Session: Extending the Brand: One Format to Rule Them All
Date: Wednesday, Mar 21
Time: 10:35 AM – 11:20 AM
Track: Magazine
One of the limitations of digital magazines was that every vendor offered a different solution for displaying the paginated content. Today there is still no standard for displaying magazines in a digital format that takes into account key elements including advertising, video and interactivity. Apple, with its hugely successful devices, has helped to create some clarity here but they are not the standard. With many platforms carrying digital versions of magazines today, will there ever be a standard? What would a standard magazine format mean for publishers? How should publishers prepare? These are some of the questions answered by this panel of publishing industry experts.
