Thomas Cook :: Technical Direction for broadband/ video travel site

thomas-cook-inspires-3 It was my responsibility to manage, plan, develop and implement a ‘revolutionary’ video-based travel website, specifically for broadband, for their client, Thomas Cook. The site featured detailed holiday searches that provided video-based content for all countries, resorts and hotels on their database. Another feature was the ability to send any of these videos directly to your mobile, you PC, Mac or even iPod. Developed in Flash, with a JavaScript powered Windows Media overlay for the video content, I also oversaw the development of the Java backend and its’ bespoke CMS that provide the site with XML based API’s, liaising daily with the third party providers on all areas like, video streaming, mobile delivery, tracking as well as attending numerous project and planning meetings with the Thomas Cook management.
