VertigoXmedia, a leading provider of content automation and graphics solutions for AV and broadcast applications, today announced that at InfoComm 2004 it will debut Xpresenter, an affordable and easy-to-use system for producing broadcast-quality graphics, animation, and video from within Microsoft PowerPoint.
"Xpresenter allows PowerPoint users to leverage technology that incorporates VertigoXmedia's years of success in the broadcast market to develop engaging high-end presentations and broadcast-quality graphics," said VertigoXmedia CEO David Wilkins. "Xpresenter significantly reduces the time and effort involved in producing rich broadcast productions for live presentations, digital signage, hospitality channels, and other high-profile applications."
Xpresenter runs directly inside PowerPoint's familiar interface to produce high-quality computer graphics and animations, incorporate existing clip art galleries into presentations, and link slide elements to real-time data sources for stunning visual displays. Additional features include the ability to overlay slide elements on video; real-time, variable-speed crawling tickers incorporating text and images; broadcast-quality transitions and DVE effects; and multiple animated logos and clocks. Presentation elements can be controlled manually or scheduled to play out at specific times.
Xpresenter is available as a software-only package as well as a turnkey system including broadcast-quality hardware and software. Built on Microsoft DirectX and Windows Media 9 technology, Xpresenter can output directly to a broadcast video monitor, a plasma screen, or a Windows Media 9 video stream.
