Several technology partners will join X2O Media in booth 823 to demonstrate how the Xpresenter™ digital signage platform can power a variety of screens, from 3D and large-format LED to handheld tablets. X2O players will be driving a gigantic 114-inch NanoSlim display from NanoLumens, an interactive wayfinding screen, tablet applications, and the new X2O Social Hub application. To highlight X2O’s new “Open Content Management Framework” initiative, the X2O Portal will also be supporting third-party players from Exceptional 3D and Frame Jazz.
New From X2O Media at DSE 2012:
Introducing the X2O “Open Content Management Framework”
X2O Media’s Web-based portal not only lets users manage digital assets that are displayed with X2O’s award-winning players, but now integrates with a number of third-party players, including the Frame Jazz Digital Signage Display, and players from Exceptional 3D, providers of glasses-free 3D displays. This “opening” of the X2O Portal is a strategic shift for X2O, which is encouraging player manufacturers to use its powerful content management platform while continuing to support its own players. With the X2O “Open Content Management Framework,” partner players will have access to a comprehensive user management system that allows digital signage network administrators to define user roles and permissions, limiting access to specific portal features, player locations, and content. It also provides them with real-time data feed-management tools. X2O will continue to promote and evolve its own real-time players, including the award-winning NITRO Player.
X2O Social Hub
X2O Media is leading the industry in integrating social media content with digital signage, and will demonstrate the X2O Social Hub for the first time at DSE 2012. Inspired by the success of its extremely popular Twitter™ Cube demo app, X2O Media introduces a next-generation, social-media-based interactive application: the X2O Social Hub. Featuring real-time content from popular sites including Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, the X2O Social Hub allows users to customize their experiences by defining the application’s social media sources. In addition, users can interact with an innovative “YouTube Cube” object to browse YouTube video clips matching their search terms. All X2O Social Hub graphics are presented in an eye-popping 3D format, and the application can be customized with logos and other branding elements.
New Version of NITRO Player: NITRO Multichannel Player
In addition to partner players, X2O Media’s own players will be powering numerous displays in X2O’s booth. DSE 2012 will mark the debut of the new multichannel version of the NITRO Player, which supports several channels of content. The demonstration at DSE will be driving four displays from one cost-effective unit. 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 multitouch touchscreens and for any-resolution output — from single screens to giant multiscreen command centers and video walls.
Interactive Meeting Room Signs
The Xpresenter™ Meeting Manager software displays meeting room reservations and event schedules that are updated directly from Microsoft® Outlook® or by touching the interactive meeting room display screen. Coupled with the cloud-based X2O Portal — a comprehensive content management portal — users can quickly schedule and monitor content from an intuitive Web interface.
New Version of Xpresenter™ vClips Powered by NITRO
X2O Media will display the latest version of its Xpresenter™ vClips video kiosk, the first product to be powered by the NITRO graphics platform. The Xpresenter vClips video kiosk is a complete interactive video application that allows users to browse and play back video clips using a simple touch-screen interface. With NITRO, the latest version of vClips combines new dynamic display capabilities, including a 3D video carousel that displays HD videos with simple on-screen navigation.
