Biamp, Beaverton, Ore.-based supplier of professional audiovisual solutions, announced the Apprimo Touch 8i, an 8-inch touch control panel. The new Apprimo touch panel combines the ease of use and flexibility of a touch panel with an integrated controller from Biamp’s line of Impera control systems. According to the company, it thus provides streamlined installation and exceptional room control.
The Apprimo Touch 8i joins Biamp’s newly introduced line of Apprimo touch interfaces. These interfaces offer enhanced flexibility in room control and nearly unlimited options in UI design. As a result, they make it easy to configure, operate and manage AV equipment in a wide array of spaces. These include performance venues, lecture theaters, conference rooms, classrooms, courts and more.
“With any new product, our goal is always to make it easy to spec, easy to configure, easy to install and easy to use,” says Joe Andrulis, EVP of corporate development at Biamp.
He adds, “The Apprimo Touch 8i delivers on this goal by combining the flexibility and attractiveness of a touch panel with the power of an integrated controller that excels at simplifying the complex — eliminating the need for external processors, thereby reducing installation time and complexity. The Apprimo Touch 8i is an extraordinary control solution for both customers and integrators.”
According to Biamp, the Apprimo Touch 8i is its first touch panel to integrate a touch interface with built-in Impera control technology. With this, it helps deliver a convenient all-in-one solution. Reducing hardware and installation time, the Apprimo Touch 8i also features a powerful processor. Per the company, the processor can control up to 20 IP-based devices.
Users can also configure the Apprimo Touch 8i with Biamp’s Project Designer. This is an easy and intuitive drag-and-drop control-system design program that supports all Impera control products. As a result, it lets users quickly and easily design a complete room-control system.
Project Designer also includes a range of professionally designed user-interface templates. It has an extensive device driver library to help integrators deploy attractive, highly functional control systems that support the most popular AV components. The sleek, modern design of the Touch 8i also complements any room, Biamp says. Moreover, it offers single-cable installation to easily mount flat on a wall, angled on a wall or on a table.
The new Apprimo product family encompasses all of Biamp’s touch interfaces. These include the previously released TEC-X control pads and the 4-, 7- and 10-inch touch panels.
