Which New Technologies will Impact Your Business

October 17, 2019

It is an exciting time in the graphic communications industry as it transitions with many new developments and innovations. But what’s fact and what’s fiction? Which technologies will have a long-term impact? What should you be on the look out for?

Join Dr. Bohan as he discusses the top game changers in the industry today, assessing hardware and software solutions. Printing technologies are developing in all areas from productivity, quality, and application perspectives. How does this impact what is being produced? What is the balance between where a job should be printed in one process or the other? Which workflows and strategies are being employed to drive productivity and profitability? Where are the new disruptive technologies?

This session will help you to understand what is happening with new technologies now, how they will impact the products and solutions you are offering, and most critically how they will shape your business in the years to come.

A Glimpse into the Future of Printing Technology

March 26, 2020

Graphic communications technology is changing at a whirlwind pace and creating new services, efficiencies, and in no small way, the future of the industry. Since 1978, the InterTech Technology Awards have been a bellwether of the changes taking place, as they have recognized innovative technology poised to have a significant impact on the industry. For example, PDF-based workflow was recognized in 1999 and web-to-print technology in 2010. Last year, a handful of new technologies were honored. This session looks at those recently honored innovations and explains what they likely predict about our industry’s future.

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • The latest advances that will transform the products and services the graphic communications industry delivers.
  • The state of production inkjet printing and the speed of its adoption.
  • How technology is enabling traditional printing companies to provide cross-media services.
  • The new world of digital embellishments.
  • The application of artificial intelligence to print technology.
  • How software can control and report on production productivity from anywhere.
  • Why “lights out” production is not a pipe dream.
