By AMX

Orlando, Fla — AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the new Modero® X Series Touch Panels. The family of frameless, panoramic and widescreen touch panels featuring edge-2-edge glass, low-profile design, and more usable space for control, applications, video and a richly engaging user experience will begin releasing later this year. AMX is debuting the Modero X Series Touch Panels at booth #2525 at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Fla.

The Modero X Series will completely change your perspective on touch panels; literally. The panoramic models will be released first and available in both a 20.3”, measuring an impressive 18.7” long by 7.75” tall with over 145 square inches of usable control surface and a 19.4”, measuring an equally impressive 18.7” wide by 5.15” tall using over 96 square inches of usable control surface.

Both 20.3” and 19.4” models will be available in tabletop as well as portrait and landscape wall models. The tabletop models are specifically designed to be very low profile to minimize the possibility of the touch panel obstructing the user’s view. The wall models can be effectively used in podiums or outside conference rooms to provide a room schedule, digital signage and even a way of communicating with building personnel. In portrait mode, the Modero X Series display offers a longer control surface creating a cutting-edge look with limitless interactive, audiovisual options for corporate settings. Another plus is that when in portrait mode, the touch screen meets a wide array of height installation requirements.

To support an even wider range of applications, three additional Modero X Series sizes will be available in 2012. 5”, 7” and 10” models will feature an impressive 16x9 aspect ratio and include the same advanced technologies as the panoramic models.

Designed for the unique needs of enterprise customers, the Modero X Series is hardware-ready to employ the newest technologies, specifically applicable for supporting technically savvy boardrooms, meeting spaces and end users. Integrated high definition camera for video chat and conferencing, Bluetooth and USB external phone connections, high definition video streaming and support for Near Field Communications technologies are just a few of the many advanced technologies that make the Modero X Series truly stand out against the competition.

“While the Modero X Series is a radical departure from conventional touch panels, we didn’t stop there - we are thinking about what’s next,” said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. “Personalizing the user experience is always paramount at AMX and including technologies like NFC. Although NFC technology is just beginning to appear on the market, we are including it as an example of ways we are anticipating future integration with personal mobile devices.”

AMX will be demonstrating the new “Pantastic” user-interface concept illustrating the advantage of the extra control area provided by the Modero X Series touch panels at InfoComm 2011. The unique benefits of the Modero X Series will be clearly evident.
