Sometime soon there could be a new name for the London College of Printing, or the London Institute could have a new name and LCP be the same as part of it.

"Communication" is one word used to show the wider scope of what was just print. It seems appropriate as this Digital Print World show is clearly covering more than just digital print. For one thing the workflow presentatations all relate to litho.

Also the Adobe Creative Suite includes GoLive. Design of content for print relates to design for the web.

Not sure about the stand number for Microsoft. I will check the map later. The people on the stand are usually in Seattle. They really do know the product and after 13 years they think the 2003 version is working. There are many samples of print that cover most jobbing types. Composite CMYK is not in the XP version but the file format is the same as 2003 so a file created by a customer in XP could be output by a print service provider with 2003.

Morgana Systems have the binding issues covered. Short run documents are now fairly easy to print but the binding could be a problem. They work with a cover designed for various standards of thickness. There are two kinds of machine for glueing, one for lower volumes.

Sansui Software offer Xpublisha as a way to offer online access to standard formats. Through a browser, templates in InDesign can be edited. The results are previewed in Acrobat Reader.

There will be a Quark version later. This relies on some server software and may be more expensive.

This blog seems ok as still being about IPEX 2002. Sansui seem to be still on the same direction as they were then, except that more of it is clearly working.
