Elsevier Extends Content Offering to Entertainment Technology Professionals

Elsevier integrates Digital Video, Embedded Systems and Telecommmunications Book titles from CMP Technology

Burlington, MA, August 21st, 2006 – Elsevier is pleased to announce the purchase of the Digital Video, Embedded Systems and Telecommunications book titles from CMP Technology, a division of CMP Media LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UK-based United Business Media plc. Included in the purchase are trademark licensing and co-marketing partnerships which will allow broader distribution of information to entertainment technology professionals around the globe.

CMP Technology’s books and authors, together with the licensing and co-marketing ties with DV Magazine, give Elsevier’s Focal Press a strong foothold with this young, rapidly growing professional and consumer audience. Elsevier’s Newnes imprint, already the leading publisher of books for embedded systems design engineers, also gains a number of seminal titles and access to this information-hungry technology sector.

"It's great to join forces with Elsevier’s Focal Press. The synergy between DV magazine and Focal Press is very powerful, and we're excited by the opportunity to serve the information needs of the video market with the expanded reach afforded by this new relationship," said Dominic Milano, Editor-in-Chief of DV magazine. "I think our readers will be pleased."

“In today’s rapidly changing information environment, Elsevier must continue to create and acquire world-class content which best meets the information needs of our customers,’’ said Jim DeWolf, Vice President, Publishing, Science & Technology Books, Elsevier. “The CMP Technology books are an important complement to Elsevier’s already outstanding portfolio in this area. We want to expand the delivery of cutting edge information where it is needed most—in the hands of technology professionals.’’
