MONTREAL — digital signage solutions provider X2O Media and Digi-Box.co.uk have announced a new agreement where Digi-Box will distribute X2O’s broadcast-class digital signage products and services throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
Digi-Box will offer customers X2O’s flagship Xpresenter platform including the Microsoft PowerPoint-based content authoring application; Web-based content management, content distribution, and remote management applications; and other digital signage solutions. Digi-Box will also work closely with X2O to offer creative design services and expertise in managing graphics and content.
Today, digital signage networks want to rival the reach and influence of traditional television networks. In order to accomplish that, the content displayed on digital signs demands the visual quality and up-to-the-second information that viewers see on TV. X2O Media was created by the founders of VertigoXmedia to enable a content and quality revolution within end-to-end digital signage solutions.
The Xpresenter platform features the patented Xpresenter Template Maker, an application that allows PowerPoint users to produce broadcast-quality graphics that incorporate animations, clip art galleries, video clips, and real-time data sources — all without ever leaving the PowerPoint interface. Version 2.1 introduces new functionality including numerous interactive configurations, interactive touch-screens, RFID, BlueTooth, and magnetic card readers for a personalized interactive experience.
Among other features, it adds an LCD and plasma “smart” screen control feature to save power and extend screen life by using simple commands via an RS-232 port.
X2O’s Design Division has extensive experience in design for television and digital signage applications, with graphic design credits in the most demanding television broadcast environments, including high-profile election campaigns and major sporting events.
