International Cooperation for the Integration of Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress

Created in the middle of 2000 from the manufacturers’ association CIP3, the manufacturers’ and users’ organization CIP4 headquartered in Zurich, had the goal of providing the basis for the computer-based integration of the entire process involved in the production of print products, from preliminary costing and quotations to delivery and billing.

One of the first results has been the agreement of the Job Definition Format (JDF) as a common standard.

This was achieved in conjunction with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, Adobe Systems, MAN Roland, Agfa and the Fraunhofer Institut für grafische Datenverarbeitung (IGD).
