News Release: Tizra Announces an Open Platform for Interactive Publishing at Tools of Change

Web-based software lets publishers build interaction and community around their content, without being locked into proprietary tools and devices.

February 13, 2013 (New York, NY)--Tizra announced today at the O'Reilly Tools of Change Conference a combination of upgraded user interfaces and content management tools that provide publishers with a new option for publishing interactive digital content.  The system builds on the open standards of the web, providing an alternative to proprietary "walled garden" systems, which require publishers to commit to authoring tools, viewing devices and distribution channels controlled by specific vendors.

New viewer puts multimedia in context.
The new platform being demonstrated at the conference includes a completely re-designed web-based content viewing interface, which improves usability and compatibility across all the most popular web browsers and viewing devices, as well as enhanced linking and the ability to deliver access-controlled files in any digital format.

"Our belief is that it's critical for publishers to be able to reach their readers directly on whatever devices those readers are comfortable with, and to be able to create content with the tools that work best for their authors and creative teams," says Tizra CEO David Durand.  "Tizra's approach is to make everything we do compatible with the web and other open standards, so publishers have access to the biggest audience and the best tools."

Tizra's commitment to empowering publishers and authors in the development of vibrant online communities around their content recently prompted O'Reilly General Manager & Publisher Joe Wikert to write that the company supports "exactly the habits that publishers need to develop in order to build successful digital businesses."  Full text of his remarks is available at...
