About Digital Media Art

Digital Media Art is a small family run business on the outskirts of Bristol in the UK. Originally specialising in pre-production work for the music publishing industry, we soon found that technical solutions and workflow enhancements that we developed in house were also in demand from our clients. After nearly 20 years in business, we now offer a diverse range of services orientated around print, publishing and the internet.

360° Panoramic Photography

Following a project to display our offices in a 360° Quicktime virtual reality tour for our website, we continued to refine the photographic and post production processes involved and put up a gallery of local architecture and landmarks which attracted a lot of attention from out clientelle.

We now offer this as a service, and can output the results for the internet as flat panoramic images or QTVR 'spins' that enable the viewer to pan the viewpoint in every direction, from the floor beneath your feet to the ceiling above.

The images can also be printed in anything up to A0 format (a massive 118cm by 84cm) which make eye-catching centrepieces for receptions areas and workplaces. Please check out our galleries in the 360° photography section linked above.

Web Design, Programming & Consultation

We work closely with designers from nm4s.com to supply the backend programming for highly interactive websites through the use of technologies such as PHP, databases (MySQL & PostgreSQL), flash, javascript and AJAX.

Recent projects include an entire workflow solution from commission to delivery via FTP for Total Guitar Magazine (Future Publishing). This included features such as an issue tracker and automated email notification of delivery of assets via FTP.

Web Hosting

We maintain a web hosting service on our own dedicated servers. Our ambition is to stay small! This enables us to offer a quality of service that is far above that you would expect from a huge faceless hosting company.

We pride ourselves on not only our service but also our flexibility – we've installed facilities such as ShoutCast (a kind of "internet radio") and Quicktime Streaming Server (high quality live streaming of audio and video, to an audience of up to 1,000 viewers) at the request of clients.
