X20 Updates Xpresenter to 3.0

X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for professional digital signage applications, has just version 3.0 of its enterprise digital signage platform, Xpresenter™, available.

Version 3.0 includes an overhaul of the Xpresenter Template Maker, the only patented authoring application running inside Microsoft® PowerPoint®, to integrate content management and simple drag-and-drop placement of objects, in addition to support for 3-D objects and animations. Content creation is further simplified with new Microsoft Office add-ins for PowerPoint, Word, and Excel®, making it easier than ever for users to update content.

Template Maker 3.0 has been bolstered to integrate content management that used to be a separate application, making it more efficient than ever to create and schedule compelling content for one player, or for thousands.

Template Maker includes an extensive "smart object" library for the quick and simple creation of content utilizing videos, images, PowerPoint slides, RSS feeds, live information sources, and much more. Taking advantage of enhancements to PowerPoint 2007, Template Maker 3.0 streamlines the content creation process with intuitive drag-and-drop placement of these objects onto the canvas. Version 3.0 also includes support for 3-D objects and animations, enabling the creation of innovative elements such as rotating video surfaces, 3-D tickers, and dynamic graphical elements animated in 3-D space.

Additionally, new Xpresenter add-ins for Microsoft Office provide users with the freedom to author content outside of Template Maker in PowerPoint, Word, or Excel. The Xpresenter Office add-ins appear as custom toolbars directly inside the Office Ribbon, Microsoft's innovative user interface that was first introduced with the Windows® 7 Microsoft Office release. This tight integration allows Xpresenter users to publish content directly from their favorite Office applications to display screens on the X2O network. This streamlined content publishing workflow saves content managers considerable time and reduces the need to learn new tools and applications.

"With Xpresenter 3.0 and its enhanced Template Maker, X2O is changing the way users create content," stated David Wilkins, X2O Media's President and CEO. "This latest version embodies 14 years of experience in the broadcast television, digital signage, and enterprise communications industries. We continue to simplify workflow in our quest to make professional-quality digital signage accessible to users of all technical levels."
