Digital Print and Newspapers
If the digital print and finishing solutions are there, where are the customers? The main reason is a lack of capital (on the part of newspapers) to invest. The industry is still facing uncertainty and financial pressures from declining circulations. Some papers have been successful in erecting digital pay walls, others have not. As a result, money for new print and finishing technology is generally scarce.
Years ago, I had listened to presentations on the personalization possibilities that digital print would bring to the newspaper industry. So far, those predictions have not come to pass. As inkjet continues to evolve (and gets faster), this market may finally evolve.
