What else do we do?
Whether you want to digitize paper books to put into our content server, or use a dedicated device to distribute the books in your server – we've got it covered.
After launching LibroCS in Estonia, we realized that for libraries to move into the e-book world they need a way to digitize their collections.
But all the available industrial book scanners cost more than most libraries or archives could afford, so we set out to develop Bookscandy, a reasonably priced book scanner.
Bookscandy features include:
- Non-destructive – the scanner is designed to be as gentle as possible. No need to destroy the books by removing or stressing their spines
- Semi-automatic – the pages have to be turned by an operator, which is the only acceptable way for scanning delicate books and documents
- User-friendly – the scanner software is very intuitive, and has many advanced features built in for better experience
- Robust – designed to be used in industrial settings with almost non-stop usage
Bookscandy is currently in the final stages of development, ready for launch in Q1 of 2012.

While developing LibroCS we saw great interest in e-books from Estonian consumers, but most of them could not afford to invest over €250 in a device that would just be used for reading e-books.
To prepare the market for e-books and to satisfy the demand for a cheap e-book reader, we created the eReeder, which costs only €99. As well as being a great e-book reader, it also plays music and videos effortlessly.
