Le vieux reve de l’édition numérique

| 0 Commentaires

Un article interessant qui retrace un peu l’histoire du journal électronique,
et des possibilités prometteuses de TabletPC de conserver une trace numérique de documents manipulables comme un papier. Devant l’opportunité de faire avancer des projets d’éditions Numériques, le LA Times prévoit de lancer une édition numérique de son journal, qui bien entendu sera très agréable à lire, consulter et compulser( copier coller, ect … sous un tabletPC.

 » Los Angeles Times pilot edition proposed for early next year (subscription or single copy) will use Fidler’s « Kent » format (for Kent State University, where he directs the Institute for CyberInformation): three types of hyperlinked, near-magazine-size pages, because « scrolling is something people find annoying. [It’s] very difficult to find where you are on the page. » Along the right are navigation tabs denoting sections.

Looking like section fronts, summary pages preserve the experience of browsing a newspaper. Headlines and summaries link to full-text content pages with a consistent three-column format and the latest type technology, ensuring « no difficulty in reading the full story, » said Fidler. Creating the third page type, a table of contents and advertiser index, is semiautomated.

Clicking on unobtrusive ads or images can either link to full-page ads and larger images or launch video clips — news footage or ad content such as movie trailers. Until compression improves, video remains minimal to keep download time short. Full text of the L.A. Times’ national edition occupies 10 to 12 megabytes, Fidler said. With sound and video, the edition may not exceed 25 MB. »
