At KIWA®, we pride ourselves on using cutting-edge technology to create cutting-edge experiences.
Founded in 2003 by award-winning film and television producer Rhonda Kite, the company was initially established as a post-production software company. Our first software product was Voice-Q®, a tool designed to automatically dub foreign-language dialogue in television and film production. Voice-Q® is used in studios worldwide and in 2007 it won a prestigious Hollywood Post Alliance Engineering Excellence Award.
After helping to revolutionise the post-production industry, we began to look at doing the same thing for books. Despite advances in digital publishing, building e-books is still seen as a process that involves little more than creating an electronic representation of the existing text and images. We see technology as an enabler. To us, an unused feature is a missed opportunity. We go many steps further than scanning and reformatting content – we add to it and rarify it, making worlds come to life in a way authors have always wished for.
Our experiential books are kinaesthetic and tactile. They are not just books; they are immersive, interactive, and instructive experiences.
