Content Production to Meet the Needs of Multi-faceted Journalists Print E-mail
On-the-go journalists equipped with the latest portable technology devices are only as productive as the systems available to them to organize the wide range of content coming together in media organizations today. Research, background and reference information take on many forms – including audio and video files, scanned documents, photos, spreadsheets or other file types – and provide just the kind of content for rich media experiences that online audiences are looking for. And news organizations stand to become infinitely more resourceful with so many forms of content in their archives.

SAXOTECH Editorial provides content producers and editors with a robust platform and high-performance tools to create, manage, edit, and archive digital media for Web and print publishing. Whether your stories are submitted by email, file transfer, wire services, or the web, your content flows into a collaborative environment for fast and accurate handling.

STORY CREATION

  • FEATURE-RICH WRITING TOOLS.
    Create original stories using the SAXOTECH text editor, or choose our deep integration with either Adobe inCopy® or Quark CopyDesk®.
  • PORTABLE STORIES.
    Check stories out of the system and take them with you to continue work on airplanes or other environments where network connectivity is not an option. Then check stories back in later.
  • WEB-BASED STORY CREATION.
    Write stories in a standard Web browser when used with SAXOTECH Online, or turn on user-generated content functionality to extend privileges to citizen journalists.

IMAGE AND MULTIMEDIA MANAGEMENT

Digital photography, video and audio assets come together in SAXOTECH Editorial.

  • INSTANT ACCESS, SYSTEM-WIDE.
    Provide system-wide search and visibility to all images, whether they have just been uploaded by a photographer in the field, or from third party wire services. Simply drag and drop to attach to online or print stories.
  • IMAGE COLLABORATION.
    Enable users to comment with notes about each image, store key detail points, or collaborate on captions to ensure accuracy.
  • PHOTO HISTORY.
    Determine immediately if a photo has been included on a page before, when was it published, on what page, and why.
  • IMAGE TYPE CONVERSION.
    Convert colors of original RGB images to CMYK or grayscale automatically.

RECEIVING CONTENT

While networked contributors and editors directly input stories and digital content directly into SAXOTECH Editorial, remote workers and third parties have multiple options to submit their content.

  • E-RECEIVER.
    Email stories or images directly into the system and use automatic routing to streamline delivery to people, workgroups or departments.
  • FILE TRANSFER.
    Move one or many files in a single action, manually or automatically, using file transfer protocol.
  • WIRE FEEDS.
    Share incoming feeds with all users, providing quick and easy access to stories and photos. The system preserves a copy of the original images and stories for future reference.
