The First Open Exchange Format
for Enhanced Tablet Publications

Introducing OpenEFT
The Challenge!

production, delivery & display
EFT = Enhanced for Tablet

Open = freely available to all
Design Principles
Based on open standards
Based on IDEAlliance specs
Leverage emerging technologies
Simple & straightforward to implement
No disruption to existing workflows
Support today's interactive enhancements
Enable new enhancements over time
Support all highly-designed publications

At A Glance
High production costs

Labor intensive

One-off digital editions

Economies of scale remain elusive ...
All across the media value chain – whether
it’s CTOs of magazines, production staff
in the trenches, or developers of digital newsstands – the absence of a standard open format is believed to be inhibiting the development of innovative production tools to support the creative needs of
publishers and advertisers.
OpenEFT is the first open format specification specifically designed for the exchange and rendering of enhanced tablet magazines.
