AMX has announced a new version of its Inspired XPert digital signage platform that improves support for larger deployments, adds a new player box that can install at the panel, and some emhanced and streamlined content management workflow features.
“Today a typical digital signage shopper evaluates his choices based on the content a vendor creates; not considering how difficult it can be to create and manage their own content – especially in larger deployments with multiple contributors. The end result is often digital signage messaging without the desired impact,” says Robert Noble, AMX Chief Technology Officer.
“Inspired XPert offers intuitive templates that allow multiple users to quickly create engaging signage content – and through its workflow management tools – funnel the content to an administrator who can check for quality and branding concerns before publishing. With Inspired XPert, the beautiful signage you envisaged when you installed your network appears on your screens each and every day.”
With a 1080p-enabled player, Inspired XPert delivers HD multimedia content across a building, a campus or around the world. Professionally developed, ready-made templates let users create layered, custom messages consisting of video, images, animation, online content, newsfeeds and advertisements. The templates allow users to place the video, text and images, independently, anywhere on the screen.
Still, for those who prefer to outsource their content creation, AMX offers an experienced team of graphics designers who work directly with customers to develop a set of templates that effectively communicate a brand message.
In addition to its ease of use, Inspired XPert has capabilities that go beyond conventional digital signage by giving users the ability to orchestrate these with lighting, audio, and other triggered events through AMX NetLinx® Control.
