For military personnel at the Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala., the amount of AMX technology in a small conference room proved a little too overwhelming. In other words, they had more than enough control options for basic in-classroom facilitation, such as video and PowerPoint presentations. Approximately 10 years after the installation of the current Axcent2 Control System, it was time to streamline the process of one-touch control and automation.

“It was really nice to be able to go in years later, plug in NetLinx Studio, and add the required upgrades to the Touch Panel so seamlessly,” Bell said. “I have used the other guy’s stuff and it’s so time consuming. NetLinx Studio does everything I expect it to do.”

“They wanted it to be more user-friendly,” said David Bell, Senior Design Engineer at Media Visions, Inc., of Birmingham, Ala. “They were very happy with what we had done so many years ago. Now, they wanted the technology to be more straight-forward.”

Rather than replace the entire system, the military college simply wanted to update the AMX Touch Panel design and on-screen commands. Not a problem. Bell walked into the conference room and completed the task in just half a day – thanks to NetLinx Studio software from AMX.

“I figured it would be simple,” Bell said. “I have always been extremely happy with AMX products. When NetLinx (Control System) came out, I had very few issues with the NetLinx Studio software. Every time I used it, I never encounted any major obstacles.”

The conference room incorporates audio, lighting, screen, projector and PowerPoint control and automation using a wireless AMX Modero ViewPoint (MVP) Touch Panel. Streamlining the process meant manipulating current code strings through a control system nearly a decade old. Bell took full advantage of NetLinx Studio’s backwards compatibility.

“It was really nice to be able to go in years later, plug in NetLinx Studio, and add the required upgrades to the Touch Panel so seamlessly,” Bell said. “I have used the other guy’s stuff and it’s so time consuming. NetLinx Studio does everything I expect it to do.”
