Company Quote:
“At CETW, we will be teaming up with several of our partners to show how the Xpresenter(TM) platform can easily power a wide variety of displays, from 3D to LED and everything in between,” said David Wilkins, president and CEO of X2O Media. “In addition, we will be debuting our new Digital Signage Social Media Pack — designed to take advantage of social media as a dynamic content source — and demonstrating Xpresenter’s integration with Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R). This new capability enables users to automatically display content from SharePoint to digital displays, mobile devices, and employee desktops.”

X2O Media at CETW 2011:
In booth 537, X2O will be joined by several of its technology partners to demonstrate how the Xpresenter(TM) digital signage platform can power a variety of screens, including 3D screens from Exceptional 3D; LED screens from Trans-Lux; LCD flat-panel displays; in addition to tablets and smartphones. Xpresenter provides an end-to-end solution for the creation, management, and distribution of content at a fraction of the time and cost of other solutions. The software’s power can be extended to the Web, enabling users to control, monitor, and manage their digital signage network via a Web-based control screen from anywhere in the world with the X2O Portal.

New Products From X2O Media at CETW 2011:

Digital Signage Social Media Pack
X2O Media’s Digital Signage Social Media Pack is a new set of templates and objects specifically designed to display content from popular social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook on digital signage screens. The templates and objects can be personalized using X2O’s PowerPoint(R)-based authoring tool — providing network operators with the flexibility to select the format that best fits their display content strategy — and displayed in the highest image quality with the Xpresenter(TM) Player.

Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Integration with Xpresenter(TM)
At CETW 2011, X2O Media will demonstrate the integration of its Xpresenter(TM) platform with the Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) enterprise collaboration platform. Through this tight integration, Xpresenter users are able to link to SharePoint information such as calendars, announcements, and even dashboards to quickly and easily display information on a variety of screens throughout an organization, including mobile phones, tablets, and desktops. Links to SharePoint information are automatically updated to the screens in real time, greatly simplifying content management and reducing staff workload.

For timely messages and alerts, information can be entered directly into SharePoint and quickly sent throughout an organization or to specific staff or locations. For more creative collaboration and knowledge sharing, employees can also publish videos, images, and PowerPoint(R) slides that appear within the SharePoint interface, enabling exciting possibilities such as product demos, training videos, and team announcements. The result is a powerful communications tool with the look and feel of a corporate TV channel.

The total number of votes was a whopping 14,377, meaning that, on average, each reader cast their vote in three or four categories.”
