Demystifying JDF (15 mins)

Just back from the Worldwide Apogee user Group Conference in Belgium, Garry Muratore, Agfa Graphic System’s Marketing Manager – Oceania, (pictured right) will outline how the JDF standard will impact on your business. JDF lets you streamline and expand the development, production, and distribution of content to multiple printing plants, e-commerce systems, data warehouses and more. JDF makes it easier to re-purpose content for multiple products – from print to DVD, Web to wireless technologies.

‘New Directions in Cumulus’ (1 hour)

Agfa is excited about the fact we are working on this seminar with Jennifer Neumann, CEO of Canto Software AG.( pictured right) With the forthcoming ApogeeX, asset management becomes crucial to management of large server sites dealing with client files and production traffic. Jennifer will present a detailed look at the Cumulus line of products within the context of worldwide trends in digital asset management.

She will also speak as of Canto’s adoption and incorporation of the JDF standard in their product line.

In 2002 Canto celebrates its 12th Anniversary &
Cumulus turns 10. Cumulus Server Sales exceed 10,000, with many of these operating at Agfa prepress sites.
Cumulus 5.5 is the Digital Asset Management System for organising and publishing any digital file – such as images, layouts, presentations, video, audio or text. Cumulus offers powerful search capabilities and access via the Internet.

It reads metadata and is flexible and customisable, and adding Options can also expand this amazing Asset Management tool.

Live Demonstrations (15 mins)
Agfa’s Technology Partners, Creative Folks (Sydney)
and DPI (Melbourne),
will demonstrate Cumulus in a typical prepress/print working environment – showing how seamlessly it can work with a range of Apogee products including Create and Pilot.
There will be plenty of time for questions, as both Agfa and Cumulus will have technical representation at the seminars.
