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 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 in the announcement. "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 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 in Las Vegas.
