X2O Media at InfoComm 20124 min read
X2O “Open Content Management Framework”
X2O Media’s Web-based portal not only lets users manage digital assets that are displayed with X2O’s award-winning players, but now integrates with a number of third-party players, including Frame Jazz, Exceptional 3D, and OpenSplash. This “opening” of the X2O Portal is a strategic shift for X2O, encouraging vendor players to use its powerful content management platform, while continuing to support its own players. With the X2O “Open Content Management Framework,” network operators will have access to a powerful browser-based content management portal that can connect to a variety of players for 2D and 3D displays.
New Polycom® RealPresence™ Media Manager Integration
As part of X2O’s “Open Content Management Framework,” the X2O Portal is now fully integrated with the Polycom® RealPresence™ Media Manager. Users can access video assets stored in the RealPresence Media Manager directly from X2O’s cloud-based content management tools, and then schedule and deliver them to digital displays, avoiding duplication of effort and greatly simplifying the content workflow.
X2O Social Hub
Inspired by the success of its extremely popular Twitter™ Cube demo app, X2O Media will display its next-generation, social-media-based interactive application, the X2O Social Hub, at InfoComm 2012. Featuring real-time content from popular sites including Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, the X2O Social Hub allows users to customize their experiences by defining the application’s social media sources. In addition, users can interact with an innovative “YouTube Cube” object to browse YouTube video clips matching their search terms. All X2O Social Hub graphics are presented in an eye-popping 3D format, and the application can be customized with logos and other branding elements.
X2O Twitter™ Shuffle
As a highlight of X2O’s social interactivity suite and powered by X2O’s latest-generation player engine, the Twitter™ Shuffle displays real-time Tweets™ in a dynamic shuffle where Tweets dynamically animate in 3D, and fly on and off the screen. For a higher level of viewer interactivity, the screen can be controlled via a Microsoft® Kinect™ interface, or through a Web app that is accessed by scanning a QR code with a mobile device. Control options on mobile devices include moving tiles on the Twitter Shuffle, and switching to other views including a dynamic Twitter Graph and Twitter Map.
Any Content, Any Screen: X2O Tablet Apps
To demonstrate X2O Media’s commitment to making content available on “any screen, anywhere,” X2O will have a number of applications on various tablets including the award-winning Rogers Cup Experience tablet app developed for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™, which was recently honored with a 2012 Industry Excellence Award by the Digital Screenmedia Association.
New Xpresenter™ Live Interactive Presentation System
X2O Media will demonstrate an interactive version of its Xpresenter™ Live conference room solution, a unique application that takes PowerPoint® presentations to a whole new level by adding broadcast-quality effects and transitions, 3D logos and animations, real-time data, and live camera feeds. In addition, the system enables participation by remote users.
At the X2O booth, several partners will demonstrate a range of digital signage technologies:
• Exceptional 3D will showcase its latest glasses-free 3D display and player, which integrates with the X2O Portal content management platform.
• Sharp Electronics will showcase the unrivaled clarity, color reproduction, and uniformity of its professional displays. The new highly sensitive 70-inch PNL702B touch-screen will highlight the abilities of the X2O Social Hub and the new interactive version of the Xpresenter™ Live conference room experience.
• DFI Technologies will provide a 2×2 video wall for the X2O Twitter™ Shuffle demo.
