IMPORTANT NOTICE: NetStairs® site is not for consumers! For over a decade, we have served visionary clients, major ad agencies, global brands, media publishers, TV stations, broadcasters, event promoters, and enterprises globally.
Welcome to NetStairs® Official Web Site. Since 2,000 from time to time, we have remodeled and upgraded our own site. It is a reflection of the latest innovations and technologies we showcase. NetStairs’ website is a true representation of our inner and outer work. Everything you experience from ground up is built from scratch and founded on NetStairs® algorithms, platforms, creative & industry's best practices.
When you first landed at the site, you were greeted with the visual construction of a rendered backdrop. This visual effect sets the tone for a different kind of user experience. Then, you see the appearance of a collection of sub menus pleasantly positioned for simplicity, ease-of-use, and user engagement.
NetStairs’ site displays several innovative areas of interests. We start with the top menu. It is the most standard part of the menu system as defined by many content management system (CMS) tools. These buttons provide direct links to HTML, Form, and other object program modules. Below the top menu, there is a creative display of sub menus that point to three (3) sets of content libraries. Each library delivers a unique visual experience tailored for 3 types of settings; Mobile, Broadband, & HD (measured by: bandwidth & devices). Utilizing CMS menu allows compliance, search engine optimization (SEO) and easy adaptation while various content is hosted in multiple servers.
The carousel represents an animated showcase of NetStairs platforms and technologies licensed, built, and hosted on cloud or closed as white label with integrated client services. Initially, it makes a virtual 3D round. Click the “Pause/Start" button and the carousel stops and starts spinning. Move your mouse to the NetStairs logo and the carousel returns to normal speed. Roll your mouse over the item(s) hovered over the carousel. This provides a subtle highlighted backdrop which allows you to make easier item selection. Here, we demonstrate examples of visually enhanced menu with intuitive navigational work flow.
Each item when selected from the carousel opens a page with brief text description (located on the left), picture on the right, and on-demand video which is hosted on our managed hosted servers. The video is an example of our 3D animation services prepared by our Creative & 3D department & presented as an Ad and Cybermercial® VMail broadcast model. The “Inquiry Form” button directs your request to NetStairs Platform Specialists. “Visit Website”, is a direct link where you may learn more about selected topic of interest. If you wish to avoid returning to the carousel, simply click “Next” and examine subsequent platforms. Click “Back” to return to previous platform subject. Here, we demonstrate an example of visual display of information (text, picture, & video) with Call To Action (CTA) work flow coupled with intuitive use.
Behind the scene
It all started with a pioneer vision, followed by a story telling mantra, which created the site's main theme. A storyboard (wireframe) presentation became the project manager's blueprint. A selection of production crew who ultimately created script, pre, on location, and post production shot HD content. A great deal of time was spent on 3D rendering and creating visual effects. Once completed, it was handed over to Flash Actionscript programming team, working closely with PHP programmers, web structural designers, CSS (menus), SQL database programmers, developing reusable Object modules while weaving the fibers of our site and its core objectives.
With proper knowledge and utilization of right network services, HD content is actually streamed through the world's largest content delivery network (CDN) where demand for bandwidth is substantially higher. Broadband content for DSL & Cable Modem users are seen through NetStairs dedicated servers hosted on Gigabit Ethernet pipes. Mobile video content is actually streamed through NetStairs’ IV8 Intelligent Media Middleware.
Since 2006 we have been touting the industry on how content should be provided for mobile devices. When visiting the site via your mobile device, the goal is to primarily demonstrate how video may be played on multiple smart phones without restrictions. The IV8 Middleware Mobile add-on empowers streamed video reach Apple iPhone® - iPad, Nokia® Symbian Series, BlackBerry® RIM, Google Android®, & the Microsoft Windows® Mobile smart phone series - all with no user configuration. It helps you to mitigate consumer device churn*. Supporting a wide array of devices beyond iPhone promises a wider mobile market presence. When you are ready, NetStairs could painlessly and affordably show you how you could add IV8 ICE CUBE® to your existing online presence.
Under the hood
There are many applied science, core engineering, technological innovation, advanced structural protocols, (beyond scope of this topic) supporting industry standards that make up the site's foundation. The pillars of the site are founded on "Best Practices" and our algorithms. The result clearly demonstrates that management (be it Intranet or Internet) should demand a greater visual user interface with no compromise on functionalities & well planned site engineering. NetStairs has a vast core competence in this area. As IT professionals, we work with your IT team.
While the content resides in cluster of servers, the site is constructed and managed on Drupal.org Content Management System (CMS) Web 2.0 and 3.0 Standards. To learn more about CMS, please visit Wikipedia.
