Just when you thought you had it all figured out… a major revision to the defacto eBook format standard, EPUB, is lurking around the corner.
Chartered with expanding EPUB to support new media enhancements, global content, and HTML5, just to name a few, the EPUB 3 Working Group is debating the final specs and soon expected to ratify a new standard. With members such as Apple, Google, and Adobe representing diverse interests, what can publishers expect?
Hear from Bill McCoy, the Executive Director of IDPF (The International Digital Publishing Forum), with specifics on the draft standard, and Eric Freese, a member of the EPUB 3 Working Group, who will outline what’s new, what’s still on the table, which are the most hotly contested issues, and what ramifications publishers can expect from the outcomes of the discussions. Learn how the standard impacts the major device manufacturers and the larger eBook ecosystem.
Join us for this one hour, complimentary webcast to get a handle on the EPUB 3 standard and a head-start on preparing your eBook operations to take full advantage.
Tyler Ruse, Libre Digital’s Vice President of Publisher Services will be moderating the session.
