San Francisco, CA (April 19, 2004) - The International Cooperation for the Integration of Processes in Prepress, Press, and Postpress (CIP4) Organization today announced the Seybold CIP4 JDF Intensive, Monday, April 19, at Seybold Amsterdam 2004. This is the first JDF day focused exclusively on the end user perspective. Over the course of the day, the speakers at the Intensive will:
- Show how JDF is designed to streamline information exchange between different applications and systems.
- Demonstrate how JDF is intended to enable the entire industry, including design, conventional, and digital printing, prepress, and publishing companies to implement and work with individual workflow solutions.
- Reveal how JDF will allow integration of heterogeneous products from diverse vendors to seamless workflow solutions.
"Last year, CIP4's JDF Day at Seybold Amsterdam was the single most successful JDF event of the year, with over 200 attendees," reports Margaret Motamed, CIP4 marketing officer and track co-chair. "The 2004 JDF Day at Seybold Amsterdam promises to be even better with the addition of a case studies session with end users discussing their motivation to become an early adopter and their expectations for the future. We've also added a 'seven minutes with a JDF vendor' session where attendees can talk directly with representatives from companies developing JDF-enabled products."
"A number of vendors are ready to demonstrate the interoperability of their JDF-enabled products and services at drupa 2004," added Stephan Jaeggi, CEO of PrePress Consulting and the track co-chair. "At the Seybold CIP4 JDF Intensive, we'll demonstrate to end users how JDF-enabled products can be used by a company to build connected workflows and automation between systems, software, and equipment of different vendors."
CIP4's JDF Day will be held Monday, April 19, in conjunction with Seybold Amsterdam 2004, April 18-21 at the Amsterdam RAI Centre in the Netherlands. Conference details and schedule are available at: http://www.seybold365.com/.
