Home Projects About Us Contact Us

Company Overview
Element Interactive was founded with a vision to be at the forefront of Interactive DVD development. Element was formed by combining the talents of three businesses with backgrounds in graphic design, motion graphics and software development. These backgrounds cover the fundamental skills needed for the development of engaging interactive titles.

Interactive DVD
Interactive DVD provides a platform for the development of sophisticated games, educational titles, training products and much more, that all play on a standard DVD player using a standard remote control. One of the key developments in Interactive DVD has been the arrival of a new technology called DVD-Extra. DVD-Extra technology means titles that had previously been unfeasible to create, can now become a reality.
