Technology upgrades yield big commercial profits for Ill. daily

Last year, the Register Star (daily, 59,105; Sunday, 70,942) installed variable web-width formers on its new KBA Colora press and further updated its EAE wNewsNet workflow app, lending to the paper's ability to handle a variety of commercial jobs, according to Production Manager Carey Sydow.
Commercial strength
"Our commercial load has grown very, very strong over the past six months," Sydow said.
...
"We're currently waiting to hear on another big one - a weekly out of Cleveland," Sydow said.
...
"They can accept it or reject it," Sydow explained.
...
"Files actually get dropped into a different folder but they are still soft proofed and then they get sent downstairs where our print shop staff can output them on demand," Sydow said."The bitmaps just sit there and wait until they need to print a job, which is kind of nice."
Next upgrade
The newspaper's next upgrade to the workflow app will take place within the next two months, Sydow said, and will include quite a few changes.
A key upgrade to the latest version is a PDF correction module, which Sydow said will give the Register Star the ability to turn RGB photos into CMYK, rather than requiring staff to redo an RGB photo once it is "caught" by the workflow app - a situation the daily currently encounters several times a week, Sydow said.
The Register Star's upgrade will also include a PDF ad-stitching module to allow the newspaper to continue to have a full PDF for its e-tearsheet solution.
"We have ad-stitching in with our (Saxopress) editorial now, but we never did go live with it because the e-tearsheet software we installed requires a final PDF and we wouldn't have had that."
The GUI for the workflow will also change, Sydow said.
"It's already very simple and we love it, but to see a page history we have to right click and go up to display information in order to see the whole thing," she said.

The press started and stopped several times during the early morning hours and finally got running more than nine hours later around 11 a.m., production manager Carey Sydow said.
