hipix® Brings the Antique Collectors Club Best Selling Photography and Art Books to the App Store in Stunning Image Quality.

The Antique Collectors’ Club ACC Editions and Human Monitoring are delighted to announce the release of the ACC Art Bookstore to Apple’s App Store for iPad and iPhone devices. The “ACC Art Bookstore” application includes digital versions of many of the publisher’s best-selling titles. It enables users to search and download Antique Collectors’ Club and ACC Editions titles across different genres including antiques, art, design, fashion and photography. Enhanced with new hipix® technology, the app breaks new ground in image quality.

Illustrated books sometimes contain hundreds of images, but there isn't always enough space on the page to show each image in its full glory. The hipix® technology allows the reader to instantaneously open illustrated images in tens of mega pixels, avoiding any blur or distortion, while retaining relatively small download sizes.

James Smith, Sales Director at the Antique Collectors’ Club said, "Conversion of our existing content into hipix® enabled books was a surprisingly simple process that required very little effort on our side, whilst providing extremely high value for our readers. The quality of the images in the digital books is stunning. We expect to expand our digital offering extensively in the upcoming months".

“Our hipix® Digital Publishing Ecosystem, provides publishers a unique and complete solution. hipix® provides a superior user experience while maintaining a fraction of the download sizes.” said Ira Dvir, The VP R&D and Co-Founder of Human Monitoring. “The hipix® Storefront Solution, allows publishers to freely control and monitor bookstore content, as well as reader preferences, while readers discover and enjoy the high end content in a single mobile application.”

The ACC Art Bookstore is available through Apple’s App Store:

The Antique Collectors' Club and ACC Editions are world renowned publishers of definitive and beautifully illustrated books on antiques, decorative arts, fashion and design. The Antique Collectors' Club celebrates its 47th anniversary in 2013 and remains independently owned.

Established in 2005 by veterans of the video compression industry, Human Monitoring Ltd. is the developer of the US patented hipix® technology and hipix® Storefront Solution.
The company also released its hipix® Art Initiative, which includes high resolution Art Albums. A few of the Antique Collectors Club books will also be available through the hipix Art Initiative.
