Press release from the issuing company

Dynamic Imaging Meets Web-to-Print

CHICAGO, IL – LiquidPixels, Inc., the world leader in dynamic imaging and content delivery, today announced its partnership with Silicon Publishing, the leader in Adobe InDesign Server automation and web-to-print. The two companies will offer a combined solution for online editing that provides robust on-canvas editing within web browsers, efficient dynamic server-side imaging, powerful product visualization, and high-quality print output.

LiquidPixels' LiquiFire Operating System (OS) offers true dynamic imaging that fundamentally re-engineers the way images are processed and delivered on the web. This technology enables precise on-demand imaging for browsers and robust visualization of personalized garments and other dimensional products. It is now offered through integration with the Silicon Designer product, bringing greater imaging efficiency and more powerful visualization. Silicon Designer allows Adobe InDesign documents to be edited through a configurable and customizable user interface and are rendered to high-quality print output.

"We found that combining the two technologies will produce stunning results," said Max Dunn, Silicon Publishing CEO. "We can allow users to see the 2-dimensional images from Silicon Designer editing sessions precisely how they will appear on T-shirts, mugs, or virtually any dimensional product in real time. The dynamic imaging technology of LiquidPixels LiquiFire OS enhances the online editing experience, especially on mobile devices."

Natural Alliance
The two companies happen to have both been founded in the year 2000. While they have much in common, their technology trajectories are fundamentally complementary. LiquidPixels is highly focused on dynamic imaging for the web and emails, while Silicon Publishing is InDesign-centric, focused on typography, text flow, and layout. Because both companies build extensible applications, the integration of Silicon Designer and LiquiFire OS will be easy and straightforward. The images edited in Designer will be served by LiquiFire OS, and the results of 2D editing sessions in Designer will feed LiquiFire Image Chains to preview the exact appearance of personalized products.

"Synergy of dynamic imaging with Silicon Designer showcases the benefits of editing native InDesign documents online," said Marc Spencer, LiquidPixels CTO. "This empowers our customers to further link their Adobe investment with our dynamic imaging solutions."

LiquidPixels is exhibiting now at the Internet Retailer Conference + Exhibition (IRCE). To learn more about the new partnership with Silicon Publishing, stop by booth #735.
