Visix showcases Campus digital signage solutions at EDUCAUSE Annual Conference

Visix, Inc. will cxhibit in booth 1643 at the 2013 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Anaheim, October 16 and 17. The company will demonstrate the latest version of its AxisTV digital signage software, award-winning interactive wayfinding designs, meeting room signs, and a host of other new products.

"This year at EDUCAUSE, we're showcasing the benefits of our technologies through the various products and services we have to offer," says Trey Hicks, Chief Sales Officer for Visix. "We have over 700 campuses using our software, and EDUCAUSE has proven itself as the best venue for us to build relationships with higher education IT specialists from existing client campuses and to build new relationships."


AxisTV version 8.3 is the latest release of the company's flagship digital signage software application. Recent enhancements to the already robust content management system include animated layout backgrounds, hot spots and full screen kiosks, mobile module, and advanced alert reporting.

Animated backgrounds allow clients to choose either a single video loop or a series of videos to add sophistication to screen designs and draw attention to playlists. Hot spots on interactive screens offer player actions – such as stop or reboot – or allow switching to full-screen kiosk applications like room booking, queuing management, interactive wayfinding, and point-of-sale systems.

The Mobile Module option allows clients to publish content to smartphones and tablets by publishing to an HTML5 webpage. The software's Alert Notification feature allows users to supplant scheduled content on the entire system or on selected media players. Reporting provides visibility into historical alert incidents, as well as ongoing alert incidents.


Visix will also show their new RoomBoard - a touchscreen wayfinding solution that shows room availability, allows scheduling at the screen and integrates with the company's MeetingMinder meeting room signs.

The RoomBoard™ is a custom-built interactive design with the client's logo, colors and map. Room availability is instantly recognizable with available rooms in green and busy rooms in red. Room availability is fed by a scheduling application, and a hot spot can be incorporated to launch either Microsoft Exchange or EMS, allowing viewers to schedule rooms right at the RoomBoard™. Point-to-point directions and event schedules can be included, or content blocks can play back standard playlists.


Visix booth 1643 will showcase a variety of award-winning custom interactive wayfinding designs for campuses from the company's Creative Services team. Designs will highlight various wayfinding techniques, interactive directories, ADA controls and more. The booth will also feature show Twitter, Facebook and YouTube social media boards and sophisticated catering menu designs.

Visix will give away a Microsoft Surface Tablet each day of the event to booth attendees who register with a badge swipe. EDUCAUSE is being held at the Anaheim Convention Center, October 16-17, 2013.
