Creation of New Standards Organization – ISIS Papyrus Joins Forces With Major Industry Players in Continued Innovation Endeavor

In February, the Advanced Function Presentation Consortium (AFPC) has become an incorporated non-profit organization. It also celebrates its fifth year of operation focused on promoting industry innovation, interoperability between its 30-plus members and collaboration on mission-critical standards. The group was formed by leaders in the print industry in October 2004 to focus on developing the AFP Color Management Architecture (ACMA), an open standard to drive accurate and consistent color in variable data printing. This focus was expanded in September 2006 to encompass the complete AFP architecture. AFP is a presentation architecture that provides for document and information presentation independent of specific applications and devices. This technology is particularly important in driving new industry initiatives like TransPromo and in the creation of mission-critical documents such as bills, statements, and policies. AFP has powerful advantages over other print architectures like PostScript as it supports very high print speeds, output integrity, and centralized, automated server-based management.
The leading role of ISIS Papyrus in these technologies was recognized by electing Roberto Anzola, head of R&D, as member of the board of directors who will run the newly-formed body.
