We just presented a webinar about our Silicon Designer for AEM software, and the recording is below.

Digital asset management in a nutshell

Digital Asset Management (DAM) has become an essential component of creative workflows. DAM software, such as AEM Assets (the asset management component of Adobe Experience Manager), gives organizations a central location to manage graphic and content elements critical to marketing communications. Assets can be versioned, and reviewed / approved for compliance and brand guidelines, tagged with metadata for efficient search and navigation, and rendered in different formats for efficient multi-channel publishing.

We just had a webinar about how designers prepare templates for online editing, and the recording is below.

It was great to get the designers' perspective, so we invited two of the best designers on the planet to share their point of view: Greg Wasmuth of CoCreators Group and Scott Citron from Scott Citron Design.

Collaborative Authoring with Adobe InDesign

We just presented a webinar on the topic of "Editing InDesign Documents Online," and it provides a summary of why you would edit InDesign documents online, along with demonstrations of how you can do so, through an online interface with our Silicon Designer product. Here's the webinar:

Most of the content about the "why" was created by the great Jeff Seal, a few years ago. It is truly timeless. The Silicon Designer product, however, doesn't sit still. It meets the challenges of scaling collaborative design, offering ever-greater capabilities with each passing year.

In preparing the webinar, I noticed that Jeff had used the title "How to Share InDesign Files" for his presentation, and I think that's a great way of looking at it.

Adobe InDesign is the tool of choice for creating high-quality print-ready documents. These days, nearly every magazine or high-end printed piece was created with InDesign.

In the cold winter of 2008, we were approached by a technical lead at Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines ("RCCL"), regarding the topic of cruise booklet production. Sajan Chacko had seen our Silicon Paginator product (based on Adobe InDesign Server), and he inquired by email:

"Based on an XML stream, can it do the following:
1. Get data from external file-paths specified in XML
2. Reference external sources such as HTML, RTF, or Word?"

This is the sort of inquiry that brightens our days here at Silicon Publishing. We have lived and breathed this sort of technical work for decades, and whatever the year, we're using the very best technology to make it even more efficient. 2008 was no exception. I could tell immediately that Sajan would be happy with InDesign Server as a solution, because we had already mastered the art of just this sort of workflow.
