Atlona announces immediate availability of new Velocity control firmware, plus recently-announced high-capacity hardware gateway and scheduling touch panel
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 1, 2020 – Atlona special virtual tradeshow event, AtlonaComm 20, launches today with the debut of Velocity 2.1, a new firmware update for its groundbreaking Velocity™ IP-enabled AV control, room scheduling, and device management platform. In addition, Atlona announces the immediate availability of two new hardware components. Collectively, the new software features and hardware will make it easier for integrators, tech managers, and end users to create and manage AV control and room scheduling environments.
Velocity 2.1 streamlines navigation, enhances control capabilities, and improves configuration efficiency. Velocity 2.1 enhancements include:
High-Capacity Gateway Now Shipping
Atlona announces the immediate availability of the AT-VGW-HW-20, their highest capacity Velocity hardware gateway. A key advantage of the second generation Velocity architecture is multi-room AV control and scheduling from a single gateway, substantially reducing cost of ownership compared to AV control platforms that require a separate processor per AV system or room. The VGW-HW-20 provides AV control for up to 20 rooms, and room scheduling for up to 40 rooms. Additional features include browser-based setup and management, BYOD control at no extra cost, centralized organization of Atlona AV devices, industry-standard secure data communications, failover protection (when a second redundant gateway is added), and Velocity Cloud Lite for remote configuration and management.
Touch Panel for Room Scheduling and AV Control Now Shipping
Atlona is also shipping its new AT-VSP-800 8” scheduling and AV control touch panel with integrated bezel lighting. For scheduling applications, the AT-VSP-800 is ideal for lobbies, hallways, or meeting space entrances where the bright LED lighting on the edge of the bezel provides a visual representation of room status. The panel can also be used inside huddle spaces, conference rooms, classrooms, lecture halls and other spaces where the outer frame lighting can add visual emphasis to AV control functions such as AV mute or divisible room state. Since the AT-VSP-800 can be configured for room scheduling or AV control within Velocity, system integrators and tech managers can eliminate the expense of purchasing and managing separate software platforms.
The Velocity range is of several prominently featured Atlona product families and solutions on display during AtlonaComm 20, along with the company’s growing family of Omega collaboration products, an expanded HDVS Series of PTZ cameras, and the successful OmniStream family of AV over IP products.
