vjoon K4 Provides a Quick Start into Tablet Publishing

Press release from the issuing company

vjoon has rolled out its offering of affordable vjoon K4 Digital Publishing Packages (DPP) in a move timed to coincide with the release of the Professional Edition of Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite (DPS). Tailored precisely to fit the special requirements of magazine app publishing, these packages comprise a full-fledged Cross-Media Publishing Platform including database as well as Adobe InDesign Server to enhance performance for layout and design editing and automated workflows. Beyond that, these quick-start kits contain K4 Overview Advanced, an application that enables the head of production or project managers to monitor the publishing workflow on the fly in a browser. The new version 6.4 of vjoon K4 is also available in May. Featuring a host of new capabilities, it is compatible with Adobe Creative Suite 5.5.

"Large publishing houses and media companies such as Condé Nast and Red Bull's famous lifestyle magazine The Red Bulletin have deployed vjoon K4 and Adobe DPS with great success," notes vjoon's Director of Business Development Holger Kraemer. "With our vjoon K4 Digital Publishing Packages and the Professional Edition of Adobe DPS, smaller publishing houses and corporate publisher now have a turnkey solution enabling professional-grade publishing and distribution of digital contents."

Benefits for publishing houses and corporate publishers

Adobe Digital Publishing Suite already contains a wide range of functions and services for publishing houses and corporate publishers. Nonetheless, even a single publishing project involving just a small team can quickly become very elaborate. Such complexity can cost precious time when editors lose sight of the big picture. vjoon K4 and Adobe DPS have been integrated specifically to resolve this issue. Nothing less than a professional publishing system will do to steer workflows, automate time-consuming routine tasks, afford simultaneous access to documents, and manage layouts, texts, pictures, and videos in a single database. vjoon K4 enhances the creative tools provided by Adobe Creative Suite and leverages industry standards to ensure a smooth transition to Adobe DPS services.

"Adobe DPS and the .folio format are fast becoming the standard for publishing digital contents," notes Carsten Althaber, Director of Marketing at vjoon. "Integrated with vjoon K4, they offer a unique array of professional publishing tools as well as delivery, e-commerce and analysis services to publishing houses and corporate publishers."
