AMX Making Enterprise-Scale Digital Signage Easier, Begins Shipping Inspired Composer 5.4

Newest Inspired Composer Software Adds Content Tracking and Reporting Feature to Intuitive Content Creation Templates

RICHARDSON, Texas March 07, 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 enterprise-scale digital-signage software Inspired Composer 5.4. The newest Inspired Composer achieves and simplifies two key tasks for digital signage users: monitoring and managing the digital signage network and creating and managing content.

The content tracking and reporting feature can retrieve message play data from one or more players allowing users to audit message playback. The data, which is returned in XML or CSV formats, can be filtered by player, message, and date. Playback log reports include summary data as well as information about each time a message was played.

"Increasingly our Inspired Composer customers have been requesting content tracking and reporting to evaluate sales and marketing efforts," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "Inspired Composer 5.4 gives users the in-depth data, as well as top-level briefs, for more granular analytics and actionable data. For signage deployments, this data is critical for ascertaining effectiveness."

Already recognized for the ease in which it allows the uninitiated digital signage user to create content, the new Inspired Composer 5.4 makes content creation further intuitive. A great example of this in Composer 5.4 is the capability to link a defined space within a design template to a URL that holds an image that can easily be updated remotely.

Inspired Composer allows staffers across an organization to become contributors, intuitively guiding them through a simple workflow management and approval process. In Composer 5.4, all changes are highlighted so that a content manager can review and approve the content before it is published to players.

Inspired Composer 5.4, available in a Desktop and Server version, was developed for use with the Inspired XPert digital signage player (IS-XPT-2000) from AMX. Teaming Inspired Composer 5.4 with the 1080p Inspired XPert player delivers engaging, HD multimedia content - across a building, a campus or around the world.
