With the New Enova DGX 16 and 32 Digital Media Switchers and the Panoramic Modero X Series Touch Panels, AMX Leads Revolution as AV Control Manufacturer for an IT World
RICHARDSON, Texas – August 15, 2011 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, announced the Enova® DGX 16 and Enova DGX 32 Digital Media Switchers were named Best New Product at InfoComm 2011 by rAVe Magazine. The publication also named the Modero® X Series Touch Panels as the Best New Control System Hardware Product.
"Out of 925 global exhibitors introducing thousands of new audiovisual solutions at this year's InfoComm, it's quite a distinction for two of our innovations to be named as Best of InfoComm by rAVe," said AMX Chief Technology Officer Robert Noble. "With products like the Enova DGX 16 and 32 and Modero X Series, AMX is making a strong statement to our dealers and the audiovisual community that we have the solutions today's marketplace is calling for."
The Enova DGX 16 and 32 Digital Media Switchers are described by rAVe as "examples of the future of AV distribution." This is largely due to the fact that HDMI-HDCP installation has become a time-consuming nightmare for integrators. With InstaGate Pro™ Technology from AMX onboard, installers can now easily integrate HDCP into system designs and enjoy hassle-free plug-and-play operation. No tools, no delays, and no key constraints — it just works.
And the DGX gives integrators a future-proof solution, allowing for connectivity of analog and digital video (VGA, component video, HDMI, DVI, etc.), digital audio, IR control, RS-232 control, Ethernet and power, all across one single twisted pair cable.
Another trend integrators have been calling for is compact units that do the work of multiple systems. The Enova DGX 16 and 32 systems do that with a built-in NetLinx® controller — so it functions as a complete integrated solution that manages and distributes analog and digital audio and video including HDMI/HDCP, control, and Ethernet up to 100 meters over one standard twisted pair cable.
Add in SmartScale™ Technology from AMX in every output, which perfectly scales video, automatically, for each connected display, and you can easily see why the Enova DGX 16 and 32 were the rave at InfoComm 2011.
So while the Enova DGX 16 and 32 are engineered to provide the backbone of AV installations of the future, the Modero X Series Touch Panels create the control interface of the future.
With its panoramic interface and form factor that has no compare on the market, the Modero X is called "the leading differentiator" in the touch panel category by rAVe. The Modero X Series is a family of frameless, panoramic and widescreen touch panels that feature edge-2-edge glass, low-profile design, and more usable space for control, applications, video, and a richly engaging user experience.
The Modero X Series provides gestures, swipes and new animation capabilities, and is hardware-ready to support the newest technologies. Just a few of its many advanced features include integrated high-definition camera for video chat and conferencing, Bluetooth® and USB external phone connections, HD video streaming and support for Near Field Communications technologies.
Shaun Robinson, AMX director of product management said: "As the AV and IT worlds continue to converge, AMX has created the solutions to bridge these domains and put everything in terms that AV integrators, facility managers and IT managers can easily understand and apply."
