AMX Launches Rapid Project Maker, Configures Systems without Programming

Easy-to-Use Software Deploys 10 Rooms in the Time It Previously Took To Deploy One

RICHARDSON, Texas - April 16, 2012 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the launch of Rapid Project Maker (RPM). RPM is a cloud-based application that lets installers configure an AMX system online using a step-by-step wizard-based approach. RPM simplifies more than just the configuration, it is a comprehensive tool designed to help throughout the entire project - from start to finish. With no programming required, installers can configure the perfect conference room experience that includes touch panel user interface pages and system installation instructions. An integrated conference room consisting of an AMX Controller, a videoconferencing system, DVD player, display and a laptop can be configured in less than an hour.


RPM's step-by-step system configuration guide was developed leveraging the AMX Professional Services Group's 30-plus years of programming and user interface expertise. RPM not only simplifies single room deployments but also automatically adjusts to the technology/functionality selected each time a project is configured. Client branding was also taken into consideration with dedicated space available for the client's logo in the finished UI. Overall, RPM is a well-designed resource that is easy to deploy and simple to use.

"RPM is a feature rich tool that enables system programmers with little or no AMX programming experience to implement control solutions for meeting rooms, teaching spaces and lecture/presentation venues," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "It also functions as a time saving tool for seasoned designers who need to rapidly design and deploy solutions."

Numerous features make RPM extremely convenient. Because it is cloud-based, installers can access their projects remotely. Saving and managing a project's files online at AMX.com reduces on-site service calls and facilitates sharing of resources within an organization. RPM even generates installation and purchasing documentation in addition to complete controller code and touch panel files to make the configuration process more convenient.

RPM is currently being offered to AMX dealers who have expressly requested access to the solution. Anyone interested in learning more can contact their AMX representative or visit: http://www.amx.com/products/NSS-RPM.asp.
