Video: Looking at other publishing solutions

In the previous movie I introduced you to three of the more popular distribution channels of small-scale and self publishers, but what about publishers with a higher volume of digital content? Let's explore some of the distribution options available to them. The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is a set of InDesign plug-ins for creating and publishing eBook apps for tablet devices. It is specific to Adobe InDesign and will only publish eBook applications. The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite offers three levels of service: single edition for smaller publishers, or professional and enterprise editions for mid- to large-scale publishers.
