The Commercial Integrator BEST Award in the Digital Signage Software category for this year’s InfoComm goes to X2O Media for developing social interactivity suite of pioneering social media-based applications.
The social interactivity application suite consists of the X2O Social Hub and Twitter Shuffle. X2O Social Hub enables the users to personalize their social media experience by choosing the content to be featured in the application. Its entire graphics are in 3D format and it also allows the operator to customize the application with logos and other branding aspects, catering to businesses’ needs.
Twitter Shuffle, on the other hand, features highly-interactive graphics intending to provide ultimate interactive feel to users. It displays real-time tweets in a dynamic shuffle where it vigorously animates in 3D, flying on and off the screen.
The Twitter Shuffle screen can also be controlled through a Microsoft Kinect interface or through a web app accessed by scanning a QR code, for an advanced level of viewer interactivity. It can be also viewed through Twitter Graph and Twitter Map.
“Social media is a powerful and popular content source for viewers, providing current, relevant and user-generated information,” said X2O Media President and CEO David Wilkins in a press release.
“With our social interactivity suite, integrators can easily harness the power of Twitter, Facebook and more to provide their customers with a truly engaging experience. We are proud to have our efforts recognized by the editors of Commercial Integrator and the panel of judges.”
