Exploit the power of QuizXpress by pairing it with an audience response system that integrates seamlessly. Just plug the buzzer system's receiver into the computer's USB port, as well as the quizmaster's remote control. Each quiz player or team gets a wireless buzzer to buzz in with the answers to each question.
The quiz you create runs using the QuizXpress software on your computer. It can be presented on monitors, video screens (via a projector), or on any size television sets. As QuizXpress is a multimedia experience, a soundcard is recommended to play the various types of sound effects and other audio. The quizmaster operates the quiz with a wireless remote control or by using the keyboard, indicating whether given answers are correct or incorrect and moving through the questions, showing intermediate scores, and showing a graph of the answers supplied.

Creating a Quiz: QuizXpress Studio
Using QuizXpress Studio, you can easily compose great-looking quizzes, without being a computer genius or design guru. QuizXpress is very user-friendly and intuitive but offers lots of possibilities, including:
Unlimited number of questions per quiz
Built-in categories (e.g. sports, film, music) allowing you to indicate which category each question belongs to. This means that the design of the questions/quiz (fonts, background, colors) will be adapted to the design of the category. Of course you can also create your very own categories.
Lots of question types such as multiple choice (2-3-4 answers), open questions, everyone answers, wager and more.
Demographic questions to split the audience in different competing groups
Change question layout by dragging and dropping questions and answers
Use of sound, pictures and videos within questions
Entering questions quickly in a grid layout
Number of points to be gained/lost in case of a correctly or incorrectly answered question
Variety of question properties, such as setting the time-span of the question
Use of banners: static slide to display information
Use of rounds: optionally drop teams
Thumbnail view of all the questions in a thumbnail strip
Various question layouts/question types
Preview and/or start QuizXpress Live! from within QuizXpress Studio
Use of sound effects within questions: with this functionality you can create a music quiz, for example
The properties of the teams competing can be fully configured (name/avatars). You can even set the buzzer sounds of the teams, which can also be your own sounds! The sounds played when a given answer is correct/incorrect can also be configured
Information gathering takes place during a quiz session (for example: answers from teams per question, timing information). This information is saved to an Excel file to enable the use of QuizXpress for educational and training purposes
To save on development time, set up category templates and import questions from Excel.
Export quizzes to PDF booklets to support the quizmaster during the show
