Features of the Content Server

Bulk Fulfillment (Preloaded books)

Enable distributors to pre-load and license DRM books for distribution in a school/district using multiple devices. Minimize operational overheads for schools by preloading books on devices. Multiple downloads of the same book onto the device or student login will not be required.

School Model

Allow schools to access books in their own devices through distributor’s content management platform. Students can access books on their own device or pooled school devices.

Publisher recommended pricing

Support a wide range of eBook prices by choosing this option. Enjoy differential pricing on your transactions based on the recommended resource price.

Geo based pricing

Avail reduced transaction fee with differential pricing in emerging Geos. While packaging, use the new parameter to indicate differential pricing along with the location ISO code.

Subscription-based pricing

Charge your distributors a different rate for subscription resources such as journals or periodicals. Enable this feature by generating a subscription id to be used while packaging. Billing system pulls out transactions categorized as subscriptions to apply differential billing rates.

Publish in industry standard file formats

Sell or lend rights-protected eBooks in PDF, EPUB or EPUB3, a reflowing industry-standard format for digital eBooks.

Resource Level DRM for Better Protection

With ACS 6.0, distributors can choose to enforce a stronger DRM on specific books.  When this flag is set, the book can be opened only by readers based on RMSDK 10.0 or above.

Make eBooks available for a specified length of time. Return the content to the lender at the end of the specified period.
