MONTREAL, CANADA--Following a strategic alliance with PSAV Presentation Services, X2O Media announced that the company has entered into an integration partnership with Newmarket International. Through the partnership, customers using X2O's Xpresenter platform will be able to export event data directly from Newmarket's Delphi — the hospitality industry's most comprehensive sales and catering solution — to display screens on their digital signage networks.
"Newmarket International is excited to welcome X2O Media as a certified partner," said Jeff Hiscox, president, Newmarket International. "X2O is a great example of how to drive best-in-class solutions for the enterprise by leveraging points of integration."
Under the exclusive agreement between X2O Media and PSAV, X2O Media provides content design, management, distribution, monitoring, integration, and support services for PSAV customers' digital signage deployments, offering a true end-to-end digital signage solution for hotels and meeting and convention centers worldwide.
Customers implementing X2O Media's Xpresenter digital signage platform will now have the ability to export information directly from Delphi, including event information, meeting room information, and other announcements, to display screens within a property. This capability limits the need for rekeying information; thus, greatly reducing time spent by hotel staff on content updates, and ensuring that accurate data is posted in real time at any point in the digital signage network.
"Through our partnership with X2O Media, we have been able to develop a number of exciting digital signage experiences for the hospitality industry with amazing content delivery," said Denis Lesak, PSAV's Corporate Director, Digital Signage Services." The integration partnership between Newmarket and X2O Media adds yet another level to our offering, allowing the automation of communications with guests and staff members for the ultimate digital signage solution."
X2O Media's Xpresenter is an affordable, easy-to-use digital signage system that allows Microsoft PowerPoint® users to produce broadcast-quality graphics that incorporate animations, clip art galleries, video clips, and real-time data sources — all without ever leaving the PowerPoint interface. Xpresenter includes a style gallery of graphics templates, custom control panels, video clip previewing, and tools for quickly resizing presentations to fit the varying dimensions of output displays and monitors. With Xpresenter, users can easily produce compelling presentations containing live information with minimal effort.
"We are delighted to extend our ongoing relationship with PSAV and welcome the exciting opportunities provided by our new integration partnership with Newmarket," said David Wilkins, X2O Media President and CEO. "For the hospitality industry, this is truly a winning combination. We are not only providing rich, interactive content solutions, but are taking digital signage to the next level with Delphi software integration to improve on our customers' operational efficiencies."
