The ARM and digital signal processor (DSP) processing architecture offered by the OMAP device enables AMX to deliver advanced graphical user interfaces (GUIs) so consumers can navigate on-screen functions with multiple windows, monitor remote security cameras and control audio and video equipment at the same time. Additionally, the multi-core design of the OMAP processor simultaneously supports numerous functions, such as video encoding/decoding and playback, 2D/3D graphics and audio. This gives AMX the edge in designing multi-functional touch panels with exceptional system efficiency to instantly run applications without compromising performance. With several power modes from full-powered to processor shutdown, the Modero ViewPoint touch panels for instance, take advantage of the sophisticated power management framework to yield greater energy savings by turning off unused peripherals based on the user's activity and modes of operation.
"We are dedicated to developing flexible, compact and innovative solutions that allow consumers to easily automate their entire home or corporate environment from managing audio and video equipment, changing the thermostat, checking who is at the front door to making a phone call with just a single touch of a button," said Robert Noble, Chief Technology Officer, AMX. "By working with TI, we are able to address customer's growing demands for products featuring the latest, cutting-edge technologies that are easy to operate to ultimately simplify their lives."
