At last week's Integrated Systems Europe show, AMX unveiled the Inspired XPress IS-SPX-1000 digital signage solution, an end-to-end solution tailored for organizations that want to manage all aspects of their digital signage, including content creation, according to the company.
Inspired XPress includes hardware with an intuitive software interface that allows staff to create templates and content and then publish content to SPX-1000 players, which are small enough to mount behind almost any display and have no moving parts, AMX officials said. The devices run on 2 watts of power and include an embedded web server, metric collection capability, and HDMI/VGA video outputs.
Other Inspired XPress features include flexible data integration, with support for RSS feeds; a wide variety of graphics, including JPEG, PNG, GIF, and SVG still images; MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and WMV 9 SD motion video; and PowerPoint presentations. The solution also supports multiple languages, message scheduling software, and SD live video.
Standards-based architecture technology, such as Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) and XML, produce graphics that are smaller, transmit more quickly, and are scalable without resolution loss, company officials said. An administrator can use the IS-SPX-1000 embedded Web server to take a snapshot that shows exactly what is playing on the connected display for status or reporting purposes.
Inspired XPress IS-SPX-1000 features both HDMI and VGA simultaneous, independent, active video output connections.
