The objective for Zandi Digital is to make available clever programs to end-users that want and need something more diverse. Bluebird is the current application being developed by Zandi Digital. Bluebird will have the ability to compress multimedia(image, audio, or video) and text into one single file and later opened for reading or editing with Bluebird on Microsoft Windows® operating systems. A illustration is at http://www.videonotepad.net
The ongoing design of the Bluebird file format has given insight and future perspective on what can be achieved with xml. Different approaches to features not purposed during the pre-stage of development have welcomed the magic of true interactive documentation. For example. Oil rig workers need to learn about a new seal design for a pump that needs upgrading. A flat 2D drawing and engineer scribble is enough to cause panic on where to start. With Bluebird, any animated or 3D static rendered model saved in any of the supported movie formats can be compressed with any rich or plain type document. Then this training document can be edited to provide an interactive experience. Interactive experience pertaining to underlying script text control, script media control, speak text, network integration, link focusing, doc switching, and other editing capabilities not seen yet for interactive docs.
For the documentation beginners and experts out there this will be a change of angle on how they go about illustrating their presentations and tutorials. What started as simple program has now become complex, demands detail, and focus on the beauty of electronic education it can simplify. The release of this application is still not known and the design revolves around existing file format support that are common to windows® users. The main focus is to point out specific design related issues that are open and gladly welcomed to any other company or current reader wishing to support and push the next generation of integrated file formats.
