AGT Director Achieves AMX Solutions Master Status

Ben Hitt Expands Certification Portfolio with Rare Distinction

Kennesaw, Ga. (April 14, 2016) – Applied Global Technologies (AGT), a full-service audio visual integrator that designs, installs and manages collaboration environments, today announces its Director of Audio Visual Integration – Ben Hitt – has achieved the AMX Solutions Master (ASM) Certification. Hitt’s ASM status supports AGT’s Audio Visual (A/V) Integration practice, which delivers A/V services that are innovative and forward-thinking to large corporations, government entities, small to medium-sized businesses and educational institutions. Hitt has worked in the A/V industry with AGT for over 15 years and was promoted to his current position in 2014.

There are fewer than 50 active AMX Solutions Masters in the world, making Hitt’s status extremely rare. To accomplish this rating, Hitt was required to achieve AMX Certified Expert status in six different disciplines – Design (ACE-D), Installation (ACE-I), Programming (ACE-P), Resource Management Suite (ACE-RMS), Digital Signage (ACE-DS) and Integrated Solutions (ACE-INT). Along the way, Hitt, like most students who achieve this status, attended 23 days of Instructor Led Training and completed multiple practical exams to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter. Hitt adds the ASM distinction to his expanding certification portfolio, which includes InfoComm CTS, Crestron DMC-E-4K and Crestron RL certifications, among others.

“Ben’s ASM certification demonstrates AGT’s commitment to providing our clients with the best solutions and services on the market,” says Mark Cray, CEO of AGT. “Having premier certifications from industry-leading manufacturers reinforces our efforts to keep our clients ahead of the technology curve. We are excited to combine our A/V proficiency with Ben’s ASM expertise and to expand our full range of A/V capabilities.”

“We congratulate Ben on his outstanding achievement and certification,” says Chris Backus, College of AMX Senior Manager. “This certification represents someone who thoroughly understands the AMX product line and how to maximize usage of platform capabilities, and we look forward to working with Ben and the AGT team on future projects.”
