planning

Understanding the user is the objective of planning. Planners anticipate the user’s needs and commit those needs to tangible form. The final result acts as the information “blueprint” for development. Using technical skill to plan and build the digital structures for solutions to users’ needs is DATA’s expertise.

design

A successful user experience requires design that plans for the users’ ease in finding the information they need. Creating a network of information that can be easily navigated is the process of thinking, planning, and building successful applications. DATA’s experienced, Emmy Award winning team of engineers and information designers is technically innovative and abundantly creative.

Industries

  • Government

    Government clients are integral to DATA’s business. We have 22 years of experience completing government contracts with government prime contractors and with government clients. Our interactive animation and programming work in conjunction with our video partner, Ferrari Films, has been recognized with multiple awards by the U.S. Air Force, other government agencies, and media organizations. (http://www.cemm.org/The-CEMM/Awards.aspx)

  • Education

    Universities, colleges, high schools, middle and grade schools are using online programs and applications to teach, to inform, and to measure the effectiveness of their various efforts to reach students and the community at large. DATA’s experience in developing educational programs is the heart of our business and includes each of the industries in this section of our website. Our success has been to listen, to advise, to plan, and to develop programs that make use of interactive, visual content for ease of understanding by the viewer who can easily respond to the programs’ goals.

  • Healthcare

    Medical animation as well as interactive mobile applications have been the hallmarks of DATA’s medical and healthcare sites and programs. Our clients include universities, government agencies, and private practice doctors and clinics. Topics have included skin cancer, pregnancy, eye surgery, cardiology, knee arthroscopy, men’s health, women’s health, colon health, asthma, hearing, orthopedic injury and prevention, diabetes, and aids. Our programs have received multiple awards and some have appeared on Discovery Channel.

  • Transportation

    Transportation projects are aided exponentially using accurate specifications for 3D-computer animation as part of a transportation project plan. DATA has participated in virtual highway restructuring, airline concourse construction, airport expansion, new funicular rail systems, and virtual bus-and-rail systems modeling using composite video and “real” bus line footage to test the feasibility of an integrated system. Using well-engineered drawings, we’ve even tested the viability of new aerospace delivery systems in a reusable launch vehicle.

  • Architecture

    A revealing, cost-saving scenario occurred when architects for one of the concourses at the then new Denver International Airport were able to see carpet, podiums, columns, and light throughout the day in a virtual setting. The carpet was too busy and produced a sense of vertigo; the podiums were too tall by a few inches; the best column surface choice was stainless steel; and daylight was able to be managed better with better window design. The cost savings for architectural projects using 3D-computer animation is noteworthy. In the case of the airport concourse, savings from not having to relay carpet, re-tool podiums, re-surface columns, or redesign windows during construction were in seven figures.

    Other advantages using new visual technology allows prospective owners to see the view from various floors in new, unconstructed apartment or condo buildings. Using virtual cameras or, in some cases, real cameras mounted on drones, 360 views at variable heights can be added to a floor plan to make choosing a location, location, location easier and more fun.

  • Entertainment

    The development team at DATA includes designers, animators, programmers, project managers, and ops people. Each member of the team admires and enjoys YouTube videos, movies, and music. We’re able to create some of our own unique entertainment in 3D animation and do so each year during the holidays as gifts to our families, our friends, and our clients. We have projects on the back-burner that we’ll be able to launch soon.

    In the meantime, here’s a re-run of some entertainment from the past.
