Hanbit Media says e-books are actually paper-based books behind the veneer of digital formats. It is like putting new wine into old wineskin and it is not going to work anymore as Hanbit has finally unveiled its easy-to-use e-book “Real Time”
SEOUL, Aug 10 (Whowired) -- Once registered, the e-books now available on the market are not easy to be modified. In some cases, the lead time for e-books to be digitally published would take up to a month. With the backlog of book releases, any updates or second edition should be put on the back burner. That is exactly why paper-based books converted into e-books fail to fully utilize the unique features of e-books, emphasized an expert in the IT Publishing industry.
That's the way a new concept called “Fast Fashion” has been introduced for the book publishing industry; updating a book even long after the release could be possible, cutting through lengthy processes and complicated practices of the conventional book publishing industry. The efforts came to the fruition with the launch of Hanbit e-book “Real Time” last month.
Hanbit Media launched Hanbit e-book Real Time service—e-book service for IT developers. Hanbit e-book focuses on a new format of e-books to provide readers with fast-changing IT technologiesway before its paper-based counterparts.
An industry watcher said the focus has always been on the optimal e-book environment for readers and the DRM-free content could be downloaded and read at any digital devices.
They are now working on embedding images or videos, and to make PDF files into the EPUB format. The big picture is to build a solid base of writers for the company to become more like a service provider connecting readers and writers with e-books. The publishing house in Korea was categorized as a manufacturer, but Hanbit is changing the way of delivering book contents blurring the boundary between service providers and publishers as a manufacturer.
