Adobe DPS announces strong readership metrics, free license to .folio file specification
« Today, Adobe made several announcements about the Adobe® Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) – where it is today and where it’s heading. And the news is exciting. With more than 150 million digital publications built with DPS downloaded – some 80% of all digital issues on mobile devices – DPS has been changing the way publishers and companies connect to their readers and customers around the world.
And even better, we’re offering a free license to our .folio format for digital magazines in 2014. This free license will enable any newsstand licensee to implement its own .folio viewer and increase the availability of DPS magazine apps. »
.folio to be Offered Under Free License
« Adobe has also announced that it will publish the technical specification for the .folio format under a free license in the first quarter of 2014. The .folio file format has become the de facto standard for highly interactive digital publications. Because of the fast growth of the digital publishing industry, and the increase in marketplaces that want to leverage .folio, Adobe believes that the industry is better served through the licensing of the .folio specification.
This is exciting news for our commercial publishing customers who will be able to extend their content through a variety of marketplaces that accept the .folio file format specification. Publishing to .folio as a universally accepted digital publishing file format will allow magazine publishers to more efficiently produce digital content for mobile devices by eliminating the need to create and publish interactive, digital content in multiple, individual proprietary file formats supported by each unique marketplace. Newsstands and marketplaces that accept the license for the .folio file format specification will be able to create their own native viewers capable of displaying digital magazines available in the .folio file format. »href="http://blogs.adobe.com/digitalpublishing/2013/12/readership-metrics-open-folio-format.html" data-color-override="false" data-hover-color-override="false" data-hover-text-color-override="#fff">Button Text href="http://bloc-notes-arzhur.blogspot.fr/2013/12/adobe-dps-le-folio-en-licence-libre.html" data-color-override="false" data-hover-color-override="false" data-hover-text-color-override="#fff">Button Text
