summary In this paper we describe a pipeline for publishing interactive multimedia content. The Portable Document Format (PDF) offers the possibility to include 3D visualizations, textual representation and interactivity (via scripting technology) in one multimedia container, which will be the upcoming standard for multimedia long-term archiving. Our system demonstrates its potential for surplus value eBooks. By the example of chess we developed a publishing pipeline to create interactive books. Usually, chess games and positions are recorded using the algebraic chess notation, which is mainly an annotated list of moves. In combination with a time-dependent 3D visualization, each move corresponds to a specific game position. This correspondence is encoded in hyperlinks from the textual representation to the 3D visualization. This linkage improves readability and usability of chess notations significantly. Furthermore, using an established file format our eBooks can be opened by any compliant PDF viewer.
