Interactive Video Application Shows Video Highlights in College's Athletics Hall of Fame, While Video Poster Powers Digital Menu Boards in On-Campus Café
MONTREAL — X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for professional digital signage applications, today announced that Le Moyne College in Syracuse, N.Y. is utilizing the company's vClips interactive HD video kiosk and Xpresenter™ Xe Video Poster. Installed by VIZIONefx, vClips is featured in the college's Athletics Hall of Fame to engage visitors and showcase program accomplishments, while four digital menu boards are being powered by Xpresenter Xe in the Dolphin Den on-campus café.
Le Moyne College is an independent, nationally acclaimed college of liberal arts and sciences that draws students from across the U.S. and abroad. In August 2010, the college began a modernization of its Athletics Hall of Fame, a project that included an interactive display to engage visitors and market Le Moyne and its athletics program in new ways. Powered by X2O Media's vClips interactive video application, the display at the entrance to Le Moyne's Henninger Athletic Center showcases video highlights and recaps of individual program accomplishments. Future content will include video messages from coaches, administrators, and the president of Le Moyne College.
In November, Le Moyne College also began installation of digital menu boards in the Dolphin Den on-campus café. Utilizing X2O Media's Xpresenter Xe Video Poster, the menu boards eliminate paper menus by displaying current offerings and pricing for the café's four distinct service stations. With X2O's Video Poster, menus can be scheduled in advance and updated as necessary on a moment's notice. In addition, the displays provide a way to keep the Le Moyne College community informed as they dine by displaying current college news and event updates.
"It was imperative to find solutions which provided the flexibility and depth to meet Le Moyne's needs. We've worked on several projects utilizing X2O Media solutions, including higher education, senior living, and healthcare, and knew that the company's vClips and the Xpresenter Xe Video Poster would be ideal for accomplishing that," said Matt Oswalt, President of VIZIONefx, a digital communications integrator headquartered in Baldwinsville, N.Y. "vClips provides the interactive and expansion capabilities the athletic department requires, while the Video Poster offers simple scheduling of content and smooth graphical transitions for the Dolphin Den. As always, the ease of administration and updating of content are key features of X2O Media solutions. This helps to keep the content fresh and current — important factors of any good digital communication platform."
"Le Moyne is one of the first colleges of its size to incorporate an interactive touch screen as part of its athletics department, and the response has been nothing short of phenomenal. In addition, the entire college has been completely engaged by the menu boards, which have provided tremendous flexibility to our dining services staff," said Shaun Black, Acting Director of Information Technology at Le Moyne College. "And everyone is excited about our plans for future expansion of the solutions, which will connect with a campus-wide digital channel, CAMPUSefx, via X2O's Xpresenter platform."
vClips is a complete interactive video application that allows users to browse and play back video clips as well as Microsoft® PowerPoint® slides using a simple touch-screen interface. Ideal for any application requiring on-demand video playback, vClips combines the highest quality HD video and graphics output with simple and flexible content management tools.
Available in three cost-effective versions, Xpresenter Xe is a professional digital signage system for users who don't require the full range of features found in X2O Media's enterprise Xpresenter digital signage platform. Powered by X2O's exceptional graphics-rendering technology, the Video Poster edition displays videos and images, with an optional crawling ticker and 3D animated logo. Any day-to-day updates to the on-screen content can be made quickly and easily via a Web-based control screen.
