Nxtbook Media, LLC ( transforms the way people read on the Internet. Working with magazine publishers, catalog publishers, and corporate marketers, they find ways to leverage traditional print content for optimized use online. The Nxtbook team provides publishers with a service that reduces their costs while simultaneously expanding the reach and effectiveness of their content. In doing so, the readers of digital editions enjoy a media-rich experience that causes them to return to participating publishers' digital editions and Web sites time and time again. The Challenge Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, John Snyder realized that his many readers on the Gulf Coast were unable to receive their traditional printed copy of the MARINE LOG by mail. He found that people were using the Internet to communicate during the crisis and decided to launch a digital replica edition to help reach those loyal readers who were so deeply affected by the storm. Meeting the Challenge John Snyder was introduced to Nxtbook’s technology platform by his parent company, Simmons-Boardman. He was impressed with the Nxtbook technology and user interface. The compression technology kept file sizes manageable for distribution. The rich media capability allows them to add audio and video to their articles and advertising. MARINE LOG also likes to bundle whitepapers and brochures with the digital edition and has had several sponsored issues. ©2008 Gilbane Group, Inc. 25
