Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Walks through the entire computer-to-plate process, starting with its evolution, to give a wide view of a technology that is dramatically changing the printing and publishing industries. A section on technology overviews the 20-year development of the technology and details aspects including press trends, origination, raster image processing, proofing, and the image carrier. Later chapters in that section discuss quality control, digital workflow, and return on investment. Section II profiles 11 manufacturers for the industry, with company background information and details of products and the technology beyond them. A final chapter offers comparative tables of profiled companies' products and their characteristics and prices. Includes appendices on internal vs. external drum technology, and platesetter addresses, plus b&w photos and diagrams. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
