Spectrum Conference Spans Digital & Print Content

Managing content for multiple channels is the central theme to a multi-faceted educational program by IDEAlliance on the show floor at PRINT 13.

Among the highlights are the 2013 Spectrum Conference Content Integration: Bridging Print & Digital on September 10 in Room S106B.

The concept behind Spectrum is to give participants the benefits of learning through the sharing of real-world production experiences by creatives, brand owners, producers, and suppliers, who will share successes and challenges of transforming workflows in a multi-channel world.

The takeaway is an understanding of the issues, new technologies, and practical applications of media production in the industry’s multi-channel environment.
