Barco Highlights Unified Digital Workplace Solutions With X2O

With the Power of the X2O platform, X2O.Join Gives Employees a Dynamic Communications Dashboard Right on the Desktop

MONTREAL — Feb. 29, 2016 — X2O Media, a Barco company, will demonstrate its new X2O.Join connected desktop app at Enterprise Connect, March 7-10, 2016 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. In addition, the company will show how the X2O visual communications platform empowers employees in the new digital workplace.

X2O.Join extends the power of the X2O platform by allowing users to browse and view any channel on the X2O network, where channels featuring data-driven graphics, video, social media content, and more can be displayed as floating windows on the desktop or used as screensavers. In addition, widgets containing bite-sized amounts of real-time information can be pinned to the desktop for continuous updates. Channels can also be sent as targeted pop-up notifications and shared with colleagues. Finally, in the event of an emergency, critical alerts, security, or safety announcements can be displayed quickly and easily across the network as well.

Designed to deliver real-time visual communications to the right audience, at the right time, on the right device, the X2O platform transforms enterprises into digital workplaces by providing employees tools to create, distribute, and view dynamic visual channels. The X2O platform easily manages and delivers media-rich content in four solution areas:

  • The Connected Desktop enables users to view and interact with channels and content widgets directly from their desktops or laptops via the X2O.Join app. Specific use cases include company news channels, business information dashboards, interactive polls, and live alerts.
  • The Connected Workspace supports multiple users, where teams collaborate in a shared virtual workspace, either in-person in a huddle room or remotely via interactive touchscreens and mobile devices, desktops, and laptops — enabling information sharing, collaboration, polling participation, and more.
  • The Connected Workplace promotes communications in real-time through connected screens and devices found throughout a facility such as digital signage, interactive touchscreens, video walls, IP phones, or wearable devices.
  • The Connected Workforce enables organizations to share real-time content with a global community of connected users and remote workers through mobile devices, cross-campus digital signage networks, and online communication tools. This means companies can maintain up-to-date communications across entire workforces, regardless of location.

X2O Media’s enterprise communications solutions will be on display in booth 207 at Enterprise Connect. More information is available at
