AMX Does Unthinkable: Improves Upon World's Most Innovative Touch Panel

Myriad of Industry Accolades Couldn't Satisfy, AMX Makes Modero X Series Faster, Easier to Use and Visually Superior

Orlando, Florida June 12, 2013


While many consider the AMX® Modero X® Series family of touch panels to be leaps and bounds above anything else on the market, AMX knew there was room for even more improvement. In their quest to take touch panel technology to new heights in usability, they stunned the floor at InfoComm 2013 when they announced that a significantly enhanced Modero X was coming that answers the question: "How could they make something that good even better?"

When designing the new Modero X, one thing was clear - the changes would all be improvements to the inside - the revolutionary, award-winning form factor wouldn't be altered in any way. But the changes to the inside - would be significant. A new G5 Graphics Engine replaces the previous G4, providing faster and smoother animations and transitions, putting simply beautiful, beautifully simple into a whole new context. While AMX was dropping a new graphics engine under the hood, they also decided to quadruple the processing horsepower with a new Quad Core Processor - the fastest in the industry. It launches and runs today's applications quicker than ever and has enough processing power on tap to run more demanding applications to come in the future.

To simplify meeting room technology even further, built-in web browsing and document viewing was added, eliminating the need for and cost of a stand-alone meeting room PC. AMX also eased life for the integrator by adding the ability to deploy and update touch panel files from a network URL to greatly simplify touch panel file management behind the scenes. And the new Modero X includes two new mounting options including a Flush Wall Mount for a sleeker, in-wall look and a secure Lectern/Table mount, which added theft deterrence. The best just got way better. Are you ready to experience the all new Modero X Series?
