DNAML Releases New 'PDF to ePub' Software
(Sydney — September 15, 2009) DNAML, an eBook technology house has announced the release of a software called ‘PDF to ePub’. Publishers, authors, conversion and design houses can now convert an unlimited number of PDF eBooks into the industry standard ePub format in just six simple steps.
With DNAML’s PDF to ePub ‘game changing’ software it is possible to achieve four essential goals simultaneously:
1. Publishers can dramatically reduce the costs of PDF to ePub conversion, making in-house conversion a real possibility for the very first time.
2. The conversion process is quick and requires neither technical nor programming knowledge. (A typical trade title will take 2 to 5 minutes to convert).
3. The reduced PDF to ePub conversion cost provides content owners new options including in-house and onshore conversion. This in turn provides greater control over digital content.
4. In-house conversion dramatically accelerates time to market for trade titles, enabling publishers and authors to promptly submit latest eBook releases to distribution networks.
Adam Schmidt, DNAML’s CEO said: “DNAML is proud to be first to market with a professional solution in PDF to ePub which solves a crippling eBook adoption problem.”
Michael Smith, Executive Director of the International Digital Publishing Forum said: “We are excited there is an additional option for Publishers to create EPUB and help introduce more titles into the digital supply chain. A critical mass of content is necessary for continued growth in the eBook space and EPUB is designed to help facilitate the flow of content through sales and distribution channels to get titles to market.”
The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) maintains industry standards for text-based digital reflowable books and publications and developed the EPUB standard.
“The current common practice is for most conversion houses, publisher service providers, distributors, publishers and authors to outsource the conversion to India, Vietnam, Philippines, Russia and other perceived ‘cost effective’ outsourcing countries,” said Schmidt.
