-- On December 19, 2007, during a seminar with Apple in Paris, eZ Systems demonstrated eZ Publish running on Mac OS X Server v10.5 Leopard. In addition, eZ showed eZ Flow, a new extension for eZ Publish designed for media companies who need to build complex page layouts and pre-plan publication schedules to ensure a constant flow of rich content. Among other features, eZ Flow supports delivery of content to Apple iPhones.
The combination of eZ and Apple technologies is a natural fit for the media and publishing industries, which value the stability, security and usability of the Mac OS X platform. With support for the Mac OS X Server (which recently attained UNIX 03 certification)
, eZ Publish enhances the platform by providing an Open Source Enterprise Content Management System that enables organizations to create powerful, feature-rich websites, intranets and extranets.
eZ's focus on digital media and commitment to innovative Apple technologies was shown by the attendance of mutual clients such as Prisma Presse. “News and media organizations face unique challenges. They have large and distributed editorial teams, demanding and engaged users, and the need to provide a continuous stream of dynamic content,” explains Bård Farstad, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at eZ Systems.
Because content presentation is based on a template system, eZ Publish (and eZ Flow) can serve tailored content to mobile devices simply by using a template tuned for the devices’ display. For example, a template customized for Apple iPhones tunes the display of content to the iPhone display size and iPhone-specific user interface elements.
