Creating multi-rendition PDF articles for iOS devices

Publishers face a challenge in that iPads and iPhones include both SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition) models. One approach is to create a single folio that works in all models. However, some content appears pixelated on the HD device, and some overlays behave differently. Another approach is to create different renditions for both the SD and HD models. However, renditions are somewhat difficult to maintain for some publishers, and single-issue apps do not support renditions.
With the v23 release, you can create a single folio (v23 or later only) with PDF articles that look great and perform well on both SD and HD iOS models. When you create an article with a PDF image format, the PDF images now have a higher resolution than in previous version. In addition, you can perform the following tasks to create a multi-rendition PDF article:
Use a vector format for slideshows and scrollable frames
Use different interactive assets for SD and HD devices
When you select a slideshow or scrollable frame object, the Folio Overlays panel displays an Export Format in PDF Articles option that lets you choose either Raster or Vector. If you select Vector, content—especially text—in slideshows and scrollable frames appears crisper on HD devices. However, vector content takes longer to load than raster content. For best results, use the Vector option for text-heavy content and Raster for image-heavy content.

Using vector format for a slideshow
For panoramas, image sequences, videos, pan and zoom images, and audio controller skin, you can include two different sets of assets. To do this, you create a subfolder called “HD” in the folder containing the SD assets. In the HD folder, use high-resolution images with identical names to the SD assets. In the Folio Overlays panel, link to the folder containing the SD assets. The viewer on the SD iPad uses one set of assets, and the HD iPad viewer uses the assets in the HD folder.

To use different panorama assets for HD and SD iPad models, create an HD folder containing high-resolution images with names identical to the lower resolution images.
For videos and pan & zoom images, you can create a single HD folder that includes multiple high-resolution files. For example, if your Links folder includes polarbear.jpg and video01.mp4, you can create an HD folder in the Links folder with high-resolution versions of the polarbear.jpg and video01.mp4 files.

Note that including two sets of assets for overlay types increases the folio size.

It isn’t necessary to create separate SD and HD versions for every overlay type. For example, some publishers create source files for image sequence overlays that fall somewhere between SD and HD resolutions, such as images with a 112 effective ppi. If a high-resolution video plays on an SD iPad, there is no reason to create an additional low-resolution video.
