Kommunikationsparadies 2015.001

© 2015 Grafik: Andreas Weber, Mainz. Kalligrafie: Prof. Hermann Zapf.

 

Eine Ehre. Eine Freude: Im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung der Hochschule RheinMain, Wiesbaden, wurde ich gebeten, mitzuwirken. “Das Vortragsprogramm zum Thema ‘Strategien’ ist dank Ihrer Bereitschaft mitzumachen ein spannendes geworden. Rund 30 Studierende im Masterprogramm (davon hälftig Designer und Mediamanager) freuen sich auf Sie und Ihr Thema”, verkündete Prof. Gregor Krisztian. Mein Thema am 2. Dezember 2015, ab 17.45 Uhr: “Willkommen im Kommunikationsparadies, dem Reich der Kunstsinnigkeit.” Anbei erste Infos. Eine Doku folgt, inkl. den Anmerkungen der Zuhörer. Ich bin gespannt. —Andreas Weber

 

Kunst ist Kommunikation. Und Kommunikation ist Kunst.

Damit ist das Fundament unseres Mainzer Kommunikationsparadieses gelegt. Ein Ort als ein Wirkungsraum für Gespräche. Gespräche über das Leben, die Kunst, die Technologien, die Sinnhaftigkeit unseres Daseins und Tuns. Diese Gespräche werden beflügelt durch das künstlerische Schaffen aller Disziplinen, multisensorisch und vielfältig erfahrbar.

Das Kommunikationsparadies ist daher Dreierlei:

  1. Eine Geisteshaltung.
  2. Eine Methodik.
  3. Ein Erlebnisraum!

Das Kommunikationsparadies ist kein ›L’art pour l’art‹-Geplänkel. Sondern adressiert die Kultur- und Kreativ-Wirtschaft* mit ihren spezifischen Anforderungen als drittgrößtem Sektor nach Automotive und Maschinenbau!

* Laut Untersuchungen der Deutschen Bundesregierung mit 249.000 Betrieben, 1,5 Mio. Beschäftigen, € 145 Mrd. Jahresumsatz (krisenfest!) und einer Bruttowertschöpfung von > € 60 Mrd.

 

 

Wer mehr erfahren will über das Kommunikationsparadies, es aktiv nutzen, sich einbringen möchte, der wende sich bitte persönlich an Andreas Weber.

The first results of the 2nd drupa Global Insights Report “Touch the future – Applications that can create growth” are out now. Implementing new print applications is for many the best way to regain growth in the demand for print.

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 16 November 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 13 November, which examines an ongoing European initiative linked to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) directive which could perhaps spell the end of gravure printing in Europe. For the full article, please visit our Verdigris environmental section. The link appears below, or via the index on our Website.

The week’s news began with Durst at ITMA, where the company launched a new series of super high-performance multi-pass inkjet printers for digital textile production and a new pigmented ink; while Goss International’s new owners have announced the appointment of a new president and chief executive officer. Tuesday saw KBA publish its third quarter 2015 figures, having achieved a pre-tax profit with a turnaround in earnings and with continued solid order intake. It really is beginning to look good.

On Wednesday, Messe Düsseldorf led the headlines as it announced that its Second Global Insights Report is nearing completion and will be available soon in English (and in 7 languages overall). The detailed announcement appears in both English and German in our drupa Newsroom, Please don’t miss it. Bobst also in the headlines with a Gold Award at FEFCO 2015 in Barcelona, for its advanced digital inkjet corrugated press which uses Kodak’s high-speed Stream Inkjet technology.

On Thursday, Sappi Limited published its results for the fourth quarter and full 2015 financial year and is also looking good, with a strong performance and with full year earnings per share excluding special items up 55% for the financial year ended 30 September. FESPA announced its call for entries for the 2016 Awards, marking the start of its search for pioneering and innovative projects in the industry.

Friday’s headlines began with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen revealing that it is on course after the first half of financial year 2015/2016, with sales and result up on the previous year. The second half was also boosted by the sale of the company’s central-Heidelberg headquarters which was posted as income.

