Document Solutions’ Olympic Moment
February 25, 2010
SFU’s Document Solutions has been working with German media partner medienfabrik Gütersloh GmbH to print a daily German-language Olympic newsletter overnight and deliver it to German House at Harbour Centre and at Whistler by 9 am each morning.
The 12-page, four-colour Olympische Momente (Olympic Moments) chronicles the German Olympic team’s events and progress. Each day, German reporters and photographers in Vancouver prepare copy and photos to send to medienfabrik in Germany for final assembly and approval. Document Solutions receives the digital pages by 1:00 am and prints them on a high-speed Xerox iGen3 digital colour press. By 6:00 am, 1,600 high-quality newsletters are ready for delivery.
Raj Nadrajan, director of auxiliary services for SFU, says traditional colour presses wouldn’t have met the Germans’ tight daily timeline.
"Medienfabrik has complimented us and has been very impressed with the quality."
Nadrajan credits the project’s success to his dedicated staff, who were willing to work late shifts throughout the Olympics.
