Test Target for Measuring Digital Relief Printing

techpapereliefCombining prepress soft ware and the Kodak NexPress digital press’s fifth imaging unit with dimensional Clear Dry Ink, provides the capability to economically produce commercially accepted relief imagery. This opens significant opportunities for creative designers, using existing off -the-shelf soft ware, to print color relief electrophotographic printing on a range of substrates. A test pattern page is used to explore the capability of dimensional imaging on Kodak NexPress.

Illustrations in Real World Electronic Publishing

publishing-tech-papers-fenaughty2Information International Inc. (III), was the first company to deliver true all digital fully illustrated production volume page assembly using a cathode ray tube. This breakthrough increased the efficiency of production printing, removing multiple steps and greatly reducing the cost while increasing the speed. III systems went into aerospace in-plant operations, quickly followed by magazine and daily newspaper production plants. III technology generated a newspaper page so quickly that for the first time in history the score of a night baseball game played on the East Coast could appear in print in a newspaper delivered at 6 AM the next day to a subscriber in Pasadena, CA.

Alfred Fenaughty, the President of III, presented an excellent paper at the 1987 World Conference on Electronic Printing and Publishing entitled “Illustrations in Real World Electronic Publishing.” The paper shows how advanced the III technology was for its time.
