The International Cooperation for the Integration of Processes in Prepress, Press and Postpress (CIP4) has formed several new technical development groups as work begins to further expand the Job Definition Format (JDF).

The Origination and Prepress group will work to resolve issues arising in the stages of a print workflow before the jobs reach the press. The group will be chaired by Koen van de Poel of Agfa (Mortsel, Belgium).

The System Behavior task force has also been promoted to full working group status and renamed to System Behavior and Interoperability. The focus of this group is to clarify the interactions between components of a JDF workflow.
