MetaVisia uses established solutions and technologies, which efficiently reduce the costs and give optimal performance.
PHP is our preferred technology, combined with the considerable advantages of MySQL. MetaVisia also has many websites programmed in ASP and .NET - our next technology option.Quite often, as a simple yet neat header banner or as an entire dynamic website connected to a XML database, our designers use Flash - a powerful technology by Macromedia for creating an attractive appearance.
Apache Server, PHP & MySQL
PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) is a leading technology for advanced web applications; PHP runs on Apache Server, and is widely used in combination with MySQL database.
MySQL is the most popular RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) used over the Internet; it's known for its fast and flawless performance.
We use PHP & MySQL in 80% of the websites we do, taking advantage of its modern, cost-effective and most popular technology.
Microsoft Technology (IIS, ASP, .NET and MS SQL Server)
The software giant Microsoft is a runner-up in the web technologies competition with its ASP and .NET environment based on Internet Information Server (IIS), used in combination with one of the most sophisticated database systems - MS SQL Server.
We use Microsoft technology in about 20% of the websites we do. Although side costs are higher with a Microsoft system, it provides flexibility for complex task solutions, which makes it the best choice for big corporate systems.
MetaVisia uses these technologies in all projects, thus creating a dynamic and contemporary look for the content of all web pages.
Macromedia Flash is a web technology created by Macromedia, which enables websites to show attractive animations, visual effects and interactivity. Specialists declare this to be the most progressive and dynamic web technology. Currently Flash is supported by approx. 98% of the computers worldwide.
MetaVisia implements Flash graphics and animations in websites to create an attractive and dynamic visual appearance. We also have designed several websites entirely in Flash, as well as some interactive Flash applications - Dow Jones Graphical Analysis Charts, Music Player, Promotional Game, Site Tour and others.
XML (Extensible Markup Language) is based on the original markup languages (such as HTML) and provides a very convenient solution for data integration in web pages. It's widely used to display hierarchical structures.
MetaVisia uses XML technology (often in combination with Flash) to represent various graphical elements such as charts, trees, menus, dynamic lists and other data.
Adobe Photoshop is the most popular software for graphic design. This powerful application with numerous features, plug-ins and add-ons empowers designers to free their mind by creating or modifying any image they can imagine. An excellent piece of software for designing artistic graphics and remarkable visual effects.
Photoshop is the main instrument used by our graphic designers. It is used daily, creating the graphics needed for our projects - images, pictures, photo processing, visual effects, mockups, as well as for all the print design work.
Corel Draw is a leading application in vector graphics processing and the most popular tool used by digital artists.
MetaVisia designers work with Corel Draw almost every day for creating logos, vector images and print design materials.
