Page Turning Effect

Hi All
I've been asked by a client to supply a page turning version of a magazine we produce for them to add to their site.
Now I understand there are lots of apps available that you can pass a PDF through that will add this effect.
I've also used the export SWF from indesign then importing that file back into indesign to create a interactive PDF.
It does work but it's a very clunky and basic.

The Client requires a lot more navigation and control, Im now exploring sending it to a third party to add a rich interface, something very much like this:

My Questions is what are these guys doing to the PDF, I'd just like to know how they do this? What software do they work in? i.e. Flash...

Im not saying I could do it, just I like to have a understanding.
If anyone has a understanding of the process would you mind explaining it to me.

There seems to be a lot of people doing this now.
There are companies out there that sell specific software to convert your PDF into a page flip.

I have used this in the past and the best one for the price that I could see would be http://www.flipbuilder.com

It sure easy to use and customise.

You can also create a very simple page flip effect inside on InDesign but it doesn't have the control that these softwares provide.

Hope this helps somewhat.
