New NITRO Graphics Platform

X2O Media's next-generation NITRO graphics platform will be making its debut at DSE 2011. Providing unparalleled performance and exciting new display possibilities for any kind of dynamic digital signage content, NITRO combines stunning graphics and real-time animations with powerful features such as an innovative Channel-in-Channel™ capability for a virtually unlimited number of overlapping channel layers, and integrated 3D support for the creation of 3D objects and tickers. Representing an evolutionary leap in digital signage graphics, the platform is bolstered with support for multi-touch touchscreens and for any resolution output — from single screens to giant multi-screen command centers and video walls. Visitors to X2O's booth at DSE 2011 will experience a demonstration of the NITRO technology on a video wall display featuring Simbioz's Touchless Interactivity technology. X2O will be introducing products powered by the NITRO graphics platform throughout 2011.

New Wayfinder Add-In for Xpresenter™

At DSE 2011, X2O Media will showcase a new Microsoft® PowerPoint® add-in that greatly simplifies the content creation process, allowing users to build their own wayfinder maps for corporate facilities, campuses, airports, public venues, and more. With the new wayfinder add-in, users of X2O's Xpresenter™ digital signage platform can easily import floor plans and create digital, interactive wayfinder maps — with start and end points and animated directional arrows that indicate the path — directly inside PowerPoint and distribute them to their digital displays. The maps can include a video or an image for both start and end points, and on-the-go signage viewers can even e-mail directions to their mobile devices directly from the interactive screen.

Xpresenter™ 3.0

With Xpresenter™ 3.0, X2O Media takes dynamic communications on digital displays to the next level, combining unprecedented ease of use with the broadcast-quality video graphics the company is known for. Xpresenter is a complete suite of applications that allows users to create dynamic content for their digital displays quickly and easily, distribute the content, and then monitor activity on the displays using powerful remote management tools. The Xpresenter Template Maker 3.0 authoring tool has been bolstered to integrate content management, making it more efficient than ever to create and schedule compelling content straight from the familiar PowerPoint® interface. In addition, it includes a newly designed "smart" object library for the quick and simple creation of content featuring videos, images, PowerPoint slides, RSS feeds, live information sources, and much more. Version 3.0 also includes support for 3D effects, enabling the creation of innovative elements such as rotating graphics. Other enhancements to the platform include a more powerful digital asset management system, ad campaign management tools, and advanced rule-based scheduling tools.

Xpresenter 3.0 also features Microsoft® Office add-in tools for PowerPoint, Word, and Excel®, making it easier than ever for users to update content. The Xpresenter Office add-ins appear as custom toolbars directly inside the Office Ribbon. This tight integration allows Xpresenter users to publish content directly from their favorite Office applications to display screens on the X2O network.
