Avanti’s Print MIS Receives Integrated Digital Printing Certification from CIP4

Avanti Computer Systems Limited (Booth 861) announces its Avanti for Integrated Digital Printing (IDP), its newest standard has received CIP4 certification.

“Avanti was an early adopter of the JDF standard and the company is very committed to the CIP4 organization,” says Brandon M. Iskey, JDF Product Certification Program Administrator at Printing Industries of America, “Avanti has invested a lot of time, R&D and energy in CIP4’s certification process and it is not surprising that its thought leadership has enabled the company to lead the way in providing digital print services.”

Avanti’s digital automation solution underwent a stringent testing process by Printing Industries of America, (the certification body for CIP4) and was officially certified by the CIP4 Organization (International Cooperation for the Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress) for its ability to seamlessly communicate through JMF and JDF (Job Messaging Format and Job Definition Format), with the digital equipment in the print shop.

“Avanti is excited to be at the forefront of digital print workflow automation.
