Increasingly in the 21st century, companies are adopting new ways of working that take advantage of the latest technologies. This is nowhere more evident than in the computer industry, which by its very nature has to keep pace with developments.

Here at CSB-Digital, we operate a system that would have been simply impossible ten years ago. Although our main base is in Norwich, our actual resources are scattered in several locations. Malone, our resident webmaster extradordinaire, lives in the far northern wilds of England, whilst the website itself is held on special servers in London. Usership of our program has grown to a truly global level, with members of the forum hailing from many different countries, from America to Europe to Asia and Australasia.

The advantages are evident in the multi-cultured and multi-ethnic nature of the AlamDV community, leading to many an interesting debate. Having a high internet profile also enables us to offer after-sales support as if we were located in your home town. Global sales were a rarity before the dawn of the internet and it is only recently that discourse between programmers and users has reached a viable and valuable level, often influencing the direction of AlamDV2's development. This rapport with the customers is something that eludes more traditional businesses.

If you are reading this, the chances are that you are a member of this community. It is all of you that have made AlamDV.com such a friendly and helpful community, one that will endure for a long time in the future. Changes are ahead, of course, what with the imminent release of AlamDV2.5, Chromanator and DigiGrade and Malone's entirely resdesigned website, but the core of what has been achieved here will remain.

Thanks to all of you for your contributions to the community, and we hope that you like all the exciting new things we are working on.

Australasia is, I believe, the series of islands between Asia and Australia, plus Australia and New Zealand.

I could be very wrong, though - geography was never my forte. If anyone knows better, please let me know!

Yes well congratulations on what you have achieved so far and on what I know is to come. I truely hope one day you guys are as big as Adobe etc (not Microsoft cause then I would be too fricken jealous).

Australiasia is a generic term to cover Australia, NZ and Asia. If you mentioned Asia seperately you probably should have said Oceania instead. But who cares ..... well done again.

Even though I very rarely post on here - I have been a user since alam dv1 about 2 years now. It was all thanks to reading an article in a computer video magazine in the UK - soooo gald i did.

I have been wanting special effects software since around 1995 - obviously having no budget has it's drawbacks bigtime but thanks to all of you fantastic programmers and your vision we, the community have something really special - we certainly couldn't be doing this without you either.

Our films and the technology we use can only be as good as the software we use - although it is up to us to push our resources as far as we can get them to go - this is made easier by what you guys do for us.


I know I for one am really excited about your newest developments/software... can't frickin wait!!!!


Thanks again!

All these posts concerning the release of AlamDV 2.5, Chromantor, and Digi-Grade are going to drive me looney!!! tard
I know just about nothing about any of them, but I find myself checking several times a day just to see if they are released yet, or if any info has been released. That is my sad sad state in life.
Is there a firm/partially firm release date we could look forward too??

You guys are great, keep up the great work, I can't wait to see all this news stuff.
