DNP and Impress R&D Develop Software to Centralize e-Book Management

Tokyo, July 18, 2011 (JCN) - Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) and Impress R&D, a member of the Impress Group engaged in data communications related media operations aimed at corporations, have jointly developed a new e-book interface that helps maximizes reader convenience.

The newly developed interface allows readers to take e-books with different text formats and viewers purchased from multiple e-book sales sites and create a book shelf where centralized management can be performed.

E-books exist in a variety of text formats and viewers, and the terminal devices readers use when reading them are also different. In addition to the text format, viewer and terminal device, usage may also differ depending on the e-book store, and book shelves designed to organize and store e-books tend to be offered on a store-by-store basis.

As a result, in cases where readers purchase-books from different e-book stores, it is often necessary to use multiple book shelves that follow rules unique to each e-book store. Nor is there any common rule for the use of book marks or features such as underlining. It was against this backdrop that our two companies decided to develop a new interface to integrate e-book reading environments.

It is planned to offer this service free of charge in the interests of promoting the development of an open environment for e-book trade.
