MONTREAL — May 25, 2010 — X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for professional digital signage applications, today announced that its Xpresenter(TM) digital signage platform is being utilized by Inspiration Ministries in “The City of Light,” a global mission outreach and media training center located on 93 acres in Lancaster County, South Carolina. Inspiration Ministries is using its digital signage network in a wide variety of ways, from improving internal communications and administrative efficiency, to providing visitors with detailed information on the organization.

The City of Light is a multi-year $150 million project that replaces several of Inspiration Ministries’ separate facilities scattered across Charlotte. To better communicate with staff and campus guests, Inspiration Ministries required a state-of-the-art digital signage network that could support a wide variety of applications, including interactive displays, while being easy for multiple users to update. To meet these needs, the organization chose X2O Media’s Xpresenter digital signage platform.

“Implementing this emerging technology on such a broad scale in a matter of a few months was very challenging,” recalled Cecil Elmore, CIO of Inspiration Ministries. “X2O Media proved to be an exceptional partner. Their contributions were central to the overall communications and messaging plans of Inspiration Ministries. David Wilkins and his team went above and beyond the call of duty, and we highly recommend them.”

“We’ve embraced technology to better spread our message,” said Julie Bridges, Senior Project Manager for Inspiration Ministries. “Utilizing digital signage has proven to be invaluable in achieving our goals. Xpresenter has allowed us to do a number of exciting things that increase efficiency and better communicate with visitors. In addition, X2O worked closely with our graphics team to create a consistent look and feel for each screen, and developed multiple Web control screens to manage more efficiently the workflow of different applications, such as our Call Center and bookstore.”

To increase efficiency in the WorldReach Ministry Headquarters, Xpresenter links with Microsoft(R) Outlook(R) allowing meeting room updates to be automatically displayed, while screens in the prayer room and call center allow employees to see and track prayer times and what prayer requests are coming in. Xpresenter provides Inspiration Ministries with a simple and convenient way to communicate with employees and display employee news such as new hires and promotions. It also provides a way to send alerts in the event of an emergency on campus.

In the International Welcome and Prayer Center, a donor display scrolls the names of those who have contributed to The City of Light project. Interactive touch-screens in the Center are used to disseminate detailed information about Inspiration Ministries to visitors featuring rich content such as footage from Inspiration Ministries’ newly launched television network, Halogen. For The City of Light’s bookstore, displays provide information on products for sale, while in the café menu screens show prices for coffee and food, in addition to specials and promotional items.

“We are proud to have our Xpresenter utilized at The City of Light, a project that truly demonstrates what can be accomplished with advanced digital signage solutions,” stated David Wilkins, X2O Media’s President and CEO. “From third-party software integration, to streamlined content creation and updating, to adapting the workflow for each different application to handle a wide variety of video formats and other content, Xpresenter has everything needed to enhance the worship environment.”

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. With the latest release of the platform, version 3.0, X2O has bolstered Xpresenter Template Maker, the only patented application running inside Microsoft(R) PowerPoint(R), with integrated content management and an extensive “smart” object library for the quick and simple creation of content featuring videos, images, PowerPoint slides, RSS feeds, live information sources, and much more.
