Details about the Chron's new presses

While the world awaits the first edition of the Chronicle from its new pressroom in Fremont, the trade publication Newspapers & Technology has a story that discusses the capabilities of the new, highly automated presses:
    The northern California site, scheduled to go into operation late last month, is built around three manroland Colorman triplewide presses. The coldset/heatset presses are equipped with software and other systems engineered to allow press crews to quickly shift from one job to another.
The ability to shift from one job to another might mean that the Chron will do more zoning in the future, or that Transcon will be able to print several papers every night.
