PageTurn

The customisable Multi-touch eBook reader

Museum PDF Touchscreen viewer

Interactive Touchscreen eBook Viewer

PageTurn is from a series of interactive software solutions we’ve created using a specially developed template software platform that allows us to create unique touchscreen presentations for use in the museum, heritage and retail environment. A popular request particularly amongst museums and heritage centres is the ability to present historical books to visitors in a touchscreen interface, with the cost of bespoke software often too great we decided to create a more standard and cost efficient option… Page Turn!

With PageTurn we (or you) can take PDF’s and turn them into gesture controlled selectable eBooks with a realtime ‘Page Turning’ effect (hence the name!). We/You also tailor the interactive for its intended use with a custom background and the use of your logo.

How does it work?

Using PDF’s  (which can be created by us should you require the service) PageTurn utilises our unique template software system to create a customised interactive. With the use of a custom logo and background PageTurn can be configured for various applications. We can create your PageTurn interactive for you and pre-install the interactive on your hardware or send it over the web for you to install yourself, or you can purchase PageTurn alongside our Editing Software and create the interactive yourself!

Display Modes

Your collection of books (up to 10) can be organised and presented to visitors in three ways – Random, Grid and Tile.
Museum Ebook Reader Display Mode
From here users can move books around, enlarge with gesture controls and also flick quickly through pages using the < and > buttons. When they find a book they wish to read in fullscreen they simply select the ‘enlarge’ button. Once in fullscreen mode books are navigated using a drag gesture to turn each page.

Customisable

With the use of different PDF’s along with a personalised logo and background ‘PageTurn’ can be utilised in a variety of settings, for example below you can see PageTurn used within a well know car dealership to present brochures electronically for visitors, as well as used in a children’s corner of a bookstore. Remember though, once your PageTurn interactive is complete you won’t be able to alter the books on display yourself unless you have Editor.
