"The METS and ALTO have now been utilized for a number of years. Libraries, universities, newspaper publishers, and newspaper aggregators are familiar with these standards. METS is a standard for encoding descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata regarding objects within a digital library, using XML. Though METS is excellent at describing the structure of a digital object, it is missing the ability to describe the content and layout of each piece of the digital object. So an extension to METS, called ALTO (Analyzed Layout and Text Object), is required for this purpose. The combination of METS and ALTO was originally developed by the METAe project, and later was adopted by the Library of Congress for its large-scale National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Since then, METS/ALTO has been used in many newspaper digitization projects—both large and small—as well as a number of projects digitizing books and journals. A typical METS/ALTO object encodes the complete logical and physical structure of a document (i.e., chapters, sections, articles, pages, etc., and their associated metadata), as well as the full-text content of each section of the document, and even the physical coordinates of every word in the document.

Swift ProSys is an experienced provider of newspaper digitization services. Our staff has many years of experience scanning newspapers both from paper form and from microfilm. If you have a collection of newspapers that you would like to make accessible and searchable, Swift Prosys’s newspaper digitization services are for you.
If you have a collection of newspapers on microfilm or fiche, first ensure that you have copyright permission to reproduce the content for online display. Many third-party vendors will scan hundreds or thousands of images directly from microformats. Scanning microformats in-house is also an option if you have a microfilm reader/scanner that can render high quality digital files, a desktop license for OCR software, and sufficient staff time to dedicate to this task.
If you have a print collection of newspapers, first ensure that you have copyright permission to reproduce the content for online display. Many third-party vendors are able to scan the paper copy, often providing a better digital copy than would originate from a microfilm or microfiche copy. Scanning in-house is also an option if you have a large bed scanner or a camera with tripod and sufficient staff time to dedicate to this task.
"Typesetting, also often referred to as ""composition,"" ""layout,"" and ""production,"" is the ordering of text on a page for visual display. Design precedes typesetting. Before typesetting begins, you first need to have templates for your pages. The templates are created during the design stage. Using a simple text-only book as an example, template design elements would include trim size, margins, fonts, number of lines per page, headers and footers, and page numbers. Typesetting occurs once your page templates are set up. In this stage, the book’s content is imported into the template and each element is formatted according to its specific design across all pages. Page design is usually done by a graphic designer, who may or may not be a typesetter. Sometimes a designer may create the template, and then hand it off to the typesetter, who will then ""apply"" that design to the content across all pages. In other instances, the designer and typesetter may be one and the same. (We do both.) "
Amazon helps you to sell the .mobi format. The ePub files can be sold through Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo store, etc.
Digital Rights Management is used by media publishers (including book, music and film) to restrict unauthorised copying, conversion and distribution of their copyrighted content. For the scholarly publishing community DRM is used to prevent unlicensed usage of content.

Kindle and ePub are the most popular eBook formats. Kindle is a format that works on tablets like Kindle Fire , Kindle DX and other Kindle devices. ePub is a format that works on iPad, Nook, Sony ,Kobo and other android based tablets.
" Yes! We can both manage the process of producing a quality eBook, as well as creating valid epub (Apple/Nook) and mobi (Kindle) files. We can also design and produce PDF files that can be read on a variety of devices. We are also expertise in creating fixed-layout eBooks, ePub3, or eBooks with a great deal of design complexity, and we produce apps, such as those generated from the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite."
Conversion service is converting files from one format to preferred ebook format like ePub, Kindle, .Lit , pdb etc.
" Most, but not all, eBooks have a print version they’re generated from. Typically, our workflow starts with the InDesign file of the print book version, from which we export an epub file. From there, we fine-tune the coding of the epub, generate an embedded table of contents, and then test the file to ensure it’s “valid” for distribution to Apple, B&N, etc. At this point, we send the client an epub “proof” to load to a device(s) for review. After any necessary revisions and client approval of the epub, we generate a mobi file for review on the Kindle. Upon approval of the mobi, we pass on the final, distribution-ready epub and mobi files. If the eBook does not have a print version to start with, or the print version is not in Adobe InDesign, we can also work with Word docs and PDF files."
