CIP4’s Print Automation Live and CIPPI Awards Programs take Center Stage at drupa 2012
New Integrations/New Milestones in Print Automation is CIP4’s Focal Point
The International Cooperation for the Integration of the Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress (CIP4) organization announced that in addition to the Print Automation Zone that they will host in the drupa innovation park (dip) at drupa 2012, CIP4 will also feature “Print Automation Live” and CIPPI Awards programs. In keeping with their new integrations/new milestones focus, the Print Automation Live program will highlight a wide range of JDF interoperability demonstrations throughout the drupa show floor, while the CIPPI Awards Program will recognize those printers who have achieved major milestones in print automation on center stage in the dip.
CIPPI Awards Program
Another CIP4 feature at the drupa innovation park will be the 2012 CIP4 International Print Production Innovation (CIPPI) awards. The CIPPI Awards recognize printers who have implemented ground-breaking, innovative and highly productive print automation systems. Applicants are required to provide detailed case studies reviewed by an independent panel of five international judges. “The dip is about innovation, and having the CIPPI awards presentation live on the dip main stage, is a great way to recognize that innovation comes from printers, and not just from vendors of systems and software,” said dip Manager, Sandra Winter of Winter Consulting. “Previous CIPPI Award case studies have demonstrated printer creativity, and we look forward to hearing what this year’s winners have achieved.”
The CIPPI Awards are presented to applicant printers with recognition to their supporting vendors. The CIPPI Awards program and presentation will be held on Sunday, May 6th at the dip Main Stage in hall 7.0 immediately following the show close, from 17:00 to 19:00 hours. Printers and vendors interested in submitting an application for the 2012 CIPPI Awards can find application forms, example case studies from previous years’ events, and rules and guidelines at www.cip4.org/cippi. CIPPI Award applications for 2012 must be submitted to CIP4 by Friday, February 17, 2012.
