METAWORKS

Our automatic typesetting software allows quick and easy production of virtually any print media.

Based on this original product, we develop and supply products such as web systems, CMSs (Content Management Systems) and catalog databases to support "one source multi use" of corporate content.

Speedy information usage is becoming increasingly critical in all fields of business. Publishers are no exception. As websites and free papers are now commonly used to collect information, print media such as information magazines must ensure fresh information on a timely basis in order to survive the competition. Against this backdrop, cross media that use print media, the internet and e-books are widely promoted by today’s publishers.

Features & merits of METAWORKS

01

Automatically typesets high-quality layout using a design template made in InDesign by Adobe Inc, the industry de facto standard. Can output files in various print formats including of course InDesign native files, but also pdf amongst others.

02

Can be operated intuitively, requiring no programming knowledge. All settings are done in one screen. There is no need to turn the pages of our manual at each operation.

 

03

XML technology enables multiple functionalities such as data and template mapping, data conversion, data editing, and automatic typesetting. Our innovative GUI allows you to use the application without any awareness of XML.

04

Supports importing CSV, XML, EXCEL files as well as Access and FileMaker data files.
Limited Edition supports only CSV/XML/EXCEL

05

Automatic production of point-of-purchase advertisement (small lot multi types) and variable-data production of business cards, envelopes, or printing addresses on postcards will become incredibly smooth.  This also have massive effect on listing for production using a fixed layout with large number of page such as product catalogs or member lists.

06

You can easily produce large amounts of automatic typeset files, in one-action, by using the HotFolder function in the Standard Edition.
