  • Keynote: Self driving PDF - The Future of Workflow Automation

    The total dimensions of printed paper is shrinking, whereas the number of pages and files that are printed is increasing. This was only economically viable, because at the same time workflow automation was on the rise. PDF software has to support highly flexible automation rules to navigate and adjust files not only according to the job settings but also as required by the specifics of the file. Is prepress finally on its way from handcraft to industry? In this keynote, Dietrich plans to give a (vendor neutral) overview about recent software developments for PDF automation. Furthermore, he will provide a personal view on what may be the next challenges for us as a PDF vendor and for the industry as a whole.

  • The sense and nonsense of standardization in print
    The Ghent Workgroup has been active in the 'standardization for print' arena since 2002, so for more than 17 years. But why was the group started? Where did it originate and with what purpose? And more importantly, does the effort spent on standardization - both by the GWG workgroup and local user associations - pay off? In this session, you’ll learn more about these topics and you’ll hear where the Ghent Workgroup stands today and what we believe are the biggest challenges we’re still facing ...

  • Why would you need HTML to PDF technology, or Javascript, in print production workflows
    PDF is for graphic arts workflows. HTML and Javascript are for the Internet. Isn’t that what we all know? Join this session to see how the use of an HTML to PDF engine built into callas pdfChip, callas pdfToolbox and callas pdfaPilot can be indispensable in a workflow where documents have to be decorated, annotated or created from scratch. The power of the HTML layout engine, coupled with the versatility and speed of a modern Javascript engine allows fast creation of both production and administrative documents and is useful for anything from proof creation, over the generation of shipment documents to the creation of personalized tickets or advertisements on the fly.
