How It Works

Our digital signage apps give you easy, innovative tools to create, customize and deliver a constant flow of beautiful, engaging content.

Our dynamic apps and widgets make creating compelling content fast and easy, and our scheduling and playback tools take the burden off signage managers. Real-time automated feeds and robust data-mapping tools ensure you have a steady flow of fresh and relevant content to keep audiences engaged.

Design and schedule in just seconds using three easy, powerful digital signage apps:

  • AxisTV Design, the desktop design app
  • AxisTV Manage, the content management system (CMS)
  • AxisTV Engage, the playback engine
Visix digital signage is secure, scalable and network-friendly for IT managers
