Sequoia Selects Digital World Services To Sell Digital Content

Oct 08, 2002

Digital World Services, a digital distribution solutions company, and Sequoia Peripherals, an independent developer of retail systems for college bookstores, have joined forces in an effort to enable secure digital content distribution through the ePOS College Store Network, operated by Sequoia. Under the arrangement, Digital World Services and Sequoia will enable online college retailers to expand their offerings of physical goods to include digital textbooks, ebooks, audio books, music, and educational software. More than 200 sites across North America will be launched by the end of the year, starting with Princeton, San Jose State, and University of Puget Sound. To enable the secure distribution of digital content, Sequoia will use Digital World Services' ADo2RA system, a content independent digital distribution infrastructure, that is designed to enable content providers and retailers to package, protect, and deliver digital content--books, music, reports, and videos--across multiple devices. ADo2RA's architecture integrates DRM technologies, including Adobe and Microsoft. Initially, the ePOS offering will focus on educational content, starting with Random House's Modern Library catalogue. Additional books, learning materials, and music will be added in the months ahead.
