MPS Announces New ePub 3.0 and HTML5 Services

Many Publisher-Clients Are Already Preparing to Reap The Benefits of These Increasingly Important Formats

March 30, 2011 - PRLog -- London - MPS Limited, a Macmillan company, today formally launched its new ePub 3.0 and HTML5 content creation and conversion services. MPS has been working with several major players in the publishing industry to prepare their content for ePub 3.0 and HTML5 so they can take advantage of the many new opportunities in the digital arena that these two formats offer.

The ePub 3.0 standard, due to be released soon, has four major innovations. The format allows rich media and interactivity to be incorporated into regular eBooks, enabling publishers to more efficiently create enhanced eBooks that are compatible with multiple devices. Support for foreign language material, particularly non-Roman scripts, and improved accessibility is set to open up many more eBook markets. And design-intensive books, comics, and magazines will be able to use the ePub standard for the first time thanks to new page layout capabilities.

The HTML5 working standard, which became of urgent interest to the publishing world with the arrival of the iPad in 2010, offers the only cross-platform, cross-device solution for eBook apps. To avoid developing multiple versions of each app, and for greater independence from hardware- and software-makers, publishers are increasingly choosing HTML5 rather than the closed native software of specific devices and platforms.

Rajiv Seth, MD and CEO of MPS, commented: “It was immediately clear to us that these new standards would be of great use to our clients. We invested in R&D activities early on so that we could offer a fully-fledged service as soon as possible. We are delighted to now be able to extend our services for these two technologies to all our existing clients as well as to others who require ePub 3.0 and HTML5 support.”

MPS will be exhibiting at the London Book Fair 2011 between 11th and 13th April at booth X625. MPS is also hosting a talk in the digital theatre with guest speakers Bob Kasher (ePub 3.0 Working Group) and William Chesser (Ingram) on ePub 3.0 and HTML5 on Wednesday 13th April at 1 pm.
