Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 1.0.10, a feature update to its output workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign.

The new version lets users create large format JPEG files and improves color management of exported images.

Toronto (ON), Canada (March 7, 2014) — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.0.10, a feature update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign workflow by processing files from watched hot folders.

The new version lets users create large format JPEG images that exceed the file size limitations imposed by InDesign. This improvement has been achieved by using intermediate PDF files as the image source instead of InDesign’s direct JPEG export. In addition, the new update lets users embed document’s color profile to preserve the original image color values in exported TIFF and JPEG files.

Under Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy InDesign jobs to hot folders that reside on a network. Users can create hot folders for any type of output – for example hi-res PDF, large format printing, EPUB files and so on. Output Factory Server offers the following key features:

Print and export InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders
-Support for print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats
-Supports unlimited users on a network
-Export as single pages
Layer versioning: output specific layers and their combinations as single files
-Variable output file names
-Preflight files before output
-Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors

Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for US$699.95, as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput Server users can upgrade for $349.97. Output Factory Server runs on Mac OS X 10.6-10.9 and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CC.

Eye Tracking helps Internet Marketing and Online Advertising

Using the latest Eye Tracking equipment Vancouver area company I-METRIX can now help answer many questions using eye tracking technology samples of the webpage and ad can be viewed by test participants and their eyes tracked as they progress through the website.

I-Metrix

Vancouver, BC, Canada (March 6, 2014) — Many companies and marketing managers invest in Internet marketing and online advertising, however they are not sure how the viewers will react to their adverts.

Banner blindness is a term used where viewers never see the ad due to them learning how to tune out items they consider advertising and that might slow them down with their endeavours. This can happen when a viewer is looking for particular information and goes directly to the area they are looking for.

Several factors can be involved that affect the success of online banner type ads.

Is this the right type of website to advertise on; are their visitors likely candidates for your offering?

What is the best position for the ad is it the Leader Board a Tower Ad or other position?

Are there too many ads competing for traffic on the page, is the webpage too busy with other information to distract the viewer.

Does the ad contrast with the webpage? Do animations in the ad help or deter the viewer.

Is the ad positioned above or below the page fold, or is it rarely seen.

If paying for impressions only it is critical that the ad at least gets seen. Will changing the ad style or even moving to a text ad improve the investment?

If images are involved will changing them to a different image improve click trough rates?

Many of these questions are difficult to answer often when low click trough rates are blamed on the website used for advertising and it could well be one of many other factors.

Using the latest Eye Tracking equipment Vancouver area company I-METRIX (http://www.I-Metrix.ca) can now help answer many of these questions using eye tracking technology samples of the webpage and ad can be viewed by test participants and their eyes tracked as they progress through the website. Tasks are often given to the participants and real time data and reports are generated. Often different scenarios can be created to determine which the most effective promotion for the campaign is. Similar services are offered by I-METRIX for customers that place advertising in video applications.

Amnesty Support Costs Pete Sessions Endorsement Changed To His Primary Opponent

ALIPAC is dropping the organization’s eight year endorsement of Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and endorsing his GOP primary opponent Katrina Pierson due to the release of activist videos showing Sessions supporting a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants similar to what Barack Obama has called for.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Raleigh, NC, USA (March 3, 2014) — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) Press@alipac.us / (866) 703-0864

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is dropping the organization’s eight year endorsement of Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and endorsing his GOP primary opponent Katrina Pierson due to the release of activist videos showing Sessions supporting a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants similar to what Barack Obama has called for.

ALIPAC is now endorsing Pete Sessions’ GOP primary opponent Katrina Pierson because she has completed a survey pledging to support America’s existing border and immigration laws instead of any form of amnesty for illegal immigrants. (click here for survey)

“Pete Sessions had a lot of people really fooled into thinking he was a supporter of America’s existing border and immigration laws,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “We were shocked to find out he is one of the Republican sellouts trying to change our existing laws to ‘accommodate’ and legalize millions of illegal aliens which would eventually permanently degrade America’s borders, laws, Constitution, and elections!”

ALIPAC has endorsed Congressman Pete Sessions since 2006 due to his strong grades with NumbersUSA and his prior commentaries about opposing amnesty for illegals and illegal immigration.

ALIPAC is dropping the endorsement for Congressman Pete Sessions due to activist videos just released that show Pete Sessions speaking at several town halls in 2013 making comments in support of John Boehner’s plan to legalize millions of illegal immigrants. (click here for videos)

Mathew Boyle of Breitbart News reports on March 1 that, “In the videos, Sessions frames his support for amnesty as granting legal status to illegal aliens who are not violent criminals-but somehow not citizenship, even though anyone who obtains a green card is allowed to eventually apply for citizenship. Sessions described such an amnesty as aiming to ‘accommodate’ illegal aliens.” (click for full article)

Americans in every state are being asked by ALIPAC to drop their support for Pete Sessions due to his support for Obama’s nation disrupting amnesty plans and to offer their support to Katrina Pierson in the 32nd Congressional District of Texas!

Congressman Pete Sessions has now been added to ALIPAC’s tracking list of 46 GOP members of Congress that support John Boehner’s plan to help Obama pass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in America. ALIPAC wants strong GOP primary challengers to confront and defeat the Republican members of Congress on this list (click here).

I-Metrix

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (March 3, 2014) — Many companies spend large portions of their budget to ensure customers come to their digital offering whether it be a Website, a Commercial or a Video.

After spending budgets on SEO, online or other methods, they feel “we have done our job to get the customers to view the media”.

But once at your website or other digital media do they find their way through the content to their goal? Perhaps they are looking for information, wishing to buy or are they taking a look at that special promotion?

Now with Real Time Eye Tracking you can exactly view their path and see what took their interest. Using the latest equipment, Vancouver area company I-METRIX (http://www.i-metrix.ca), offers a sample user testing service providing complete viewer data reports. Parameters can be implemented to measure ease of navigation for the viewer to determine your desired results.

Eye Tracking can offer a method to evaluate any project before it is launched allowing critical changes to be implemented, if needed, after testing.

Target areas can be implemented into the test whether it be a webpage or video to see how long a user viewed or fixated on the specific area and if they returned for multiple viewings.

Fixations and Saccades are recorded in real time showing flow and interest as well as the length of time they looked at the item. The Mouse is also tracked in the test and offers insights on areas clicked to move to a different page or offering.

Eye Tracking can offer an advantage over your competition that are maybe just launching media and hoping it is successful.

This relatively new technology definitely gets “inside the users head”.
