New York, NY (PRWEB) January 20, 2005
TypÃ©fi Systems, Inc. a 4-year old developer of intelligent, scalable, cross-media publishing solutions has announced the release of version 2 of its flagship TypÃ©fi Publishing System (TPS). TPSv2 provides a breakthrough in ease-of-use for automated publishing solutions in addition to providing robust workflow management and content management capabilities.
TPSv2 uses a unique intelligent layout technology to capture design and presentation rules and then automatically layout any combination of text, tables, illustrations, photographs and various other elements at speeds that are thousands of times faster than a manual process. Producing up to 15,000 richly-formatted pages per hour, TPSv2 can generate print-ready documents in just a fraction of the time it would take to achieve the same result manually. Furthermore, the systemÂs background intelligence uses the same design techniques employed by existing desktop operators to achieve high quality, balanced designs that appear to be crafted by hand.
Developing the design rules for TPS couldnÂt be simpler. Using a familiar desktop publishing package such as AdobeÂ® InDesignÂ®, graphic designers can apply their own rules to any template in a matter of minutes. And once those intelligent templates have been developed, they can be used over and over again, no matter how many times the content changes. With patent-pending layout technology that required no additional programming or scripting, TPSv2 can be easily used by existing designers and compositors to its full extent with little additional training or specialized knowledge.
ÂTypÃ©fi has clearly set a new standard for ease-of-use for automated publishing,Â said Thad McIlroy, an electronic publishing analyst and author, and president of the consulting firm Arcadia House. ÂThe improvements theyÂve made in usability over the established solutions simply canÂt be overstated Â theyÂve literally turned automated publishing into childÂs play!Â
In addition to its automated publishing capabilities TPS provides robust, XML-compliant server-based content management capabilities that are tightly integrated into desktop software tools such as MicrosoftÂ® WordÂ® and AdobeÂ® InDesignÂ®. All content, including text, illustrations, photographs, tables, and more can be easily managed and approved via a centralized server-based interface. Full Âround-trippingÂ makes it easy to ensure that content edits are synchronized across the project whether the edit is made in the original Word document or the final layout. The round-trip capabilities also ensure corrections to the final pages in the output document are never lost, facilitating content reuse across media and multiple print editions.
TPSÂs advanced Web console makes it simple to manage workflows that involve both internal and external staff. Managers can see at a glance where each part of the project stands, and team members are free to access and update their piece as and when they need to.
ÂWith version 2 of TPS, we have delivered a system that provides a very compelling value proposition,Â said Steve Huff, CEO of TypÃ©fi. ÂWhether the need is to publish books or documents such as annual reports, technical manuals, prospectuses, policies and procedures, TPS can streamline the publishing processes and deliver a solid return-on-investment. As a result, weÂre proud to have already established strategic relationships with some of the largest publishers in the world which we believe will drive strong adoption of TPSv2 during the first half of 2005.Â
Underlying the industry-leading intelligence of TPS is the standards-based TypÃ©fi Technology Platform that ensures easy integration into any IT environment, both now and in the future. With support for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems, XML compliance throughout, and full support for internal and external users, TPS can operate across platforms and existing user workflows. It can be implemented in a matter of minutes for standalone workgroups, and is easily integrated into any enterprise-wide publishing solution.
ÂTPS is an open, extensible software system for automated publishing,Â said Stephen OÂBrien, founder and CTO of TypÃ©fi. ÂWe made a significant investment in the TypÃ©fi Technology Platform to ensure that TPS was built on industry-standard software platforms, with deep support for XML providing seamless integration with leading applications such as AdobeÂ® InDesignÂ® and MicrosoftÂ® WordÂ®. TPSv2 is the platform on which we can rapidly build solutions for the automated publishing of virtually any kind of document.Â
