Technology

AxisTV has three main components: the AxisTV digital signage software, a content manager and one or more medial players. Hardware can be provided by Visix or you can configure our software on your own components.

Authorized users access the content manager and software tools via an easy-to-use web interface to create, manage and schedule time-sensitive content. Messages are grouped into named playlists for easy management. These playlists are published to selected players, which feed displays at scheduled times and intervals.

AxisTV is deliverable as a software application or an integrated system. The AxisTV application, supporting content manager and players are configured onto your local and or wide area network, with its player output (VGA, DVi, component S-Video, or composite video) connected to virtually any number of display devices: flat-panel LCDs and plasma displays, TVs, rooms signs and more.

A major advantage of all of our web-based applications is that anyone with a valid username and password can create captivating visual communications from their desktop, or any other device with access to a browser via LAN, WAN or web.

 

System Diagram

Visix solutions are designed to integrate into your local or wide area network. Data management and transfer is typically handled through 10/100 Ethernet infrastructure. The output of the channel player(s) can be configured to include VGA, DVi, composite, or component S-Video and accompanying audio. These signals are typically distributed to any number of endpoints using traditional audiovisual signal distribution products. These products may include VGA distribution amplifiers and category-5 transmitters/receivers.

When a client chooses to deliver visual messages to a network of televisions, the audio and video signals are typically distributed via an existing RF distribution system using modulators and dedicated channels. In this case, visual communications would appear on a particular channel on TVs.

In the sample diagram below, the signal outputs of the represented players are being distributed to a network of televisions, room signs, LCD/plasma displays and Visix publisher endpoints over the network.

Note that the specific components necessary to deliver these signals are not represented in the diagram, and the Visix package does not include a video distribution system or any of the components needed.

AxisTV can be seamlessly integrated with other Visix technologies to deliver your digital signage content beyond displays to interactive room signs, desktops and personal devices for maximum message saturation.
