 Judges Call Inspired XPress "Great Example of New Generation of Digital Signage Solutions;" Laud Subscription-Free Player for Small Footprint and More Horsepower than Other Media Players

RICHARDSON, Texas - January 25, 2011 - AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, announced today its Inspired XPress has been honored as a 2010 DIGI Award recipient.
The subscription-free Inspired XPress, which was introduced in 2010, was named as the Best New Content Management Software/Premise-based solution by the event’s committee of leading digital signage experts. According to Digital Signage magazine, the awarding judges included such industry luminaries as Alan Brawn of Brawn Consulting, InfoComm Academy Faculty Instructor Lyle Bunn and David Keene, Executive Editor, Digital Signage magazine. The DIGI Awards recognize the best new products for the digital signage market as well as the resellers, integrators and service providers who exhibit excellence in the industry.
"The Judges felt that the AMX Inspired XPress offering was a great example of the new generation of digital signage solutions that is both a hardware and a software platform," said David Keene, Chair of the Judges' Committee of the DIGI Awards. "And because the Inspired XPress is SVG-based, its small-footprint media player has more content ‘horsepower’ than most of the tiny Flash-based media players out there."
Inspired XPress is an end-to-end solution ideal for organizations that desire to manage all aspects of their digital signage including content creation. Inspired XPress features a simple, intuitive software interface that allows users to quickly create templates and content, and then publish content to its SPX-1000 players, which are small enough to mount behind any display.
"To be honored by this panel of leading digital signage experts speaks volumes about Inspired XPress as a solution that can truly make a remarkable impact in digital signage deployments," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "By offering innovations that give organizations an easy-to-use, yet advanced - and let's not forget subscription-free - digital signage solution, we are creating new business opportunities for our dealers at a time when the market is escalating and eager for this type of complete solution."
The Inspired XPress Signage solution features an ultra-compact, powerful signage player that utilizes Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) to produce robust digital signage that is easy to deploy and energy efficient. This benefits users with a solution that saves energy costs, installation fees and monthly subscription charges compared to other digital signage providers.
Inspired XPress is widely available in the U.S. through AMX direct dealers, distributors Almo and Synnex, and globally through AMX international dealers.
