Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

X2O Media, Montreal provider of software, network management, and content services for professional digital signage applications, has signed a distribution agreement with Graphics Distribution Inc. whereby GDI will provide distribution and sales support functions for X2O’s Xpresenter Xe Series of stand-alone digital signage systems in the U.S..

Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based GDI is a privately held distribution firm specializing in providing fast and efficient logistics support with quality sales and customer service. The company currently offers a world-class product line of graphics cards, video capture cards, streaming media encoders, video editing keyboards, digital signage equipment, and interactive whiteboards to the A/V, personal computer, education, and IT markets.

“We take pride in meeting the diverse needs of our customers, and with the increase in demand for advanced digital signage solutions, the Xpresenter Xe Series is a perfect addition to fill that gap in our product offering,” says Scott Whitcomb, GDI director of sales. “We’re committed to bringing the Xpresenter Xe line to market and increasing the visibility of the brand to ultimately boost sales.”

The Xpresenter Xe Series was designed to lower the total cost of ownership by enabling users to choose the application they need now and upgrade as future needs arise. The series offers three systems including the Digital Poster Edition for still images, Video Poster Edition for stills and video, and Dynamic DS Edition for stills, video, and data-driven graphics. X2O recently released the Desktop add-in, which enables the Xpresenter Xe Series to extend the reach of communications beyond digital signs by allowing users to receive information such as real-time messages, video, and emergency alerts via a user-friendly player right on their desktop computer.

David Wilkins, X2O Media’s president and CEO, says, “Through this partnership, we will be able to further penetrate key markets in the U.S., while offering GDI’s customers three high-quality systems to meet their digital signage needs.”
