Produce, Syndicate and Monetize Your Content with PRISM XML

PRISM XML Conversion Services

PRISM (the Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata) Specification outlines the metadata vocabulary for aggregating, syndicating and multi-purposing content for journals, magazines, news, catalogs and books. It provides a framework for preserving and interchanging content & metadata, a set of elements to describe the content, and a collection of controlled vocabularies that list the values for these elements.

As a publisher, are you leveraging PRISM Specification to manage, receive and deliver multi-part content? Let SunTec Digital help!

Drawing on our in-depth understanding of PRISM specification, we can help you convert content for journals, magazines, newsletters, books and text books into PRISM XML with complete precision.

Let SunTec Digital Help You Produce, Syndicate and Monetize Your Content with PRISM XML

We convert from both paper-based and electronic formats to deliver fully-tagged and searchable files in conformance with PRISM XML, a standard, reusable Document Type Definition that facilitates content monetization by enabling reuse and aggregation. Our production processes are in place to handle complex, large-volume projects and ensure timely delivery.

PRISM XML Conversion Specialists at SunTec Digital help you:

  • Analyze source files for content granularity as well as their compatibility with PRISM
  • Extract text, images as well as media attachments, and tag the content in PRISM XML, ensuring utmost accuracy
  • Include text styles, metadata and media files

Furthermore, a centralized content repository is created to facilitate content preservation and re-purposing.

PRISM can be used to:

Manage Media Assets and Content in a DAM

PRISM Metadata Specifications can be used to define a metadata vocabulary along with associated controlled vocabularies to ensure management in a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system.
