Friday, October 01, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

San Francisco - At this year's GraphExpo in Chicago, representatives of Silicon Publishing, Inc. (www.siliconpublishing.com) will be previewing the latest version of Silicon Designer, their advanced editor for any type of online, mobile or print document. This includes Web-to-print jobs in the latest version of Adobe Scene7 (5.0), Adobe InDesign CS5 Server and Xerox XMPie Person alEffect 5.0.

Silicon Designer offers real-time preview and a choice of template-based or WYSIWYG editing, including compatibility with Adobe's new FXG 2.0 specification.

Silicon Designer allows businesses to add custom Web-to-Print services to their storefronts, even on mobile devices such as the Apple iPhone and iPad. An HTML5 interface is also under development.

"Our development partners have powerful Web-to-print and variable data print workflows, but they don't always have the editing capabilities their customers need," said CEO Max Dunn. "Silicon Designer is the answer. It provides an amazing level of visualization and control - when and where it's needed.

Enhancing Web to Print
Silicon Designer has been integrated into many online print-ordering systems, including business-to-consumer and business-to-business Web applications. It offers real-time editing and proofing of any document, with rendition fidelity that allows users to see exactly what print output will look like. This happens as content is edited - without waiting for proofs from the server.

For consumer applications, Silicon Designer offers a highly configurable user interface. This ranges from easy, form-based, guided authoring to advanced interactive editing features - such as drag-and-drop placement of graphics, inline text editing, transparency effects and other "power user" features.

For business and marketing applications, Silicon Designer provides a full range of permissions-based content editing. Authorized users can customize documents and templates for regional or variable data printing, while preserving overall brand design.
