LENEXA, Kan. — Keywest Technology has announced the immediate availability of MediaXtreme MediaZone, a new turnkey digital signage solution that provides all of the hardware and software needed to produce and schedule playback of professional digital signage channels.
MediaZone eliminates the sourcing of third-party hardware and loading digital signage software tools by providing an integrated hardware and software solution that comes ready to use out of the box.
“MediaZone is a direct response to that segment of the market needing a digital signage system that can be plugged in, turned on and ready for immediate use,” said Keywest Technology president Nick Nichols. “This factory-integrated solution delivers all of the software and computer hardware needed to create professional digital signage results without the headache of loading your own software.”
Keywest Technology makes MediaZone available with four hardware configurations, each matching the specific requirements of different types of digital signage users.
MediaZone software functions include:
- MediaZone editor, which blends common PC media, graphics and audio files in real time in up to four “media zones” plus a background zone.
