MONTREAL -- July 19, 2010 -- X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for professional digital signage applications, today announced a new Microsoft(R) PowerPoint(R) add-in that greatly simplifies the content creation process, allowing users to build their own wayfinder maps for corporate facilities, campuses, airports, public venues, and more.
With the new wayfinder add-in, users of X2O's Xpresenter(TM) digital signage platform can easily import floor plans and create digital, interactive wayfinder maps -- with start and end points and animated directional arrows that indicate the path -- directly inside PowerPoint and publish them to the X2O network. The maps can include a video or an image for both start and end points, and on-the-go signage viewers can even e-mail directions to themselves directly from the interactive screen.
"Our wayfinder maps have been an extremely popular feature in a number of X2O networks, from hotels and conference centers to casinos and airports, and we are glad to now offer this cost-saving tool to our customers on a mass scale," said David Wilkins, X2O Media's President and CEO. "Xpresenter users are already creating a wide variety of graphics and other content for their networks with our PowerPoint-based Xpresenter Template Maker authoring module, and now they can easily create these wayfinder maps as well, saving content managers considerable time and reducing the need to learn new tools and applications."
X2O Media's Xpresenter is an end-to-end platform designed to make creating, managing, and distributing broadcast-quality digital signage content on networks of all sizes available to all. Xpresenter's patented authoring module allows Microsoft PowerPoint users to produce compelling graphics that incorporate animations, smart objects, video clips, and real-time data sources -- all without ever leaving the PowerPoint interface.
