(MARCH 10, 2003) The 2003 IPA Technical Seminar, to be held May 13-15 at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza, Chicago, will focus on “Content & Color” as it addresses new and evolving technology having an impact on today’s graphic solutions provider. Designed for the small as well as large graphic communication company, the program will cover everything from content management, asset management, and an RGB Workflow to color management, digital photography, and a PDF/X Workflow.
The seminar will get off to a lively start on May 13 with North America’s first-ever Color Proofing Roundup. Beginning with a comprehensive discussion of critical issues related to digital proofing, the session will introduce suppliers of proofing systems who will, over the course of the seminar, demonstrate their capabilities by outputting a series of test files. Results of the tests will measure both colorimetric accuracy to specified targets as well as a system’s ability to correctly process all the commands provided in the files. Seminar attendees will have the unique opportunity to see for themselves the processes and techniques to achieving the highest quality proofing results. The seminar will close on May 15 with an evaluation of the results of the Color Proofing Roundup.
The 2 1/2-day seminar will feature dual tracks — a Technical Track provides an in-depth look at new and evolving technology while a Management Track examines business decisions associated with buying, implementing and selling new technologies.
The IPA Technical Seminar is highly regarded in the industry because it features presentations from actual users who, speaking from experience, share their successes and failures along with suggestions and warnings. The informal nature of the program allows for animated conversation and interaction — and often intense discussions - between speakers and attendees. In addition, there is ample opportunity for networking with industry peers. Commenting, Lee Webster, R.R. Donnelley and IPA Technical Seminar Chair, said, “IPA members are some of the most innovative graphic solutions providers in the industry. And the sharing at this seminar is second to none.”
