Jenkintown, PA (July 27, 2012) Managing Editor Inc. (MEI) today announced that the vjoon K4 Cross-Media Publishing Platform now supports the new interface to Adobe® Digital Publishing Suite™ 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 integration also allows publishers to fully exploit the Adobe Folio Producer’s extensive feature set and eliminates the need to use Adobe Content Bundler. vjoon K4 is a product of vjoon GmbH of Hamburg, Germany, and MEI is the exclusive distributor of the software in the Americas.
“The new interface to the Folio Producer brings vjoon K4 together with the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite brilliantly, allowing our customers to reach even higher levels of productivity,” said Craig Roth, senior vice president of sales at MEI. “MEI customers are among the first and most successful Adobe DPS users worldwide. And now, with tight integration with vjoon K4, they are able to combine the absolute best solutions available for optimizing cross-media publishing workflows and creating rich, immersive tablet content.”
From Day 1, vjoon played a big part in developing this interface, so the API benefited from the valuable experience gained with vjoon K4 customers’ many successful tablet publications. As a result, vjoon K4 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 also helps streamline tablet publishing workflows. 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 required formats, allowing publishers to integrate them with their content and then upload them along with the layout for the entire magazine.
In addition, vjoon recently announced that the new version of vjoon K4 also supports Adobe Creative Suite® 6. This release is available now and being tested by many integration partners.
