Avatar Studios




Avatar Studios is proud to introduce our latest offering from the Avatar Technologies division – a product that will change the way our clients handle their digital marketing content for the better.

Intercast is a web-based digital asset management system providing simple scheduling of video playlists, custom screen design and digital libraries. Intercast allows the administrator to manage multiple global locations from one interface at any time and any location with Internet connectivity. It simplifies the approval process so your digital content can be quickly approved and distributed to video displays around the country or around the world. The user-friendly interface is compatible with any screen format and is highly secure as content is pulled to the player from behind a company firewall, rather than pushed out.

To complement the Intercast system, Avatar Technologies also developed the Avatar Media Player (AMP) and AMP Touch. AMP can adapt to any video format regardless of size with high-resolution projection or screen display. AMP Touch is a Flash-based, touch-screen version of the Avatar Media Player allowing the user to easily arrange icons on the screen, play/pause/stop video, increase/decrease the size of a video window or layer content all with the touch of a finger. Avatar recently partnered with Lishen Battery Company in Tianjin, China and Demand Energy of Spokane, WA to install the AMP Touch in the two companies’ headquarters.

We would love to show you first-hand how these new technology products can work for your business. Call us today at 314-533-2242 to schedule a one-on-one demonstration.
