Create beautiful, fully-featured InDesign documents, enabling those without InDesign to edit them online, creating high-quality output. Enable those who aren’t graphic artists to place content into templates for a great, designed look. Control the user experience: editing online can be as guided or freeform as desired, white-labeled and customized to your requirements. Interface with internal or external systems through RESTful services and modern web standards. What is Silicon Designer?
  10. 10. © 2019 Silicon Publishing. All Rights Reserved. Silicon Publishing Confidential. InDesign Server is the exact same application as desktop InDesign, but controlled by code instead of a UI. It uses templates built in desktop Adobe InDesign. It can save out INDD files, or any format that InDesign can emit (JPG, PNG, PDF, etc.). InDesign Server is the ideal composition engine for online editing, as it has all the features of the most robust composition engine in existence. Create InDesign documents programmatically
  11. 11. © 2019 Silicon Publishing. All Rights Reserved. Silicon Publishing Confidential. Silicon Designer is a platform for creating online editing experiences. It is not intended to replace InDesign, but rather to facilitate editing of InDesign documents through a web interface that is very easy to use. Many use cases in both B2B and B2C: from a grandmother making a greeting card, to a salesperson making a pricing change, to a franchise tailoring collateral for their location. By using templates created by professional designers, mere mortals can create the highest quality output. Enable non-designers to create InDesign output

On the one hand, if you aren’t a designer, it may be dangerous to allow design decisions such as changing font and color. On the other, advanced users may well want to have unlimited creative freedom. Silicon Designer can cover the gamut from locked-down “text only” edits to complete creative freedom. Templates can be set up to define different editing rules at the page item level. Control the user interface
  13. 13. © 2019 Silicon Publishing. All Rights Reserved. Silicon Publishing Confidential. Silicon Designer is a module for editing documents, built with modern web standards and technologies such as Angular and RESTful services. It can be contained in shopping carts, workflow systems, asset management systems, or any form of web portal. We can also interface with other systems in a modular fashion: for example the image gallery can access multiple DAMs, stock photos, or social media, or variable elements can pull from external data sources. We offer Designer as cloud-based, on prem, or hybrid. Interface with internal or external systems.

Silicon Designer Roadmap Unifying our work in server-based rendition and WYISIWYG on canvas, to provide a single system covering the extremes and anywhere in between. "Starter kit” and greater exposure of our APIs for quick implementation and easy extensibility. We continue our march towards long document features. More work with semantic XML, InCopy-like stories, and component-based authoring. More dimensional features, to visualize 2D print and support 3D printing. Interface with our variable data publishing solutions. Advances in concert with Adobe’s CC trajectory.
