New vjoon K4 Release Featuring Optimized Web Clients and Workspaces

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Version 6.8 of the vjoon K4® cross-media publishing platform optimizes the user experience in K4 Overview™ and K4 Web Portal™. Further new features facilitate day-to-day tasks and accelerate publishing processes.

Hamburg - vjoon, a leading global provider of software solutions for managment of digital content, has released the new version 6.8 R1 of its vjoon K4 cross-media publishing platform. An optimized user experience and an extended set of automated processes feature prominently in this release. The central web clients K4 Overview and K4 Web Portal now offer much simpler, streamlined user interfaces and handling as well as several new features. Added workspace management capability now enables any user of any client to work in the same familiar environment. Workspaces may also be tailored to the needs of a group, enabling the collective to get the job done with utmost efficiency. Version 6.8 is also compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud. Visitors to the New York vjoonity have already seen the new version with all the added features in action.

Optimized web clients and workspaces
The technology, interface and functions of K4 Overview and K4 Web Portal (including the K4 Web Editor™ plug-in) were revamped with a user-centric focus. The most frequently used functions, based on user feedback and usability tests, have been reorganized to make handling even more convenient and intuitive, thereby accelerating publishing processes. A main objective of version 6.8 is to appreciably improve the user experience, as underscored by its new workspace management capability. Screen elements, searches and color assignments tailored to suit the user’s personal needs are now stored for later recall. When the software is launched again, for example, on another computer, these personalized settings are immediately loaded and the GUI appears with the accustomed layout. The editor-in-chief, each contributor, the project manager and even entire groups can not only work in K4 clients for Adobe InDesign and InCopy at any location with panels and tools configured to suit their needs, they can now also access their familiar user interfaces, tailored to suit their needs, in K4 web clients.

The new workspace management function also offers adjustable settings for sizing the layout thumbnails in K4 Overview. They are freely scalable as of version 6.8, so each user can determine a preset size for viewing layout thumbnails. What’s more, PDF versions of entire editions, and not just individual pages and layouts, may be generated at the touch of a button, either in low quality for quick review or as a full-fledged printable PDF.

New features at a glance:

- Optimized usability and an extended feature set in K4 Overview and K4 Web Portal
- Workspace management in K4 Overview and K4 Web Portal
- PDF export of entire issues or layout sequences from K4 Overview
- Scalable thumbnail view in K4 Overview
- Full text search with detailed references
- Improved picture handling (quick and effortless replacement of one for another, for instance, to get a different image or higher resolution)
- Compatible with Adobe Creative Cloud
