With the new wayfinder add-in, users of X2O's Xpresenter digital signage platform can import floor plans and create digital, interactive wayfinding maps, with start and end points and animated directional arrows that indicate the path, directly inside PowerPoint and publish them to the X2O network. The maps can include a video or an image for both start and end points. Signage uses can even e-mail directions to themselves directly from the interactive screen.

"Our wayfinder maps have been an extremely popular feature in a number of X2O networks, from hotels and conference centers to casinos and airports, and we are glad to now offer this cost-saving tool to our customers on a mass scale," said David Wilkins, X2O Media's president and CEO, in a statement. "Xpresenter users are already creating a wide variety of graphics and other content for their networks with our PowerPoint-based Xpresenter Template Maker authoring module, and now they can create these wayfinder maps as well, saving content managers considerable time and reducing the need to learn new tools and applications."

X2O Media's Xpresenter is an end-to-end platform for creating, managing, and distributing broadcast-quality digital signage content on networks of all sizes. Xpresenter's authoring module allows PowerPoint users to produce graphics that incorporate animations, smart objects, video clips, and real-time data sources without leaving the PowerPoint interface.
