HP is Opening Publishing APIs

HP is opening publishing APIs to new software components for storing and distributing content items with digital rights management. We are currently using these components in consumer products on wireless printers, but would like to expose these tools for external use into other products, and other markets. We are looking for ways HP can support the software developer’s services industry, and help enable creative, innovative ideas.

Bonus APIs from HP: Link Developer, IDOLOnDemand. Check these out and feel free to bring and use in the competition!


Anything you code will remain your property: HP wants a chance to see how people might use the new API’s and to troubleshoot any potential bugs that might reveal themselves. Questions? Contact Julie Anderson at
