Octane Media was contacted by Hutter Performance with a request to bring their online presence into the “new media” age. Our main objective was to create a content management system for them which supported embedding HD video, race team biographies, and project vehicle biographies. Hutter specializes in high end modifications to Corvettes and other LSX powered vehicles. In order to demonstrate their experience and focus in this market, we put together an Adobe Flex application called “Corvette Builder”. This online application provides the ability for the user to build their own package of parts and send it to the Hutter sales staff for a personalized quote. The Flex framework adds some familiar features of desktop applications such as drag and drop as well as state management.
The site features a fully featured, secure content management system which can be used to manage all of their products, race teams, project vehicles, and high definition videos. The videos are hosted on a social media video sharing site called Vimeo. This reduces hosting costs and provides another outlet for their video content.
Technologies used in this project are ASP.NET, Flex, Flash Video, Google Maps, jQuery, and standards compliant HTML and CSS.
