The new software can deploy 10 rooms in the time it used to take to do one.

AMX Ditches Programming with Rapid Project Maker

AMX is trying to shave some time (and effort) off the usual automation install. The company just announced Rapid Project Maker (RPM), a cloud-based application that makes the installation process a lot easier for installers.

First of all, the app uses a step-by-step wizard-based approach. Also, it’s designed to help throughout the entire project, from start to finish. Absolutely no programming is required, meaning that installers can configure a great room experience, complete with touchpanel user interface pages and system installation instructions.

For example, AMX says that an integrated conference room can be configured with an AMX Controller, a videoconferencing system, DVD player, display and a laptop—all in less than an hour.

Besides simplifying single-room deployments, RPM also automatically adjusts to the technology and functionality selected each time a project is configured. Also, because it’s cloud-based, installers can access the project from almost anywhere.

“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 Robert Noble, AMX’s CTO. “It also functions as a time saving tool for seasoned designers who need to rapidly design and deploy solutions.”
