Press Release: Aquafadas AQ Cloud Authoring Makes Its Debut at the Frankfurt Book Fair
Frankfurt, Germany - October 10, 2013 - Aquafadas, innovative developer of digital publishing solutions, is now previewing its new cloud-based digital platform, AQ Cloud Authoring, at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Running from October 9-13, book fair attendees can visit Aquafadas (stand E67 in hall 8) for the first-hand look at the newest addition to the company's award-winning digital publishing technology offering.
AQ Cloud Authoring lets just about anyone looking to publish an eBook easily convert PDF files into digital format and distribute across tablets, smartphones and the Web. With simple-to-use production tools, users can re-order and crop pages as well as add enrichments like Guided Reading, a unique Aquafadas capability that allows readers to glide smoothly through text with one simple tap. AQ Cloud Authoring's flexible export options include ePUB, AVE (for publishing apps) and the WebReader.
"While we officially began work on AQ Cloud Authoring a year ago, we poured approximately seven years of our existing digital publishing R&D into building this new platform," said Thomas Ribreau, technical director at Aquafadas. "With AQ Cloud Authoring, our goal was to close the gap between what customers did manually versus what could be automated, simplifying the overall digital publishing workflow while greatly accelerating production time. And AQ Cloud Authoring does exactly this, fulfilling just about any publishing need - from corporations looking for an easy way to publish marketing materials and beginners just getting into digital publishing, to publishing giants looking to push large numbers of titles automatically to mobile devices within a matter of minutes."
Digital Publishing on Cloud Nine AQ Cloud Authoring makes it simple for publishers to quickly create near exact replicas of any print publication, requiring only an Internet connection to convert files. The intuitive workflow, which is designed for non-technical users, supports all document types - magazines, books, marketing collateral and more. Authors just upload files into AQ Cloud Authoring, fill out the metadata, then add enrichments, and make simple adjustments, such as cropping or re-ordering the pages. Before purchasing the final product, users can take content through a test-spin on the spot by downloading 30% of the file for free.
