X2O Focuses on Digital Workplace Solutions at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015

X2O Platform Enables Easy, Data-Driven, Channel-Based Visual Communications Throughout the Enterprise

MONTREAL -- Oct. 1, 2015 -- X2O Media, a Barco company, today announced that it will feature its award-winning X2O platform for enterprise visual communications at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2015, Oct. 4-8 in Orlando, Florida. Attendees will get a first-hand look at the platform's innovative applications built to support today's digital workforce, including the new X2O.Join Connected Desktop application. In addition, X2O will present a session titled "Powering the Digital Workplace."


"In an effort to nurture and improve employee engagement, achieve higher levels of collaboration, and ultimately promote better decision-making, savvy enterprises are looking to visualization and digitization. The X2O platform makes it easy to do exactly that," said David Wilkins, president of X2O Media, a Barco company. "At the Gartner Symposium, CIOs and IT executives will find out how the X2O platform can empower anyone in the organization to quickly and easily create, distribute, and share data-driven content."

Designed to deliver real-time visual communications to the right audience, at the right time, on the right device, the X2O platform transforms enterprises into digital workplaces by providing employees with tools to create, distribute, and view dynamic visual channels. The X2O platform delivers the following solutions:

* Connected Desktop for users to view and interact with X2O channels directly from their desktop. Specific use cases include company news channels, business information dashboards, interactive polls, and live alerts.
* Connected Workspace designed for multiple users, where teams collaborate in a shared virtual workspace either online or in huddle spaces -- enabling document and desktop sharing, video conversations, polling participation, and more.
* Connected Workplace where users communicate in real time via X2O channels displayed throughout the enterprise on digital signage displays, video walls, and mobile devices.
* Connected Workforce allowing organizations to harness the power of the X2O platform to share real-time content with remote workers across campuses and around the globe. This means companies can maintain up-to-date communications across entire workforces, regardless of location.

Making its debut at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2015, X2O will highlight the most recent addition to the X2O platform: the X2O.Join Connected Desktop app. X2O.Join lets users view X2O channels on their desktops in addition to seeing them on digital displays and video walls. These channels can be displayed as floating windows, screensavers, or simple widgets that are pinned to the desktop for continuous real-time updates, as well as broadcast over the network as targeted pop-up notifications or critical alerts that display full-screen security or safety announcements.

During the "Powering the Digital Workplace" session, X2O's vice president of sales, Darin Crosby, will address how the X2O visual communication software platform empowers users to create and push dynamic, data-driven content to anyone, on any device, in real time -- without requiring any programming skills. The 15-minute session will take place at 6 p.m. on Oct. 7 in the Emerging Technologies Pavilion Theater.

X2O Media will exhibit from booth 32 in the Emerging Technologies Pavilion. More information about X2O is available at www.x2omedia.com.
