SAXoTECH plans to use next month’s America East event as the forum to highlight the newest major upgrades to its SAXoPRESS Publishing System and Publicus Online Publishing System.
SAXoPRESS R5 will be the centerpiece of the company’s forthcoming presence at the show. It’s a multiplatform cross media editorial system integrated with QuarkXPress. Shipping now, new features in SAXoPRESS R5 include: Integration between SAXoPRESS and QuarkCopyDesk SE. Ability to manage and store any type of file in the SAXoPRESS Asset Management Module, and the ability to publish multimedia objects directly to Web sites. A major upgrade to the Planning Module which presents a revised set of functions and new user interface for newsroom planning.
Publicus is SAXoTECH’s database-driven Internet content management and production system. The new version, Publicus R5, is shipping now. Publicus R5 gains a variety of new enhancements including: A completely redesigned Web browser-based user interface. Improvements to the Asset Management system, including full integration between Publicus and SAXoPRESS. A new Print Advertising add-on module that provides print publishers with automated PDF creation and proofreading of high-res display advertising based on QuarkXPress templates. Accepted PDF proofs are then used to generate high-res EPS files that are saved to the publisher’s network for print production. A new Net Guest Module add-on, which enables users to create online interviews of celebrities or local officials driven by Web browser forums that the user community can utilize to submit questions to the guest celebrity.
America East Newspaper Operations and Technology Conference comes to the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pa., from March 25 to 28. Look for SAXoTECH to be demonstrating at its booth, number 63, located in the Great American Hall.
