AMX To Expand Distribution of Inspired XPress Line Through Almo Professional A/V

Almo Becomes First Distribution Partner; Deal Launches New Routes with Subscription-Free Digital Signage Products from AMX

RICHARDSON, Texas – May 21, 2010 – AMX®, the leading provider of solutions that simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments, today announced plans to expand distribution through an agreement with Almo Professional A/V, a leading U.S. distributor of consumer and professional audio visual products. Under the terms of the agreement, Almo Professional A/V now offers the AMX subscription-free Inspired XPress digital signage hardware/software line.

“This agreement is a major milestone for Almo and the professional A/V industry,” said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “As the first distributor of AMX signage products – one of the highest-regarded A/V brands – Almo is giving its partners access to a turn-key digital signage package so they can offer their customers an easy-to-use yet customizable signage solution. We’re augmenting this package by working with AMX to offer dedicated programs and trainings that help our partners make the most out of every digital signage sale.”

“Almo Professional A/V has an excellent reputation with its channel partners and has built a highly skilled sales team that is InfoComm-trained and DSCE-certified,” said AMX Vice President of Business Development Sean McNeill. “Almo is the ideal distributor to help AMX reach a new segment of the AV market.”

The cost-effective Inspired XPress is based on a new type of player that provides a powerful, turn-key digital signage solution with customization capabilities. Its simple, all-in-one software tool allows users to quickly and easily create templates and content, and then publish that content to tiny players that can easily be mounted behind a display.

Based on a Scalable Vector Graphics platform, it can blend streaming video, encoded video or images and audio file formats with other dynamic information such as RSS or XML feeds. It can play text in any direction and includes basic fonts for several languages and allows users to load customizable fonts to support corporate branding.

Almo Professional A/V will host an Almo/AMX Digital Signage Solution Provider program. Almo will also provide resellers with educational opportunities for the IS XPress solution via live webinars, on-demand classes, and live instructor-led training at its E4 AV Tour sponsored by InfoComm.

AMX is a member of the Digital Signage Association www.digitalsignageassociation.org. To learn more about AMX digital signage solutions please visit www.inspiredsignage.com.
