Software News : Ferrule Media introduces new software developed using SAM, AmigaOS 4.1 and Hollywood

Software News

To help boost the amiga-spirit in 2009 i would like to give some information that hopefully will inspire the amigausers on this site!

I'm one of the founders of Ferrule Media (www.ferrule-media.no), a new company that is developing software and information-channels to be used in dentistry. We are now in the early process of releasing our software in Norway and Denmark. I'm a dentist of profession and an ex amiga-demoscene-graphician.

We do all our development using OS4/OS4.1 and Hollywood/Hollywood Designer

Ferrule Media has at the moment finished two projects:

Project 1 :

Dental Kanal - an informationchannel to be used in dentists waitingroom. At the moment we cover 23 topics about dentistry. These topics are displayed to the patients while they wait for their treatment.

Project 2 :

Dental Info - a program that helps the dentist in the process of informing patients while they get their treatment in the dental-chair. This is done by offering a series of illustrations to cover both problems and treatment of different topics in dentistry.

On our homepage www.ferrule-media. it is possible to download demos of our programs to Windows and macOS. There are also lots of screenshots of the graphical userinterface and design. (and remember that everything is made using amigaOS 4 / 4.1 and Hollywood Designer). The homepage is available in norwegian and danish.

We presented Dental Kanal and Dental Info to the public in December08 with great success! We believe that 2009 will become an interesting year.

In the end I would like to send some special grettings to Andreas Falkenhahn!. Andreas has done a superb job developing his products Hollywood and Hollywood Designer. With his software we are able to produce software using amigas an then simply compile versions to support windows, macos in addition to all flavors of amigaOS. It is really amazing!

I do hope that more users will buy SAM, OS4.1 and Hollywood / Hollywood Designer and see what it has to offer!

best regards

Thanks alot! :)

If you want to try out the demos I will give you some hints :

Dental Kanal : The pc/mac-demos on the homepage are in a lower resolution than the actual product. The correct resolution is 1366 * 768.

Dental Info : the demo is limited to only show illustrations about dental-Implants. Here is some info about how to get the most out of the software :

The mainscreen will show you the 16 topics - 8 topics on each page, and you switch the page by pressing the large arrows.

By pressing a topic you will enter the illustrations :

1) If you click on an illustration it will "zoom" in or out - it will come in handy if the patient sits far from screen.

2) On the illustration-screen you will see a "ferrule media"-logo on the bottom to the right. If you click on the logo you will enter a new meny with an overview of all illustrations present at the given topic, with written descriptions to each picture. This is added to give the dentist an overview of what illustrations are present, and learn how to use the program quicker.

3) On the main-screen there is a info-button - by pressing this you will enter a limitied version of our homepage.

Best regards

Q: Why Are Dentist Miserable People?

A: Cos they are always looking down in the mouth.

Yep, you would never make it in "Last Comic Standing", but keep pulling!

This is a real interesting topic! Anyone into medical applications with the Amiga?

@ Snuffy

Hi there!

We do own the norwegian Trademark named "Medical Kanal" (medical channel). I guess time will show. :)
