Cascade policy


Cascading PCs and Macs

Most newspapers have a policy of cascading PCs and Macs down through their titles within their editorial, production and advertising departments

The purchase of new machines allows key areas to be updated with Macs and PCs, which may only be a couple of years old. This cascading of machines allows an organization to target those areas which need the most processing power for production.

It’s common practice for the most powerful Macs/PCs to be placed in the Graphic/Image make up areas and for their predecessors to be cascaded down to Editorial where page make-up and sub editing functions are not as memory hungry.

Colour Splash Recommendation
We would recommend implementing a cascading policy, which includes a minimum machine specification that is reviewed annually.
