ArcaMax Publishing, a leading provider of consumer syndicated content by email, has secured a patent for publishing digital media content in multiple segments based on user preferences.
The tremendous adoption of tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices has changed the that way readers enjoy books and other content, which has created a wide variety of applications for this technology.
ArcaMax announced last week that the company received a patent for publishing digital media content in multiple segments based on user preferences. This is a vital component in delivering book content by email and critical step forward for the rapidly changing book industry.
The patent is known as a “segmented media publishing system” and is designed to deliver segments of a larger work, such as chapters of a book, by email based on the reading schedule of the individual user.
“The technology means a reader may be in the middle of a book and want to receive the next chapter by email at a later time,” ArcaMax Publishing CEO Scott Wolf said.
The patented technology allows ArcaMax to serve the user who may not want to read an entire book in one setting. The reader may re-read chapters or skip ahead in the book and set the ensuing email to deliver where he or she left off.
“We are proud of getting this patent for a unique and useful piece of technology. With the advent of tablets, smartphones, and other digital devices, consumers are enjoying content through digital means more than ever. We believe the potential applications are wide-ranging,” Wolf said.
