Books - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - Eastman Kodak Company announced in September, a new collaboration with On Demand Books and ReaderLink. The partnership will have in-store On Demand Books’ Espresso Book Machine deployed at retail locations that have the KODAK Picture Kiosks. The combination of services will offer consumers a full-service digital-to-print media. With the partnership, consumers will be able to get photo books and custom/local self-published titles, educational supplements, and more at retail locations.

On Demand Books is also working with ReaderLink that will help bring copyright titles to non-trade bookseller channels. Consumers would be able to get a copy of the book without special ordering for non-stock titles. ReaderLink is the largest full-service book distributer in North America; they service over 24,000 retail locations nationwide.

On Demand Books has the Espresso Book Machine that can print and assemble a book in less than four minutes. There technology combined with KODAK Picture Kiosk will allow them to expand their books to high-quality bound Kodak Photo Books. The books would be made in only minutes and would be able to be picked up at a store that has the Kodak Picture Kiosks.
The partnership will focus on integrating the two solutions in North America during 2012 and will eventually expand internationally in 2013.

Self-publishers may be excited about the new partnership because On Demand Books has EspressNet service that makes these titles available to consumers to print a copy on the Espresso Book Machine. Now with the Espresso Book Machine being integrated with KODAK Picture Kiosk, there will be more potential customers.

Consumers will have access to over 7 million in-copyright or public domain books that is available to order through On Demand Books. Moreover, they will be able to put together family photo books.
