AMX Begins Shipping Modero X Panoramic Touch Panels Taking User Experience to Next Level

Next-Gen Technology and Next-Gen Looks; Panoramic, Capacitive Multi-Touch Control Surface A Multi-Tasking Wonder

RICHARDSON, Texas - February 2, 2012 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the immediate availability of the Modero® X Series Touch Panels. The family of frameless, panoramic and widescreen touch panels with a low-profile design offer more usable real estate for control, applications and video. The user experience and look of these edge-2-edge glass touch panels is nothing short of stunning.

The panoramic, capacitive multi-touch screen of the Modero X completely redefines the touch panel user experience. And, with its low-profile design, whether on a conference room table or a coffee table, the Modero X never obstructs the view of the user or distracts communications with other people in the room. Its innovative design allows users access to several applications with minimal navigation and the ability to manage multiple video windows simultaneously, such as presenting, controlling and previewing. And because of its incredibly intuitive user-interface, anyone that approaches a Modero X, regardless of skill or technical familiarity can "Start Presentation" or "Watch Blu-ray" with no instruction, just a touch.

"While the Modero X Series is a radical departure from last-generation touch panels, we didn't stop there - we tried to anticipate the future of device personalization," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "We expect Near Field Communications to be a big player in creating a truly personalized home or office and Modero X owners will be ready to take advantage of this technology as it is integrated into more devices."

There are many advanced technologies that make the Modero X Series truly stand out against other touch panels in the marketplace: an integrated high definition camera in tabletop models for video chat and conferencing, Bluetooth and USB external phone connections, high definition video streaming and support for NFC are a just a few.

With the initial shipment, AMX is releasing the 20.3" and 19.4" panoramic models, in tabletop and wall-mounted options. The 20.3" model measures an impressive 18.7" wide and 7.75" tall for over 145 square inches of usable control surface. The 19.4" model measures an equally impressive 18.7" wide and 5.15" tall creating over 96 square inches of usable control surface.

The three additional Modero X Series models, in 4.3", 7" and 10" widescreen, will begin shipping in Q2, 2012.
