Apple will be running a series of seminars, including a session on Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther), at London's annual print, visual communications and workflow event, Digital Solutions OnDemand – sponsored by Macworld.

The presentations will take place in the dedicated Apple Theatre on each day of the exhibition that runs from October 21-23 at London ExCeL.

The company will present Mac OS X, including the new features of Panther, at 10.30am each day. The other seminars will look at Apple hardware updates, specifically the PowerMac G5, at 12pm, and Xserve and Xserve RAID at 2.30pm.

Adobe demos

The Acrobat User Forum will present an in-depth look at Adobe Acrobat products in a dedicated theatre at the show. They will show new features in Acrobat 6 that support pre-press, including PDF/X, on 21 October at 2pm, and will examine XML in PDF workflows in the Workflow Theatre on 22 October at 2pm.

Quark will be demonstrating QuarkXPress 6 running natively in Mac OS X, in what is claimed to be the first ever UK showing. Demonstrations will continue over the three days.

Over 170 companies will be represented at the exhibition, which is now in its fifth year, including AGFA, Fujifilm, Creo, Roland, and Genix OnDemand. A full list of exhibitors can be found here.

Show organiser Russell Peacock is predicting over 40 new product launches at the event. He said: "We are extremely pleased that Digital Solutions OnDemand has been chosen as the communications platform for the launch of so many new products. Not only do we see this as confirmation of the show's UK market leading position, but with high pre-registration figures, early indications point to a very successful show ensuring a high level of both visitor and exhibitor satisfaction."
