Paper Abstract

Professional authoring environments are used by Graphic Artists (GA) during the design phase of any publication type. With the increasing demand for supporting Variable Data Print (VDP) designs, these authoring environments require enhanced capabilities. The recurring challenge is to provide flexible VDP features that can be represented using several VDP enabling XML based formats. Considering the different internal structure of the authoring environments, a common platform needs to be developed. The solution must, at the same time, empower the GA with a rich VDP feature set, as well as, generating a range of output formats that drive their respective VDP workflows. We have designed a common architecture to collect the required data from the hosting application and a generic internal representation that enables multiple XML output formats.
