Announcing DynaScreensaver™

October 29, 2003, London, Ontario, Canada - Keith Peiris, the President, CEO and Chief Creative Director of Cyberteks Design, announced today the launch of the Dynamic Screensaver/Live Desktop and Interactive Zone created for the Atlanta Thrashers NHL Hockey Team.

"What separates Cyberteks Design from a lot of web companies out there is that Keith and the rest of the company have a true passion for hockey," said Thrashers Vice President of Sales & Marketing Derek Schiller. "That love of the game shows through in the quality of the work that they do."

"One thing our new site does is expand our outreach to the local, youth and grassroots hockey communities," said Schiller. "Working with the youth players in the entire Southeast region is an important goal of our fan development initiatives and it made sense to work directly with Keith, who as a youth player himself, knows exactly the type of web offerings that would appeal to this community."

"Atlanta gave us a great opportunity with this project," said Peiris. "They said show us what you can do with an interactive screen saver. This is the kind of project we really enjoy, working with a top-class organization like the Thrashers and creating something brand new." It also gave us an opportunity to work directly with the National Hockey League and the Thrashers, a Time Warner Inc. Company.

"With the re-launch of our Web site, Atlantathrashers.com, we're very proud of the new features that we've added, especially the creation of the Atlanta Thrashers Live Desktop by Cyberteks Design," says Schiller. "This screensaver was designed specifically for the Thrashers, and provides fans with live game updates, video highlights, player stats and an interactive calendar."

DynaScreensaver is a Live Desktop/Dynamic Screensaver that displays the following:

  • Live game scores
  • Play by play details
  • Video highlights
  • Game roster
  • Goal scorers
  • Player statistics
  • League Standings
  • Personalized Calendar with your team games and events
  • Latest news
  • Customized background pictures with your favorite players

This product was developed by London, Ontario based Cyberteks Design, a web design, multimedia and software development company using Macromedia Flash, SQL database integration and "push and pull" technology. It is now used by the Atlanta Thrashers NHL Hockey Team.

The DynaScreensaver builds on the universally accepted and widely used personal computer screensaver that historically has been able to offer only non-current information and images. DynaScreensaver takes screensavers to the next level using Macromedia Flash MX, advanced ActionScripting, database integration, and push and pull technology. This product connects to several data sources, both external and local, to deliver dynamic, ever-changing, always-current multimedia displays that are constantly updated by a remote Internet Server.

The technology used in developing the DynaScreensaver can be used as a marketing tool for many organizations throughout the world. It delivers rotating content you want the consumer to see to the consumer's screen with no action required. The content is refreshed approximately every 30 seconds. The client also has access to an advanced administration menu to add and manage their own content.
