5 reasons why you should be as excited about HTML5 as we are


When the Lookatme™ was launched 10 years ago, it was a breath of fresh air to cultural institutes and brand managers, and a bucket of ice water in the face of the Digital Asset Management sector. Today we’re taking Digital Asset Management to a whole new level.

Lookatme™ is launching a major upgrade to take advantage of HTML5. For those of you who are less technical, HTML5 is a new mobile-compatible format that the web based revolution says needed to happen. What does Lookatme™ moving to HTML5 mean to you? In a word… simplicity.

Welcome to the new world wide web

For a long time there have been annoying aspects of the web where web software and browsers didn’t quite work the way they were designed. Sites looked different on different browsers and even different devices. Functions and features worked on some devices and browser… but not others. HTML5 has been touted as a ‘panacea’ to many of those little annoyances and faults that reared their ugly heads at the most inconvenient times. But that’s now all in the past. HTML5 is here to make everything work better.

The following are just a few of the reasons why you will love the world’s most intelligent and intuitive Digital Asset Management solution even more in its new HTML5 format.

1. Device agnostic

Lookatme™ Digital Asset Management solution looks elegant on all internet enabled devices. This includes PCs, laptops, tablets and smart phones. With HTML5 and the Lookatme™ Digital Asset Management solution, you can work effectively and effortlessly from almost any location.

2. A lot faster

HTML5 is ‘lighter’ in weight, which means a faster-loading web page - up to 10 times faster. So even if you can’t get NBN, don’t worry, we’ll make you feel like you have fast broadband!

3. Better video and audio support

With HTML5 you no longer need to worry about Flash and other third party video and audio players. HTML5 will allow you to view video and audio without having to install and update video and audio players. This takes your device out of the control of IT people and puts it back in your hands.

4. Popular browser support

Your modern, popular browsers all support HTML5 (Chrome, Firefox, Safari IE10+ and Opera). This is great for you, your organisation and the people you work with, as well as those you want to benefit from your digital assets.

5. Just plain better

The HTML5 version of the Lookatme™ Digital Asset Management solution is just plain better. It looks better. It works better. It even feels better. What Lookatme™ did to Digital Asset Management, HTML5 is doing to the web; making it easier and more enjoyable to use. Put simply, even Lookatme™ is better with HTML5.
