Digital signage software provider Visix Inc. has introduced its new WayPoint product – an interactive wayfinding and communications solution for corporate and college campuses, healthcare facilities, government buildings and other institutions.
"Today's audiences expect wayfinding and interactivity," Tonya Pritt-Dennis, director of client services for Visix, said in the announcement. "Many of our clients produce beautiful content, yet need help with interactive designs and integrating multiple information channels in an intuitive, attractive layout."
According to Visix, WayPoint is a bundled solution, combining selected content modules in layouts designed with the client's logo, colors and branding. Content modules can include digital signage message playlists, auto-updating news, weather and RSS feeds, and Google maps showing places of interest like admissions, dining halls and bookstores with customized icons.
Custom wayfinding can be substituted for Google Maps, and WayPoint also allows alert notices to be triggered by CAP messages. Matching message templates, data subscriptions, licenses and training are all included in the bundle price.
WayPoint does not include displays or digital signage hardware. It is designed for touchscreen displays and supports multitouch interfaces for easy pan and zoom in maps. The product is powered by Visix's AxisTV digital signage platform and is also compatible with the company's new Announce content management software.
The product will debut in Visix booth 4142 at the InfoComm 2011 exhibition in Orlando, Fla., June 15-17.
