We can help you to design and produce a CD-ROM or DVD for any purpose
While Creatorix develops its own CD-ROM titles, CD-ROMs and DVDs can also be created on a co-production basis with other writers/creative teams providing concept and content. For any specific project, Creatorix can put together a team of people with many years experience in CD-ROM production. Each member of the team is multi-skilled. Production is a result of team work in the truest sense. We have the skills to capture and process all major forms of digital media - music, voice, movies, images.
Our CD-ROMs will play on either a PC or a Mac. DVDs will play on either DVD players and/or computers with that capacity.
The technology which Creatorix uses in CD-ROM/DVD development allows the content creator control over the development process without any knowledge of coding or of authoring software. This process allows the author to give documents and media pieces meaningful names and to create a text-based outline and visual map of how the media pieces connect and interact. The code is generated according to these. If careful consideration is given at the early stages to the overall concept and structure (a process with which Creatorix can assist), a working (clickable) engine can be created even before all the media is finalised. This allows for the production to be compiled as media is created and processed. The system also allows for easy modification or replacement of any media item without coding alteration.
For all Creatorix CD-ROMs, choice of content and structure is based on a philosophical stance that recognises the importance of:
a holistic approach which explores subjects from a variety of viewpoints
- practical, scientific, historical, ethical and a futures perspective;
a layered approach which allows the user to explore any chosen topic
at different depths according to levels of interest or ability;
ultimate flexibility which allows users to follow different pathways,
construct their own meaning and draw their own conclusions,
but within a carefully structured framework;
well researched and properly sourced material which explores issues
and examines questions but with back up facts and figures
to allow users to develop their own opinion;
stimulation of the senses as well as of the mind by making fullest use
of a variety of media within the constraints of available technology.
Our CD-ROMs can include any or all of the following features:
- direct access to chosen sites on the internet
- slide shows - with or without voiceovers
- Quicktime movies
- animated sequences
- clickable image maps & timelines
- a gallery of images (some larger than screen size)
- background music
- a full glossary searchable by typing in letters or words
- a context sensitive glossary
- bookmarking and printing of all text files
- printing of line drawings for colouring in or project work
- a variety of interactivities - puzzles and activities of all sorts
- multiple language versions on a single disc
