CCI Europe adds Digital Collections DC-X

Digital Collections in Hamburg acquired by CCI


CCI Europe based in Hojbjerg, Denmark has acquired full ownership of Hamburg, Germany based Digital Collections. Digital Collections will now join the existing collaboration between CCI and its other subsidiary company, Escenic, in the development of its online CUE news publishing platform. CCI’s editorial systems, including Newsgate, are used by leading news publishers such as Kasturi and Sons and Bennett-Coleman, in India.

In the last six months, CCI has received orders for CUE installations from several large media companies such as The Economist, Polish broadcaster TVN, and German news publishers Der Tagesspiegel, Handelsblatt, Badische Neueste Nachrichten and Ippen-Gruppe, according to the company. Digital Collections is known for its DC-X digital asset management platform, which enables media companies to manage content assets such as pictures, text and videos in a central content repository and integrate external sources, such as RSS feeds and agency wires, into their content creation workflow, according to CCI.

To be added as a native component of CCI’s CUE, DC-X will continue as a standalone digital asset management solution as well. The Hamburg-based supplier of content, editorial and publishing production workflow systems ppiMedia also uses Digital Collections DC-X in conjunction with its Content-X editorial system for storing content in a media-neutral format to be played out as text, images, video and audio.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
