  • Who are John Fowler and Franz Sigg?

    When processing files via Prinergy, in the process plan details/history the names John Fowler and Franz Sigg pop up.

    For example, I'll read:

    "Encountered Postscript Created by John Fowler.Creo"

    Who are these guys?

    Re: Who are John Fowler and Franz Sigg?

    Hi there,

    John Fowler is a Senior Systems Engineer here at Kodak Vancouver - he had a long and illustrious career at Creo - and has been involved in development of Creo products as long as I can remember (I've been here for 11 years).

    I'm not sure who Franz Sigg is - maybe someone in development will have better information. A guess - since Prinergy was originally a joint venture with Heidelberg is that it may be one of their engineers...

    Best regards,
    Lesley

        Hi Dennis,

        On our Burnaby Campus here in Vancouver - there are several buildings - the one where the Prinergy Product & Development team live is called the Willingdon Building - so "Willingdon_Production" is a server that lives in world of Prinergy Product Development

        Responding from the Gilmore building in Vancouver....

          Hi All - well I got the official word from John Fowler himself - he said "Our names show up in Prinergy because that software reports the creator of each PostScript file that it refines. (The creator of any PostScript file is indicated as a standardized DSC comment in the file.) Franz and I hand-coded EPS imposition marks—Franz produced the Kodak Thermal Guide under contract, and I created the Creo Image Control Strip."

          So there you have it
