codeMantra Teams with Media Entities to Deliver New Crescendo Publishing Platform

01/13/2014 | 10:48am US/Eastern

Crescendo Simplifies Content Production, Asset Management and Distribution

Publishers now have a simpler, more time efficient way to compose, manage and distribute content with Crescendo, a new cloud based platform developed by strategic technology partners codeMantra and Media Entities. Crescendo integrates codeMantra's collectionPoint TM software with Media Entities' XML Maestro applications to create the industry's first end-to-end composition to distribution solution.

"The publishing industry is progressing rapidly in light of new technologies and end-user expectations for on-demand content in the format of their choice. As a result, it has never been more critical for publishers to have the ability to get their content to market in multiple digital and print formats quickly and manage their diverse assets more efficiently," said Walter Walker, codeMantra's Executive Director of Publishing Services. "By partnering with Media Entities and integrating their easy-to-use XML content production tools with our digital asset management and distribution solutions we offer publishers a new approach to their entire content workflow and master data management."

"It is not uncommon for the content production and distribution process to take days if not weeks, which costs publishers valuable time and revenue," said Dan Nigloschy, Media Entities' CEO and Founder. "Crescendo alleviates this challenge by enabling publishers to produce DTDs and therefore multiple format outputs within a single workday's time."

With Crescendo, publishers can build XML first DTD titles directly from Word®, PDF TM, InDesign TM or XML files in less than seven hours and export them to any file format and distribution point with a push of a button.

In addition to the release of Crescendo, publishers may choose codeMantra's Legato Reader® to deliver their digital content to end-users directly from their own website, the Apple Store or Google Play. Legato is the industry's first fully customizable eBook software reader, which provides publishers with complete control of how their content displays, functions, and is purchased. For more information about the Legato Reader and Crescendo, visit www.codemantra.com.
