Panpa Bulletin : September 2006
PRODUCTION The Marlborough Express will double its colour capac- ity and printing speed when new colour towers and folder are installed in a NZ$2m plus refit. The Blenheim-based daily has a combination of Goss Community and Orient press units, general manager Roger Rose said. The press hall currently has one four- high tower and a UOP three-col- our unit that is capable of printing colour on only half a sheet. The UOP unit will be replaced with two new four-high colour towers, each capable of colour printing four broadsheet pages. "We have also got two stacked units which also do four broad- sheet pages of colour but they have problems with colour reg- istration and will be tossed out," Rose said. "They will be replaced with another new four-high tower so we will have four, four-high tow- ers and two mono units basically doubling our colour capacity." The new four-high colour tow- ers are American-made DGMs. The current SC folder will be replaced with an SSC folder all- owing a doubling of the present print speed to 30,000 broadsheet copies per hour. Rose said the press hall had to be extended into the publish- ing area to accommodate the new equipment. Publishing will eventually be moved into part of the new paper store expected to be completed shortly before Christmas. Installation of the new tow- ers and other equipment began mid-August and is expected to be completed by the end of October. Work will be done in four stages without interrupting the daily press runs.

Advanced Publishing Systems, a Melbourne based developer of publishing software systems, including the QuickLayout dum- mying system with Optima Management Viewer, display and classified booking systems, Optima Space Reservation and InDesign extensions for classi- fied and display functions. APS also markets and supports a se- lect range of third-party prod- ucts including WoodWing and QuickTrac. InDesign Server CS2 is a new technology platform released late last year, which allows inte- grators and developers to design automated publishing systems. InDesign Server CS2 shares the same code base as InDesign CS2 and most of the same features, adapted for high-end server de- velopment, providing new levels of automation and efficiency for conventional and web-based applications. When incorporated into edito- rial systems InDesign Server CS2 will handle tasks in background, such as file-checking, saving meta-data, creating thumbnails and PDFs and more functions which would otherwise slow desktop activity. Major uses of InDesign Server CS2 are newspaper and maga- zines with intensive editorial workflows, those wishing to au- tomate front-end systems as well as publishers interested in data- driven systems. Adobe Senior Sales Manager Media/Publishing, Michael Stoddart said he was delighted his team would be working with APS. "We do not licence InDesign Server CS2 directly to users, but do so through a third-party pro- vider, such as APS, because of the special skills required," he said. "APS has an excellent track- record and the necessary skill sets to assist Adobe customers with integration and development."
