New Tech Company Looks to Reimagine Enhanced Ebooks
Although enhanced ebooks and apps with sound and video have been poorly received by book consumers, Neoglyphic Entertainment, an entertainment technology developer, has created a platform that makes use of data science, gaming technology, machine learning and crowdbased focus groups to create new experiences around traditional storytelling. The company has plans to offer its multimedia platform as a for-pay service to other publishers to create multimedia e-books from their own publishing lists.
Founded in 2014 in California by CEO Dane Glasgow, COO David Ramadge, chief creative officer Christopher Chamberlain, and chief storyteller Aaron Safronoff, Neoglyphic is also a publisher of original content. The company specializes in “visual and descriptive prose works that can be enhanced visually,” said Glasgow.
