The global digital production platform for publishers and authors announces cooperation with ClipDealer, an online agency for royalty-free images and multimedia.
Hamburg, 10 February 2015: The relationship between eBooks in Motion (www.ebooksinmotion.com) and ClipDealer (http://en.clipdealer.com) is dedicated to accelerating the growth of media-rich e-publications via a cost effective way. eBooks in Motion customers receive a 25% discount to ClipDealer’s inventory of over 30 million high quality images, videos and audio files.
The recently launched Software-as-a-Service based technology of eBooks in Motion addresses two basic problems within the publishing industry: Cheep conversion tools lack the desired quality, outsourced services are time and cost expensive. When it comes to multimedia eBooks, common production practices involve costly manual labor. eBooks in Motion automates this process and enables publishers to produce flawless eBooks for multiple reading devices – in-house vs. outsourcing.
The integration of images, graphics or video dynamically into an eBook requires media with the according publishing rights. ClipDealer offers millions of royalty-free, high-quality images, video clips, music, or vector graphics. Usage is independent of location, volume or time. Media can be purchased as single items, via corporate accounts or subscription. In addition, customers of eBooks in Motion receive after their registration 25% discount for the next 2 months.
“We are very excited to support the next generation reading experience, through the automated production of dynamic media enhanced eBooks by eBooks in Motion”, states Markus Hein, Managing Director of ClipDealer.
“Giving our community access to a vast volume of high quality media in order to support the written word though ClipDealer’s inventory is a key element,” says Michael J. Fisher, CEO of eBooks in Motion. “We encourage our customers to test and use this service by providing this special discount.”
