Aug. 21 /CSRwire/ - AUSTIN, TX - NewsStand Inc., the leading international digital distributor for newspapers, magazines and other print media, estimates that it has now saved one million trees(a) by delivering exact digital copies of print publications to readers all over the world.

"With the proliferation of the Internet, people can now receive information digitally, putting less of a burden on our forests," commented Kit Webster, president and chief executive officer of NewsStand. "We are pleased that our digital editions have prevented one million trees from being used as a paper source."

With NewsStand, subscribers and single copy buyers of publications can enjoy exact digital copies of the printed editions of their favorite print media on a desktop, laptop or Tablet PC without being connected to the Internet, and without the worry of consuming paper or recycling.

NewsStand is one of the first and most prominent providers in the burgeoning digital delivery space. As the industry grows, NewsStand has developed several metrics to measure its success. Saving one million trees is just one milestone the company celebrates.

Since delivering its first digital edition in June 2001, NewsStand has partnered with more than 80 publishers of newspapers and magazines world wide, distributing issues of top publications to readers in more than 120 countries. The company's proprietary file prepping system, an application that organizes, compresses and encrypts publisher files, processes more than two terabytes of data per month. NewsStand continues to expand its roster of digital publications and improve its proprietary technology. Earlier this year, NewsStand launched the latest version of the NewsStand Reader(tm), a software tool that enables users to download and read their favorite publications. The company also signed on the nation's top-selling newspaper, USA TODAY, as a customer.
