At ISE next week, Atlona will introduce Velocity, a new AV system control platform for Atlona and third-party products for use in individual meeting rooms up to an entire campus or enterprise.
The Velocity Control System allows fast AV system configuration and deployment, plus centralised management for multiple clients and site installations. It also features a cloud and premise-based system architecture that can be scaled up to 500 room systems or more, as well as full redundancy capability that prevents AV control downtime in any room.
Velocity is comprised of three distinct elements that work together as a single, unified platform: Velocity Control Suite, Velocity Control Gateway, and Velocity Touch Panels.
Velocity Control Suite is a cloud-based service and centralised resource for integrators to create and manage their AV control projects by client, client sites, and specific locations such as rooms. Velocity Control Gateway is a software-based control processor that resides on-site with the client’s AV systems. It is configured and managed remotely through the Velocity Control Suite. For user interaction with AV systems, Atlona offers Velocity Touch Panels in 5.5in and 8in screen sizes. Additionally, the Velocity Control System allows BYOD integration with tablets, smartphones, and laptops, as well as PC desktops and touch displays. The web-based GUIs are automatically generated by the Velocity Control Suite, and accessible to the touchpanels or BYOD user devices through the Velocity Control Gateway.
“When we created Velocity, we envisioned a new architecture and design concepts aimed at resolving many longstanding limitations and challenges associated with AV control system integration,” said David Shamir, director of product management, Atlona. “Velocity is intended not only to be simple to use and time-saving for integrators, but also give them the opportunity to scale up operations, and pursue new and larger integration opportunities.”
