Layout-8000

Layout-8000 provides the middleware between advertising management front-end systems and production and pagination back-end systems. It supports automatic, semi-automatic and manual design of advertising layouts and numerous page styles. It can handle complex position requirements and remembers advertiser position preferences.

Features

Layout-8000’s user interface supports wide screens and dual screens. It has a user-customizable ad list that can be searched, sorted, filtered, color-coded, rearranged and exported to spreadsheets. Click on an ad in the list and drag and drop it onto a page.  Or let Layout-8000 use its knowledge base and artificial intelligence-based dummying algorithms to do the task automatically.

Layout-8000 comes with SCS’s busy work reduction technology. It helps sites automate the different workflow tasks associated with integrating disparate systems, managing data and sharing designs.

Color-coded thumbnails identify important position information. Multiple zones can be viewed and worked on simultaneously. Designers can even work on multiple editions at the same time.

Layout-8000’s dummies are drawn as PDFs. These are configurable to meet the needs of any individual or department involved in the design and production of the newspaper.

Layout-8000 can run on a single workstation or on large data center servers. It comes with technology that ensures that the application runs 24/7/365. Remote monitoring by SCS is also available.
