lrf The LRF format is a proprietary format developed by Sony in collaboration with Canon, as a document and text encoding standard for the Broad Band eBook file format. The format specifically targeted Sony portable eBook readers and was capable of encoding both text, pagination, and images. Being unencrypted, LRF encoded files do not enforce DRM. This is in contrast to the LRX format which is also part of the BBeB eBook file format which does support encryption for DRM files. The Sony eBook store announced in July 2010 a discontinuation of support for the LRF format in favor of the public and open EPUB format.
tcr The .tcr filename extension is a compressed text file format for eBooks and text associated with eBook reader software developed by Psion, a London based techonology company. The format has its beginnings in the early 90's and was designed for use on the PDAs released by the company, particularly the Series 3 handheld PDA. Though the format is proprietary and was intended for exclusive use on Psion devices, today, a few eBook reader applications can open files encoded in this format. As PDAs eventually lost there popularity, the format was discontinued when Psion eventually pulled out of the PDA market.
