Press Release: Data Conversion Laboratory Helps The MIT Press Convert Technical Textbooks into More Readable, Reflowable eBooks
DCL will show the special formatting features of these titles at Booth T21 at Digital Book World, which runs from Jan. 13-15 at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers in New York City.
"We feel that we are presenting these important books in the best possible way as eBooks, respecting all the work the authors and editors did in creating the original books for print," said Trippe. "Thanks to DCL, we're able to launch more of our important computer science books in a reflowable format, providing the best possible digital reading experience for our users."
"At DCL, we have combined our experience in producing high-quality technical publications and brought it to bear on eBook production, in the process raising the bar on what is possible with eBooks," said Mark Gross, President and CEO of DCL. "For The MIT Press, the ability to publish high-quality technical content in a format that is easily readable across the various device types represents a significant revenue opportunity, considering the growing popularity of on-the-go digital content consumption."
