The release includes five new widgets, 64-bit OS support, enhanced workflows, improved interactive functionality, personal UI customization options, heightened sort and filter intelligence, expanded organizational tools and security policies, as well as the ability to customize every visual property for the company’s Touch room sign.
“This is a highly anticipated release filled with features requested by a rapidly growing user base,” said Sean Matthews, president and CEO of Visix. “This is the largest update we’ve released since launching the platform in 2017, and it expands and enhances every aspect of our platform – design, management and playback. Whether you’re an administrator or content creator, this release has new tools that will help you streamline workflows and produce better content for your audience.”

This prevents players from having to handle multiple touch requests at the same time by prioritizing interactions on a first-touched, first-launched basis.
