 Education professionals get first-hand look at advanced sustainability, connectivity and distance learning solutions

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – September 27, 2012 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced it will take part in the 2012 Kuwait Edutech Conference, October 9-10 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Kuwait. In the AMX booth attendees will get an interactive demonstration of the newest technologies for the 'perfect classroom' and intelligent campus.
AMX solutions unify best-in-class AV and IT technology to create the fundamentals for sustainable, intelligent buildings and technologically advanced learning environments. As academic facilities seek to meet these critical objectives AMX control and automation solutions meet these demands while providing investment security and scalability to keep pace with advances yet to be introduced.
"The thing that especially sets AMX apart from other educational systems is that our solutions are designed for simplicity of use - allowing educators to focus on teaching kids and running schools, not on the technology itself," said Wadih Skaf, Managing Director, AMX Middle East. "Another critical factor, our newest innovations are all-in-one solutions that reduce the number of components needed to build a meeting room rack. So instead of the ten individual components required for a standard rack configuration, which consumes more energy, AMX offers compact units that handle it all, cutting energy consumption by 80 percent."
The key building block of the perfect classroom is the new Enova® DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher. Enova DVX Switchers are all-in-one solutions for classrooms where a dedicated control solution is needed – and which can be networked to all others and centrally controlled. The DVX combines AV switching, control, audio processing, amplification and category cable distribution from a 3 RU chassis and can be supported and serviced remotely over an IT infrastructure.
Complementing the classroom solution is the AMX intelligent-campus solution, enabling administrators in the main office to easily coordinate audio-visual and multi-media content for individual classrooms or throughout the facility. At its core are Enova® DGX Digital Media Switchers. The DGX provides centralized digital media management and distribution of analog and digital audio and video, including HDMI/HDCP, from up to 16 or 32 sources to 16 or 32 locations.
Also included in the AMX innovations on display are the panoramic and widescreen Modero X Series® Touch Panels. The multi-award winning Modero X introduces possibly the most intuitive user interface yet developed, allowing teachers to focus on the lesson at hand and not the technology itself.
