The whole is more than the sum of its parts

You could look at the COMYAN Media System as a very powerful image database, agency system, editorial and page archive and certainly the most powerful newspaper data processing engine ever created [with great-looking ePapers produced automatically, practically as a by-product].

But the whole truth is more than that. Because all the parts are integrated into a single system, a single database and a single user interface, this enables functionality otherwise not possible with separate systems. For instance, every original image in the COMYAN Image System is linked to all pages from the COMYAN Editorial Archive where that image was published [and vice versa]. Searching for images, graphics, agency texts or newspaper articles works in exactly the same way - all share the same user interface, developed in close cooperation with newspaper editors for over a decade. And because the powerful newspaper data processing engine [accepting native data from more than ten different editorial systems and page planning systems] is producing the best data for the archive, creating high-quality ePaper editions [for online, PDA and mobile] is just a snap - usually without any human intervention, as a batch job running at night.
