Production Excellence

Estel Conversion Labs has surpassed all other facilities for direct audited quality standards.

What does that mean for our customers?

  1. When we agree on a service level, we will always deliver consistently to that services level. We have quality audit data available from our transparent QA systems to ensure that what we say is what is delivered.
  2. Our own internal quality assurance processes are independently audited and assessed on a constant ongoing basis.
  3. We consult to provide content editor training services and solutions to other content conversion and production services organizations.


Estel has direct and scalable capacities to handle any work volume. In addition to our core infrastructure, we have associated Production Partners, fully audited by Estel, to ensure that your job will be delivered on time, to the hiqhest quality standards.

Estel Conversion Labs is the Premier Production Partner for major publishers and clients, and uses  IGP:Digital Publisher to ensure the highest quality and productivity for any job undertaken. It also means the content is available for instant use anytime in the future.

Pricing Model

We quote on a page by page basis for every book or document. Our experience shows this approach consistently delivers the lowest cost, while ensuring there are no pricing surprises.

Our content analysts will return the the pricing analysis for a book within one working day for standard books. Textbooks and complex trade books, catalogues or reference work may take longer and you will be notified.

Production Method

We do all production work on IGP:Digital Publisher using IGP:FoundationXHTML. This means that not only are all e-book formats generated, but the XHTML is ready for the future. You can request all the formats available from IGP:Digital Publisher.

Our quality systems minimize time wastage and rework. Our highly trained production teams have been doing high-end digitization for over a decade. After 60,000,000+ pages of valuable content, we have learned a thing or two.

How We Do It

The core digital production work is done in IGP:FoundationXHTML. Sounds proprietary? Its not. It's valid XHTML5 with CSS-3 which gives you the benefits of W3C standardization enhanced by a strictly controlled semantic vocabulary. It's processor friendly and designed to deliver the maximum reusability with the lowest possible Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

If you need interactivity we have the AZARDI Interactive Engine (AIE) which is included in deliverable content at no license cost. AIE is an interactive powerhouse with multiple widgets, Q&A and other components.

We are experts at SVG production for education and training. That means SVG learning tools with full interactivity.


You can request a number of formats. We currently deliver:

  • ePub2, ePub3, ePub3.1 (Reflowable, Fixed layout and Interactive)
  • Mobipocket (Kindle), Mobi for Kindle Fire
  • Fixed layout for iPad and Kindle Fire
  • Online PDF, print PDF
  • Multiple PDF editions (Hardcover, paperback, mass market, large-print)
  • Web Apps (AZARDI)
  • Static Sites
  • Digital Library Sites

And a number of other special and custom packages.

Remember ALL the above formats are available from the same XHTML in IGP:Digital Publisher with just a push of a format generation button.
