Remote Control Atomik 3.0


Remote Control Atomik 3.0

New version of TCP-IP XT enables complete remote control of Atomik 3.0 for
automated QuarkXPress-to-XML conversion

LONDON AND ZOETERMEER – February 25, 2002 – Easypress Technologies and
Techno Design today announced support for Atomik 3.0 Developer Edition in
the new version of Techno Design’s remote control automation software,
TCP-IP XT 1.4.

TCP-IP XT is a platform, location, database and development environment
independent scripting command set that supports over 320 commands for
controlling the QuarkXPress user-interface functionality through a remote
TCP/IP connection. The new version includes commands for controlling Atomik
3.0 Developer Edition, thus enabling automated QuarkXPress-to-XML
conversion, remotely, over any TCP/IP connection. Once in XML, content can
easily be published to Web, stored in a database, a content management
system, licensed for additional revenue and more.

“It seemed an obvious thing to do, using TCP-IP XT to drive Atomik 3.0, as
both products are extremely complementary,” said Paul Vallance, Product
Manager for Techno Design’s database publishing solutions. “Validated XML
export will become the standard method of storing and repurposing
information from QuarkXPress, so why not use TCP-IP XT to make this
functionality available over any TCP/IP connection bringing further
integration possibilities and remote control.”

Closer Integration
Atomik 3.0 Developer Edition contains all the functionality of the standard
version of Atomik 3.0 plus tighter third party integration and automation

“The new support for Atomik 3.0 in TCP-IP XT makes a powerful solution for
publishers seeking automated QuarkXPress-to-XML conversion,” said Gavin
Drake, Easypress Technologies Marketing Manager. “Customers, developers and
system integrators now have an additional method of integrating Atomik 3.0
into larger print and web workflows, in this case remote controlling Atomik
using TCP/IP commands.

The Developer Edition of Atomik supports automation and integration through
AppleScript, AutoPilot XT ( and the XTension-to-XTension call
interface. Support for these technologies and products enables Atomik 3.0
Developer Edition to become an integral component of editorial and workflow
systems as well as other 3rd party applications. TCP-IP XT 1.4 is the first
3rd party XTensions software to take advantage of XTension-to-XTension call
interface only weeks after Atomik 3.0 was launched at Seybold New York.
