Cross Media


The Cross Media sub committee was formed to investigate the changes in the cross media publishing world and the challenges and opportunities related to it.

Current Activities

  • Our current focus is on the use of PDF in new media (smart phones, tablets, etc..) to determine how the GWG can standardize and improve the processes for the use of PDF in these media.
  • Additionally, we are working with other international groups to define and implement new cross media standards, processes and formats.`
  • Creation of publications:
