Cambridge, Ma (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
March 12, 2012 Cambridge, MA — Noteflight, LLC (noteflight.com), developer of innovative online music notation software, today announced the release of Noteflight Publishing Service, a cloud-based server platform that manages digital sheet music assets and delivers interactive musical content to tablets, smartphones, HTML5 browsers and the Noteflight Score Editor. The service is aimed at publishers, institutions and distributors of sheet music, and is available for use under a variety of flexible licensing arrangements.
Noteflight Publishing Service (NPS) is a cloud-based service which converts digital music files into graphics and audio on the server side, using Noteflight’s music layout engine. NPS then delivers the results to authorized users, formatted on the fly according to their needs. It harnesses the advantage of the computing cloud, freeing content owners from the need to manage their musical assets and generate them in a huge variety of file formats. Scores may be provided as MusicXML files or sourced from Noteflight’s innovative online score editing website Noteflight.com.
Most other digital sheet music systems work by magnifying or shrinking the original printed pages of a score to fit a device’s screen, which results in music that is hard to read and play along with on a tablet or a web browser. In contrast, NPS automatically lays out a score’s notes, measures and staves in a way that is sized and formatted for any application — whether on a smartphone, a tablet, or a large screen. NPS can also provide sheet music in the best data format for viewing
