RPM is a cloud-based configuration tool that allows A/V technicians and IT professionals to configure an AMX system by using a step-by-step, wizard-based approach. It is designed to help throughout the process, from start to finish, with no programming required.
The next day I caught up with Jackson at SMU (full video interview on first page), to get his opinion of RPM. He had signed up for a beta version of RPM and will be loading a DVX. He said, “If I can program, anyone can.” Although RPM doesn’t actually require programming knowledge, Jackson concedes that while he will now be able to design, configure and deploy his cookie cutter “AMX rooms,” he will still need the expertise of integrators for programing one-off rooms and more complicated systems.
