More than a decade into the “CTP revolution,” many of the promises of digital workflow have yet to be fulfilled.

Over the past 10 years, visible light and thermal CTP acceptance by printers has moved at a snail's pace. Fewer than 4,500 individual CTP systems exist worldwide, representing less than two percent of 229,000 printing businesses, reports Citiplate (www.citiplate.com). But because CTP technology is not a complete solution, a digital workflow must also include copy-dot and imposition software, plates and platesetters.
