About Mylestones’ Video Book

Each Mylestones video book contains the event footage and video clips, photos and mementos contributed by the people special someone’s inner circle. All of those elements are combined to tell a story on video. That film is then compressed and uploaded into a video book.

The preloaded, open-&-play LCD video book looks, on the outside, like a traditional book. But, when you open it, the ‘book’ functions more like a tablet. By opening the cover, a magnet releases the start button so the video begins to play on the HD viewing screen inside the book. The viewer is able to watch and hear the crisp, sharp video. The book also has a small USB port on the side and comes with a USB cord for recharging the battery. There are forward and rewind buttons, as well as volume control.
