Volta Launches Simian™ -- Innovative Online Presentation & Workflow Management Tool for the Production Community

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - Volta, a leader in custom web applications, announced the official launch of Simian™ -- an innovative online presentation and workflow management tool for the production industry. With Simian, companies can easily create presentations, organize workflow and customize reels for intended audiences.

To view a demo of the new software application, go to:

Simian's "Projects" feature brings discipline to the production life cycle by providing creative teams with a collaborative platform that requires no waiting. Production partners and clients can review assets and win approvals quickly and seamlessly.

Simian's "Reel Creator" helps clients evolve to the next stage of client communications, with faster reel creation and sharper presentations.

Simian allows users to take advantage of reel analytics -- clients can track which spots were watched, how many times, and at a full or partial viewing.

The application is right for any creative company involved in commercials, music videos and film production, as category and credit fields can be filled in with users' own designations rather than being held to pre-populated fields.

Simian's advanced features include:

-- Enhanced user interface: standardized data screens and simple file upload

-- Innovative media management: RSS feeds allow one-stop data management so videos and commercials can be easily pulled, customized for look and feel, and integrated into the studio's website

-- Spots automatically convert to iPhone format

-- Manage iPhone-compatible company website within Simian

-- Projects/Brand-able Web-Based Presentations

-- Integrated projects & media library provide seamless data share including entire reels

-- Advanced reel tracking

-- Social Casting

-- Customizable categories & credits

-- The ability to send multiple reels in one email

-- Vanity URLs

-- Display spots and categories from Simian on company websites
