AMX has released the 7- and 10-inch Modero X Series Touch Panels.
The smaller, widescreen versions belong to a family of touch panels that were designed to incorporate multi-touch capabilities such as gesturing, swiping and tapping.
“95 percent of the success of a control system is the user interface,” said Robert Noble, AMX chief technology officer. “Individuals the world over have become accustomed to the use of command-based gesturing, tapping and scrolling to interface with their technology. The user interface of the Modero X Series takes this human element of interacting with technology to a higher degree of intuitiveness – so the user can actually take advantage of the advanced functionality onboard. These touch panels are unlike anything else out in the market.”
The new 7 and 10-inch models include a capacitive, multi-touch screen, high-definition video streaming, Bluetooth VoIP and USB external phone connections. The 10-inch adds a high definition camera for video chat and conferencing (in tabletop and wall landscape models).
The Modero X Series also support Near Field Communications (NFC). NFC enables device personalization by allowing two devices in close proximity to exchange data, such as between a smartphone and another NFC-enabled device.
AMX has already released the 20.3-inch and 19.4-inch panoramic models, available in tabletop and wall-mounted options. The Modero X Series 4.3-inch models will begin shipping in Q3 2012.
