Visix, Inc., has announced the pre-release debut of its latest AxisTV platform, code-named Proteus. The new platform will become the underlying architecture for future unified communications applications developed by Visix.
Proteus incorporates a large number of visual display improvements that include support for animated backgrounds, text and graphic elements; non-rectangular content areas, and support for touch-screen and interactive applications.
The user experience (UX) is based on the latest best practices for Human-Computer Interaction. The UX will include support for WYSIWYG content creation and preview, as well as drag and drop capabilities from a web browser. A suite of interfaces, tailored to the skills of the user, will enable the most novice user to create professional, animated content. A new theme library will offer various professional backgrounds and icons, in variants with and without animations. Professional users can incorporate multimedia content from most popular design and editing applications available in the commercial market.
The new platform supports a unified data acquisition model. Data can be pulled from or pushed to popular databases such as SQL Server and Oracle as well as any Microsoft ODBC-compliant database. Popular non-database sources, such as RSS feeds, web services, and flat files are also seamlessly supported. A wide range of multimedia file formats are supported, including .JPG, .PNG, .PPT, .SWF, .AVI, .MPG and many more.
Once released, the platform will have been in various stages of design, development and testing for more than eighteen months. The first of the new platform products will ship in the fourth quarter of this year.
