WoodWing and Adobe DPS Integration – The Next Wave in Digital PublishingPosted: February 2, 2012
Since the announcement of the Digital Publishing Alliance between WoodWing and Adobe in October last year, WoodWing engineers have been working closely together with the DPS development team at Adobe to create the best possible digital publishing solution.
Some days ago, Adobe released Sprint 18 of its DPS solution, while WoodWing made available version 7.5.1 of its multi-channel publishing system Enterprise. This marked another significant step forward on the path to sync the features of WoodWing´s Digital Publishing Tools and the Adobe Content Viewer. This latest release now enables WoodWing customers to create new editions of their digital publications that contain almost all the exciting features previously offered by WoodWing´s own readers.
Particularly noteworthy are the options for nested interactivity Adobe´s Content Viewer is now able to display. Designers can combine hotspots with web, audio and video elements as well as slideshows, dossier links, and even widgets. Widgets are HTML5 objects enabling an even higher degree of interactivity; they can be easily integrated in the page layouts of tablet publications. In addition, hotspots can be created in scrollable areas and, vice versa, scrollable areas can be defined in hotspots. Even hotspots on hotspots are possible.
All these features are essential to create an exciting reading experience and to easily structure even comprehensive content in a clear and reader-friendly manner.
