“MBM – Media Book Management” by Hyphen-Italia

By law, today school publishers in Italy are required to make a digital version of any textbook they publish available (this applies to textbooks for the middle and high school). Most of Italian school publishers have joined Scuolabook to publish all of their work online, to be purchased by the Italian students.

Some of the largest Italian publishing groups for scholarly publishing like RCS (Rizzoli Corriere della Sera Group), De Agostini Publishing Group and Pearson Italia (through their brands/imprints, e.g. Bompiani, Fabbri publishers, Longman, Pearson, Garzanti, De Agostini Scuola – totaling about 40% of all the school publishers that joined the Scuolabook platform) use the solution “MBM – Media Book Management” by Hyphen-Italia to manage their book production.

The generation of PDF files in a format required by the platform (e.g. 150dpi, RGB, TPS format, etc.) is performed by DALIM SOFTWARE’s TWIST, starting from print-ready PDFs uploaded into MBM.
But TWIST does a little more than just file conversion, it also automatically adds all necessary metadata for the Scuolabook platform to each PDF, allowing publishers to achieve significant savings in the operations of publication for/on the Scuolabook platform.

This solution – as well as allowing book production managers and editors to manage a publishing project and archiving all the assets related to the books/publications – enables the automatic output to different channels of publishing, including the Scuolabook platform.
More on Scuolabook and their Media Book Management integration can be found in the next issue of our THEMAGAZINE.
