AMX has expanded its range of Modero touch screen panel user interfaces with the introduction of a new 10" widescreen format. The company claim that the Modero 10" which will be on show at the CEDIA Expo in Surfers Paradise, has been introduced to satisfy the market's need for an affordable, mid-sized touch panel, while offering substantial screen space for easy accommodation of graphics, icons and video windows.
For those environments where space is critical, the Modero 10" provides more visible screen area because of its 16 x 9 aspect ratio, but with a smaller overall footprint, providing greater visibility around the panel. The panel is available in wall mounted and table top configurations, which are offered with optional external pushbuttons and wireless capabilities. Wireless capabilities are provided by means of an 802.11b Wi-Fi Card, which allows users to benefit from the freedom of wireless control, ultimately eliminating unsightly cables to create an aesthetically pleasing environment. The Modero 10" incorporates the latest G4 graphics, with outstanding high resolution, colour, contrast and brightness. Utilising colour active LCD technology and 800 x 480 resolution, graphics and video appear clear and sharp. The 10" Modero features 18-bits per pixel of colour depth, 350+cd/m2 peak brightness and a 200:1 contrast ratio.
Multi-media options include built-in speakers and microphone, a headphone connection and the ability to play back MP3 and WAV audio files. A photosensitive light detector on the front of the panel determines surrounding degrees of light and automatically regulates the brightness of the display. In common with all of the latest generation AMX touch panels, the Modero 10" comes with 64MB of memory and compact flash, to support more graphically rich user interface designs and to retain valuable data in the event of unforeseen power loss. Commenting on the introduction of the new Modero 10" panel, Rashid Skaf, President and Chief Operating Officer of AMX Corporation, said: "The AMX 10.4" Colour LCD TiltScreen has enjoyed tremendous success for many years, but we felt a new panel of that size should be extended into the Modero Touch Panel family to incorporate the latest technological advancements offered only through a Modero. AMX is now able to offer a large selection of Modero Touch Panel sizes and features to integrate well into any environment. The full range of sizes includes 7", 7.5", 8.4", 10", 12", 15", and 17". This enhanced and complete range fulfils customer demand and broadens our market base."
