Washington Post Digitally Available On Day of Publication

Mar 21, 2003

PEPC Worldwide, a European company based in The Netherlands, has begun digitally distributing The Washington Post to its network of interactive newspaper vending machines. International travelers can find these vending machines, marketed as International Newspaper KiOSKS, at international locations such as hotels, airport concourses, and convention centers in 24 countries throughout the world. Based on a ‘distribute-then-print'-model, PEPC (Publishers Electronic Printing Concept) provides newspaper publishers access to a new channel of distribution for their national and international newspapers. PEPC's distribution method uses a multicast satellite network in an effort to eliminate geographical barriers and create time and cost saving opportunities for newspaper publishers. PEPC's portfolio of available newspapers currently consists of 115 titles from 47 countries. Among the globally available newspapers are US-publications such as the International Herald Tribune, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, The Atlanta Journal & Constitution, The Miami Herald, and The San Francisco Chronicle. International titles include El Pais (Spain), Mainichi Shimbun (Japan), La Stampa (Italy) and Die Welt (Germany).
