Sourcefabric is established as a Czech non-profit organisation with its headquarters in Prague, branches in Berlin and Toronto, and representatives in Minsk, Guatemala, Warsaw, Belgrade and Cluj. It started life as CAMP in 1998, the new-media arm of the Media Development Investment Fund. In 2010 it launched as a wholly autonomous organisation securing private funding that propelled Sourcefabric into the ranks of one of the largest European open source projects for news and media.

Open for business.

Sourcefabric’s products are built by news experts and a highly skilled team of over 30 technical officers, developers, system administrators and quality assurance engineers.

Newscoop (open content management for newspapers & magazines), Airtime (open source radio automation) and Booktype (open source publishing platform for print and digital books) are currently on the market (each is downloaded over 10,000 times a year). Superdesk will further extend the range of tools in 2014, providing an open source digital workflow solution for newsrooms.

Airtime Pro is the first of our groundbreaking SaaS products for media in which we offer hosting, support and other complimentary services for a monthly fee. Booktype Pro, our cloud publishing platform for print and ebooks was launched in October 2012.

Our open source approach to software projects minimises expensive software licenses and in many cases completely eliminates them. Plus there’s no forced upgrade costs, fast and continual feature development, easy integration of third party tools, greater robustness, increased software durability and a worldwide community of experience and expertise to draw from.
