Easily programmed and managed:
QuarkXPress Server supports standard programming interfaces and protocols including HTTP, SOAP, PHP, .NET, ASP, Java, and JSP.

It also allows you to manipulate QuarkXPress projects using Quark’s XML-based description language for page layouts and formatting. And it provides out-of-the-box load balancing and server management for rapid development of high-performance publishing workflows and business applications.

Designed to integrate:
Well-designed APIs allow you to more quickly leverage existing systems and naturally fit QuarkXPress Server solutions into your clients’ existing publishing or Web environments. Connect to standard business systems including databases, digital asset management (DAM), enterprise content management (ECM), and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.

And add the layout and typographic capability of QuarkXPress to Web application development environments such as HTML, AJAX, ASP.NET, Flash/Flex®, and Silverlight®.

Built to scale:
QuarkXPress Server increases your clients’ productivity and throughput, while providing out-of-the-box manageability.

  • Run multiple, concurrent instances of QuarkXPress Server on a single computer, taking advantage of multi-processor hardware.
  • In addition, QuarkXPress Server provides Subrenderers, which can run on dedicated CPUs to increase throughput via parallel job execution. A single instance of your application, powered by QuarkXPress Server, can provide up to eight rendering engines on a quad-processor computer, with only one installation of the software. QuarkXPress Server readily supports the creation of fully managed rendering farms for large-scale production needs. These multi-server environments can be centrally managed and controlled with the included QuarkXPress Server Manger — allowing for load balancing among multiple servers, error handing, and automated reporting.

Drives automation:
Automated production workflows are critical to increasing efficiencies and lowering your costs. Scripting capabilities — including script scheduling, a built-in script editor and cross-platform JavaScript support — provide the power to automate common workflow and document-production tasks. Automate redundant manual steps in your Web- or data-driven publishing workflows.

Access Quark Job Jackets® and Layout Spaces to automatically populate content across multiple QuarkXPress layouts. Generate the output formats you need, including QuarkXPress, QuarkCopyDesk®, SWF (Flash), XML, PDF, PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, PostScript, PPML, EPS, JPEG, and PNG.

Globally ready:
The global file format supported by all Quark software enables global review and approval by allowing you to open any file authored in any QuarkXPress 8 edition. It supports Unicode® character sets for Roman, Cyrillic, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean languages, and offers dictionaries and hyphenation for over 35 languages.
