by Sony Pro Team 04/16/2015, in Sony Professional

Sony’s demonstrations of Digital Paper at ABA Tech Show 2015 highlight the benefits of paperless technology for the legal industry. The device’s most recent enhancement includes integration and compatibility with the newest version of Worldox Web (2.0), which provides browser-based mobile access to Worldox content.

Sony will exhibit Digital Paper with Worldox at ABA Tech Show. In addition to Worldox Web 2.0 compatibility, Sony will demonstrate the new feature upgrades that have been added to Digital Paper in recent months, including internal memory encryption, based on AES 256 technology, to further protect users’ confidential data.

Worldox and Sony first teamed to introduce Digital Paper to the legal market at ABA Tech Show 2014, and since the device’s introduction, it continues to gain acceptance throughout the legal market, for reading and annotating legal documents and as a “yellow pad replacement” for handwritten notes. Digital Paper is now embraced by law firms and law libraries, many of whom recognize its potential to transform their organizations and increase efficiencies.

“Working with Worldox has proven to be a successful collaboration from the start,” said Bill Bourke, National Sales Manager, Digital Paper Solutions. “Their knowledge of the legal industry and their unique expertise has been a critical element to building Digital Paper’s success, and our integration with their newest version of Worldox Web 2.0 is the next step in Digital Paper’s ongoing development.”

Worldox Web 2.0 has been completely redesigned to support the Worldox GX4 Active Profiling technology, to provide a seamless transition between the office and mobile devices.

“Legal professionals need to access their client documents from anywhere, easily and securely,” Bourke said. “Digital Paper integrated with Worldox Web 2.0 is the perfect solution.”

Sony Digital Paper has a list price of $799 and for a limited time professionals who purchase Digital Paper will receive a six-month free subscription to Worldox Web 2.0, a $180 value. Worldox Web 2.0 compatibility requires Worldox GX4 for any mobile device.
