AMX Expands VoIP Capabilities of Modero Touch Panel Line

AMSTERDAM – Jan. 30, 2007 - AMX®, a worldwide leader in advanced control system technology, today announced that it has integrated intercom with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology into its popular 10-inch Modero Touch Panel (NXD-1000Vi). New capabilities include panel-to-panel communication, as well enhanced touch sensitivity. The touch panel will be demonstrated in AMX booth C30 at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), being held Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 in Amsterdam.

AMX first announced it was adding VoIP technology to its flagship Modero Touch Panel line at CEDIA Expo 2006. VoIP-enabled versions of the 8.4-inch Modero ViewPoint (MVP-8400i) and 7-inch Modero (NXD-700Vi) Touch Panels are available today and are already being installed in homes, condominiums, hotels and other commercial and educational facilities around the world.

“With our VoIP-enabled Moderos, a separate intercom system is no longer needed, which simplifies communication between rooms,” said Robert Noble, AMX chief technology officer. “This not only streamlines installation and integration for our customers, it also reduces equipment costs and minimizes wall clutter for users.”

All three touch panels meet the International Telecommunication Union – Telecommunication Standardization Sector‘s (ITU-T) G.711 sound standard, enabling them to deliver a telephone-quality user experience. Their full-feature intercom capabilities include:
Two-way communication - Place panel-to-panel calls within the home or commercial building, or from a condominium unit or hotel room to the concierge.
One-way pages – Broadcast a message to all touch panels within the home or commercial building.
One-way monitoring – Listen only; this feature is perfect for homes with nurseries and playrooms.
Privacy option - Choose to disable all intercom capabilities for a temporary period of time; this option is ideal when taking a nap or participating in an important conference call.
Hands-free communication – Engage in interactive panel-to-panel conversations without holding down a button.

Touch panel pages for intercom functionality are available for download on AMX.com. All the system integrator will need to do is configure the system to meet individual customer needs and preferences. This easy process begins with assigning each Modero a name, such as Kitchen or Master Bedroom. Additional options include enabling monitoring capabilities and privacy options for each, as well as whether or not panel-to-panel intercom calls should be automatically accepted or accepted only via a pop-up window on the panel.

The NXD-1000Vi will be available within 90 days.
