Panasonic, Sony, NEC, Christie Digital and Others Blaze the Trail to AMX Elite Partner Status and Recognize a Better Way to Offer AV Industry More Device Choices ORLANDO, Florida – June 12, 2013 – At InfoComm 2013, AMX® expanded its acclaimed InConcert® Manufacturer Partner program by announcing a new Elite Partner level. Some of the first manufacturers to be recognized as Elite Partners were honored for their efforts to join AMX in developing quicker, easier ways to create programming device modules to give AMX dealers and ultimately the end user a much wider array of device choices when designing a control and automation system. AMX proudly announced Panasonic, Sony, NEC and Christie Digital as its first Elite partners. One of the quicker, easier ways that manufacturers are creating and delivering device drivers/modules is by utilizing the AMX Driver Design tool. Driver Design is an incredible leap forward for the AV industry by offering manufacturers the ability to create, test and post their own device drivers directly to the AMX.com website. By allowing manufacturers to design their own drivers, they can speed driver creation and delivery for many more products – getting them right to the dealer, faster than ever before. After successfully using AMX Driver Design, here's what some of the maverick Elite Partners are saying: From Christie Digital: "This latest advancement in module creation for AMX systems allows NEC to provide tested projector and large screen display modules for our respective customers before product is released to the market. We look forward to a new era in programming." "I was able to create a driver and test it on a new projector within an hour of running the software for the first time. The hardest part about the whole process was tracking down the correct projector commands within our own organization." From NEC: "This latest advancement in module creation for AMX systems allows NEC to provide tested projector and large screen display modules for our respective customers before product is released to the market. We look forward to a new era in programming." From Panasonic: "There's nothing like it from other manufacturers. This concept is totally unique and much appreciated." "Having the ability to quickly author our own projector control modules on a timely basis is a great benefit. It helps us feel like we're in control of the process." From Sony: "I have never seen an application made so simple to develop drivers. Others require knowledge of a specific software language and a good understanding of how the control system works. AMX made is easy for me!"
