Sharp developed next-generation e-book format

Sharp today announces, that has developed a next-generation e-book format – XMDF(eXtending Mobile Document Format), which promises to include video and audio content, in addition to current embedded text and pictures and to contribute in the creation of a new market for e-books.

The current XMDF format has been commercialized in 2001 and is used in e-book contents including Japanese novels and manga comics. With next-generation XMDF, Sharp plans to “enhance users’ e-book lifestyle” with new better user interface technology and to expand it not only to phones and e-readers, but also to PCs, game devices, TVs and other products. Sharp is also planning later this year to launch compatible reader devices to enter the e-book market.
