Budget-Friendly Solution Allows Control of Teleconferencing, Audio, Video and Environmental Controls from Cisco Phones in Meeting Rooms with AMX Control
RICHARDSON, Texas – August 3, 2011 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced that its new NXV-CPI Control Phone Interface devices are available for immediate shipment. The NXV-CPI enables AMX control capabilities through two popular Cisco IP Phones transforming them into user interfaces for controlling an AMX environment.
The NXV-CPI, when paired with a NetLinx® Controller, allows Cisco Phone users to gain a basic level of control with minimal investment in new infrastructure. Using the phones' built-in touch screen, hard buttons, soft keys or numeric keypad, users can access and control systems in the room such as teleconferencing, audiovisual and environmental control.
"We're pleased to work side by side with Cisco equipment in organizations where we share customers, enabling a single, convenient interface for controlling an AMX environment," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "As more and more businesses seek to optimize resource efficiencies and unify control of the multiple technologies in their conference rooms the NXV-CPI allows many Cisco phone users to achieve this simply and cost effectively."
Additionally, in today's business climate, where many companies are searching for ways to optimize resources and energy management, facility managers can further enhance an NXV-CPI deployment with Resource Management Suite™ from AMX to gain a smart, whole building solution.
The NXV-CPI is specified for use with Cisco CP-7965G and CP-7975G phones.
