The End of Flash?

How you distribute your message to your audience is a very important last step in the production process. In years past we developed heavily in Flash because of its near universal consistency and endless creative bounds. Not anymore.

At Seattle Video Production have a new website.

‘Really’, you say? ‘That’s your announcement’? Maybe you didn’t notice because it looks pretty much the same as the old one, but our website has actually been completely rebuilt from the ground up. It runs on a WordPress engine so it’s a snap to update. And in areas we used Flash we’re now detecting your browser and then displaying JQuery versions when you are on an iPad or other mobile device.

Video is now being served via Vimeo, a site we feel does the best job of both detecting and showing the right stream depending on your device. It also gives you full screen. And it’s really affordable. And we don’t have to encode it 5 times for 5 different stream types.

Lastly, we’ve added a knowledge section.  Our team lives with motion media every day. We’ve seen what works, we track what’s new and are always working to stretch our creative bounds. So we’re going to be adding articles and information to help spark ideas and de-mystify the production process.

These efforts are about being accessible and doing what works. These same strategies are ones we’re recommending to our clients when they start planning their video production projects because distribution matters.
