NEC to DEMO VertigoXmedia's Xpresenter at NAB2005

Xpresenter is a stand-alone system that provides an easy way to create digital signage applications (April 18, 2005)

VertigoXmedia, a leading provider of broadcast graphics software and hardware, today announced that NEC Display Solutions of America will demonstrate Vertigo's Xpresenter in the NEC booth, SU9350, at NAB2005.

Xpresenter is an affordable, stand-alone system that provides an easy way to create digital signage applications directly inside Microsoft® PowerPoint®. It runs inside the familiar PowerPoint interface, enabling users to quickly and easily develop high-end presentations that feature CG graphics, animations, and broadcast-quality video. By leveraging all the features of PowerPoint in addition to Vertigo's graphics automation toolsets, Xpresenter dramatically reduces the time and effort required to develop broadcast-quality.

In addition to demonstrating the Xpresenter technology in its own booth, NEC also provided eight plasma screens for a digital signage display in the VertigoXmedia booth. Quad Information Display (QID) graphics cards from Matrox Graphics, which synchronize and control the Xpresenter graphics across the multiple displays, will be integrated into the system, allowing for control of all eight screens through a single Xplay interface. The combined technologies deliver accelerated analog, digital, or TV output for digital menus, lottery machines, department stores, arrival/departure boards, and other public information display markets that demand high-performance, multidisplay support.

"Xpresenter is the easiest way to create high-quality broadcast productions for digital signage applications because it uses the PowerPoint interface," said David Wilkins, president and CEO of VertigoXmedia. "We're thrilled that NEC, a leading manufacturer of public displays, will be demonstrating Xpresenter along with its excellent plasma screens."