You will find quite a number of show-related articles again this week, led by EFI Reggiani on Tuesday, as it showcased new innovations in textile technology at ITMA 2015, including the debut of the new ReNOIR NEXT system. Then we have Mimaki with new inks. Also DuPont and EFI Reggiani on Wednesday, with new inks. Then we have ColorGATE at InPrint in Munich. You will also find an announcement from Baumer on Friday with the world première of a new Tesla family of innovative, high-performance application heads for hot melt adhesives, out of the recent FachPack show in Nuremberg.

A selection of sales and installations successes began with numerous sales from Duplo on Monday out of its recent and successful London Calling event. There’s also a separate announcement from Rapidity with Duplo. On Wednesday Goss International announced that Sandhills Publishing has invested in a new eight-unit Sunday 2000 web press and Pacesetter high-speed saddlestitcher; while EDS Group chose Manroland Web Systems for its latest Lithoman relocation and a Lithoman upgrade. On Thursday Heidelberg UK announced that a Speedmaster XL 75-5+L will be delivered to Thomson Print & Packaging in Edinburgh, Scotland early next year; and the first all-in-one design and print shop in Cape Town’s exclusive Atlantic seaboard suburb of Sea Point, All@OneStop, has added a Xerox press from Bytes.

On Friday, Altacel Flexible Packaging in Weesp, The Netherlands, announced that it has recently fired up a gearless 10-colour KBA-Flexotecnica EVO XG flexo press. This article also appears in Online Features to enable additional photographs to be included, so please don’t miss it. It’s stunning!  Also on this day, independently-owned South African print and design store Wizardz has added a new Xerox Colour C70 printer in TygerValley, Cape Town; while also in South Africa, JMB Labels has invested in a second MPS flexo press and first EB machine in Africa for its Amalgam, Johannesburg plant.

If you work down the list carefully, you will also find other key announcements this week from Xeikon, Gandy, Ricoh Europe with Elsevier, UPM at the CBD Business and Biodiversity Forum 2015 in Helsinki, and from Imaging Solutions and Taopix, among others.

Until next time. My best regards,

Mike Hilton

ValuePublishing Teil 3 Facts Figures Zielgruppen Reichweite UPDATE SELFRUNNING.004

HINTERGRUNDINFORMATIONEN:

Im Gespräch mit zahlreichen Experten sowie dem drupa-Team der Messe Düsseldorf ergaben sich bereits 2015 für uns alle spannende Ansatzpunkte. Im Fokus: Die Vielfalt und die Komplexität der neuen Lösungen im Print- und Papiersektor wächst mit ungeheurer Dynamik. Durch Industrie 4.0 und das Internet-der-Dinge, die aktuellen Treiber der Digitalisierung, werden gleichzeitig sämtliche Geschäfts- und Kommunikationsprozesse revolutioniert, wodurch die Herausforderungen insgesamt explosionsartig wachsen.

Das drupa-Motto „Touch the Future“ sowie ein ambitioniertes drupa-Ausstellungsprogramm spiegeln die noch nie dagewesene, extrem hohe Taktfrequenz, mit der fulminante Veränderungen einhergehen, wieder. Unsere aktuellen ValuePublishing Stories zu Heidelbergs drupa-Strategie „Simply Smart“ belegen eindrucksvoll, wie man auf aktuelle Entwicklungen reagieren kann.

Die gute Nachricht zur drupa 2016 lautet daher: Aus Expertensicht nimmt die Print- und Papierbranche bei der digitalen Transformation geradezu eine Vorreiterrolle ein.

Die weniger gute Nachricht: Die Masse an Neuheiten, die auf der Leitmesse ab
31. Mai 2016 zu sehen sein werden und damit die Informationsfülle, sind schwer
zu bewältigen. Jedenfalls nicht mit den Möglichkeiten, die wir bislang nutzen.

Der Ausweg aus unserer Sicht: Innovative Technologien und Lösungen muss man auch durchgängig innovativ kommunizieren! In Echtzeit. Multimedial. Markt-,
kunden- und bedarfsorientiert.

