AMX said last week that Apple’s new iPad has joined the list of devices that can control its products. AMX’s Apple connectivity, the company said, will work both ways- an iPad can be used to control an AMX system, while the AMX system can be used to control the iPad’s music and video.

The integration will work similarly to existing systems on the iPod Touch and iPhone, as well as non-Apple devices such as BlackBerry and Android-based phones.

“AMX continues to champion a standards-based philosophy that simplifies technology integration, offers end users more choices and expands automation technology awareness,” AMX’s chief technology officer, Richard Noble, said as part of the announcement.
