X2O Media, a provider of software for real-time visual communication applications, teamed up with video display provider Prysm Inc. at this year's Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam, Netherlands. During the show, the X2O platform pushed live tweets to a Prysm video wall while powering the Prysm Twitter Cube application in the ISE press room.
Built on Laser Phosphor Display technology, Prysm's life-size displays are "designed to suit the most creative applications," the company said. At ISE 2013, the Prysm featured a four-by-three video wall at its booth, showcasing the Twitter Shuffle. Live tweets to the #ISE2013 hashtag were displayed on the videowall in a dynamic, animated 3D "shuffle." For a greater level of interactivity for viewers, the content can be controlled via a Microsoft Kinect interface, or through a Web app that is accessed by scanning a QR code with a mobile device. Control options include left/right, and selecting different views of the content including the Twitter Shuffle, Twitter Graph and Twitter Map.
As an ISE press room sponsor, Prysm outfitted the press room with a video kiosk displaying the Prysm Twitter Cube application. Powered by the X2O platform, live tweets were displayed on the cube to allow editors to keep up on the latest show news. The screen can be controlled by "spinning" the cube via a Microsoft Kinect interface, or via a Web app accessed by scanning a QR code.
"Prysm's life-size, high-resolution displays are simply stunning — enabling seamless touch and gesture sensitive interactivity and unmatched power efficiency," said David Wilkins, president and CEO of X2O Media, before the show began. "The company's technology certainly provides an exciting application for our X2O platform and the perfect opportunity to showcase its social media capabilities as well as potential for integration with mobile devices. We're looking forward to seeing our solutions working together at ISE."
