Mark Hochwalt had a problem. As the owner of a startup firm dedicated to bringing new biochemical technologies to market, he didn't have a lot of expertise in developing a web site to help him communicate with his potential customers and investors. Learning the details of HTML and graphic design, linking and URLs was not one of the most important things that he needed to do to make his business a success. Having an impressive web presence was, however, at the top of his list.
Mark paid a graphic designer to design the look for his site but all he got was a set of PowerPoint slides with ideas that didn't take into account the unique nature of web-based technologies. As he found out, designing for print and designing for the web are not the same thing. Mark worked with the Creative staff at Compass to modify his designs so that they would work on the web. In addition, Compass was able to provide reliable web hosting services in our secure data center through our ePublishing service. Now Innovium has a presence on the web that is reliable and worry-free.
Scott Lesh had a problem. As an independent SCUBA instructor, he needed a way to distribute research video captured during an underwater cave exploration to students and prospective students. As an independent professional, Scott doesn't have a big office, much less an IT infrastructure to deliver compelling multimedia over the web. To develop the necessary skills and infrastructure was beyond his financial means.
Scott contacted the eServices team at Compass to see if there was any way that they could help. While Scott had the SCUBA gear and underwater video cameras necessary to make scientific and training videos, he needed experts to help him convert his video into the correct formats for streaming over the web. Compass helped him with all that and more. Not only did we convert his video to MPEG4 format for streaming, but we optimized the data transfer rates and added watermarks to cut down on copyright infringement. We also hosted his videos, such as the Ha Ha Tonka Spring Dive, on streaming servers in our high-capacity data center, all for an affordable fixed monthly fee.