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 2 November 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 30 October, which this week takes another look at recycling of digital prints. One of the biggest threats to the spread of digital printing methods is concern for the print’s recyclability. In part this is due to scaremongering by vested interests, but printed matter must be deinked if it is to be recycled and some digital printing methods produce prints that are hard to deink. Hard but not impossible. Read the full article in our Verdigris section. We also have Gallus, post-Labelexpo, in Online Features Chapter 07.

The leaders on Monday and Tuesday report on Kodak’s third quarter results, and provide UPM-Kymmene’s interim results for their respective 2015 financial year; while on Wednesday, UPM Kymi reported that its Eur 160 million pulp mill expansion and major upgrade has now proceeded to final finishing work, which will enable annual production capacity at the Kymi mill to increase by 170,000 tonnes to 700,000 tonnes.

Wednesday’s lead went to Heidelberg, as customers Baier & Schneider is soon to start running a Speedmaster SX 52 Anicolor that incorporates the 40,000th printing unit in the SM 52/SX 52 series and is destined for the Group’s Heilbronn, Germany plant. On Thursday, Kodak took the lead again as it announced settlement of the long-outstanding dispute with Collins Inkjet, regarding Kodak Versamark inks with both companies agreeing on-going co-operation for the future.

On Friday, FESPA announced that its Global Summit is to return this year and will be held from 1 – 2 December, at the Andaz Hotel in Amsterdam.

With InPrint in Munich taking place from 10 – 12 November in Munich, Inca Digital will debut its new service: ‘Inca Genius’. A dedicated technology and applications arm, Inca Genius is designed to serve the needs of organisations looking for an established partner to help develop innovative inkjet production solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. You’ll find more about this in the article among Friday’s headlines.

The past week has seen some stunning sales and installations starting with Brydian Cards on Monday with a KBA Genius 52-UV five-colour press. >From Epson at SixTeeSix in the UK; and KBA at Amway in North America with a Rapida 106 6-colour UV press, on Tuesday; and again from KBA on Wednesday with an eight-colour Rapida 106 perfector with LED-UV at Oberdruck in Austria. Scodix also announced a first in Europe for the new Scodix Foil system for the Scodix Ultra Pro at OFT in Neuss, Germany. On Thursday, MPS announced that GM Graphix in Alberton announced that it has installed the first flexo press in South Africa to use LED UV drying. It is the company’s third MPS pr ess. BCQ Group in Buckingham, has added a Promatrix 106 die-cutter from HeidelbergUK, along with a Stitchmaster ST500; while Signbox UK has enhanced its production with a new cutting-edge Durst Rho P10 160 UV inkjet printer.

On Friday, Heidelberg USA announced that it is soon to install the world’s first XL 106 long-perfector with X4 delivery, complete with full UV, LE UV and LED UV; and Watkiss announced that AB Print Group has chosen a nearline configuration of the Watkiss PowerSquare as the optimum solution for finishing from the firm’s assortment of litho and digital presses.

If you check out the headlines carefully, you will also find new software and upgrades from Esko, Enfocus and Muller Martini on Monday, Thursday and Friday respectively.

The tailender goes to FESPA Fabric, as it rebrands at FESPA Textile 2016 to reflect the fast-expanding, multi-application textile sector for Amsterdam show at the RAI next March (in the FESPA Newsroom and also among the headlines on Tuesday.

That’s all from me until next time,

My best regards,

Mike Hilton

About ValuePublishing.001

In eigener Sache: Unser neues Angebot — Teil 1: “Was? Wie? Warum!”

Gemäß den Erkenntnissen aus ihrem “Gipfeltreffen” in Mainz haben Michael Seidl und Andreas Weber ein neues Angebot entwickelt: ValuePublishing — Die nachhaltige Inszenierung von Fachkommunikation für Print, Publishing, visuelle Kommunikation und Multichannel. — InterMedial + InterKultuell + InterkreAktiv!

