Vjoon, a leading maker of cross-media publishing platforms and a global Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) reseller, announced on July 26th that vjoon K4 now supports the new interface to Adobe DPS Folio Producer services. This constitutes an unprecedented level of integration that boosts efficiency by enabling tablet publishers to upload their Folio files after planning, managing and organizing digital content in vjoon K4. This allows publishers to fully exploit the Adobe Folio Producer’s extensive feature set and eliminates the need for using Adobe Content Bundler, along with all its limitations.
“The new interface to the Folio Producer is a tremendous asset for customers because it integrates publishing systems such as vjoon K4 with the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite far more efficiently than anything that came before,” said Zeke Koch, Senior Director of Product Management for Digital Publishing at Adobe. “With recently released groundbreaking new features and automated functions, publishers now have access to one of the most innovative and efficient tablet publishing workflows on the market today.”
“vjoon customers such as Condé Nast, Credit Suisse, National Geographic and Red Bull are among the first and most successful users of the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite worldwide,” says Andreas Schrader, CEO of vjoon. “In a joint effort with Adobe, we have now developed the tools our customers need to continue optimizing their publishing workflows, thereby freeing up time and resources that they can devote to creating premium-quality print and digital publications.”
From day one, vjoon played a big part in developing this interface, so it benefited from the valuable experience gained with vjoon K4 customers’ many successful tablet publications. As a result, customers can now make full use of Adobe Folio Producer’s functionality. For example, push notifications, which let users determine when subscribers are alerted to a new edition, can now be used for integrated publications. Publishers can also pinpoint through vjoon K4 precisely which content of the published edition readers can share with friends and business partners via Web Viewer.
vjoon K4’s extended set of automated functions are a boon to the tablet publishing workflow. vjoon K4 uploads all content to Adobe Folio Producer, directly and automatically at the touch of a button. Automated functions also enable agencies to deliver individual ads in the required format, allowing the publisher to integrate them with their content and then upload them along with the layout for the entire magazine.
As the company recently announced, the new version of vjoon K4 also supports Adobe Creative Suite® 6. This release is available now and being tested by many integration partners.
