. Digital PostScript or PDF files take two primary forms: composite or pre-separated. Which you use depends on your software, colors, and the software or RIP your printer or service bureau uses.
PatternStream can be used to generate PDF from one or multiple databases, XML/HTML files, and flat files — and published for print and/or electronic distribution. As with any PatternStream license, this can be implemented on a workstation – or on a database or intranet server, depending on needs and licensing constraints. This allows dynamic PDF creation based on various data sources and published directly in a user’s browser or transferred to a specific repository location. Examples of PatternStream database and web server implementation will be demonstrated upon request. In addition, a new FrameMaker Server demonstration site is under development.

Digital Front Ends for Digital Presses By How ie Fenton One of the keys to productivity today is creating fast, efficient, automated digital workflow. One piece of equipment that has become the focus of this productivity is the digital front end. If you have not heard the term digital front end or DFE, don’t be concerned, like the artist formerly known as Prince - it is the product formerly known as the RIP (raster image processor). The difference is that new features are being offered which, in essence, combine functions that used to be done during output (i.e. creating separations), on separate machines (i.e. trapping) or on servers (i.e. imposition).
