E-Book Systems Chosen to Create Prevention Forum Online Magazine

Readers can now download entire magazine in a dynamic, 3-D page-flipping format

    SANTA CLARA, CA, May 17, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- E-Book Systems, creator of the patented Digital Flip(R) e-publishing technology, announces Prevention First has adopted its 3-D page-flipping FlipViewer(R) Xpress viewer format for its Forum online magazines.

Founded in 1980, Prevention First is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) dedicated to preventing teen alcohol and other drug use, and the many related issues that result from that abuse. They reach millions of teens, parents, educators and others in Illinois.

"We were looking for a cost-effective way to produce our publications and eliminate high print and mail costs due to funding cuts. We are amazed by FlipViewer(R) Xpress Creator - it is relatively easy to use and it produces quality e-publications. The cost is reasonable. And the customer service - from the beginning when I initiated the request to the end when I successfully converted our first e-book - has been great! It is the best medium to use to deliver our publication," said Manjula Batmanathan, Communications Manager of Prevention First.

With E-Book Systems' FlipViewer(R) Xpress solution, readers can now go to and browse through the FlipBook versions of the Prevention Forum Online Magazine. In a matter of moments, readers can view the magazine just as they would appear in print -- with real "flipping" pages plus much more.

"We have published 5 Forum e-book magazines so far and the response from our readers has been great! They like the simplicity, the interactive features - the ability to bookmark items and eliminate paper by saving the e-book on their computers," added Manjula. "One reader even responded by saying - This is cutting edge publishing technology. Another subscriber summed it up in three words - This is awesome!"

E-Book Systems' FlipViewer(R) Xpress Creator software enables publishers and corporations to create and publish realistic page-flipping digital publications ("FlipBooks") easily with just a few mouse clicks. The created FlipBook can then be hosted on any web server for online viewing or distributed through any media (e.g. CD, thumb drive, etc.) for offline viewing. The software accepts any PDF, image and Flash documents as inputs. In addition, multimedia elements like audio and video files can be incorporated into the FlipBook to enhance readers' experience. E-Book Systems' optional Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution also helps to safeguard content providers' intellectual properties.
