Leading digital signage software company adds animation and touchscreen features to their flagship product.
ATLANTA, GA – JUNE 4, 2013 – Visix, Inc. has unveiled a major update to its flagship digital signage software application, AxisTV version 8.2. The release includes support for animated layout backgrounds, hot spots and full-screen kiosk capability.
“These feature additions are a direct result of client feedback,” says Tony Martin, Chief Operations Officer for Visix. “Digital signage customers are no longer satisfied to just push RSS feeds and videos into blocks on the screen. They want beautiful, dynamic screen elements and interactivity in order to offer POS services and motivate their audience to take action.”
ANIMATED LAYOUT BACKGROUNDS
AxisTV allows users to configure multi-zone layouts within the software’s Layout Editor. When creating a layout, users choose a layout background design that sits behind their content playlists.
The new feature allows layout creators to choose either a single video created as a video loop or a list of video files intended to play back-to-back as a seamless animation for their background. This adds sophistication to the screen design and draws attention to playlists for improved messaging success.
HOT SPOTS & FULL SCREEN KIOSKS
As many as 75% of digital signage prospects ask for full-screen kiosk support. Many software vendors require custom creative services to accomplish this, but Visix has incorporated hot spots and full-screen kiosk support into their content management software for convenience and economy.
AxisTV version 8.2 allows users to insert a hot spot in the layout editor that will respond to either mouse clicks or touch using easy wizard selectors:
· Choose shape as rectangle, circle or rounded rectangle
· Choose size and location in the layout
· Choose the hot spot image from a library
· Enter the action parameters
· Specify a timeout to switch back to the player
Hot spots offer player actions – such as stop or reboot – as well as switching to full-screen kiosk applications. Common kiosk applications are room booking, queuing management, interactive wayfinding, and point-of-sale systems.
