National Semiconductor 1998 Annual Report CD-ROM

This cross platform CD was mailed with each Annual Report as a visual addendum to the information found in the report. It features nine video clips ranging between 11 seconds and 9 minutes, each video is displayed in 480x360 pixel size running at 15 or 24 frames per second, including a preview of their new ad compaign (see bottom image).

The disc also features an auto-check/auto-install feature to place all the necessary QuickTime™ drivers on the user's system should they not have the appropriate versions, direct links to National's web site and investor pages — with auto call-up of the user's browser — and a auto-install screen saver (for PC systems only).

National provied basic intrface graphics which were processed and enhanced for use by Merlin Media. Merlin also process all video clips — including overcoming substantial audio sync problems in the longest video — and provided National with a ready-to-duplicate master disc.
