Integration New Media, Inc. (INM), a leader in building engaging digital experiences, today announced a new DVD project with Kalmbach Publishing. INM has helped Kalmbach build “75 Years of Model Railroader” a searchable DVD archive of over 900 issues of Model Railroader magazine.
Model Railroader magazine has been the leading authority on building and operating layouts for more than 75 years. Published since 1934, every issue is chock full of step-by-step how-to projects, color photos, product reviews, and expert tips and techniques.
The DVD collection includes over 100,000 pages of content that has been digitally scanned and captured for on-screen delivery in its original format, exactly as it appears on paper. The pages include all stories, photos, drawings, advertisements, and original page numbers.
“The beauty of the DVD collection is that readers have immediate access to 75 years of model train history, even the out-of-print and hard to find issues,” said Neil Besougloff, editor of Model Railroader magazine. “They can search through the entire archives in just a few clicks, read content on-screen and even print off pages on their home computer. This collection is the perfect holiday gift for model railroading enthusiasts.”
To create this DVD set, the printed pages of Model Railroader magazine were digitally scanned and captured in PDF format. More than 100,000 magazine pages are shown under one searchable interface in their original format, exactly as they were originally printed on paper. The pages include all stories, photos, drawings, advertisements, and even the original page numbers. Not only can readers follow the hobby of model railroading through 75 years of development, they can also see firsthand the advances in printing and publishing technology throughout the decades.
The Model Railroader 75 Year Collection is now available for online pre-order through the Kalmbach Bookstore for $199.95. Copies are expected to ship by December 9, 2011.
