AMX acquires SchoolView Technologies

AMX® announced today the acquisition of SchoolView Technologies, LLC., a Plano, Texas based company. AMX introduced a partnership with SchoolView Technologies in February of 2010 and launched the AMX|SchoolView solutions combining hardware and software that integrates disparate building systems to deliver a central command center in a single location using existing data networks.

AMX|SchoolView solutions aim to control costs while providing high quality service. The scalable solution consolidates management and control of traditional bell, clock and PA systems, while addressing the management and control needs of classroom audio, video and presentation tools at the district, building and classroom level.

"We have been impressed with both the quality of the products and the people at SchoolView over the past 18 months and are glad to officially welcome them to the AMX family. AMX is capitalizing on the success of this partnership with a solution that aims directly at controlling costs at a time when K-12 schools are being challenged more and more to show a true return on their investment," said AMX President and CEO Rashid Skaf.

AMX|SchoolView provides features such as remote system diagnostics, tracking projector use and lamp life and instant notification if devices are disconnected - an important theft deterrence. AMX|SchoolView offers centralized control of security cameras to mass alert notifications, and can deliver synchronized alerts and messages to all rooms including portable classrooms.
