Adobe is promoting industry-wide adoption of the Job Definition Format (JDF) standard at drupa 2004 in Dusseldorf, the international tradeshow for print media, publishing and converting. The company is demonstrating how the XML-based job ticket file format improves communication between document creators and print production teams — and how JDF can automate complex print workflows. Adobe will show how to generate CIP4-compliant JDF files from the desktop using the Adobe Creative Suite and is demoing concepts of how Adobe Creative Suite can create JDF and Portable Document Format (PDF) files that integrate with production and printing systems from companies such as Agfa, Dainippon-Screen, EFI, Esko-Graphics, Fujifilm Electronic Imaging, Heidelberg and Xerox.
