PRISM Aggregator Message Package

The PSV Aggregator/Distributor Message Package (pamP) was developed to meet three use cases that represent the magazine and news publishing model found today in Japan. In Japan, an aggregator is synonymous with a distributor. The business model in Japan is for the publisher to create and produce magazine and news content and for an aggregator/distributor to manufacture and deliver the magazine or newspaper (including tablet editions) to the public as a primary publication. The PSV Aggregator/Distributor Message Package Guide [PAMPGUIDE] document describes how to use the PSV metadata fields and pamP XML messaging tags to deliver content to content aggregators/distributors.

Although this implementation of PRISM was designed to support publishing operations in Japan, is not limited to use in Japan. It is a great solution for publishers who wish to begin by tagging issue PDFs with PRISM metadata for archive or interchange and who wish to set a path to evolve to full PSV/XML tagging in the future!

pamP supports the following use cases:

  • Magazine and news publishers wish to deliver PSV-based XML message containing publication/issue and optionally article metadata with an external link to a downloadable issue PDF from a particular centralized server or CMS. In addition, metadata for each article in the issue may be transmitted along with supplemental PDF pages such as the cover, contents or sample article pages.
  • Magazine and news publishers wish to deliver PSV-based XML message containing publication/issue metadata with metadata for each article-level component of the issue along with an external link to a downloadable l PDF for each article from a particular centralized server or CMS.
  • In the future, Magazine and news publishers wish to deliver a PSV-based XML message containing publication/issue metadata with metadata for each article-level component of the issue along with PSV-tagged article content.
