What can BrixWire do?

By combining input and output channels, the news from sources such as editorial systems (CMS), agency feeds, and databases can be exported to print or online systems. This includes Print First or Online First approaches as well as a heterogeneous landscape of editorial systems or a smooth transition to a new CMS or editorial system through a parallel operation.

Here’s how BrixWire integrates different platforms

What is it suitable for?

The platform and the integration of systems, offers several possibilities. Here we present you 6 use cases:

BrixWire use cases

  • Interactive publishing
  • Headless publishing
  • AnyFirst
  • Connection and synchronization of multiple publishing systems
  • Transformation of content to other systems and formats
  • Distributed and collaborative publishing

BrixWire Use Cases

Interactive publishing

The installed input channels deliver stories from various types of sources. Common news feeds from agencies delivered via Directory or FTP are supported, as well as CMS or push notifications against our APIs. The news can be sought with various criteria and can be published to various output channels, like editorial systems or CMS.

Headless publishing

By a scheduler and customer APIs we can provide headless and fully automated publishing, i.e. without user interaction. We do this, e.g. for connecting a DCX with a Woodwing System or by connecting Desknet to a print channel.


Digital First or Print First is no longer the question. We implemented our product to provide flexibility when writing a story. For BrixWire it is not important if a print or online first approach is desired. You can simply define input channels and output publication assignments as you need. You can start publishing where you create content and either publish automatically or leave the decision to an interactive editor.

Connection and synchronization of multiple publishing systems

Via BrixWire, multiple editorial systems can be interconnected or synchronized. This means that it can be used for a heterogeneous landscape on parallel systems, or it can be used for migration scenarios when changing providers.

Transformation of content to other systems and formats

BrixWire is also suitable for the transformation of content coming from publishing remote systems. Examples are Conversion of structured recipe data into web or print articles or integration of Office formats into the workflow.

Distributed and collaborative publishing

Easy connection of offsite workstations for editors, such as home office. BrixWire Allows also collaborative work for team works distributed in different locations.