 „Wir müssen verstärkt über alle Medienkanäle hinweg unsere unterschiedlichen Expertisen, Meinungen und relevante Botschaften zusammenführen. Print profitiert dabei von Online/Social. Und umgekehrt.“ —Michael Seidl

„Unser Ziel ist es nicht nur hohe Reichweiten aufzubauen, sondern Interaktionen herbeizuführen. Dies beflügelt den Kommunikationsmix sowie das Lesererlebnis gleichermaßen und führen SOFORT zum Erfolg.“ —Andreas Weber

Ob Technologieentwickler, Papierhersteller, Dienstleistungsbetrieb oder Kommunikationstreibender: Alle sitzen in einem Boot bei stürmischer See. 

Das Tempo wird höher, der Umgang mit Innovationen wird immer komplexer. Um im Bild zu bleiben: Unternehmen haben zusehends Probleme, den Kommunikations-Kurs zu halten und den sicheren Hafen (sprich die Kunden) zu erreichen. 

Die bangen Fragen: 

  1. Wer bringt Licht ins Dunkel?
  2. Wer filtert das Wichtige und Relevante heraus?
  3. Wer bringt alle Beteiligten zusammen?
  4. Wer stellt den Kontext her zwischen technisch Machbarem und veränderten Anforderungen im Markt?

Gute Fragen. — Beste Antwort:
WIR! 

Wir, dass sind Michael Seidl, EMG/Wien, und Andreas Weber, Value Communication/Mainz, ausgewiesene und renommierte Experten für Fachkommunikation. Mit der Spezialisierung auf Print, Publishing, Visuelle Kommunikation und Multichannel.

About ValuePublishing.016

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 26 October 2015

Welcome to another week of news highlights with Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 23 October, which this week examines the merits and demands of meaningful Environmental Awards for printers. Also a reminder about the best practice guide, ‘Optimised Paper Handling and Logistics’ which will shortly be released in an Alpha version for open industry comment. You can also apply to take part or to comment! You’ll find the article and links for that in Online Features Chapter 01.

News this week began with Fusion Office Automation in the Eastern Cape taking over responsibility for Ricoh’s Port Elizabeth branch and the territory. We have articles relating to the upcoming London Calling Duplo event from 3 – 4 November (Monday); InPrint 2015 in Munich from 10 – 12 November with Heidelberg’s participation with full colour 4D printing; ITMA in Milan with Mimaki from 12 – 10 November; SGIA and Kornit Digital from 4 – 6 November; EFI Connect Worldwide Users’ Conference, 19 – 22 January with Infotrends; and Ricoh at drupa 2016 from 31 May to 10 June (all on Tuesday).

Wednesday saw EFI take the lead with record Q3 results, following completion of the acquisitions of Reggiani and Matan on 1 July, which are now being quickly integrated into EFI’s product lines and offerings; while on Thursday, Inca Digital announced the launch of its new X-series large-format inkjet press range. As our headline says: You can now drive the new Inca Digital X3!

On Friday, leading London print house Park Communications continued its major investment programme with a 6-colour B1 KBA Rapida 106 with integral coating, following purchases earlier this year of a HP Indigo 7800 digital press and Kalmar mailing equipment with mail matching software. The new press will be commissioned early in the New Year. Other notable sales this week include the UK’s first Low Energy UV installation from Heidelberg with a Speedmaster XL 75-4 LE-UV press complete with Inpress Colour Control for Wincanton Print; while Germany’s Medienhaus Plump reported on its recent Muller Martini Pantera perfect binder (Wednesday). Backtracking to Monday, KBA announced the installation of a new eight-colour Rapida 106 at Litografia e Imprenta LiL in the Costa Rican capital, San Jose, for school textbooks and education publications; and Manroland Web has relocated a 48-page Lithoman with extensive upgrades at WKS Group in Essen, Germany. Thursday saw Muller Martini again, this time reporting on Frey Plus, a leading German direct mail firm based inUlm, in Southern Germany, which was first company in the world to commission the Muller Martini MailLiner.

You will find other new kit and software releases and more news if you scroll down carefully.

