Volume 14, Issue 4 - July/August 2010

Dear Reader

The Digital Age

Here at Window Film magazine our goal is to continually bring you the latest news and innovations that help you stay up-to-date on the ever-changing industry. And to help you stay current we’ve got a lot of plans and developments in store just for you and I am excited to tell you about some of them now.

The world in which we live is becoming more and more digital. In fact, it seems people spend more time with their computers, hand-held devices and other digital media devices than they do a book or a magazine—that’s what everyone used to take along for a plane trip or car ride. Now, people can pack up their Kindles and Sony Readers and still read their favorite books. And with wireless technologies, you can be online most everywhere, even on an airplane in some cases.

With so much digital technology, it may seem as though the future of print media is bleak. Bleak, perhaps, only for those who do not embrace and grow with technology, which is what Window Film magazine is doing for you.

For starters, every issue is now available online in a digital format. No extra room in your carryon for extra magazines? No problem. With the new digital format you can read all the latest news, new product announcements and features from anywhere in the world from your computer at www.windowfilmmag.com. We have received tremendously positive feedback about this new feature. Readers love how they can turn their computers on just about anywhere and read the latest issue.

A digital edition of the magazine, though, is just for starters. We’re taking the news one step further with our brand new monthly newscast. That’s right, we’re hitting the streets to bring you news coverage of some of the industry’s latest projects, news and information, show reports and much more. Through our newscast you can also meet the latest addition to our team, Katie Hodge, who is the new assistant editor. And though you can’t see his face because he’s behind the camera, our director of video production Marshall Stephens is the one putting it all together (some of you may have had a chance to meet Marshall at last year’s SEMA show). Katie and Marshall are working to bring you a cutting-edge newscast that you won’t want to miss each month. And don’t worry that you’ll miss it; we’ll send it right to you by way of our monthly Focus on Film e-newsletter.

And in addition to all of this, don’t forget you can also follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/windowfilmmag.

It’s definitely an exciting time here for us so stay tuned for more announcements and developments.

Ellen Rogers is the editor of Window Film magazine.
