Smaller Widescreen Models Pack All the Power of the X
LAS VEGAS – June 14, 2012 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced the immediate availability of the 7 - and 10-inch Modero X® Series Touch Panels. The smaller, widescreen versions belong to the multi-award-winning family of touch panels that were expressly designed to incorporate multi-touch capabilities such as gesturing, swiping and tapping that mobile phone and tablet users have come to love and are so comfortable using.
"95 percent of the success of a control system is the user interface," explained Robert Noble, AMX Chief Technology Officer. "Individuals the world over have become accustomed to the use of command-based gesturing, tapping and scrolling to interface with their technology. The user interface of the Modero X Series takes this human element of interacting with technology to a higher degree of intuitiveness - so the user can actually take advantage of the advanced functionality onboard. These touch panels are unlike anything else out in the market."
The new 7 and 10-inch models not only stand out for their instinctive approach but also functionality. Features include a capacitive, multi-touch screen, high-definition video streaming, Bluetooth VoIP and USB external phone connections. The 10-inch adds a high definition camera for video chat and conferencing (in tabletop and wall landscape models).
And demonstrating future readiness, the Modero X Series also support Near Field Communications (NFC). NFC enables device personalization by allowing two devices in close proximity to exchange data, such as between a smartphone and another NFC-enabled device.
As much as the 7-inch, 10-inch and other Modero X Series models are a radical departure from last-generation touch panels in technology, the same is true for their look. The widescreen, frameless, edge-2-edge glass design is looks and functions unlike any touch panel on the market to deliver a user experience like never before.
AMX has already released the 20.3-inch and 19.4-inch panoramic models, available in tabletop and wall-mounted options. The Modero X Series 4.3-inch models will begin shipping in Q3 2012.