"MAchine Readable Cataloging-a standard format for bibliographic records. (A catalog card is an example of a bibliographic record.) Translation: the information about a book or other item, in the same form as that used by everyone else cataloging books, so computers can read the record. This standardized format means that any system which is MARC-compatible can read and interpret the information in exactly the same way, no matter which system was used to create the MARC record, or which system is reading the record. (Most library automation systems are MARC-based--don't buy one that isn't.) MARC records have pieces of information ""tagged,"" or labeled in such a way that the software reading them knows exactly what kind of information it's looking for, or looking at. For example, we know John Grisham as an author; the MARC record tags John Grisham as 100 (or main entry--personal name field); what we call a title is MARC's 245. The MARC tag is also used by the computer software to locate the piece of information within the bibliographic record. This system allows computers to work with the information more efficiently. The good news is that catalogers don't have to know exactly how the computer finds the information but they do need to know where to put the information, and how to tag it, so that the computer can do its job."
"We have been in the content-conversion and digitization business for over 7 years. In that time, We have seen quite a bit of progress and innovation, as well as a lot of change that directly affects the way we had to approach our business. The emergence of formats such as SGML and XML, increasingly available and inexpensive data communication, and the arrival of big data (along with everything that term can mean) have all advanced, and drastically changed, how people work with content. Digitization is more than taking paper and turning it into text. For the present and most certainly into the future, content needs to be easily findable and accessible across most if not all devices and platforms—but also transformable to meet future needs."
In most of cases we expect DTD/Schema to be provided by client because to prepare DTD/Schema file needs analysis of huge data and expected structure of data to fix all possible variant in source.
We offer xml services as well as other conversions like HTML, PDF, TXT, XLS etc. We have total 7 years experience in data conversion fields.
We are providing xml conversion services since 2009. We are able to provide our services in combination of various languages including European Languages.
XML stands for Extensible Markup Language. It is designed to carry data and not only display data. Anyone can defines the own tags to code the xml file. All tags are self-descriptive and easy to use. The information converted in xml format is identifying more accurate, flexible, and adaptable way. We can convert data from various formats like hard source, PDF, TIFF, JPG etc to xml format.
When you scan your documents, you eliminate the need for physical paper storage, which means no more file cabinets, file folders, filing processes, or the associated staff to manage it all. Scanning also allows you to reclaim valuable office space. Paper requires a lot of physical storage, mainly in file cabinets.
Document indexing is the process by which key fields are entered for your documents to be retrieved by later. Organization is the key to finding documents quickly and reliably. Lets say you store your documents in folders in file cabinets with little tags sticking up on each folder which contain a social security number. The social security number would be a great example of an index field. Each scanned document would have a social security number associated with it for retrieval purposes. The more of these fields you have the more expensive the process becomes.
One of the main benefits of digital imaging is that it drastically reduces the time it takes to access your records. Digital imaging reduces your storage costs and space. Also, digital imaging is beneficial for companies that have multiple locations with several employees that need access to the same information.
A paper-based filing system leaves your documents susceptible to being misplaced, lost, stolen or destroyed from fire or water damage. When you convert your paper documents to digital, you’re getting a layer of security unmatched by paper. Scanning helps you manage your policies for compliance and record retention. Besides, you never know when a disaster could hit so why take the risk? You always need a back-up plan when it comes to critical data. Scanning your documents can help you prevent data loss and keep your documents safe from disaster.
If you have a small amount of documents you could certainly do it on your own with a desktop scanner. But, if you have a large volume of documents (hundreds to thousands), it’s best to outsource your scanning project to document scanning specialists like us. We use state-of-the-art high speed scanners to produce outstanding images and our certified scanning specialists perform quality checks at every step. This allows us to turn your scanning project around quickly and accurately. If you did it yourself, you’d have to deal with the hassles of purchasing and maintaining the equipment, training your staff, and managing the entire process to make sure your project stays on course and within budget. In the end, outsourcing is generally far less costly and of better quality than bringing it in-house and doing it yourself.
There are many pros versus a few cons when it comes to document scanning. Disaster recovery, ease of access, auditing, security, and less file cabinets are just a few pros of document imaging. The major con is that it may cost a lot up front. Conversely, the longer you keep your physical paper the more it will cost you in the future.
Indexing is key to the easy retrieval of electronic records. You should index your records according to the information that will be needed in order to retrieve the record. We can assist you in creating your indexing system. We offer customised indexing based on your company’s needs. Also, we offer an OCR option to help with the search and retrieval of your electronic records.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a process by which machine printed text is read electronically. OCR can read an entire document for the purposes of building an index or for recreation purposes. For example, you can create a word document from the scanned images OCR results to be edited later in Microsoft Word.
Because remote services are responsible for client-side maintenance, this eliminates the need for application developers to worry about client configuration issues and OS support. They do not need to write code specifically to work under remote services in the same way they need to write code for a browser.
