  • End Users +

    End-users of Eddy are assigned to a portal. Companies and institutions are responsible for maintaining an up to date list of users who may access their portal.

  • Devices +

    Any device with Internet access can be downloaded to. The ability of the device to use that content is dependent upon the capabilities and/or software of that device.

The best approach is to use device agnostic, open source file formats and avoid proprietary formats.
