Page-Rendering Software for eBooks and Manufacturers
- Tuesday, 25 November 2008
Rapidly evolving eBook technology promises to deliver books, catalogs, newspapers, or magazines anywhere electronically on compact, easy-to-carry readers. eBooks face challenges that physical books do not: file security during transmission, speed of transmission, and the risk of piracy. The ReadAllOver™ system is a proprietary dual solution of compressed file format and rendering software engineered for the next generation of eBooks. ReadAllOver is based on proprietary halftone algorithms, printing to the screen in much the same way as presently is done with ink and paper. The algorithms offer improved edge detail allowing the entire page, images, and typography to be processed at once. The result is a more print-like look and feel.
When this image-based approach is combined with a Unicode-based text file (for search purposes), it offers reduced file sizes when compared to .pdf. When compared to other popular image formats, ReadAllOver provides sharper typography with fewer artifacts while remaining competitive with smooth gradation changes and small file size.
