Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy Selected by Major U.K. Publisher

Press release from the issuing company

SAN JOSE, Calif., (Feb 13, 2001) (Nasdaq:ADBE)--Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced that The Telegraph Group Ltd., which publishes The Daily Telegraph (circulation 1,030,000) and The Sunday Telegraph (circulation 810,000) in the U.K., plans to use Adobe® InDesign™ and InCopy™ software to publish its daily newspaper. The new system, based on InDesign and InCopy, NewsSpeed 5.0 Editorial Publishing System from Digital Technology International (DTI), will be used by more than 600 people at the Daily Telegraph who expect to see great productivity and design gains. "The publishing solution from Adobe and DTI gives us the best of everything—industry-leading composition and design software matched with proven database technology," said Chris Heath, IT director of Telegraph Group Ltd. "We can manage all elements of production, including text, pictures, media, ads, and archive materials, in an integrated package with a common user interface. The result is that our editors, designers, and production staff can collaborate easily to produce the highest-quality newspapers possible." Deadlines, coupled with last-minute changes, dominate the fast-paced world of daily newspapers, so technology that offers ease-of-use and flexibility is key. Equally important is the ability to produce informative, visually enticing pages that appeal to readers and advertisers alike. After evaluating the leading design-to-publishing systems, The Telegraph Group determined that DTI NewsSpeed 5.0 system with Adobe InDesign and InCopy was the best solution for its demanding publishing environment. "It's a tremendous advantage that Adobe InCopy and Adobe InDesign rely on the same advanced H&J engine," said Alyson Oldham, director of marketing for DTI. "Daily Telegraph writers will see their stories exactly as they will appear in page layout. The tight integration brings considerable efficiencies to publishers and opens up an entirely new level of collaboration between reporters and designers."
