Seybold SF–Beyond the Golden Gates, Digital Innovation Awaits
This will be the first time WAM!NET exhibits at a show after the much publicized acquisition of 4-Sight. Leading the show will be the shipping announcement of WAM!BASE, a wide-area networked digital asset database and the roll-out of WAM!NET’s channel program for that product, the WAM!BASE MasterMind Program.
WAM!BASE—a major launch for WAM!NET at present—is a collaborative digital asset management solution that facilitates inter-organizational workflow from a central database of digital assets.
Markzware Software will be announcing its advanced preflight technology, code-named Black Box, as an enhancement to Markzware’s FLIGHTCHECK.
FLIGHTCHECK, currently available on Macintosh and Windows, offers the ability to check native documents created by QuarkXPress, Adobe PageMaker, Illustrator, FrameMaker, Photoshop, PDF, Macromedia’s FreeHand, CorelDRAW and Multi-Ad Creator, verifying all elements including colors.
In other preflighting activities, Extensis will showcase Preflight Pro 2.0, which builds on a user interface with powerful new features that further streamline prepress workflows to ensure electronic files are output error-free.
Native application support for Adobe PageMaker, Illustrator, Photoshop, QuarkXPress, Macromedia FreeHand and Multi-Ad Creator2 is on board with this new Extensis offering, not to leave out complete PDF integration. Users can create a clean PDF file from Preflight Pro through links with Adobe Acrobat Distiller 3.0.
