AMX and Medialon
Collaboration Simplifies Show Control for the Live Entertainment Industry
AMX has partnered with Medialon to simplify show control for the live entertainment industry. A key component of this relationship is a new plug-in that enables Medialon's Manager Software to interface with any NetLinx Control System.
Medialon provides software-based control systems for audiovisual equipment and digital media. A leader in the show control market, the company's customers include many of the largest museums in the world, as well as the most prestigious theme parks and entertainment venues. Its award-winning Manager Software allows users to program and synchronize an unlimited number of devices, including audio, video, lighting, image processors and special effects.
The new AMX-Medialon interface will enable facility and/or event staff to centrally control individual devices via the AMX Control System and/or initiate show control sequences using Medialon's Manager Software. This capability, which is not possible with any other single or combined solution available today, addresses customer requests to streamline the number of interfaces required to operate these two disparate systems.
"Nice to see AMX tackle this one. ... Show Control requires a different interface (and thought process) than room control. Nice to see the need recognized. I hope others follow suit and create the show-control products next year's shows will need." - Gary Kayye, rAVe Newsletter, December 3, 2007
