Smart Edit is pre-edit, copyedit, and conversion tool that incorporates natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI) to benefit publishers not only in terms of editorial quality but also better, faster markup and delivery to output channels. Smart Edit comprises several components that run together seamlessly, transforming a raw, unedited manuscript into an edited, structured, valid XML document. From this XML document, Smart Edit creates a host of outputs such as PDF, HTML5, ePub, and customized XML.
Smart Compose is a fully automated production engine that ingests structured output from Smart Edit and generates page proofs. Designed to work with both 3B2 and InDesign, built-in styles based on publisher specifications guarantee consistent, high-quality layouts. Smart Compose transforms content and enables the fastest turnaround times in the industry.
Smart Proof provides authors and editors with a browser-based correction tool that captures changes and allows for valid round tripping of XML. Smart Proof presents composed pages via any web browser and offers an interface to update content in real time. With a Word-like look and feel authors and editors can easily make line edits and insert queries while the system maintains back-end XML.
Smart Track brings everything together in one easy user interface. Smart Track logs every content transaction within the workflow, eliminating the need for manual tracking and reporting and having to synchronize a myriad of spreadsheets. The module is seamlessly integrated within Cenveo Publisher Suite and automates editorial and production tasks and streamlines production workflows. The user interface presents a familiar workflow overview with drill-down capabilities that track issues and improve both system and individual performance.
