The 2012 Windows 8 Application - Partner of the Year Award goes to RunAtServer
Radio Canada/CBC has committed to being available on every platform in order to distribute their multimedia content to all Canadians before 2015. As part of this plan, Runatserver was approached to broaden Radio Canada’s audience for the Tou.tv web portal. The result is a three screen solution which incorporates a Windows 8 app, a Windows Phone app and a Xbox Kinect app which allows more than 10 million users in Canada access content from Tou.tv.
RunAtserver used Windows 8 as it offers a multitude of choices regarding programming models, allowing them to reuse and maximize code across all three apps. RunAtserver was also one of the first companies around the world to take advantage of the Team Foundation Server offered through Windows Azure, to ensure continuous uptime for the apps.
RunAtserver recognized the Windows 8 platform created a tremendous opportunity to offer its customers unique touch apps that users would love and took advantage of the wide range of unique features of Windows 8 to improve the user experience on its platform. The end solution used a consistent modern UI with interactive tiles that made it natural for users to go from one app to another, unique to this platform. The integrated Share feature, exclusive to Windows 8, allows users to connect to any social network from anywhere inside the app while enjoying a Tou.tv show.
We are very proud to announce that Runatserver is the Windows 8 Application Partner of the Year 2012.
Runatserver is working very hard for months now to develop very nice Windows 8 applications. Each of them make the whole team feel very proud of its work and commitment towards its clients.
Runatserver thanks its passionate team of developers who continue to create more and more excellent and unique Windows 8 apps, meeting the needs and expectations of the users.
Runatserver also thanks all its clients and partners for their trust and loyalty. This Impact Award is an important and meaningful distinction for our whole team. Thank you all.
