Automated page building

Automating page layout for digital distribution and print production

My News 360 Dynamic Edition automates page building through an online interface resulting in camera-ready PDFs or editable Adobe InDesign documents. My News 360 Dynamic Edition drastically increases the possibility for publishers to provide more content in a less restrictive and less expensive manner.

  • Reduces number of Adobe InDesign licenses and staff required to build pages
  • Lets the editorial team focus on providing great content
  • Provides a way to give subscribers a 'publication' even on days print delivery has stopped
  • Provides a means to increase digital editions for more timely news consumption and when production staff might not be available, i.e. Afternoon editions, sports editions after press deadline, COVID specific coverage, breaking news for elections, etc.

Automation at your fingertips

Platform
agnostic

Publishers are not required to utilize the My News 360 CMS for their editorial production in order to use My News 360 Dynamic Editions. Dynamic Edition uses the My News 360 CMS to display, manage, and rank content. How that content gets into the CMS does not matter. Stories, images, and ads can be added into the system by directly using the My News 360 CMS or ingested through third party feeds from a customer's existing editorial system or web CMS. A publisher does not need to switch their editorial workflow to use dynamic editions.

Finalize pages and control output

Some publishers want more control over front pages and sections fronts—and that’s okay! The Dynamic Edition is designed to offer that functionality and flexibility. Any page composed with automated templates can be opened and edited using Adobe InDesign. The system does all the work in placing the content in the same location on the page as seen on-screen. Designers and editors will see significant time-savings and efficiencies in preparing pages for final output when combined with the automation.
