EAG News: Andamiro introducing new GX cabinet for Pump It Up

arcadehero January 25, 2011 6

Today in London an annual coin-op game/amusement expo called EAG 2011 kicked off and as such expect to see coverage from that show popping up on the site over the next few days as many different coin-op manufacturers gather to show off their latest products which will be available in Europe and some elsewhere in North America. Arcade Heroes writer HeavyElectricity is there and should be posting some updates any time over these days. We also have other AH contributors on site and as such we’ve received a scoop from BMI Gaming in regards to Andamiro’s plans for their Pump It Up cabinets. Please keep in mind that we do not have any pictures of this new model at the moment (the pictured cabinet is for reference regarding Andamiro’s previous 42″ models) but we will update this post once we get them. Here’s the info:

Andamiro will be discontinuing the 42″ models as of next month and will re-introduce lower cost GX style cabinets in the $7-8k range starting sometime in the next 8-12 weeks

The 42″ model is known as the FX and was used for games like Pump It Up Pro 2 and NX Absolute.  Stay tuned.

    Here’s to hoping they ditch the CRTs and go to smaller 32″ LCD monitors

      The FX models which they are discontinuing were using flat screen plasmas I believe, so the GX model will certainly use a flat panel of some kind, we just don’t know the size yet.

    Here’s to hoping for a high res CRT flat tube display. Direct display is awesome. The lag presented by LCD, Plasma, and other new “better” technologies and timing based music games don’t get along very well. Even if the game does have obnoxiously large windows like Guitar Hero and the likes.

      What is needed is for someone to pick up SED technology and release that, at least for the arcade industry. It uses CRT-like technology in a flat panel display and that would solve the issues we see with response time.

    PIU Cabinets Update – The new “TX” Style cabinets will remain, and we will try to find out if the re-introduced GX cabs will be using CRT or LED monitors from Andamiro on the show floor today.. Cheers Mates!
