:Arkitex Eversify captures content from any content system in use today at the newspaper. The data is analysed and automatically processed (in the style of a newsfeed) through Agfa Graphics intelligent content mapping and template technology to produce an issue (both portrait and landscape variants) that is ready to preview and edit if necessary. The final publication is delivered to any hosting environment to be accessed by the associated brand-specific or individual reader application. Within the App, that also supports dynamic content, the reader is offered a highly interactive and robust reading experience. As far as the production process is concerned, :Arkitex Eversify uses the newspapers existing methods for print production. So there is minimal effort yet publishers have complete control over the look and feel, which is important for branding purposes.
