CIP4 Announces Free Reference for Printing Industry

The International Cooperation for the Integration of the Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress (CIP4) organization announced publication of the Spring 2011 edition of the JDF Marketplace. The JDF Marketplace is a directory of products that support JDF and PrintTalk, as well as related services such as integration support and consulting services. The JDF Marketplace is published in English, and is available as a free PDF download to the general public.

The current JDF Marketplace is 162 pages and includes 151 detailed product and service listings. Listings include JDF-enabled products for all phases of print production, from customer-facing systems through MIS, prepress, press and postpress. In addition to the basic listings, the JDF Marketplace includes JDF/integration support hotline information for many manufacturers, as well as a short, plain-English introduction to JDF.

"For printers looking to integrate systems and manage an automation program, this is a 'must have' reference," said CIP4 education and marketing officer, Tim Daisy of Prism. "It is one of our most popular downloads from the website."
