Digital Dots launches independent Buyers Guide series
Press release from the issuing company
February 23, 2004 -- Independent and objective information to help those investing in digital production technology to make the right decision for their business is now available from specialist research company Digital Dots.
The Digital Dots Buyers Guide is an independent series of five guides tackling JDF, CTP, Preflighting, Color Management & Proofing, and Digital Printing. Sponsored by leading suppliers Agfa, Creo, Enfocus, Esko-Graphics, KPG and Screen, the project aims to raise awareness of production technology to help prospective buyers plan their investments into their next generation systems.
Each guide is presented as a series of articles covering different aspects of the technologies. They include straightforward, in-depth explanations of how the technology works, how it developed and relevant applications. Market response and acceptance is evaluated, along with cost benefits and related investment considerations for effective workflow development. A summary of available technology is provided, including new product highlights for DRUPA, along with an overview of the decision criteria to consider, and a directory of suppliers.
Over the next few months, articles from the series will be published online by CIP4, DRUPA (www.drupa.de/visit/news_buyers_guide_2) and will appear in graphic arts publications worldwide, culminating at DRUPA where the complete buyers guides will be available from the sponsors. Alternatively the guides can be purchased direct from Digital Dots (www.digitaldots.org) at a cost from £15-£25 depending upon the title, with discounts available for bulk orders.
