Drupa is a landmark within the printing industry for the introduction of new production printing systems. However Drupa 2000 may well be the first Drupa to witness the launch of more in-press imaging printing systems and electronic printing systems than conventional printing presses. Since nearly all content that is created and prepared for publishing, has been processed in a computer system, a computer-to…output device is now the method of choice.In addition to advances and adaptations of existing technologies, several new technologies will be presented for the first time; with the potential of having a big impact on the printing and communication industry. Certain production requirements can be addressed and new fields of application created, depending on the technology applied by using a permanent master or a variable image carrier. Among the many novelties we will see, are tools to support the trend towards integration of the whole print production process. This paper will discuss some of the prominent technological developments exhibited at Drupa and their implications on future markets.
