  3. Introducing Global Player online


    From its simple premise, « gaming belongs to the fabric of contemporary life », Global Player explores the thrilling world of casinos: art, food, fashion and travel lie at the core of a unique high-end experience.

    We are delighted to announce that Casinos Austria International, the magazine’s parent company, entrusted us with the design and development of its online edition, which launched on January 25, at the ICE exhibit in London, along with its second print issue.

    The online edition is a natural pendant to the printed reference magazine. It focuses on current trends and topics, and keeps readers abreast of what’s new and what’s hot as the year, and their own travels, unfold.

    It was, therefore, very much designed with the mobile experience in mind, and has been specially enhanced for iPhone use.

    Once added added to the user’s home screen, the site behaves every bit like a native « App », with the added benefit of requiring no installation and no downloads.

    By blending seamlessly with the iPhone’s interface it offers a direct portal to the world of international entertainment — with interesting articles to boot. On the plane, on the train, at the hotel: anywhere a data connection is available.

    The site is so up-to-the-minute that its administrative back-end, also developed in-house at wollzelle, has been specially designed for the iPad, enabling journalists and gaming personalities to publish articles, photos and titbits as events are unfolding in any of the group’s properties around the world! The decentralised newsroom is no longer a thing of the future.

    To provide an optimal experience in any country around the world, the site is transparently served through a complex Content Delivery Network (CDN) that automatically picks the closest geographical source for the data. Fluxiom takes care of streaming and broadcasting images as they arrive, so that they fit right into the magazine’s virtual pages at the right size and compression level.

    Why not try out the site for yourself on your iPhone or computer? We would love to hear your comments. And if you like what you read, remember you can also interact on Facebook.