The tailender is not strictly print-related, but it does involve one of the world’s leading paper makers wearing one of its other hats: UPM has started field tests of wood-based diesel fuel in Helsinki region bus traffic with VTT and HSL, supported by St1, Volvo and Transdev… Biodiesel finally becomes a commercial reality! You’ll find this in Thursday’s headlines.

That’s all from me until next time,

My best regards,

Mike Hilton

Graphic Repro On-line News Review from 05 October 2015

Welcome to another roundup of news highlights and Laurel Brunner’s Verdigris Blog for Friday 02 October, which this week highlights the fact that Ricoh, one of the biggest players in the graphic arts market, has maintained its place on the DJSI World Index for the third year running. They are considered the gold standard for sustainability and they are strict, with external audits, so they matter. Please don’t skip it. You’ll also find the official announcement from Ricoh South Africa in Thursday’s headlines. On Monday, Flint Group announced the publication of its Sustainability Report which you can download as a PDF. You will also find news from UPM and the Finnish Environment Institute on Wednesday.

News from Messe Düsseldorf in our drupa Newsroom this week, in both English and German, for drupa innovation park 2016: the heartbeat of innovation, where few areas at drupa 2016 (31 May to 10 June) will be so packed with innovations as Hall 7.0 — the home of the drupa innovation park in six themed areas. Please don’t miss it. 

There are new additions in Online Features Chapter 07 from Gallus; and from Adare with Esko; and also in the FESPA Newsroom for FESPA Eurasia which takes place from 10 – 13 December, in Istanbul.

News this week included pre-show announcements for WAN-IFRA and the World Publishing Conference in Hamburg, which opens its doors today, until Wednesday (5 – 7 October), with Kodak leading the headlines on Monday with its show focus, while Agfa Graphics provided more news on its showings on Thursday. There are pre-show announcements from Sawgrass for C!Print in Madrid this week; and Kornit Digital for ITMA in Milan in November. A couple related to InPrint in Munich in November also appear on Friday.

A large proportion of this week’s news obviously centred around Labelexpo which opened on Tuesday in Brussels. Gallus led the headlines on the opening day with the official global sales launch of its new DCS 340 digital press for the label printing market, followed by EFI with the first Jetrion 4950LX one-pass LED inkjet label press, and new Packaging Productivity Suite; Domino announced hybrid integration with AB Graphics’ Digicon 3; while MPS also launched its EF Symjet hybrid press integrated with Domino at the Brussels event; followed by HP Indigo, as it showcased a large number of portfolio advancements and continued customer adoption, which demonstrate growing digital market opportunity. Kodak led on Wednesday with its new high-performance Electra Max Thermal Plate which delivers improved performance, and at the same time helps reduce environmental impact; while Xeikon announced its new Fusion concept which it classes as a breakthrough technology, and Sun Chemical displayed new ink ran ges. But there’s so much more if you work through this week’s collection of 43 news items. I don’t have space to highlight them all.

There are numerous new developments (in addition to those announced at Labelexpo), including IFS with a new SmartSlitter from Horizon on Monday; and on Wednesday Ricoh launched an inline SquareBack booklet-making option in collaboration with Watkiss; also X-Rite on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Several key sales and installations include numerous recent successes for HP Indigo, which are included in its Labelexpo show announcement on Tuesday; then on Wednesday and beyond, Heidelberg UK with a Linoprint digital press and CTP at Pinstripe in Birmingham; SPGPrints at Adamtec in Spain; HP Indigo again at Lorge in France; more Linoprint digital from Heidelberg UK at Barclays in Leyton; Onyx software at KL Druck in Germany; and SPGPrints again at RAKO-Etiketten in Germany. We also have a number of Xeikon successes out of Labelexpo lined-up for this coming week.

As a tailender, don’t miss KBA, which led the headlines on Thursday with KBA Report No 47, available now to order or to download as a PDF in multiple languages from the link provided in the article. This latest issue showcases the relevance of print under the motto ‘Products, Practices, Perspectives’.

That’s it until next time. You’ll find so much more if you scroll down carefully.

My best regards,

Mike Hilton
