    April 9, 2016 Now Available Apple Version of Queen West App

    Today Animated Media launched the Apple Version of the Queen West App, our first of a series of "Neighbourhood Apps" that offers hyper-local information, events, special offers & advertising to and for local residents, workers and students.  The App is already in the Google Play Store. AMI's goal is to offer businesses of all sizes a cost effective, real-time mobile advertising platform, supporting both image and text-based ads, that enables them to attract and reward local customers and build loyalty.

    QWApp LogoThe Queen West Neighbourhood (plus Entertainment & Fashion Districts) in Toronto is one of the most vibrant areas in the world. Known for its eclectic mix of old and new, large and small businesses, restaurants, bars, music venues and more, you can always find something interesting to do, see, eat or shop. The App also helps answer the question "What do we want to do for fun today?" and offers ideas for a night out, where to go for lunch, and showcases events happening in the area.

    We plan to work with the Queen West Business Improvement Area (BIA) improve commerce and attract residents and visitors to stay in the Neighbourhood and #ShopLocal, #EatLocal & #DrinkLocal.

    July 4, 2014 Unveiling our latest VGK Platform Engines for Animation & 3D

    Over the past year, we have extended our earlier work to mesh 3D and 2D and today we unveil the latest VGK Engines to be added to the VGK Platform with prototype applications.  The VGK Animation Engine extends our original Flash Animation Engine by supporting animations on 3D Objects as well as implemented on dynamic or point-to-point pathways.  The VGK 3D Engine supports multiple 3D Objects on the 3D Stage. In our prototype application of a driving track, these 3D Objects include vehicles with textures, roadways, buildings, street signs, trees, and billboards displaying animated advertisements.  

    Key Takeaways:
    • UI authoring in 2D to create 3D Objects on a 3D Stage
    • Changes to the UI do not affect or require changes to the application source code
    • The new VGK Animation Engine supports animations on 3D Objects
    • The new VGK 3D Engine dynamically creates a 3D Stage
    • These new Engines are part of the production version of the VGK Platform
