Brussels, Belgium–AMX has revealed that that nine more equipment manufacturers are embedding AMX Dynamic Device Discovery Technology into current and future products, which will reduce the time it takes to integrate their devices with an AMX control system.
Altinex, Inc., Arcam Ltd., Audio Control, Imerge Ltd., Key Digital Systems, KnoxVideo Technologies, Rane Corporation, WolfVision Inc., and Yamaha Corp.’s AV Products Division are all working with AMX to make integrating their hardware with an AMX control system a seamless, simple process.
This brings to 40 the number of manufacturers embedding AMX Dynamic Device Discovery technology into their product lines. “The first products embedding Dynamic Device Discovery are expected to hit the market this quarter–less than a year after AMX launched our partner program. This significant achievement results from our shared desire to offer AMX dealers and their customers the newest device models available,” said Rashid Skaf, president and CEO, AMX. “Once AMX dealers begin integrating these products into their customers’ systems, they will immediately recognize and appreciate the inherent benefits resulting from this extensive industry collaboration.”
Dynamic Device Discovery is part of AMX’s Duet platform, which combines the reliability and power of NetLinx with the extensive capabilities of the Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) platform. When integrating a serial or IP device from a manufacturer embedding Dynamic Device Discovery technology, Duet recognizes the device and loads the appropriate Duet module, which automatically installs the new device. AMX’s NetLinx Master can then find and install the Duet device module either from a library on the master, from AMX’s website, or from the manufacturer’s website. Duet also allows for device swapping so that programming changes are not required when devices with Dynamic Device Discovery are removed or replaced, a huge benefit for end users.
