The solution in brief


The MISTRAL web-based production management system is both the common electronic submission interface for production assembly and the interface for subsequent production tracking, administration, correction, approval and printing. The system allows all parties involved in the development of "publishable material" to have a single, common electronic interface to obtain information on the development of the project in real time and from any remote location. JDF compliance is a central component to MISTRAL, allowing tasks such as advanced job ticketing, imposition, and preflighting.

The ability to integrate vjoon K4 with MISTRAL web-based production management system will give the publishing industry a powerful production automation tool. As a result publishers will be able to handle the demands of multiple edition editorial production while managing planning, soft proofing, and multi-site print production automatically and to high quality standards within a single and seamless workflow.

“This alliance with vjoon reinforces our commitment to the continued development of our open standard technologies to give users across a wide range of production specialisations even higher levels of functionality and flexibility within a highly streamlined workflow.”
