New Interactive, Rich Media Product for Designers

April 7, 2006. Edinburgh, Scotland. Runtime Revolution Ltd, the leader in
multi-platform rich media and application development tools, announces the
release of Revolution Media. In addition, Runtime Revolution introduces new
support forums for all products, including specialized, per-project forums
for Revolution Media.

Revolution Media lets digital production designers, artists and interactive
media specialists create rich media projects, then deploy them on Mac OS X
and Windows – all from the same project. There is no easier path to
interactive media for graphics designers.

Revolution Media includes features that designers want:

Easy visual creation of media projects and utilities. Drag-create visuals:
buttons, windows, information boxes, lists, players and more. Projects and
utilities can be played back against a customizable backdrop – using
Revolution Player – on Windows and Mac OS X.

Step up to Revolution scripting. English-like Revolution is the easiest
scripting language available – easier than Javascript or Flash
ActionScript. Yet Revolution features all the modern language features that
any developer would expect.

Stunning blending and transitions. All objects, from buttons to windows,
can have animated, interactive blending and transparency, with over 20 new
blend modes. Supports windows of any shape and effects on windows/dialogs,
including alpha masks.

Powerful media engine with anti-aliased vector support. New anti-aliased
vector graphics presentation layer. Supports advanced QuickTime
interactivity for playback of video, audio and more. Text-to-Speech,
video/audio capture, printing, and loading/displaying media from a website
barely scratch the surface on what projects can include.

Focused Starter Projects. Take a stack of graphics and transform them into
a slideshow presentation, kiosk or artist’s digital portfolio. Turn your
pictures instantly into a point-and-click adventure game. It comes with
source code of all four templates you can modify for your own projects.

Revolution Media costs $49. Learn more about Revolution Media at Media can also be upgraded to Revolution Studio
and Revolution Enterprise.

Runtime Revolution also introduces new support and learning forums at The new forums are set up by level so that those
new to rich media can find exactly the information they want and need to
extend their skill sets.
