While publishers have rapidly increased their plans for multi-media e-book titles, they have grappled with finding the most effective system for creating these new content mediums. The MotherVook 1.0 tool addresses this need by providing a system that can cost-effectively scale to all production needs for multi-media e-books from multiple publishers and partners. Vook's industry leading digital publishing technology has been developed through the multi-media e-book titles it has created with some of the world's largest publishing houses and media companies, including Simon and Schuster, HarperCollins and Hachette Fillipacci Media.
Vook's partnership with TurnHere will provide the company with a significant video capacity, a key element to the multi-media e-book experience. TurnHere's network of more than 12,000 professional filmmakers across more than 70 countries produces broadcast-quality online video content for companies across the media, publishing, travel, local and small business industries.
"We are entering an explosive time for the digital publishing industry; multi-media e-books will be coming out at a significantly increased pace and we've developed the MotherVook 1.0 tool to be able to scale to the quickly growing plans for thousands of new titles," said Bradley Inman, CEO and founder of Vook. "Our partnership with TurnHere and development of the MotherVook 1.0 tool position Vook to be the leader in the publishing industries' transition to new frontier of multi-media digital publishing."
