NewsWay Production Workflow at Dow Jones Plants

By: E&P Staff Dow Jones & Co. will use ProImage's NewsWay system to distribute newspaper and commercial pages for 17 U.S. printing plants and two international centers, in Europe and Asia.

Dow Jones will use the browser-based NewsWay solution to distribute, track, and deliver pages and page components for Dow Jones' print publications, including The Wall Street Journal.

The international centers will be the first to come online with the new system, which will initially accept pages from Dow Jones' current distribution system. The new system will be able to receive and distribute PDFX-1A pages, create Edition Plans, provide the logic to rename the pages to the specification required by printing plants, and burn different sets of furniture needed for the various remote plants. It also will provide production tracking, job scheduling, soft-viewing, with automated and intelligent workflow and transmission management.
