DENVER, Colorado - September 4, 2008 - AMX®, a worldwide leader in advanced control system technology, announces its expanding its award winning line of the 5.2" Modero ViewPoint® Widescreen Touch Panels to include the 5.2" MVP -5100 ViewPoint IR Touch Panel and MVP -5150 WiFi® ViewPoint Touch Panel, bringing a new level of simplicity and cost effectiveness to the AV control market. The MVP -5100 is built on the same lightening fast processor as the MVP -5200i, offers the same eye -popping crisp high resolution graphics and comes in Gloss Black.

Designed as a lower cost alternative to the 5.2" Modero ViewPoint® Widescreen Touch Panel MVP -5200i, the MVP -5100 and MVP -5150 are perfect for individuals who want the sleek sexy design of the MVP -5200i, but do not need all of its rich features. Both Touch Panels are built on the award winning MVP -5200i platform providing fast, power -efficient processing - up to three hours of continuous use and two and a half days of standby use - and excellent resolution (800x480 WVGA) in a 5.2" widescreen display. The sleek design is extremely compact and light (weighs only one pound) and it fits into the MVP -5200i table and wall charging system.

"With the expansion of our incredibly successful MVP line, AMX is able to offer the appropriate features at the appropriate price to meet every application that our customers are looking for," says Rashid Skaf, president and CEO of AMX. "Whether the user needs to control and automate a single room or multiple subsystems throughout a home or building, the sleek design fits into any residential décor or architectural style."

The MVP -5100 offers one -way IR communication and is ideal for single room control such as a home theater, home office or hotel room. Its built -in IR only communication can be very important in mission critical applications where 802.11b/g may not be permitted. The MVP -5150 extends the end users control to an entire home or office via its WiFi (802.11 b/g) capabilities. The MVP -5150 works seamlessly with AMX's popular Resource Management Suite®, the most robust software platform available for managing, monitoring and tracking assets, as well as scheduling meeting/class rooms..
