Copia Unveils Socially-Connected Content Platform for Educators, Publishers and Students at International CES 2013

 
Third Generation Platform Specifically Designed for Education Marketplace
LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--
 
Copia has unveiled its multi-publisher, socially connected eBook and digital
content platform that can be customized for educational institutions, hardware
partners and retailers. Copia`s platform is especially significant at CES 2013,
where there is a pronounced focus on educational technology and the challenges
of effectively delivering burgeoning digital content to the marketplace. 
 
Copia, a socially driven platform that allows publishers to provide users with a
custom interactive experience fueled by content, community and commerce, is a
pioneer in educational technology. Copia currently has a presence in
approximately 1,000 college campuses and is powering for its partners` K-12
platforms in the United States, Spain, Australia and Brazil. 
 
"Our unified, technologically strong multi-publisher platform provides real
value to both publishing and consumer electronics partners and is years ahead of
competitors who are just now thinking about the challenges of cohesively putting
educational content on personal computers and mobile devices," said Ben
Lowinger, EVP of Copia. "I think our solution is particularly compelling to
educational publishers because it allows them to serve and monetize all types of
content through one platform. Students only need one app to consume all the
content they need or want to maximize the educational benefits of digital
content." 
 
Copia`s content library has undergone explosive multi-genre growth in the form
of e-books, videos, native apps, virtual courses and more. The company`s
platform on display at CES is a third generation product, in a space that is now
garnering significant attention. 
 
"What I find most amazing is the manner in which digital content has captured
the hearts and minds of CES," said Andrew Lowinger, CEO of Copia parent company
DMC Capital Funding. "This is DMC`s 42nd consecutive year exhibiting at CES and
we are thrilled that our company has read the tea leaves and has such a powerful
solution already in place for what is clearly an emerging, important category."
