CONCORD, ON--Omnivex Corporation continues to be a leader in software development in the digital signage industry by advancing the functionality of its Moxie software with its latest release. The features of Moxie 6.05 received an enthusiastic response from visitors at the recent Integrated Systems Europe show in Amsterdam and the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas.
Large video walls have become increasingly popular in all types of digital signage deployments. Hardware manufacturers have developed flat screen displays with much thinner bezels than ever before, so it is relatively easy to tile screens together to form one large display. With the magnitude of the video wall in sheer number of displays, combined with the often intricate configuration of screens coupled with complex multimedia content, it is no longer practical to manage such video walls with a single PC.
Omnivex Moxie 6.05 has the functionality to manage video walls driven by any number of PCs to form single or multiple images through the Video Wall Synchronization feature. A video can span multiple PCs, be displayed on multiple screens and remain in frame synchronization, even in the event of one or more Player PCs restarting. The end result is one perfectly unified, visually stunning video wall that is capable of managing the most elaborate content imaginable.
There are numerous upgrades and modified features in Moxie 6.05 to streamline workflow and extend functionality. Users of Moxie 6.05 can set up multiple tasks to synchronize remote files, playlists, schedules, etc. to the Data Server folder. Users can then simply drop content files into a synchronized folder on their network and Moxie will retrieve them. With Moxie’s Data Proxy capability, multiple Players can connect through a single node, dramatically reducing network traffic and improving efficiencies.
Already known for making significant advancements in the digital signage market place, Moxie has been recognized with many awards. Moxie was only introduced to the market twelve months ago and has already been honored by industry experts as the “Best New Premise Based Content Management Software” at the 2009 DIGI Awards. Additionally, two Moxie customers were recognized with 2010 APEX Awards: Portland’s Rose Garden Arena won an award in the Hospitality category for their 250 screen deployment of Moxie powered digital menuboards, while Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment won an award in the Stadiums & Arenas category for their 320 screen Moxie digital signage network throughout Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
