As the demand for digital content grows, more and more publishers are digitizing their physical books. Publishers rely on eBook conversion companies to convert physical books, magazines, white papers, reports, and other material into reader-friendly digital content with rich features. With the coronavirus lockdowns, eBooks and reading apps are thriving.
Advantages of eBooks include: saves space, provides easy and instant access to content, allows sharing of books, protects them from damage, can restore damaged books, is more cost-effective than printing, and protects the environment by saving paper. Technavio predicted that the digital publishing market would grow by USD 65.31 billion during 2021-2025, expanding at a CAGR of almost 13%.
What the Book Digitization Process Involves
Challenges of Digitizing Books
Device settings such as font size impact how much of a page will appear on the screen. While Mobi files is the format for the Kindle/Amazon device, ePub can be read on most devices. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is generally used for archiving purposes.
Sub pixel rendering could enhance the resolution of fonts on eBook software and hardware. Subpixel rendering technologies leverage the subpixel structure of a display to improve the apparent resolution and enhance the display quality of text as well as graphics or images.
The challenges of digitizing books are not limited to the above. That’s why many publishers are choosing to work with professional eBook conversion companies to get their books digitized efficiently, accurately and quickly.
