X2O Media to Unveil 'Open Content Management Framework' at DSE 2012

Powerful X2O Portal Now Supports Third-Party Digital Signage Players

Montreal - March 5, 2012 - X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for real-time visual communication applications, today announced that it will introduce its new "Open Content Management Framework" initiative at DSE 2012. With "Open Content Management Framework," third-party manufacturers of digital signage players will be able to integrate with the X2O Portal's content management tools after certification by X2O.


"The opening of the X2O Portal for integration with third-party partner players is a strategic move in our effort to display any content on any screen, anywhere," said X2O Media President and CEO David Wilkins. "The X2O Portal will continue to support our own players, but now networks utilizing players from other makers have access to all the benefits of our powerful content management platform."

The X2O Portal is a comprehensive cloud-based platform for managing and scheduling all content on digital signage networks of any size, including images, videos, graphics, and live data. By combining content management with network monitoring and customizable reporting features, the X2O Portal provides unprecedented power through an extremely user-friendly Web-based interface that greatly reduces the resources and time required to set up, control, and maintain a digital signage network.

With the X2O Portal, third-party manufacturers of digital signage players now have access to a comprehensive user management system that allows digital signage network administrators to define user roles and permissions, limiting access to specific portal features, player locations, and content; it also provides them with real-time data feed management tools. The new combined solution supports most industry-standard formats and protocols such as HTTP, SSL, FTP, XML, and RSS.

At DSE booth 823, the X2O Portal will be supporting players from partners Exceptional 3D and Frame Jazz to demonstrate the benefits of the "Open Content Management Framework."
