Wednesday, September 26, 2001
SAN JOSE, Calif.- Sept. 25, 2001-- Adobe Systems Incorporated, today announced that XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform), a core technology for embedding metadata in files created with Adobe InDesign 2.0, Adobe Illustrator 10 and future Adobe products, was awarded a Seybold "Hot Pick'' by the editors of Seybold Publications. Adobe's XMP technology was recognized in the Cross-Media Publishing category for its innovative framework that enhances workflows so that content can be easily applied between print, Web, eBooks and other media. Additionally, two new solutions developed to work with InDesign and bring greater flexibility and customization to publishing workflows -- TruEdit from Managing Editor and the K4 Publishing System from SoftCare -- were awarded "Hot Picks'' in the Editorial Production Systems category. Seybold "Hot Picks'' are considered by Seybold editors to be the most interesting and innovative technologies and products on display at Seybold San Francisco 2001. "The Hot Picks reflect our vision of where the publishing industry is headed,'' said Patricia Evans, managing editor, Seybold Publications. "Clearly, Adobe's XMP metadata architecture is an important advancement for publishing technology.'' The products honored as Seybold "Hot Picks'' streamline workflows for InDesign publishing workgroups. XMP provides Adobe applications and partners with a common metadata framework that standardizes the creation, processing and interchange of document metadata across publishing workflows. TruEdit is a print production tool that works closely with InDesign and Adobe InCopy(TM) software to create role-based workflows. The K4 Publishing System is a new editorial and production system for magazines that allows different groups to edit and create page layouts concurrently.
