With a vast experience in the Media And Entertainment domain, Archimedes Services has end-to-end capabilities in Digital Media, Content Solutions for Publishing, Gaming, and Embedded Software in the Entertainment segment. Here are a few of the challenges we can solve for you in this area:

  • Games Development: We have the expertise of developing games using popular frameworks e.g. Unity3D, Cocos2D, AndEngine etc. In addition, we keep portability in mind, so that they can be run on a variety of platforms, including flash, browsers and various mobile operating systems.
  • Smart TV Apps: We have the experience of developing SmartTV apps and plugins using Samsung and LG SDKs.
  • Content Management and Streaming: We can either create bespoke content management systems or customise turnkey solutions for your publishing needs. More often than not, we use existing CMS solutions such as Joomla, Drupal, Alfresco, Liferay, DotNetNuke and Umbraco - if they are a good match for the customers' requirements. We can also help you with Digital Publications needs (e.g. turning paper media into digital media e.g. iOS Newstand applications). If you are after video/audio streaming solutions, we have developed solutions using products such as Red5 and Wowza, which can stream to a host of frontends including mobile devices.
  • Monetising Content and Ad revenue: We can help you in increasing traffic to your website. We employ the latest techniques such as Search Engine Optimisation, AdWords and Google Analytics to improve your search rankings. If you already have a sizeable user base, we can assist you in turning this traffic into a revenue stream by using advertising solutions such as adsense, clicksor, adbrite etc. Mobile apps have the advantage of having an audience that is engaged for a longer period of time than other media offerings, and hence advertising is more lucrative for that channel. We can create more value for your content using subscriptions, in-app purchases and mobile ad networks (Admob, AdWhirl).
  • Immersive User Experience: The entertainment industry is pretty competitive in that users seek out unique content and experiences. We have domain experts who can help you with your idea, with a range of services including story boards, wire framing, graphics assets development, mapping, sounds libraries, intuitive UX/UI elements and putting it all together using programming frameworks.
