The eye-catching Roxen booth at IFRA Hamburg has been crowded more or less constantly during the expo's opening day. Our two demo stations have been attracting visitors from all parts of the world. This day represents the launch of Roxen Editorial Portal v5 which contains our new write-to-fit functionality, and with this addition a REP user gets immediate story previews as performed by InDesign Server using nothing but a web browser on the client side. Other notable enhancements in version 5 include integrated spell checker, rich-text support and a secure WebDAV file-sharing service that removes the need for VPN connections for remote REP users. Today's demonstration included the use of Apple's iPad in a workflow where the same story is distributed to both web and tablets.
The fully web-based communication model in Roxen Editorial Portal also provides the foundation for our new cloud-based REP-as-a-Service offering. Our customers can now run REP in any of Amazon's data centers globally. This means you only pay for the hardware capacity you require at the moment and eliminates the need for a local system administrator that keeps the servers running.
