FEB 11: Catch our Lightning Demo at Tools of Change

Tools of ChangeWhen the first Agile PDF sites launched recently, we promised we'd be saying more soon about how the sites were built. Well, the first public demo is coming up at the O'Reilly Tools of Change Conference in NYC:
The Five-minute Publication Site—Part of the TOC Lightning Demos Series, February 11, 7:30-8:30pm, Broadway Ballroom
As the name suggests, we'll be showing just how quickly a publisher can move from PDF files to a flexible, customizable website selling digital content. And of course, if you've got a bit more than five minutes, we'd be happy to answer any questions. We'll be exhibiting immediately after the demos at the TOC Faire, and happy to talk at any point during the rest of the conference. Drop us a note at info@tizra.com.

Why Books in Browsers? A Closer Look at e-book Publishing Software Choices

What’s an ebook?  

For many, the first thought is of a Kindle, Nook or similar device, designed for a single purpose and packed with texts downloaded from a single retailer.  However, it’s easy to forget just how new that notion of ebook publishing software is...or how quickly it’s changing. As broadband connections and computing power become more pervasive, the idea of “books in browsers” or “books in the cloud” is gaining traction.  As has already happened in other media with services like Hulu, Netflix and Spotify, book publishers are starting to see the value in streaming content direct to users as they need it, rather than requiring them to download it to their own device before use.

New Mobile-Optimized Template Simplifies Site Design

Pre-designed templates are increasingly popular as a quick way to get new Tizra sites launched, or to refresh the design of an existing site.  A key driver in both cases is keeping up with increasingly high user expectations for ease of use and visual appeal, particularly on mobile devices. To address these needs, we’ve released a major upgrade to our Bootstrap-based responsive design template. The new version makes it much easier to customize with your own colors and logo, improves mobile interaction with the latest version of the Bootstrap framework, and adds numerous other visual and usability refinements.

Existing Tizra customers can try it out now by selecting the “Bootstrap Responsive Template” in the PRESENTATION area. Or if you’d like to see a quick preview, take a look at this demo site… https://abedemo.tizrapublisher.com

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.

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.
