Dalim products receive honors during Graph Expo 2003

Press release from the issuing company

Kehl, GERMANY – Two Dalim Software products, DALiM MiSTRAL and TWiST PRiNTEMPO, received ‘Must See em’ honors, while DALIM DiALOGUE received a ‘Worth a Look’ designation during the recently concluded Graph Expo 2003 in Chicago, IL, USA. EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK is the traditional day-before-the-show-opens conference designed to provide show-goers with insight into the industry's changing technology and critical application issues. One of its highlights is the announcement of the products and exhibits that a panel of the industry's most astute consultants and non-vendor related program participants consider to be a Graph Expo and Converting Expo 2003 Must See 'em. These are the products, services, and booth demonstrations that the selection panel feels the majority of show-goers should see. They are the "buzz word" products, services and exhibition demonstrations. It is also recognized that there are compelling niche products which, although important to a selected group of printers or converters, are not broadly applicable to most of the exhibition attendees. Those that are just now becoming available or are still in the early adoption stage are recommended to the show-goer as Worth-a-Looks. DALiM MiSTRAL is a JDF-compliant web-based common electronic submission interface and print production management system for tracking, administration, assembly, correction and approval of “publishable material”. It can also share ODBC compliant data between the prepress workflow application and business systems on other computers. Views of project status – as color-coded page icons – are available in real time, from a web browser as well as JPEG thumbnails and PDF full views of completed pages. TWiST PRiNTEMPO is a browser-based JDF printing system that automates production of imposed pages. PRiNTEMPO can automatically prepare flats based upon specs from previous jobs. Pages are automatically or manually positioned in place. Each page is input, preflighted, cleaned and imposed. Real-time page status is defined by user-specified icons. JPEG thumbnails and PDF views of completed pages provide signature soft proofing. PRiNTEMPO works with common browsers on any platform – and in an open hardware/software prepress environment. DALiM DiALOGUE is a standalone Mac OS X product that provides remote, collaborative web viewing and soft proofing of high-resolution files in a wide range of file formats. Because DALiM DiALOGUE streams data to browsers, users view files in high resolution in real time. Customers zoom, navigate, place virtual notes, take densitometer readings, and ‘chat’ in real time – without client software, running under any client operating system. DALiM DiALOGUE allows unlimited client access to the system. Base price is less expensive than many competitive solutions. “We are excited that three of our software solutions were deemed by the EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK judges as significant products at Graph Expo,” remarks Carol Werlé, Dalim Software CEO. “We agree that products built with centralized JDF-based technologies, built upon web-based server foundations, enhance collaboration among supply chain partners, and represent applications that can truly enhance the productivity of printers and publishers.”
