Digital Printing Front-Ends
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.1998.14.1.art00079_2  Published OnlineJanuary 1998

Digital printers bypass the creation of film, plates, and other steps required for traditional printing. It is a technology that compresses the printing process. Digital files go directly from the creator to the press. The digital printing process takes fewer steps while shifting the emphasis to customer service. As such, digital printing offers significant advantages over offset printing.New market opportunities arise. Hand in hand with these opportunities, new challenges have to be met resulting in a complete rethinking of the production process, from the creation of documents, over the processing up to the printing.In this paper, front-end requirements are presented, illustrated with Chromapress IntelliStream® implementation examples.
