ACCESS Joins Readium Foundation, Open Source Consortium For Digital Publishing

ACCESS CO., LTD., a global provider of advanced software technologies to the mobile, beyond-PC and digital TV markets, today announced it joined the Readium Foundation, a consortium of companies committed to establishing electronic publishing standards which incorporates the Readium Project for EPUB ® 3 applications. Overseen by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), the initial Readium Project had been an open source initiative dedicated to accelerating adoption of EPUB ® 3. A member since the project was launched in February 2012, ACCESS has contributed to EPUB ® 3 development and standards formulation. Moving forward, ACCESS intends to support all efforts toward the commercial application of Readium as an EPUB 3 reference viewer.

Readium.org open source initiative today announces its evolution into a formal consortium of member companies fostering a community of open source projects, including a new Readium™ SDK project developing a commercial-grade rendering engine for EPUB ® 3, optimized for native applications.

The Readium Foundation maintains licenses of Readium and develop and popularize the Readium SDK viewer platform and Readium Web EPUB viewer operating on browsers and plug-ins. ACCESS has contributed to Readium development by supplying its NetFront TM BookReader EPUB Edition engine, developed in-house, to the Readium Project. As part of the Readium Foundation, ACCESS plans to enhance and redistribute Readium SDK technology.

NetFront™ BookReader EPUB Edition, which supports EPUB 3, is capable of faithfully reproducing a wide range of complex content specific to Japanese text, such as vertical text, readings alongside Kanji characters, and Japanese line breaks. By employing the industry-standard rendering engine WebKit, consumers will be able to enjoy next-generation HTML5 rich media content as well.

“ACCESS has contributed substantially to the development of Japanese writing expressions and multi-linguistic functions of UI for Readium. I believe ACCESS will continue to play a key role for the Readium Foundation,” said Bill McCoy, IDPF Executive Director.
