Adobe launches entry-level InDesign-driven iPad publishing system
Adobe has launched Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition (DPS SE) at its Adobe MAX 2011 conference in La. This entry-level form of named publishing system aims to permit freelance designers and small design firms to write interactive content produced with Adobe InDesign CS5.5 software towards the Ipad.
Single Edition enables users to write single-issue content like a sales brochure, highly-visual book, annual report or design portfolio being an iPad application (although not being an Android or Blackberry Playbook application).
In america, each application costs $395 (￡255) to write — and there isn’t any per-download fee just like the Professional and Enterprise Editions. United kingdom prices has not been announced, but DPS SE is anticipated to produce both in the United kingdom and US in November, therefore we ought to know soon.
Adobe has not stated if publishers agreed to its Professional or Enterprise variants from the Digital Publishing Suite may use the only Edition to produce one-off publications — something that might be certain to interest media companies producing free publications for example trade publications as well as for-client projects alongside compensated-for titles.
The announcement, made at Adobe MAX 2011, comes with other Digital Publishing Suite news including a comment that Adobe has cut an offer with cms developer Woodwing to integrate DPS into its digitai publishing system rather of their own Tablet Publishing System.
