This is a courtesy pre-release announcement for our blog and Twitter followers.
The AZARDI Interactive Engine is about to be launched for free use in any ePub 3 or publisher static website. You may have seen it's capabilities with EPUB3 UNLEASHED, and other demonstration books. We have created hundreds of ePub3 books in the past few months for commercial delivery for international learning publishers like OUP. That includes fixed layout, font embedded, interactive, audio books with high levels of interactive components.
Below is a link to the announcement page. It is still in draft format, so don't criticize the documentation (yet), but we are working hard and furious to address the interactive requirements and capabilities of ePub3 for publishers and to make it as "easy" as advanced interactive content should be.
The good news is it works in AZARDI (of course), iBooks and Readium. It also works with more proprietary and locked-off readers such as Vital Source.
Take a peek at what we are planning here. AZARDI Interactive Engine goes public.
Expect the full kitset to be available by the end of the month. It's exciting times in the world of digital publishing.
