4th drupa Global trends Report 2017

Posted on: 25-02-2017

Following the successful drupa in Spring 2016, this 4th annual Global Trends report gives the detailed evidence to support the thesis that globally Print is recovering well from the double challenge of the 2007/8 economic crisis and the strategic shift towards digital communications.  Globally 42% of printers described their business as in a ‘good’ economic condition in 2016, with just 11% reporting it as ‘poor’, a net balance of +31%, the highest recorded global result of the report series. Prospects for 2017 are better with a net balance of +46%. However market variances and regional variances are growing. Packaging at +39% net balance and Functional (Ind [...] Read more

Solutions replace technology as the focus at ISE 2017

Posted on: 09-02-2017

For a show as huge and diverse as ISE has become, it might seem like a fruitless exercise to try to discern the emergence of any single major theme, writes Ian McMurray. However, both Brad Grimes, director of communications for InfoComm, and Dave Pedigo, VP of emerging technologies at CEDIA, believe that two have emerged. “I’ve had a number of conversations with our exhibitors, and an important shift in our industry is becoming increasingly clear,” says Grimes. “We’re starting to go beyond the technology, and pivot towards the solution. What does this achieve? What outcome will the customer get from this?” He cites as an example some remarka [...] Read more

Conductive inks in 2017: report by IDTecheX

Posted on: 04-02-2017

The conductive ink industry is still in search of the next big thing. Adverse competitive pressures in core volume markets has led most suppliers to seek new nascent opportunities. The prevalent strategy is now to have as broad a product portfolio as possible, seeding multiple nascent markets, garnering as much customer feedback as possible, and establishing value networks early on.   Suppliers also now intensely watch one another, rapidly launching comparable products which results in an erosion of differentiation. This puts suppliers in a bind: one the one hand, they want to keep technologies secret for long to perfect them in-house, but, on the other hand, they must take it to the [...] Read more

The potential application of HTML and CSS for print

Posted on: 25-01-2017

Each year, students of Graphic and Digital Media complete their training at the Arteveldehogeschool with a bachelor thesis.  Ken Wittebrood received high marks for his bachelor thesis "Exploration of the potential application of pdfChip for crossmedia production". Alumnus Ken Wittebrood investigated whether HTML, CSS and JavaScript could be used to generate files that are suitable for a graphic workflow. In my opinion that's very worthfull, while I experience a lot of troubles in that area as a journalist producing a website and a printed trade magazine as well. In his bachelor thesis, Ken was able to combine two of his passions: the graphic sector and web technologies. "When [...] Read more
