Condé Nast deploys Nstein's Digital Asset Management to centralize and deliver content

    The publisher unlocks years of archives and gets ready for the future
with a central platform that normalizes, indexes and streamlines multi-channel
content delivery

    MONTREAL, Nov. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Nstein Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: EIN), a
leader in online publishing solutions for newspapers, magazines and online
content providers, announced today the official deployment of its Digital
Asset Management (DAM) and Text Mining Engine (TME) solutions at Condé Nast,
the world-renowned publisher of prestigious consumer magazines such as Vogue,
The New Yorker, GQ, Vanity Fair and Wired. Nstein's solutions enable the
publisher to accelerate content access and delivery for its staff and partners
while ensuring maximum repurposing and monetization.
    With millions of assets scattered over several repositories, Condé Nast
needed a central content management gateway that would allow its staff to
rapidly access and manage all digital assets and streamline content
syndication as well. Nstein's DAM and TME address these objectives perfectly,
enabling the publisher to manage content in various formats and to perform XML
normalization along with native XML storage. Using the web-based and secured
platform, Condé Nast's editorial staff can fully manage and edit assets as
well as perform advanced search and retrieval. At the heart of Condé Nast's
new platform resides Nstein's TME that automatically indexes incoming content,
building a semantic link between assets and enriching them with metatags that
are compatible with the IPTC industry-standard taxonomy and Condé Nast's
partner's requirements. The publisher now also benefits from multi-channel
delivery processes, using export rules to perform automated content delivery
using various destination-specific formats.
    "Nstein's DAM designed for magazine publishers provides us the
scalability and flexibility needed as well as full and central access to our
assets-critical elements to support the growing needs of our organization,"
said Edward Klaris, VP Editorial, Assets & Rights for Condé Nast. "Condé Nast
had ambitious plans, and we've achieved our goals thanks to Nstein's
well-planned implementation process backed with their genuine commitment to
our success."
    "A beacon in the publishing universe, we are proud to partner with Condé
Nast and rollout a structure that will support their present and future needs
in terms of global digital asset management," said Luc Filiatreault, President
and CEO of Nstein Technologies. "Nstein's Digital Asset Management truly
delivers important business value to publishers by lowering their operational
costs and improving their bottom line."
    The deployment of Nstein's solutions at Condé Nast is part of an
agreement publicly announced by Nstein on January 18th, 2007.
