As we embark on our 31st year, I’m delighted to announce that the large, loyal community of RW readers and advertisers now can enjoy every issue of Radio World and RW Engineering Extra online in a new digital edition, even as they continue to receive it in print.
RW can be delivered right to your desktop or laptop, no matter where you are. Digital subscribers get all the superb features of our print edition plus searchability, links to manufacturer Web sites and other rich media content.
The digital edition is free; you can choose to subscribe to one or the other, or both. Once you sign up, you’ll receive an e-mail notification when each issue of RW is ready to view. Just click on the link provided and we’re right there in your browser. You can read the issue online, print pages and e-mail favorite articles to colleagues. Live links allow you to click on the Web site of manufacturer in an article or ad, and immediately go to the site. No surfing, pasting in URLs or typing in long addresses; just click.
You can read the Jan. 3 issue on our Web site now. The welcome page of our site also offers a tutorial. You’ll quickly grasp the search function and other features.
To sign up for your free digital subscription, follow the link on our Web site. If you are reading this on the digital version but have not yet subscribed, just click on the sign-up URL.
This is exciting news. For years, readers have asked me for online access to RW articles. We’ve posted highlights for years. But now the entire issue will be available to you.
Our digital edition benefits everyone. Now more readers can enjoy RW. Advertisers will reach a much broader population. Once again IMAS Publishing is taking a leadership role in serving this community.
RW’s sister publications Pro Audio Review, TV Technology and AudioMedia recently added digital editions; and the reaction from their readers has been great.
“I like the format and will soon be able to dispense with the hard copy,” one wrote. “Thanks again for moving ahead on this endeavor. You have my sincere congratulations.”
Another said, “I love the digital edition of the magazine! Since in this business it’s nice to see the advertisements too — I know that probably sounds crazy and hard to believe, but true at least for me — this digital edition is a nice way to get the magazine.” (Actually it’s not hard to believe; many readers tell me that our ads are one of the important reasons they subscribe, to stay informed about what’s on the market.)
This current issue of Radio World is accompanied by our big annual Source Book & Directory. You’ll find it included in the polybag in which this issue was mailed. Our Source Book, too, is now available online, which means you have an industry resource available at your keystrokes as well as your fingertips.
I welcome your comments about the new digital edition. Write to email@example.com. Here’s to a happy, profitable and safe 2007.
