X2O Patent for Digital Signage Content Creation

  • Digital signage solution provider X2O Media has announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a patent for X2O Media's unique approach to developing graphics for digital signage. Entitled "Method for Producing Graphics for Overlay on a Video Source," the patent covers the use of an existing application, such as Microsoft PowerPoint, to create a high-end video output featuring graphics, video, live data, and other elements. X2O employs this technology in its flagship product, the Xpresenter suite of digital signage tools.
  • "We're honored to have received this patent, providing further evidence of the unique and innovative role we play in the digital signage industry," said X2O Media President and CEO David Wilkins. "We continue to build on our successes in this marketplace to engineer solutions that make it easier than ever to create even the most elaborate digital signage content with premium quality and professionalism."
  • X2O Media's Xpresenter solution provides an affordable, easy-to-use digital signage system that integrates directly with Microsoft PowerPoint. Digital signage operators can work directly within the PowerPoint interface to produce broadcast-quality graphics that incorporate video, animations, clip art galleries, and real-time data sources. Xpresenter includes a library of graphics templates, custom control panels, video clip previewing, and tools for quickly resizing presentations to fit various display screens and monitors. With minimal effort, Xpresenter users can produce compelling presentations containing live information for virtually any type of display.
