Digital Imaging Relaunches with the June/July Issue, Combines Micro Pub News
Press release from the issuing company
Melville, NY (May 17, 2001) - As digital technology continues to rapidly evolve and grow, image creators and print service providers need to understand the new technologies. In response to this need, Cygnus Business Media announced today that Digital Imaging (DI) and Micro Publishing News, another Cygnus-owned publication, will merge to form the "new" Digital Imaging magazine.
The new DI will increase its folio and expand its editorial to cover technology from creative concept to output. This will allow the magazine to be at the forefront of the imaging and graphics industry, linking the creative professional with print service providers to create a chain of information and resources.
"Our research shows that professionals in this market want one single publication that covers the entire scope of the industry," says Kathy Schneider, group publisher of Cygnus' Imaging Group. "We are responding to that by providing the ‘new’ Digital Imaging, which we're confident will be an indispensable resource to all who serve this growing market."
"Workflow has been changed by digital technology," says Michael Sheridan, editor of Digital Imaging. "As a result image creators and print service providers have had to adapt. Their need for a resource which provides comprehensive information on new products and solutions has led us to answer their call."
Digital Imaging's circulation will increase from 35,000 to more than 48,000 professionals involved in the workflow chain from idea to print, with a diverse readership of graphic designers, digital photographers, design firms, ad agencies, content creators and print providers. The publication will also be perfect bound and feature enhanced graphics with a minimum of 62 pages.
The new Digital Imaging will also broaden the editorial content to offer comprehensive coverage of the digital workflow, from concept to production. These enhancements will give professionals in the imaging and graphics industries a multi-faceted resource covering the emerging trends and technologies in the digital world.
