Atlona Announces Availability Of Velocity 2.0

News Image
Atlona has announced the immediate availability of Velocity 2.0, the next generation of the AV industry's first fully IP-enabled platform for AV control, room scheduling, and asset management.

The latest Velocity System platform offers a flexible new architecture to support various room and application requirements – several of which Atlona will demonstrate within its ISE 2020 stand (5-T50).

Atlona's latest Velocity System design innovations further simplify how consultants and integrators plan and scale AV control system designs, covering everything from single room to enterprise-wide installations utilizing a streamlined, IP-based architecture. The new release integrates several new and important capabilities at no extra cost, including room scheduling, unlimited BYOD usage for AV control, integration with leading soft codec platforms (Zoom Rooms, Cisco WebEx), AV asset management, and remote monitoring and management from the cloud.

At ISE 2020, which marks the public debut of Velocity 2.0, Atlona will showcase these and other valuable benefits in multible, live demonstrations across the stand:

A standalone environment that highlights Velocity AV system control configurations, room booking and scheduling applications, and integration with the Atlona Management System (AMS) for configuration and management of Velocity and IP-connected AV devices.
Integration with Atlona OmniStream AV over IP, Omega presentation and collaboration products, and Opus HDR distribution and matrix products with a focus on video wall management, source routing, and ease of use for system users and integrators.

Atlona also announces the AT-VSP-800 8” room scheduling and AV control touch panel that will ship in early February. With integrated bezel LED lighting, the panel is ideal for lobbies, hallways, or meeting space entrances that require a quick and easy way of visualizing room availability at a distance in scheduling applications.

Alternatively, the panel can instead be used within huddle spaces, conference rooms, classrooms, lecture halls and other spaces that require powerful AV control. In these cases, the lights on the outer frame of the touch panel can be used to reinforce awareness of AV control functions, such as AV mute or divisible room state.

Systems integrators and tech managers can configure the AT-VSP-800 for either room scheduling or AV control within the Velocity System Gateway, eliminating the expense of purchasing and managing separate software platforms. Installers save additional time and money through the panel’s compact mounting footprint, which offers universal compatibility within walls or furniture via a one-gang US, UK or EU opening.

Velocity retains the functionality and benefits that made it a groundbreaking AV control system, including an IT-friendly architecture, built-in disaster recovery, and the ability to quickly configure, modify and extend control systems without extensive programming. The updated Velocity System platform includes new hardware (VGW-HW) and software (VGW-SW) server gateways to serve AV control installations over the network, while eliminating the expense of and requirement for a standalone control processor in each specific room or space.
