Director | Flash | Acrobat | html | CD | DVD
There are a range of applications and methods we can use to build your interactive presentation - the most appropriate depends on the intended recipient and delivery method, hardware considerations, available source material and budget. The options tend to be:
These presentations are generally perceived to be 'true' multimedia, almost always CD ROM based, generally cross platform (PC & Mac) and can involve extensive use of video, animation and voiceover. They can be built either as a relatively linear speaker support presentation or made fully interactive for mass distribution and browsing by an individual.
Plus Points: Total control of appearance, actions etc. and no additional software required by the viewer (within a predetermined basic machine specification). Tamper proof and secure. High perceived value.
Downside: Not editable & relatively expensive to produce if only small volume required. Testing period required. Fixed resolution.
For the smallest and most entertaining/interactive presentations we can create everything within flash and supply it as a self-running application requiring no plug-in or installation. The only downside is that flash really doesn't support digital video.
Using Acrobat to its full capacity allows massive print files to be reduced to a size where they display easily on screen with intuitive navigation. All fonts are preserved, printing is simple and exceedingly high quality. The files are fully cross platform. Viewing these files does require the recipient to have the Reader software installed but this may be freely distributed or downloaded. This is particularly suited to getting product catalogues or data sheets to screen. more info
Here we build you an off-line web site, self contained on a CD and designed to run in the popular browsers which are now on virtually every PC. Because the files are accessed from CD rather than via a phone line much more ambitious animation and enhanced image quality are achieved. Increasingly popular as the connected population grows in numbers and confidence. more info
For large projects a combination of some (or indeed all) of the above may build to provide the full solution. For example: An all singing, all dancing Director introduction may then give access to editable Powerpoint product presentations, printable Acrobat datasheets and the relevant websites (either on or off-line) This has the advantage of making the most of all available material and adding longevity to the overall project - if the areas where change is most likely can be amended separately then the need to rebuild from scratch can be postponed almost indefinitely. more info
We can deliver the finished product on a conventional CD or get a special CD produced for you - CDs don't have to be round!
CD's can be manufactured for you in almost any shape or the same size and shape as a normal business card
We now have in house DVD writing facilities and can master your digital video as a DVD disc (incuding custom menus and basic editing). We'll produce the master or a limited number of copies, larger volumes are sourced externally as required.
If you need the video shot we can arrange this for you or recommend some excellent production companies...
