It's one thing to keep up with the lions and tigers and bears housed at San Diego's famous zoo, but for the city's Zoological Society, ZOONOOZ magazine is similarly stretching its legs by converting to computer-to-plate (CTP) production. Thomas Scharf, editor of the 75-year-old membership-based magazine, says that while ZOONOOZ still works with film, the conversion to a complete digital workflow is on the horizon. Scharf estimates that if CTP continually maintains good color control, as it has during preliminary press tests, full digitization may come as early as summer. "The future with [CTP] is going to be good," Scharf confidently quips.
