ATLANTA, GA – June 9, 2010 – Visix, Inc. has unveiled the latest update of its premier digital signage software application, AxisTV version 7.0.22. The release includes a variety of new features, enhancements and bug fixes for a significantly improved user experience. Notable items of the update are CAP Compliant Mass Alert Notification, QuickTime Support and Theme Backgrounds.
MASS ALERT NOTIFICATION
The ability to quickly communicate to groups of individuals in the case of an emergency has become critical for higher education and businesses throughout the world. AxisTV now has the ability to respond to mass alert notification conditions by halting all normal operations and focusing all system resources exclusively on the processing and distribution of mass alert content to all channel players that are part of the installation.
AxisTV's mass alert notification also supports the Common Alert Protocol 1.1 (CAP) standard, as described by OASIS. AxisTV can handle both synchronous and asynchronous CAP alerts from third parties. This release of the Mass Alert Notification feature provides integration with e2Campus through the CAP listener.
The Mass Alert Notification will continue until an intentional action is taken to stop it. This interaction can be prompted by an authorized user through a specially designed screen, a cancellation or expiration date by a third party through CAP, or a cancellation by a third party through a previously defined web service.
SUPPORT FOR QUICKTIME FILES
AxisTV now supports QuickTime file and streaming playback. By default, QuickTime will automatically check for QuickTime updates, but it is possible to turn off this action.
THEMED BACKGROUNDS AND LAYOUTS
New color-themed backgrounds and layouts for AxisTV have been added to enhance the user experience and provide a more coordinated presentation of content. During Initialize Device or Upgrade Device, these themes will be inserted into the background library. Three themes are included in this release: Elegant Blue, Elegant Black and Elegant Ecru. Each theme set includes four layout wallpapers with 47 matching backgrounds.
To better organize the new theme backgrounds and all other files in the background library, the ability to create folders has been added to Manage | Background Library. This allows AxisTV users to arrange backgrounds into user-defined folders. Users can also group backgrounds by type of background.
PLAYLISTS DISPLAY AND UNSCHEDULE
AxisTV now allows an authorized user to unschedule bulletins from one or all playlists under Manage | My Content and crawls from one or all crawllists from Manage | My Tickers.
The AxisTV v.7.0.22 update is available for download from the company’s web site and is free of charge to current Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) clients. New content manager and media player orders received by Visix after June 1, 2010 will ship imaged with the most recent release to minimize deployment configuration requirements and field upgrades.
