Aquafadas AQ Cloud Authoring Makes Its Debut at the Frankfurt Book Fair

Frankfurt, Germany (PRWEB) October 10, 2013

Aquafadas (, innovative developer of digital publishing solutions, is now previewing its new cloud-based digital platform, AQ Cloud Authoring (more here), at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Running from October 9-13, book fair attendees can visit Aquafadas (stand E67 in hall 8) for the first-hand look at the newest addition to the company’s award-winning digital publishing technology offering.

AQ Cloud Authoring lets just about anyone looking to publish an eBook easily convert PDF files into digital format and distribute across tablets, smartphones and the Web. With simple-to-use production tools, users can re-order and crop pages as well as add enrichments like Guided Reading, a unique Aquafadas capability that allows readers to glide smoothly through text with one simple tap. AQ Cloud Authoring’s flexible export options include ePUB, AVE (for publishing apps) and the WebReader.

“While we officially began work on AQ Cloud Authoring a year ago, we poured approximately seven years of our existing digital publishing R&D into building this new platform,” said Thomas Ribreau, technical director at Aquafadas. “With AQ Cloud Authoring, our goal was to close the gap between what customers did manually versus what could be automated, simplifying the overall digital publishing workflow while greatly accelerating production time. And AQ Cloud Authoring does exactly this, fulfilling just about any publishing need – from corporations looking for an easy way to publish marketing materials and beginners just getting into digital publishing, to publishing giants looking to push large numbers of titles automatically to mobile devices within a matter of minutes.”

Digital Publishing on Cloud Nine

AQ Cloud Authoring makes it simple for publishers to quickly create near exact replicas of any print publication, requiring only an Internet connection to convert files. The intuitive workflow, which is designed for non-technical users, supports all document types – magazines, books, marketing collateral and more. Authors just upload files into AQ Cloud Authoring, fill out the metadata, then add enrichments, and make simple adjustments, such as cropping or re-ordering the pages. Before purchasing the final product, users can take content through a test-spin on the spot by downloading 30% of the file for free.

Volume Publishing That Saves Money and Time

AQ Cloud Authoring also lets publishers turn large volumes of PDF files into digital content in a matter of minutes. No longer do organizations need to spend additional time and resources to painstakingly recreate titles into digital-specific formats. With AQ Cloud Authoring, users can easily convert vast archives or mass-produced content in just ten minutes, providing a fast and affordable way for publishers to offer a wide variety of material on tablets and the web.

Ouest-France, which boasts an impressive 2.5 million daily readers making it one of France's most popular daily newspapers, is beta testing the new AQ Cloud Authoring to digitally distribute its 53 local issues to subscribers every day. “By utilizing the AQ Cloud Authoring platform, we were able to create a digital presence that met our readers' expectations,” states Fabrice Bazard, SIPA group director of digital development at Ouest-France. “For quality reasons, we were looking for a partner able to process and automate our content flow exactly. To our full satisfaction, Aquafadas succeeded in delivering this automation. Publishing on iPad and iPhone is the first step of our digital deployment. We also plan to deploy the newspaper on Google, possibly on other tablets and on our website. Using Aquafadas tools, we are able to use the same digital publishing workflow for all these platforms.”

The daily task is completed in less than an hour with more than 650 pages converted and published by AQ Cloud Authoring. Local editions are automatically pushed to each subscriber’s device Monday through Sunday, allowing readers to instantly enjoy the newspaper’s daily digital editions with added enrichments such as page-by-page and article-by-article navigation, and embedded slideshows.

“Working with the publishing teams to release Ouest-France on iPad and iPhone has been a pleasure, and we appreciate that this launch is the first in a long list. With the Ouest-France project, AQ Cloud Authoring has shown its ability to effectively support the substantial digital publishing workloads of publishers: automating more than 95% of the conversion and distribution work, making it possible to create high-quality content for tablets,” says Claudia Zimmer, president of Aquafadas.

Small Publishers Get on the Fast (and Cost-Effective) Track to ePublishing

Aquafadas Cloud Authoring removes the barriers to digital publishing for companies working with smaller budgets, resources or both. With AQ Cloud Authoring, it’s simply a matter of converting a PDF file by uploading it into your server for conversion and distribution to either WebReader or ePUB or an App. AQ Cloud Authoring manages the technical complexities of file formats behind the scenes. The transparent workflow eliminates the need for additional technical resources. “With easy-to-use tools and budget-friendly distribution options, AQ Cloud Authoring has made it very easy for just about anyone to adopt a digital strategy and enter the digital publishing world,” Zimmer comments. “We look forward to helping individuals and organizations alike realize their digital publishing initiatives and sharing the many new and exciting features planned in AQ Cloud Authoring in the months ahead.”

AQ Cloud Authoring will be available Q4 2013. For more information on AQ Cloud Authoring and other Aquafadas solutions, please visit

Best-selling Author James O’Kon Travels to Miami, Florida for the Institute of Maya Studies and the Miami Book Fair International

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 13, 2012

James OKon, author of The Lost Secrets of Maya Technology, will be speaking to members of the Institute of Maya Studies in Miami, Florida on Wednesday night November 14 at 8 p.m.. The Institute of Maya Studies has been promoting scholarship on pre-Columbian cultures since its founding in 1972. Each month it hosts a presentation by a current researcher. The Institute of Maya Studies meetings are held at the Miami Science Museum, located at 3280 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL.

Here's what Joaquin Rodriguez, the Institute of Maya Studies' resident professional engineer, said about O'Kon's book:

"This is a thoroughly enjoyable book on a very important subject written by a highly qualified engineer with the right expertise to cover this matter. It is well researched and simply written. The excellent photography, helpful diagrams and graphic reconstructions add to the understanding of the subject."

James OKon will also be at the 2012 Miami Book Fair International. On Friday, November 16, the first day of the Street Fair, you will find OKon on Writers Row. The Fair is held at the Wolfson Campus of the Miami Dade College.

James OKon has pursued a lifelong passion for the engineering, sciences and technology of the Maya. In his role as an archaeo-engineer he has combined his unique professional engineering experience with the search for lost Maya technology.

After years of collecting field data, obtained by traveling in dugout canoes, hacking his way through the jungle and sleeping in tents, he was able to use his forensic engineering skills, along with modern digital tools, to reveal the mysteries of lost Maya technology.

His discoveries in Maya technology have been recognized by National Geographic Magazine, among other publications, and in a production on The History Channel. He has delivered scientific papers dealing with his discoveries in Maya technologies at international engineering and archaeological symposia and presented his discoveries to the Explorers Club in New York City. His explorations and discoveries of Maya technology have been documented in his book, The Lost Secrets of Maya Technology.
