VertigoXmedia and Lighthouse Team for Digital SignageLED Signage Technology packaged with XpresenterT Graphics Software (June 07, 2005)
VertigoXmedia, a leading provider of graphics software and hardware, and Lighthouse Technologies, a leading manufacturer in full-color LED screens, have joined forces to provide high-visibility digital signage systems for creating and distributing PowerPoint®-based content in a variety of applications. The joint solution, which integrates Vertigo's XpresenterT software and Lighthouse's PopVision product line, will be on display at InfoComm 2005 booth 7701 inside the Digital Signage
"With Xpresenter, VertigoXmedia offers users of our digital signs a simple, intuitive program that allows them to quickly convert and animate PowerPoint material into powerful, effective digital signage content," said Tony Turiello, Lighthouse's vice president of sales, marketing, and operations in North America. "Because it's simple to use, this software empowers end users to be their own content management providers and minimize their costs in creating and distributing content for PopVision and other Lighthouse LED screens. They can achieve broadcast-quality results with no professional training."
"Lighthouse is at the top of the full-color LED screen market, providing innovative solutions that have brightened many well-known urban landmarks. This partnership is an opportunity to build on each other's strengths in bringing a complete digital signage solution to a wider variety of applications," said David Wilkins, president and CEO of VertigoXmedia. "The declining prices of LED systems have made them more affordable to smaller applications such as gas stations, convenience stores, corporate lobbies, and faith-based facilities. Xpresenter is the perfect match for these customers because it works in PowerPoint, a low-cost program with a brief learning curve."
Xpresenter is an affordable, stand-alone system that provides an easy way to create digital signage applications directly inside PowerPoint. It runs inside the familiar PowerPoint interface, enabling users to develop high-end presentations that feature CG graphics, animations, and broadcast-quality video. By leveraging all the features of PowerPoint and other Microsoft Office® applications, Xpresenter dramatically reduces the time and effort required to develop professional presentations and broadcast graphics.
The Lighthouse family of indoor, outdoor, and high-resolution video screens is becoming increasingly popular for fixed installations, digital signage, and rental and staging applications. Lighthouse's new PopVision is the industry's first portable, self-contained high-brightness LED video screen.
The company has seen its products used in a number of high-visibility LED screen installations, including Clear Channel's New York City subway-portal digital signage network, various locations in London's Piccadilly Circus, San Diego Padres' PETCO Park, on the set of the Queen's "We Will Rock You" show in Las Vegas, and hundreds of concerts and large-scale events.
