YUDU Media will be showcasing its YUDU Pro product at Publishing Expo from February 11th to the 12th in stand A10. Publishing Expo is the UK’s leading event for the rapidly changing publishing industry, attracts attendees and exhibitors from all aspects of the industry, and will be held at the Olympia 2 in London.
Coming off its recent win as the Digital Magazine Delivery Company of the Year 2008 from the Periodical Publishers Association (PPA), YUDU Media will display its YUDU Pro product, which is built for traditional publishers looking for a customized application to publish their periodicals digitally. The latest features include easy creation of customized loaders and intro pages for self-publishers through a simple upload of a logo or PDF. Also, there are several new features added to viewer including:
- Highlighting – there is now persistent storage of highlighted boxes that you create in an edition by simply clicking and dragging a box
- Highlight/Notes sidebar – similar to the table of contents thumbnail viewer, this will show a list of all pages containing either highlights or notes along with snippets of the text
- Media Browser – clicking a button in the toolbar will change you into a media browser, where you can watch movies, audio, and animations that are within the edition without having the publication in the background. There will be a film strip style interface at the bottom of the screen with the main item loading in the central space on your monitor
Two of the biggest differentiators for publishers, however, come from the integration between YUDU Pro and YUDU.com. Publishers have the option to send their editions to YUDU.com after publication where they have a free newsstand to reach thousands more readers. In addition, by publishing their editions to YUDU.com, they become much more search friendly and publishers can benefit from the groups, subscriptions, and album functionality.
Stop by our stand at Publishing Expo, meet the team, and see some of the new features that we are unveling. Let us show you what all the buzz is about!
