Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, Aug. 21 -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced ShareStream Elements, a major new addition to its proven ShareStream soft-proofing and collaboration platform. ShareStream Elements brings the power of routing, approval and collaborative workflow to the creative process. As an integrated component of the MediaCompass(TM) suite of online tools from RR Donnelley Premedia Technologies, ShareStream Elements works in concert with ShareStream PRO's color-critical online soft-proofing capabilities to create a comprehensive design-to-print collaboration workflow for customers"Customers told us they loved the workflow tools that they were using to collaborate on color with ShareStream PRO," said Ronnie Sarkar, Senior VP of Business Development and Technology for RR Donnelley's Premedia Technologies. "They have said that they wanted to extend the same tools upstream into their creative workflow processes." Among the new capabilities of ShareStream Elements is full access to the Adobe Acrobat Pro annotation and collaboration toolset within MediaCompass workflows. "Customers are familiar with the power and sophistication of the Adobe Acrobat technology," continued Sarkar, "But many struggled with creating a framework for effective routing and approval workflows. E-mail is not a workflow tool." ShareStream Elements provides a central, secure internet-accessible portal for the management, routing and approval of graphic content. "This latest release of ShareStream demonstrates our continued commitment to developing tools and technologies that make our customers more competitive and efficient," said Mary Lee Schneider, President of RR Donnelley Premedia Technologies. "We have shown that accurate color could be viewed online with our landmark SWOP certification in 2003. Now we're extending the technology even further upstream into the creative, concept and design stages." ShareStream Elements is available to RR Donnelley's Premedia Technologies' customers beginning in August 2006. MediaCompass, RR Donnelley's comprehensive suite of integrated online asset management, workflow and collaboration tools, includes the following exclusive tools: -- Image Merchant for digital asset management. -- ShareStream, for color and content soft-proofing, document routing and approval -- DemandSelect(SM) for dynamic publishing -- AdSpring for ad-placement and management workflow -- Photo-flow and StudioStream for remote photography approval and proofing tools.
