One of the most relevant features of XLknowledge® technology is the advanced interaction between high resolution digital images and knowledge elements related to them, through the definition of “sensitive areas” inside the single images (hot spot).

XLknowledge ® is one of the enabling technologies of Uffizi Touch®, as well as of many interactive applications and websites made by Centrica.
