Adobe has announced the immediate availability of the Enterprise Edition of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, a turnkey set of hosted software services and viewer technology to create, distribute, monetize and analyze digital magazines, newspapers and publications.
With output aimed at Android tablets, including Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab, as well as RIM PlayBook and iOS tablet devices, the Enterprise Edition allows large publishers to implement a custom tablet publishing solution without disrupting existing publishing processes and infrastructure, says David Wadhwani, senior vice president, Creative and Interactive Solutions, Adobe. Today’s news follows the announcement that Adobe Digital Publishing Suite will support both Apple App Store Subscriptions and Google One Pass for magazine and newspaper publishers.
The Enterprise Edition of Digital Publishing Suite allows publishers worldwide to implement a tailored digital publishing solution built on the foundation of Adobe Creative Suite 5 tools that integrate with the Adobe Online Marketing Suite, existing backend editorial publishing platforms and third party subscription systems. A set of enterprise-level services allow publishers to create and distribute visually immersive digital content on a broad set of tablet devices, leverage editorial and advertising analytics to optimize their business and take advantage of commerce models. Publishers can distribute digital editions through their own website, content aggregators or leading mobile marketplaces, including the Apple App Store and Android Market.
Aimed at large publishers, the Enterprise Edition of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite has been adopted by leading publishers worldwide — including Bonnier, Condé Nast, Globo Media Group, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and National Geographic — to bring some of the world’s most iconic titles to tablet devices.
The Enterprise Edition of Digital Publishing Suite is available immediately, with pricing available through a custom quote. For more info for http://www.adobe.com/products/digitalpublishingsuite .
