May 2nd conference call on the new IDPF e-book standards
Might your business or industry be affected by the new IDPF e-book standards? Nick Bogaty, the Executive Director of the IDPF has asked us to share the following information for those that are interested...
"On Wednesday, May 2nd at 2pm EST/11am PST, the IDPF will host an hour long teleconference call to discuss two new eBook standards and how these standards will affect your business and our industry. You do not have to be an IDPF member to participate in this call.
The two specifications are OCF 1.0 (OEBPS Container Format) and OPS 2.0 (Open Publication Structure). OCF 1.0 was officially approved by the IDPF membership in October 2006 and OPS 2.0 has just been submitted to the IDPF output process by the OPS Working Group.
The teleconference will be led by OPS Working Group Chair, Garth Conboy of eBook Technologies, who will provide details to answer the following questions and more:
* What is OPS 2.0 and OCF 1.0 and what is the relationship between the two?
* What is the relationship between "OEB" and OPS 2.0?
* Are OPS 2.0 and OEB compatible? Can I do both at once?
* What are the conversion and distribution implications for publishers (and conversion houses) to produce OPS 2.0 and OCF 1.0 files?
* What does it mean for a software company/reading system to adopt OCF1.0/OPS 2.0?
* What do OPS 2.0 and OCF 1.0 mean for consumers?
Detailed information on the specifications can be found at www.idpf.org/forums.
The teleconference call will be limited to 50 participants to manage the call effectively and we ask that you RSVP your accepted attendence to nbogaty<AT>idpf.org by Thursday, April 26th. Attendence will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. The call will last up to an hour with 30 to 45 minutes from Garth and questions. If we exceed our attendance limit, we will schedule an additional alternate date(s). After we receive all RSVPs, we will forward dial-in information and an agenda for the call."
