Visix introduces WayPoint Interactive Wayfinding2 min read
WayPoint™ combines interactive wayfinding with digital signage communications for a one-stop information center.
Visix, Inc., a leading digital signage software provider, has introduced its new WayPoint™ product – an interactive wayfinding and communications solution for corporate and college campuses, healthcare facilities, government buildings and other institutions.
“Today’s audiences expect wayfinding and interactivity,” says Tonya Pritt-Dennis, Director of Client Services for Visix. “Many of our clients produce beautiful content, yet need help with interactive designs and integrating multiple information channels in an intuitive, attractive layout. WayPoint™ provides that and more.”
WayPoint™ is a bundled solution, combining selected content modules in layouts designed with the client’s logo, colors and branding. Content modules can include digital signage message playlists, auto-updating news, weather and RSS feeds, and Google maps showing places of interest like admissions, dining halls and bookstores with customized icons.
Custom wayfinding can be substituted for Google Maps, and WayPoint™ also allows alert notices to be triggered by CAP messages. Matching message templates, data subscriptions, licenses and training are all included in the bundle price.
“This is a blend of technology and creative services,” says Dennis. “We continually look to our customers to find out where they need help with their digital signage efforts. We’re looking to fill all of the gaps they encounter, whether technical, creative or in the user experience.”
WayPoint™ does not include displays or digital signage hardware. It is designed for touchscreen displays and supports multi-touch interfaces for easy pan and zoom in maps. The product is powered by Visix’s AxisTV digital signage platform and is also compatible with the company’s new Announce™ content management software.
The product will debut in Visix booth 4142 at the InfoComm 2011 exhibition in Orlando, Florida, June 15-17. For more information about WayPoint™, visit http://www.visix.com/waypoint.html.
