PSAV® Presentation Services, a leading supplier of audiovisual and event technologies to the hospitality industry, announces that the company has formed a strategic alliance with Montreal-based X20 Media, a full-service provider of technology and services for digital signage applications.

Under the agreement, X2O Media will provide content design, management, distribution, monitoring, integration and support services for PSAV customers’ digital signage deployments, offering a true end-to-end digital signage solution for hotels, associations, producers and meeting planners worldwide.

“No digital signage offering is complete without amazing content and rock-solid stability. For this reason, PSAV has chosen to enter into a partnership agreement with X20 Media,” said Denis Lesak, PSAV corporate director, digital signage services. “Our corporate hotel partners, are looking to PSAV to deliver a higher-quality graphics experience than is currently begin offered on the market today. Together with X20’s industry-leading capabilities – including an award-winning creative services team and eye-popping broadcast rendering engine – we have been able to develop a host of digital signage experiences that both excite and inform the hotel guest for permanent installed and temporary event digital signage.”

An example of a joint-technology deployment between PSAV and X20 Media can be found at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare hotel in Rosemont, Ill. As the property’s on-site event-technology partner for 25 years, PSAV designed a functional system that enables Hyatt Regency O’Hare guests to interact with any of 13 strategically located 46-inch digital touch screen displays. X2O’s Xpresenter™ platform powers the touch screen technology, enabling each unit to integrate into the hotel’s content management system to ensure the most current meeting location information is presented. The display allows guests to access information about scheduled events, facilities, concierge services, amenities and airline departures. Among the highlights of this application is a 3D map that illustrates how to navigate from one area to another, designed by X2O’s creative services team.

“We are delighted to extend our ongoing relationship with PSAV,” said David Wilkins, X20 Media president and CEO. “Both companies have a laser focus on customer service with an emphasis on creating sophisticated, interactive content as a pivotal part of our digital signage technologies offering. Through this strategic partnership, customers can leverage the combined expertise of X2O and PSAV to deploy a rich, interactive content solution that takes digital signage networking well beyond simple text-based displays.”
