Digital signage provider X2O Media, a Barco company, today announced that it will exhibit SharePoint TV powered by the X2O visual communications platform at SPTechCon Austin 2016.
Taking place Feb. 21-24 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas, SPTechCon: The SharePoint Technology Conference is the largest independent SharePoint training conference in the world for SharePoint IT professionals, SharePoint power-users and developers, according to the announcement.
With SharePoint TV on the X2O platform, users can create channels based on content in the popular Microsoft SharePoint enterprise collaboration platform, and automatically push this content onto screens across an organization — from digital signage displays and video walls, to desktop PCs, mobile phones and tablets. Using the intuitive drag-and-drop authoring tools of the X2O platform, channels can be built from a library of smart objects specifically designed to work with SharePoint applications, such as company news and announcements, team calendars, task lists, document browsing and dashboards, the company said. This content can be augmented with other user-generated content such as social media posts, yielding relevant company dashboards that are automatically updated with the latest information.
Information updated in SharePoint is automatically reflected on screens in real time, improving the delivery of information without adding additional processes. Employees can also publish channels featuring videos, images, and PowerPoint slides that appear within the SharePoint interface for more creative collaboration and knowledge sharing.
