Do AMX Dealers and Independents have access to demo licenses?
Absolutely. Verified AMX Dealers and Independents have access to "180-Day Dealer" licenses for TPControl. 180-Day Dealer licenses automatically reset back to 180-days whenever additional purchases are made, thus they are a perpetually renewing license. Please contact us to request demo licenses, or if you have any questions.UP
Are there discounts available if I purchase bulk licences?
We do offer discounts for bulk purchases, please contact us to discuss.UP
Can I move my licence to a new device when I upgrade it?
Yes, by using TPTransfer you can select the device you would like to deauthorize and press "Tools->Deauthorize" within the application. Once completed you can use your original token on another device compatible with the same "Device type" as the token.UP
Which generation iPhone/iPod Touch do you recommend?
Simply put, the processors within the 1st Gen and 2nd Gen devices are a lot slower than the 3rd Gen and iPad. There is a significant performance difference between the 3G and 3GS iPhone as an example, approx by 200 MHz. Although TPControl works on the devices we highly recommend using at least a 3rd generation device or higher in an install.UP
What Android devices are recommended for use with TPControl?
Please review our section Android devices that have been classified for use with TPControlUP
I've seen the dealer price, what is the MSRP?
TPC offers the iPhone applications globally referenced at a US Dollar price. This is the price to authorized AMX dealers and distributors. Because market demand and pricing sensitivities vary greatly in different markets, TPC allows the local AMX channel to set their Sales Price as appropriate to their market.UP
How do I make money when there is no MSRP?
TPC empowers the dealer to determine the best end-user price for their market. TPC can enable additional revenue by opening markets where traditional touch panels were overkill and by creating demand from existing installations for more AMX products. Dealer revenue can be driven from either a markup on the device licence itself or on the integration and development services for the TP4 file used on the device.UP
Are there any issues with iTunes allowing sync with only 5 devices?
There is no restriction imposed by TPControl on iTunes regarding syncing with one or more devices. The TPControl application can be downloaded to each device from the AppStore. The TPTransfer software can be hosted on any (including multiple) Windows PCs, and transfers TP4 files to one or many devices.UP
How many devices can I use a licence on?
A licence is limited to use on one device only and is associated with the device itself, not with TPTransfer.UP
What happens if a user loses their device or upgrades to a newer device?
In the case a user loses their device or no longer can access their device, a deauthorization can be made manually by requesting a "deauthorization" within the user tokens section on the website. You can access your tokens by visiting "My Account>Tokens:Tpcontrol Licenses (TPCloud)"UP

What is AMX APP (Authorized Product Partner)?

There has been much conjecture over the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in recent weeks, most of which pertains to the size of its touch panel display.
TPControl currently unavailable on the Apple App Store
Here at Touch Panel Control we strive to introduce new and exciting features for the TPControl product family.
Unfortunately in our latest Apple AppStore submission, we discovered an error would occur in the upgrade process which would potentially render using the existing TP4 design file impossible.
To prevent existing users experiencing this problem we have temporarily removed TPControl from the Apple AppStore.
A corrected version is now awaiting Apple approval. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but trust you will love the new features that will soon be available.
