ESC web site was developed by FutureVision for the National Television Company
of Ukraine in very short terms, with very specific feature - ability to work
very stable with large number of visitors at the same time. FutureVision fulfilled
this purpose and developed interactive entertainment web site which has integrated Content
Management System. CMS allowed administrators fully control and edit all content
on the web site: upload new photos, new texts and news. As the result, ESC
web site contained plenty of actual and useful information for tourists, guests,
stuff and volunteers.
The design of the site is bright, stylish and eye-catching accurately reflecting
the mood of the show. Entering the web site – very stylish and emotional intro
appears and leads you through the “Awakening” – stylized introduction about
flower of the grape fern blooming legend.
