AMX announced its plans to expand distribution through an agreement with Almo Professional A/V. Under the terms of the agreement, Almo Professional A/V now offers AMX's subscription-free Inspired XPress digital signage hardware/software line.

"This agreement is a major milestone for Almo and the professional AV industry," said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V, in a statement. "As the first distributor of AMX signage products, Almo is giving its partners access to a turnkey 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 have built a highly skilled sales team that is InfoComm-trained and DSCE-certified," said AMX vice president of business development Sean McNeil in a statement.

The Inspired XPress is based on a new type of player that provides a turnkey digital signage solution with customization capabilities. Its software tool allows users to 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 says it will host an Almo/AMX Digital Signage solution provider program. Almo will also provide resellers with educational opportunities for the Inspired XPress solution via live webinars, on-demand classes, and live instructor-led training at its E4 AV Tour, sponsored by InfoComm.
