Sponsored Sessions Empire-Hudson

SILK’, developed by NewGen KnowledgeWorks, is a new method to convert any Print PDF file into EPUB — quickly, accurately and easily. In so doing, it allows users to dramatically increase the ability of readers to access materials on the new EPUB-based reading devices. Further, it helps publishers to efficiently get content into an EPUB format from PDF print legacy files.

This session is sponsored by NewGen KnowledgeWorks
