3D-Computer Animation DATA has been creating 3D-computer animation for 20 years, translating complex medical information, engineering structures, or innovative ideas for new inventions into easy-to-understand explanations or stories told with pictures. Helping viewers to comprehend otherwise vague systems, processes, or new environments is a core value of detailed, animated images. Entertaining, teaching, or informing audiences is the legacy of visual technology and creativity. Compelling, animated content will be in demand and always welcomed by interested, compelled audiences. View highlights from DATA's animation work. Advertising 3D or Flash animation tells a brand’s story with sparkling clarity or profound understanding. Audiences remember. Aerospace Space technology and 3D were made for each other! Visualizing the invisible and flying new concepts before they have wings is the allure of virtual space exploration. Architecture The magic of 3D offers a peek through the keyhole of tomorrow’s reality. New airports, hospitals, hotels, ball parks, office buildings, or condos can offer tours of their facilities before their blueprints leave the architect! Education/Training Today’s 3D-computer animation technology cannot have landed in a softer lap than the lap of education and training. Whether third-graders are learning photosynthesis, or doctors are being trained in new surgical procedures, 3D is able to show clear, detailed images of the process. Learning becomes easier and faster; questions are quickly answered and resolved. Engineering Bids on new construction projects are competitive; engineering firms use 3D-modeling and animation for presentation to the client to illustrate construction efficiencies, safety and traffic flow management, as well as the final look of the project. Even before presentation is made to the client, sub-contractors can review detailed visual specifications for accurate cost projections. Planning and costs become more accurate and competitive; engineering firms using 3D technology win more bids. Entertainment The special effects derived from 3D animation are unlimited. A good story told with imagination and compelling imagery is enduring. The future for innovative 3D entertainment is certain to provide whole new worlds of fascinating story telling! Invention Inventors express their ideas in sketches, blueprints, even prototypes. Investors look for value and understanding the “better mouse trap”. Using 3D-computer models and animation to describe the new idea or product with precise detail and allow it to experience any environment or application to exhibit its value is a cost effective bridge to the market place. Medicine The full spectrum of medicine is being captured in 3D-computer animation. Whether surgical procedures, treatment protocols, or explanations of how to care for our bodies, computer animation is an ideal partner in teaching complex ideas, using life-size, molecular, or atomic microscope images. Transportation Carrying people or cargo, transportation systems are expensive to build and maintain. Building the system, whether a funicular train, intermodal center, airport, highways, or a new electronic bus line can be done economically and tested virtually. Virtual models have created immense savings in dollars and time prior to breaking ground on a proposed project. Video and Audio Video and audio have been part of DATA's origins since 1992. Before the Internet was commercially viable, and before CD and DVD technology was available, DATA was first and foremost a 3D-computer animation company, bringing the best production values in animation, as well as video and audio for delivery of our clients' presentations. 20 years later, we're a full-service technology firm, still close to our roots when it comes to producing world class video and audio including production, post-production, sound-tracks and effects, voice-over, digital mastering, and on-line video streaming. LMS -Training and Education DATA has developed online learning management systems (LMS) for training and education. Earning continuing education credits, receiving certifications, or learning new processes are some successful outcomes. Technologies such as motion graphics or 3D-computer animation, streaming video, blogs or forums, make learning easy and enjoyable. There are no limits to what can be taught, what can be learned, and what can be tested and reported. Interactive learning tools make the experience unique for each student; online live video coaching or Webinars can make the experience a collaborative effort. Web Development and E-Commerce DATA's award-winning team includes designers, information architects, search engine optimization specialists, project managers, and programmer/developers. Every Web development project is meticulously planned and managed. Taking all aspects of the Web experience into account from an exceptional user experience to standards-compliant code, we work with you to bring your ideas and your needs to life in their most successful incarnation. Multimedia Our experience with multimedia authoring, 2D graphics, 3D-computer animation and video/audio technologies, gives DATA the advantage of seasoned expertise in producing multimedia material for fixed media in CD and DVD formats. As Flash programming and Web technologies continue to evolve, the efficiency of multimedia interactivity is being produced for the Web in most of our training and education programs. Efficiencies include print and one-off burn capability from cohesive modules on the Web. Advertising, Online Marketing, and Analytics Planning the campaign and meeting the goals for return on the marketing investment is the goal. Achieving the goal in the white water of changes in advertising is the challenge. DATA’s marketing and advertising relationships have given us the opportunities to collaborate in producing online advertising products such as banner ads, rich-media advertising modules, and dedicated promotional Web sites. Combined with our experience in Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, and Pay-Per-Click advertising, DATA has the marketing expertise to help make your brands known and to boost your sales. We can analyze and report results or teach you how to monitor and manage a successful, online marketing approach. Flash/Flex Applications The Adobe Flash/Flex platform brings the interactivity and sophistication of a desktop application to the table while remaining independent of platform or operating system. DATA's dedicated Adobe developers can create beautiful and useable interfaces and interactivity that will transition easily from Web to desktop. The versatility of this platform allows for an extraordinary efficiency of development, as a Flash module created to be hosted in a Web environment can be converted to run as a Flex desktop application with relatively little effort, assuming the original module was developed with this transition in mind. Web Application Software and Mobile Devices DATA's Web application software development expertise is expressed in desktop applications, mobile device applications, and dedicated kiosks. We have a rich history of meeting our clients' needs with custom solutions that are well planned for ease-of-use and a long, flexible shelf life. Touch Screen Kiosks DATA has created dedicated touch screen kiosks to the delight of audiences playing a wild animal game, users reviewing floor plans in a new high-rise condo building, and homeowners taking virtual tours of new homes in pre-build status. On-site information needs can be planned to anticipate customers’ or patients’ needs and convenience whether it’s to offer directories and customer assistance, product demos or details, recipes in the produce section, or entertainment and information in waiting rooms. Content Management System (CMS) DATA is a long-time user of Kentico’s Content Management System. We began our partnership in Version 1 (Kentico will be releasing Version 6.0 in Q3 of 2011) when DATA was one of the only vendors for Kentico in the US. Now, with Kentico thriving and competing at the highest level of the enterprise capable CMS market, DATA continues to have one of the most experienced and prolific teams of Kentico developers and trainers in the country. Our history with Petr Palas and his company began as DATA participated in using the Kentico API suggesting improvements, fixes, and additional features for the software. Kentico’s enthusiastic responses to our requests and demands from the market place have allowed it to manage exponential growth with a solid foundation in extensible technology. DATA’s preference for Kentico’s platform is based on years of experience with its successful system designed for the vendor market. Kentico’s efficiency allows every implementation to be a custom configuration meticulously planned to meet the needs of our clients. Our planning phase includes detailed gathering of requirements with a focus on which elements of the site need to be edited, how often, and by whom. This ensures that each site we deliver offers the greatest possible degree of client autonomy and Web site longevity based on the needs expressed and uncovered during planning. The ease of use is consistently praised by our clients and can be compared to editing a Word document. We are developing our own personal showcase of innovative Kentico implementations, and a place to share the tips and tricks that our developers have been gathering for years. If you’re a site-owner considering Kentico, this is a good resource to see what’s possible with the system. If you’re a developer using Kentico, this is a great place to find and share the tricks of the trade. Enjoy a thorough Kentico experience at the Kentico Solutions showcase built by DATA.
