Sixt-two Transcontinental publications in Canada went live last month on the latest version of Mediaspan’s IQue editorial system, including IQueWeb for remote access.
More than 175 seats of IQue are used at three production centers, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and St John’s, Newfoundland.
Transcontinental sought a solution for consolidating resources while offer individual papers flexibility and power in producing dynamic online and print content.
“Remote connectivity, for newspapers, and publishing in general, is the future, and IQueWeb allows us to accomplish a part of this,” Production and Information Technology Director Rob Batten said in a statement that emphasized the trend toward centralized production and the need for a satisfactory remote user experience.”
IQue supports management of multimedia news packages that incorporate text, pictures, graphics and video. System components include the IQueWeb browser-based entry point to the database and the TransporterNG a automation tool for facilitating delivery and reception of multimedia data for disparate publishing channels.
