AMX produces multiple video case studies each year, with extensive film footage and interviews conducted to promote the project's success. These videos are shared on AMX's YouTube channel as well as promoted through all social networks both locally and internationally. They have been used by HARMAN executives globally and we are continuously asked for additional videos.

AMX will produce your video from script creation, production coordination, filming and editing to provide you with a professional video that can be used internally and externally in recognition of your project achievements.

AMX & Beyond 2015 Roadshow

Our AMX & Beyond 2015 Roadshow began with a BANG! last week in our hometown of Brisbane, shortly followed by stops in Sydney and then Melbourne.

So far, the response from our partners has been overwhelmingly positive, with all round excitement at our new product additions and the fact that we can now offer a complete end to end solution!

With sound amplified by our JBL speakers and microphones provided by AKG, attendees were able to see, touch and experience the new products from HARMAN Audio.

The SVSi networked AV demonstrations, including the mind blowing 4K Video Wall, left the audience in no doubt of the exciting future that the AMX by HARMAN family will bring to Australia.  

Such a lot of careful planning and behind the scenes preparation has gone into this event and with close to 200 attentive industry partners within our audiences already we can refer to this event as a resounding success.

Looking forward to landing in Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland and Wellington in the coming weeks!

Singapore Study Tour

As part of the prize package presented to our yearly AMX Best Project Award recipients, the winners are invited to attend our annual Singapore Study Tour.

Held every year and hosted by AMX Australia in conjunction with AMX Asia Pacific, VIP behind the scenes access is given to several world-leading AV deployments within the Singapore region. 

During this year’s 4 day event, delegates spent time touring Singapore's landmark projects and some hugely impressive AV installations including the Singapore Sports Hub, James Cook University Singapore, Singapore Stock Exchange, Singapore General Hospital, Schroders in Singapore and Marina Bay Sands Singapore Hotel.

The Study Tour provided an incredible opportunity to experience AV deployments that have achieved global recognition and to meet the people behind them. It was informative and enjoyable for all involved and remains one of the most exclusive events in the AV Industry. 

We thank all of those who attended this year and look forward to next year.
