New York, NY (PRWEB) January 01, 2012
Copia Interactive, LLC, creator of one of the largest, independent, full-‐featured digital content platforms, announced today the general availability of its Copia platform at http://www.thecopia.com.
Copia is a single software platform that unites content, community, collaboration, and commerce to deliver digital content across an array of devices. It is the only platform designed to provide a single portal to all of a users’ digital content and social activity, creating a unified experience unrivaled in the market. In addition to Tier-‐1 content availability, Copia users enjoy a richer, deeper engagement with content and community, driving greater consumption — and greater revenues for Copia and its partners. Copia’s “Powered by Copia” white-‐label solutions bring the advantages of its platform to Copia’s partners in the media, hardware, telecom and other related industries.
“Copia gives users the best of what the social media and digital content worlds have to offer”, states Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia Interactive. “Copia’s main goal is to make content consumption more social”, he adds.
A Single Portal to Digital Content and Social Activity
Copia is the first platform to seamlessly merge social media and digital content, with features such as a digital bookstore with a vast content catalog, note-‐taking and sharing, group chat, online book clubs, library comparison, activity feeds, unique self-‐publishing tools, user recommendations, a proprietary community value system, and more. Copia users enjoy a singular, wholly shareable on-‐line experience — all their media, all their friends, all in one application.
Copia is a self-‐contained social network that links to existing Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts as well, so users can easily share content across major social networks and connect with others with similar tastes and interests.
Copia has a substantial content catalog, currently featuring over 9.2 million electronic and physical books and 9 million songs, as well as over 15,000 digital textbooks from leading educational publishers. But Copia is about more than just books: it has been developed to aggregate content from a multiplicity of sources — magazines, newspapers, music, games, movies, and more — into a seamless user experience.
Copia is a hardware-‐neutral platform: multiple devices offer the same content experience, and users can choose their own hardware. Users can access content on all their devices, and Copia keeps everything up to date through the cloud. Copia is available now on a multiplicity of devices, including desktop readers, iPad, Windows 7 touch, Android tablets, and the Blackberry Playbook.
Copia (http://www.thecopia.com) unites content, community, collaboration, and commerce in a single software platform to deliver multi-‐genre digital media across an array of computing, mobile, personal entertainment, and eReading devices. With Copia, users engage more deeply with content and community through an innovative, rich, and unified interface — all their media, all their friends, all in one application. Copia also provides highly customized, co-‐branded, white-‐label solutions through its “Powered by Copia” program.
The Copia platform is developed by Copia Interactive, LLC — a portfolio company of DMC Capital Funding, LLC (http://www.dmccapitalfunding.com), the venture capital arm of the DMC group of companies. The DMC group comprises top enterprise and consumer technology companies with a heritage that spans more than 50 years’ investing in, developing, manufacturing, and distributing market-‐leading consumer-‐electronics products.
Copia is exhibiting at the 2012 International CES in Las Vegas at booth 11612 in the Central Hall.
