Success in Digital Music Distribution is Expanded to Deliver Comprehensive
eBooks Digital Bookstore and Full-Featured Product Offering
NEW YORK, NY (April 28, 2010) – MediaNet, the leading service provider for the distribution of premium digital media, introduced today a comprehensive eBook catalog and product offering. The advanced MN Open platform that MediaNet has successfully built for digital music will now support the integration of eBooks using an intuitive API that has been widely adopted by more than 100 application developers, web publishers and online retailers for music offerings.
MediaNet will make available a broad catalog of eBooks including the most popular titles that are available through major physical and online book sellers. These eBooks will initially be offered in the Adobe ePub and PDF formats which are compatible with a wide variety of devices including PC, Mac, Sony Reader, Nook and new entrants such as the Plastic Logic Que, and additional formats will be introduced as needed. Currently there are applications available in the marketplace that will allow for compatibility with the “iDevices” including the iPhone and iPad, similar to the applications available for digital music.
Alan McGlade, CEO of MediaNet stated: “MediaNet has a long track record in the music business with proven success in the digital delivery of premium music content. MediaNet currently powers music metadata, streams and downloads for over one hundred digital retailers and online entertainment destinations. The integration of eBooks comes at the right time for this burgeoning industry and is a natural extension of MediaNet’s digital music roots.”
MediaNet’s eBook service will be accessed by web publishers and application developers through an API built on top of MediaNet’s enterprise class content delivery platform. MediaNet’s API provides complete control over the user experience, functionality, e-commerce and content catalog. Online retailers can rapidly implement more advanced browsing, discovery, and purchase options under their own brand. MediaNet will make available its popular suite of Web Components for the eBooks offering in the next month. With no coding required and a quick time to market, MediaNet’s Web Components allow anyone to place dynamically displayed eBook content anywhere on the Web. This offers a contextually rich experience with eBooks content presented to end users in a relevant manner when they are most interested in an author or subject and likely to transact.
New MediaNet customers can sign-up for the MN Open eBook service by going to www.mndigital.com. They will be able to incorporate a versatile and intelligent download manager to simplify the acquisition and management of eBooks for their end users. Once an eBook service is successfully launched, MediaNet customers will be given access to a sophisticated real-time reporting portal to monitor sales activity.
Alan McGlade added: “The MN Open eBook solution gives web publishers and application developers access to a new form of premium digital content that will increase user engagement and generate sales. Book publishers will see a significant broadening of eBook distribution online with a powerful new marketing platform for titles to be exposed to consumers when they are most likely to purchase them. In addition, MediaNet’s entry in the growing eBooks marketplace will spur innovation by lowering the barrier to entry for a broad range of online retailers and encouraging new ways to present eBooks and touch consumers.”
