2013 EPUBs 4 Ways
The panel looks at four ways ePubs are being created currently: (1) from XML-first prepared texts using an XSL transform; (2) exported from a desktop publishing application such as InDesign; (3) converted post production from a PDF using an off-the-shelf conversion tool such as Caliber; and (4) converted post production by a third party service provider. What kind of results should you expect? How is quality assurance impacted? The session includes demonstrations and comparison of results. Panelists will discuss the pros and cons, tips-tricks-and-traps of each method.
