Abstract [en]

During the years 1970-1973, an ambitious research project, the Computer Graphics Project (CGP), was carried out at the laboratory of Information Processing Science at the Helsinki University of Technology. The initial objective of the project was to develop application oriented system solutions for the emerging computer graphics technology, but the activities were soon focused on the problems of producing newspaper text, advertisement, and complete pages using interactive computer graphics. The project and its commercial spin-off, Typlan Systems Projects Oy Ab, as well as the BUNPAPS continuation project 1973-1975 at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, created a number of innovative, pioneering solutions for computer aided newspaper production, laying the foundation for the digitalization of media production in the 1980’es. This paper describes the ideas, research, innovations, and products generated by the members of these groups in the period 1970-1975.
