MONTREAL, CANADA--X2O Media announced a new feature for its Xpresenter platform that allows users to leverage Microsoft SharePoint content for digital signage displays. Using X2O Media's professionally designed smart templates, SharePoint content can now be quickly and easily displayed as broadcast-quality graphics without the need to duplicate the content creation effort, saving companies both time and resources.
Widely adopted by a variety of companies to meet their internal communication needs, Microsoft's SharePoint is an integrated suite of server capabilities that can help improve organizational effectiveness by providing comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating shared business processes, and facilitating information sharing for better business insight.
To improve internal communications for digital signage deployers without adding costs, X2O Media has created a link to SharePoint in its Xpresenter platform, allowing the program's content to be used as source material for digital signage screens. Using X2O Media's professionally designed smart templates, information on upcoming events, company announcements, schedules, and business intelligence dashboard data is automatically formatted and ready to be displayed as high-end, broadcast-quality graphics and animations. Real-time alerts are immediately displayed across all screens on the network for any breaking news or emergency announcements.
"We are excited to introduce this new functionality to the digital signage market, which will dramatically improve content creation workflow for our customers using SharePoint," said David Wilkins, X2O Media president and CEO. "For digital signage displays, the link to SharePoint acts much like a live data link to a database, Web site, or other source. Once content is updated in the program, it will automatically be updated on the display. This allows users to improve internal communication efficiencies without having to invest time and effort in transferring content they have already created in another tool."
