X2O Media, a provider of digital signage software and content services, today announced that as part of its “Open Content Management Framework,” the company has released an OpenSplash™ Player, which now fully integrates with the X2O Portal.
Supporting video walls, screen zoning with overlapping and depth order, and dynamic content, OpenSplash is a free, multiplatform, open-source media player designed to be driven by any network-based content management system. With the X2O Portal, OpenSplash users now have access to a comprehensive user management system that allows digital signage network administrators to manage content from a browser-based interface, define user roles and permissions, and limit access to specific portal features, player locations, and content. The new combined solution supports most industry-standard formats and protocols such as HTTP, SSL, FTP, XML, and RSS.
“We are excited to add OpenSplash to the rapidly growing list of third-party players supported by the X2O Portal,” said X2O Media President and CEO David Wilkins. “For network operators, having a variety of players all controlled from one central content management system significantly reduces operating costs, while providing a wide variety of display solutions.”
The X2O Portal is a comprehensive, cloud-based platform for managing and scheduling all content – including images, videos, graphics, and live data – from social media and other sources on digital signage networks of any size. By combining content management with network monitoring and customizable reporting features, the platform provides unprecedented power through a user-friendly, browser-based interface that greatly reduces the resources and time required to set up, control, and maintain a digital signage network.
X2O Media will be demonstrating the integration of the X2O Portal with OpenSplash in booth N1541 at InfoComm 2012.
