AMX Breaks Barriers Bringing More Meeting Technology to Ever Smaller Spaces
Posted on Wednesday, June 18, 2014
New Digital Switcher Line Enables Simplified Selection of Up to Eight Guest Laptops or AV Sources

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – June 18, 2014 – Committed to providing advanced meeting room technology to more users in more spaces, at InfoComm 2014, AMX®, a HARMAN® Professional brand, debuted its new family of Solecis digital AV switchers. Solecis Switchers bring meeting room technology to huddle spaces and smaller meeting rooms that are used more often by more people. The Solecis Series is available in a variety of models to support varying configuration needs and AV formats and each Solecis Switcher is scalable to grow with the needs of the installation.

Typical huddle spaces often lack the guest connections and control options needed to support most meetings. Solecis increases meeting productivity by offering a simple way for all participants to share their laptop with the room. By integrating an AV switcher, a distance transport transmitter and control inputs that enable switching without the need for an external controller, Solecis addresses the needs of many meeting scenarios. They're also affordable to manage, utilizing simple interface options including an AMX HydraPort® toggle button or a Keypad. And they are easily mounted under conference room tables or in lecterns.

Solecis Digital Switchers were also designed to easily integrate into larger, more complex systems. All models include dual outputs; both an HDMI output for a local display, and an AMX DXLink distance transport output for a remote display. When integrated with an Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher or Enova DGX Digital Media Switcher, participants can collaborate using their local HDMI display and also present to a classroom display over the DXLink output.

Solecis is available in three models to support varying room requirements and device formats. The 5x1 Multi-Format Digital Switcher includes both HDMI and VGA inputs and is perfectly suited to accommodate long tables with AV connection points at either end. The 4x1 and 8x1 HDMI models are great choices where digital video formats are paramount. All Solecis Switchers are HDCP compliant and support AMX InstaGatePro™ technology for worry-free switching of copy protected sources. They also all include a multi-port Ethernet switch to easily distribute network connectivity at the table.

The 5x1 Multi-Format Solecis Digital Switchers are expected to ship in the US in December 2014 and globally in March 2015. The 4x1 and 8x1 models will begin shipping in Q1 2015.
