AMX New Modero Raises the Bar For Touch Panel Expectations

Gesture Navigation and Animated Page Transitions Deliver a New Level of User Experience

LAS VEGAS - June 9, 2010 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today showcased the newest edition to the award -winning Modero® Touch Panel line, the 9" widescreen MVP -9000i. The sleekly designed MVP -9000i is stocked with the latest innovations in touch panel technology and sports a next -generation user interface that supports finger -swipe navigation activating animated page transitions such as fades, flips and scrolls. AMX is demonstrating the MVP -9000i in booth C4417 at InfoComm 2010, being held June 9 - 11 in Las Vegas.

Designed to deliver the flexibility demanded in today's commercial and residential applications, the MVP -9000i combines the speed and security of a wired Ethernet connection with the freedom of an 802.11 a/b/g wireless connection. It's engineered to automatically switch between Ethernet connectivity when docked and WiFi when out of dock delivering both tabletop and in -wall control. To ensure exceptional mobile functionality it offers 802.11 a/b/g WiFi with antenna diversity and powerful wireless security features ideal for banking and corporate settings. Support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) eliminates the need to pull a separate power cable for the docking station.

"The MVP -9000i significantly advances touchpanel capabilities that enhance the way users interact with control and automation touch panels," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "With finger -swipe animated page transitions, brilliant 24 -bit color display and other cutting -edge innovations it will be a must have for anyone who experiences it."

Seemingly every feature conceivable for next -gen conference rooms and home AV installations is at a user's fingertip with the MVP -9000i, including VoIP intercom, 800x480 screen resolution, 85 -degree wide -angle viewing in all directions, built -in speaker and microphone, USB stick and Micro -SD slots.

"When AMX set out to engineer the Modero 9000i our goal was to deliver the absolute finest touch panel in performance and experience," said Shaun Robinson, Director of Product Management for AMX. "One of the ways we delivered on this was with the industry's first LED -backlit touch panel which is energy efficient and mercury free, another is the in -plane switching technology that delivers vivid, 85 -degree all angle viewing."

Even the mounting system for the MVP -9000i is revolutionary with a versatile rough -in box that allows the touch panel to be flush, recess mounted in stone, drywall, brick and almost any other surface.

AMX offers a line of comprehensive system design platforms for any level of installation and ease of setup, all of which are supported by the MVP -9000i: AMXmeetingroom, AMX VisualArchitect and AMXhome.
