At Integrated Systems Europe 2011, AMX announced a new version of its Inspired XPert digital signage platform that improves support for large signage deployments.

The platform now includes the new compact IS-XPT-2000 player, which fits adjacent to displays in digital signage deployments and simplifies installation for dealers. The new player replaces AMX's existing rack-mounted player.

The new player comes with an enhanced version of Inspired XPert Composer content management software. AMX officials said a recurring problem with large digital signage deployments is the tendency for content to become out of date, or for its appearance to degrade due to uncoordinated or poorly designed content published by many contributors. Composer incorporates a range of content management and workflow features that help manage large deployments with numerous contributors to help eliminate this problem.

"Today a typical digital signage shopper evaluates his choices based on the content a vendor creates, not considering how difficult it can be to create and manage their own content–especially in larger deployments with multiple contributors. The end result is often digital signage messaging without the desired impact," said Robert Noble, AMX chief technology officer, in a statement.

"Inspired XPert offers intuitive templates that allow multiple users to quickly create engaging signage content, and through its workflow management tools, funnel the content to an administrator who can check for quality and branding concerns before publishing," Noble explained. "With Inspired XPert, the beautiful signage you envisaged when you installed your network appears on your screens each and every day."

With a 1080p-enabled player, Inspired XPert delivers HD multimedia content across a building, a campus, or around the world. Professionally developed, ready-made templates let users create layered, custom messages consisting of video, images, animation, online content, news feeds and advertisements. The templates allow users to place the video, text and images, independently, anywhere on the screen.

Inspired XPert can extend beyond conventional digital signage by giving users the ability to orchestrate these with lighting, audio, and other triggered events through AMX NetLinx Control.
