Our server solutions
Dedicated DAISY server
For audiobook libraries with a very large range of audiobooks and many readers who want to distribute their audibooks via the powerful Sensotec server.
Here, the customer/organization itself is in charge of developing the app that readers can use.
The dedicated server is set up and managed specifically for this organization by Sensotec.
Dedicated DAISY server + branded app
For audiobook libraries with a very large range of audiobooks and many readers who want to distribute their audibooks via the powerful Sensotec servers.
The branded app which makes the audio files accessible is developed by Sensotec, completely customized for the customer.
Together with the customer, we write a roadmap with the specific app functionalities and design requirements.
Shared DAISY server
+ SensoReader app
For small audiobook libraries with a limited range of audiobooks and limited number of readers.
DAISY books are offered via a shared DODP server and via the SensoReader app to readers. As a result, the cost is lower.
Admittedly, no additional features or personalization are possible.
DAISY stands for 'Digital Accessible Information System'. It is a worldwide standard for audiobooks for people with reading difficulties: blind or visually impaired people, or people with reading disabilities such as dyslexia.
The advantage of a Daisybook over a regular audiobook is that the reader has a real book experience.
He can browse, bookmark, set the reading speed, navigate between chapters,...
Daisybooks can be listened to in different ways. With an audiobook player or DAISY player, or via an app on your smartphone or tablet.
What are DAISY books?
What is a good server for audiobooks?
An audiobook server is a place where audiobooks are collected and offered to readers. Their reading history remains secret.
Sensotec specializes in professional DODP servers. A DODP server complies with the "Daisy Online Delivery Protocol" for distributing online books.
Because many users use this kind server at the same time, it must be powerful and fast.
For large organizations with a large range of audiobooks and many users, it is necessary to set up a 'dedicated server'. This provides the necessary space and power to efficiently serve the readers.
Per organization, 1 server is provided which is fully equipped according to the wishes and needs of the customer. Our experts work with the customer to set up the server. Once live, Sensotec will closely monitor and optimize the server.
The customer can then choose to develop the corresponding app himself or call upon the experts at Sensotec to set up this branded app.
For small organizations, with a limited range of audiobooks, Sensotec now offers the option of joining the SensoReader Shared DAISY server.
This avoids the significant cost of having your own server. Combined with the SensoReader app, the audiobooks become available to readers without high costs for the organization.
Personalization and specific functionalities are not possible in this type of server solution.
With a SensoReader server you offer a realiable
online platform to your readers.
The app is fully customized:
