Ixxus Design Hub

Ixxus Design Hub (IDH) plugs directly into Adobe InDesign, allowing you to automatically convert books and publications into fixed layout EPUBs, PDFs and HTML.

The IDH lets editorial teams use familiar design tools t o easily create publications with all the flexibility and rich-media potential of EPUB3. Work in InDesign as usual, then the IDH will extract information from InDesign files and rebuild content and layout faithfully in the output of your choice.

The IDH gives you the ability to powerfully reproduce and repurpose content, streamline and simplify your editorial and production processes, and create enhanced, interactive EPUBs incorporating rich media functionality.

FIXED LAYOUT

Layout is rebuilt to be faithful to the master copy, ensuring that your content is consistent no matter the medium.

CONFIGURABLE CONTENT CREATION

Choose to include or suppress specific content and assets, create a single EPUB from multiple InDesign files, and easily order and reorder documents.

ENHANCED, INTERACTIVE CONTENT

The IDH lets you enhance your EPUB by including interactive features: simple pop-up messages, video and audio clips, and any custom Javascript-based widget.

FLEXIBLE OUTPUT

The IDH works by interrogating the XML structure within IDML documents. Both content and layout can be converted into your chosen outputs: EPUB, PDF, HTML & XML reports.

FAMILIAR TOOLS FOR EASY INTEGRATION

Configurable dashboard, an accessible UI and integration with InDesign means the IDH can be easily incorporated into existing workflows.

INTEGRATED TRACKING AND REPORTING

Automated reporting functionality, producing detailed reports which can be collated or utilized for further tracking and analysis. Reports are also available as enhanced XML-format downloads.
