System description metiTec

metiTec is a typesetting system for intelligent, dynamic layout. metiTec supports cross media and media specific publications from various sources at the push of a button.
The system arranges text and picture elements by intelligent layout rules specified by a media designer. The application of the rules is controlled by measuring results of the metiTec typesetting engine.
Source documents (such as Word documents) are automatically transformed into the XML required for the typesetting system. The technology of today's DTP or database publishing software (such as QuarkXPress, InDesign, FrameMaker, Arbortext and others) can be completely replaced with metiTec or supplemented by metiTec components.
The typesetting system can be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of data storage systems. The system is used to produce publications with complex layouts, such as medical journals, legal documents, technical documentation, collections, publisher previews, catalogues and directories.

Initial installation: 2014
