X2O Media announced that the company was honored with two prestigious awards at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2010 First Annual Awards Dinner, held on Feb. 24.
The annual DSE Apex and Content Awards honor innovation in the development and deployment of technology and creative content for digital signage and digital out-of-home networks. In the Corporate & Government category, X2O was recognized with an Apex Award for the development of an innovative digital signage solution for Unisys Belgium NV, a world-class IT services and solutions provider. In addition, X2O received a Content Award for its data-driven, interactive solution designed specifically for hotel and conference facilities.
The Apex award-winning deployment at Unisys Belgium was implemented by systems integrator AVI-SPL. Utilizing X2O Media's Xpresenter™ digital signage platform, the Unisys implementation ranges from a screen greeting guests in the reception area to a state-of-the-art corporate showcase, as well as providing compelling visual content to meeting rooms, the boardroom, and beyond. The Unisys Solution Showcase offers a hands-on, interactive experience that tells the Unisys story to visitors and prospective customers. The Unisys network displays broadcast-quality content that is dynamic, eye-catching, and keeps visitors informed and continuously engaged.
X2O Media's Content Award-winning solution was created in partnership with PSAV® Presentation Services, a leading supplier of audiovisual and event technology to the hospitality industry. Their jointly delivered solution provides hotel guests and conference attendees with a new communications tool they can use to learn about local attractions, flight information, and hotel services. The graphically rich, custom-branded channel features a variety of content options including 3-D interactive wayfinding, weather conditions, concierge services, conference schedules, and detailed hotel amenity promotions.
"We are exceedingly proud of the digital signage solutions we've provided at Unisys and for the hospitality industry," stated David Wilkins, X2O Media's President and CEO. "It is truly an honor to have our efforts recognized with both the DSE Apex and Content Awards, which celebrate the best that the digital signage industry has to offer."
