MEI releases InPorter 2.0 for K4 Publishing System

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Jenkintown, PA - Managing Editor Inc. (MEI), an Adobe premier development partner and a leading provider of software solutions for the publishing industry, today announced the release of InPorter 2.0. The latest version of MEI's versatile add-on module for the vjoon K4 Publishing System includes support for reading XMP content embedded in files being "InPorted" into the workflow.

InPorter is a server-side utility that streamlines and automates the process of moving content into K4, the leading editorial solution integrating Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy. InPorter handles any kind of object that can be managed in the K4 system, including InCopy articles, InDesign layouts, photos, ads, multimedia and more.

When content arrives in a watched folder, InPorter automatically checks it into the K4 database, applying the default metadata defined for that content type, or using custom metadata read from an XML-based job ticket or, with Version 2.0, from embedded XMP. The content is immediately ready to proceed through its normal K4 workflow.

XMP is an Adobe-developed labeling technology that makes it possible to embed descriptive metadata into a file. It is designed to provide desktop applications and back-end publishing systems with a simple, standards-based means to share meaningful information about a file for efficient content management.

InPorter 2.0 has been optimized for sites working with XMP, a core component of several publishing formats such as Photoshop files, PDFs, InDesign documents and Adobe Illustrator content. This new compatibility also enhances automated data exchange between K4 and XMP-capable digital asset management systems.

"Some of a file's most important information can be found in its XMP," said Linda Bruce, vice president of enterprise sales at MEI. "Being able to bring that detail into K4 automatically along with the asset provides InPorter users with an incredibly streamlined workflow and huge time savings."

MEI representatives will be available for demos and discussion at the 2010 Publishing Business Conference and Expo, March 8-10 in New York. Visit Booth 305 to see InPorter 2.0 and MEI's other industry-leading solutions in action.

InPorter 2.0 is available now. It is compatible with K4 version 5.9 and Adobe CS3 and CS4.
