Vewlix L AMI
Vewlix L AMI
Whilst shooters were, and still are, very popular in Japan a huge publisher of shmups AMI commissioned a series of Vewlix cabinets to run their games. The fact that every Vewlix cabinet can rotate its screen 90 degrees means that playing vertical shooters is spectacular to say the least.
The Ami model is known for its blue panels and blue marquee.
Originally the Velwix is JVS wired. That means it is able to host original arcade hardware which uses JVS wiring like the Taito Type X2.
If you want to use a console in the Vewlix we can wire it to your needs. We can fit compatibility for PS3, XB360, PC or a combination of consoles. Plug your console in and play!
The artwork upgrade consists of the artwork for the topper/marquee and the movelist. The artwork is printed onto high quality glossy paper and fitted inside the cabinet for you.
The sound of the Vewlix cabinets is great, but arcade operators need to keep the volume of the cabinets low so that the overall volume of the arcade is still acceptable. For that reason the vewlix mostly boasts high- and midrange tones. The subwoofer option utilizes the body of the Vewlix cabinet to enhance the power of the low tones. It also comes with a wired remote to be able to adjust the volume from within the control panel.
The light kit is applied to the marquee to illuminate the artwork on top. It is also placed underneath the movelist on the control panel. For some the light kit is the finishing touch for others its essential.
The Vewlix cabinets were built for arcades so they do not have extra buttons to pauze, return or go the the home screen. Using the Vewlix for a console means you are missing out on essential functions of the console. For that reason we've designed a plate that sits on the control panel which houses these extra buttons for both players. It's located underneath the black plastic cap on top of the control panel. The plastic panel becomes a cover to still have the vewlix look original but once you slide it off you'll have all the functionality of your console.
