Apple will exhibit at Newstec, the UK's only trade show for the newspaper-publishing industry.

Newstec takes place at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel from May 21-23. Apple's booth will focus on its next-generation operation system, Mac OS X, and the application's ability to run applications and workgroups over large networks. Apple also plans to demonstrate OS X's accurate colour management – courtesy of ColorSync.

Despite recent US lay-offs in its iServices team, Apple's Internet Consulting Service (AICS) will be represented in force at the show. This group offers consulting and systems-integration services based on OS X. It recently helped the BBC create its online news service.

The group will be demonstrating Apple's Multimedia Content Management Framework. This has been designed so that editors can create content and have it stored and published to many formats, including a variety of online devices.

AO International, Automatrix, FileWave, FujiFilm and TypeMaker will also be at Apple's stand exhibiting their solutions for newspaper production.
