A glimpse at newspapers using electronics full tilt

Newspapers of the 1980s will be edited, designed, and produced totally by electronic systems, Katharine Graham predicted. Speaking to the 53rd annual ANPARI Production Management Conference, Mrs. Graham, chairman of the board of the Washington Post Company, said the latest technological advance in the newspaper industry, "full-page pagination," will revolutionize the design and layout of newspapers in the next 10 years.

Full-page pagination allows editors and newspapers production people to put out a newspaper by manipulating text and art on electronic video display terminals rather than using actual paste-up materials.

Coupled with advances in pagination are new developments in exotic telecommunications hardware and systems that will provide newspapers with satellite delivery and other state-of-the-art communications sy stems.
