|Information Today, Inc. (ITI), publisher of EMedia magazine,
has announced that it will relaunch the publication in August as EMedia:
The Digital Studio Magazine. ITI also announced that 30,000 subscribers
to Knowledge Management magazine, which ceased publication last
fall, will now receive subscriptions to the ITI-published
magazine. In another release, ITI announced that Information Science
Abstracts (ISA) has a new editorial advisory board.
Editorial changes to EMedia offer expanded coverage of the digital
studio environment, including content creation workstations and all the
advanced technology in today's digital media studios, such as nonlinear
editing solutions; high-resolution display hardware; asset storage and
retrieval; audio/video encoders; CD/DVD authoring, recording, duplication,
and printing; visual effects software; and more.
"EMedia will significantly expand to cover the studio environment
and workstations that people use to manipulate audio, video, and imagery,"
said Adam Pemberton, EMedia publisher and founder. "Our purview
in the past has been limited to peripheral technologies that creative and
technical people use, such as DVD recorders and the software that drives
them. We are expanding on that by covering the entire digital media studio,
the workstations, and all the parts that go into them. The past 18 months
have revealed a trend toward integrated software applications, such as
DVD authoring and video editing. The digital studio is also a converging
environment for media creation and production. Now, EMedia: The Digital
Studio Magazine is all about this environment, whether it's in a corporate
multimedia department, commercial video/audio/post facility, or a service
The August issue will go on sale July 31. Now in its 15th year of publication,
EMedia will relaunch with a redesign of the contents and departments,
larger trim size, and heavier paper.

Knowledge Management magazine, formerly published by Freedom
Technology Group, ceased publication last fall. Since then its ownership
has been pursuing an alternative for its subscribers. For years,
Management magazine andKMWorld magazine were "friendly competitors,"
so it was a logical decision to provide Knowledge Management subscribers
with KMWorld, according to the announcement. Both publishers feel
it is important that Knowledge Management subscribers continue to
receive a free subscription to a magazine that is packed with the information
they need to move forward with their KM initiatives.
"We welcome the former Knowledge Management subscribers to the
KMWorld community," said Tom Hogan, president and CEO of Information
Today, Inc. "The fields of knowledge management, content management, and
enterprise portals are exploding, and we feel very privileged to be publishing
the only magazine dedicated to telling their stories."

According to the announcement, each member of ISA's new advisory
board will play an important role in advising on the continuing development
and improvement of ISA over the next 2 years.
The board members are April Bohannan, head of cataloging at Virginia
Beach Public Library; Michael Koenig, dean of the College of Information
and Computer Science, and dean and professor at the Palmer School of Library
