X20 adds map app

X20 Media has announced a Microsoft PowerPoint add-in that allows users of Xpresenter to build interactive maps.

The add-in is designed to simplify the content creation process, allowing users to build their own wayfinder maps for areas such as corporate facilities, campuses, airports and public venues.

Floor plans can be imported to create digital, interactive wayfinder maps — with start and end points and animated directional arrows that indicate the path — directly inside PowerPoint and publish them to the X2O network. The maps can include a video or an image for both start and end points, and on-the-go signage viewers can e-mail directions to themselves directly from the interactive screen.
