Interactive Product Tours
Coding, animation, project & team management, VO, Graphic Design
Here are two average examples of the literally dozens of product tours done for various high-profile clients such as Sony, Canon, Epson, Netgear, Pentax, Fuji, Avaya, Lexar, SanDisk, SlingBox, and many others.
These interactive demos were all created in Flash, which was a tricky feat to pull off… the Flash Player had big timing issues when it came to playing audio. Voice over synchronization would slip because the Flash player would drop frames to keep up visual playback speed, but it did this without dropping audio frames. That meant 30 seconds into the tour, the VO would be talking out of sync like a bad kung-fu movie.
Finding a solution to this problem meant our studio was the only one at the time that could produce these interactive product tours with voice overs tracks that remained in-sync during playback. In addition, some clever pre-loading kept performance smooth regardless of presentation length or user bandwidth.
