About X2O Platform
Barco’s X2O platform is a powerful solution to improve communication channels. Including intuitive tools for content generation and distribution, the HTML5-based platform offers a way to bring relevant information to the different stakeholders (internal and external) using standard web technologies. X2O presents data in a graphical form that is easy to interpret and also offers interactivity for immediate action or collaboration. In this way, you can not only inform people, but also actively involve them.
The X2O platform was designed with the user in mind. The key idea is that information should be easy to manage, distribute, and interpret. Because it combines the distribution and management of information with the creation of attractive graphical elements, and publishing in standard formats such as HTML5, X2O allows its users to react in the fastest possible way. And above all, the technical complexities are hidden, so users can focus on what is really important to them: the information!
With X2O, users can quickly create and publish their own channels. Much like television channels, these channels are built with graphical tools and objects that present complex data in a clear and clutter-free manner, offering users the information they really need at the right time. X2O channels can contain a multitude of media types, including video, graphics, charts, images, social media content, PowerPoint slides … or a combination of these. The content can directly link to corporate databases (like SAP, Oracle and SharePoint) or social media sites (Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, …), automatically providing the most recent information.
Channels are built from a professionally designed library of ‘smart objects’, a way to present a certain piece of information in a standard manner. X2O objects contain pre-coded production logic that automatically updates graphic elements, greatly simplifying the channel creation process. Using X2O’s library, users can drag-and-drop pre-built objects to create channels in a fast and easy way. Objects can also be customized to address specific needs.
