company

KoodibooK is a UK-based company providing self-publishing and print-on-demand software and services. By downloading and using its KoodibooK Studio, users access photographs stored locally or online at sources such as Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Facebook and MySpace, then create photobooks, scrapbooks, storybooks or yearbooks which can be shared online, and/or published in print.

KoodibooK Studio is a Microsoft Windows application used to produce the photobook and publish them to the company's web site. Once online, photobooks can be viewed on any device with Internet access, such as smartphones, tablets and desktop web browsers. Users can purchase books on a one-off basis or sell them to others via the web site.

History

KoodibooK was founded at the University of Bath's Innovation Centre in 2008[1] by two former Microsoft employees.[2]

The website launched on July 15, 2010.[3] The team had been involved in the visualisation and digitisation of treasure books at the British Library.[4] Here, they observed that similar techniques could be applied to the wider book market. KoodibooK's development also coincided with rapid growth forecast for the digital reader market.[5]

Process

KoodibooK Studio is software designed for creating new books. Before it is published, a book in progress can be previewed using a full three-dimensional model, browsed page by page and viewed from any angle.

It runs on XP, Vista and Windows7, enabling users to access photos from many online content providers, including Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug, Photobucket, MySpace, Bebo, PhotoBox, Google, Bing and Yahoo, as well as local disks—CDs, DVDs and so forth.

Once published, books can be viewed on the website and using Silverlight, Flash or a basic HTML viewer.

Mobile users view and buy their books on Windows Phone 7.
