X2O Media, a full-service provider of real-time enterprise visual communications solutions, has announced that the company will be demonstrating its SharePoint TV platform at the 2012 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, July 8-12 in Toronto.
SharePoint TV is a visual communication and collaboration platform that lets users create TV-like channels using content already stored in SharePoint. Users can build interactive channels that can be viewed from desktops, tablets, display screens or mobile devices, the company said. With links to SharePoint content and data, any changes made in SharePoint are automatically reflected in the channels, giving viewers instant access to the most relevant enterprise information. In addition, users can fully leverage their investment in SharePoint by presenting the information using eye-catching visuals that should improve internal and external communications.
With SharePoint TV, users can link to SharePoint information sources such as calendars, announcements, project tasks and dashboard data to display information on a variety of screens throughout an organization using graphics and video. SharePoint TV is fully compatible with Windows 8 and Windows Azure.
For timely messages and alerts, information can be entered directly into SharePoint and rapidly sent throughout an organization or to specific staff or locations. For more creative collaboration and knowledge sharing, the company said, employees can also publish videos, images and PowerPoint slides that appear within the SharePoint interface, with the look and feel of a broadcast TV channel.
