The GWG AdTicket is an extension of existing Medibel+ AdTicket, conforming 100% with Medibel+ ad content”. “We’ve taken the concepts for Medibel+ job ticket and we matched to AdsML job ticket, creating a truly open format that can be shared and used by as many users globally as possible,” explains Georges.
Medibel+ is involved in the AdsML XMP jobticket work group via de Ghent PDF Workgroup (GWG). The “GWG AdTicket” and the “AdsML AdTicket” created two different AdTickets which are compatible with each other. Medibel+ & AdsML
