X2O Media has announced new Microsoft Office add-ins for PowerPoint, Word and Excel that work with its Xpresenter digital signage platform, with the goal of making it easier for users to update content.
The Xpresenter Office add-ins appear as custom toolbars directly inside the Office Ribbon, Microsoft’s user interface that was first introduced with Office 2007. This integration allows Xpresenter users to publish content directly from their favorite Office applications to display screens on the X2O network. This content publishing workflow saves content managers considerable time and reduces the need to learn new tools and applications.
“Microsoft Office is used by millions of people every day for creating and updating content. It is a platform everyone already knows,” stated David Wilkins, X2O Media’s president and CEO. “By integrating the Xpresenter platform with industry-standard tools such as Microsoft Office, X2O is once again leading the way towards making professional-quality digital signage and enterprise communications accessible to everyone.”
X2O’s Xpresenter is an end-to-end platform designed to make creating, managing, and distributing broadcast-quality digital signage content on networks of all sizes available to all. Xpresenter’s patented authoring module allows Microsoft PowerPoint users to produce compelling graphics that incorporate animations, smart objects, video clips, and real-time data sources — all without ever leaving the PowerPoint interface.
