Recently introducing the innovations of its most iconic product lines.
Atlona, a Panduit company, entered its third decade in business with a more defined vertical focus augmented through new innovations for flagship product lines.
Atlona set the tone for what was to come at InfoComm (June 14-16, Orlando), where the company demonstrated its new award-winning OmniStream™ AV over IP platform and its latest collaboration, connectivity, and control innovations for corporate and education customers. Atlona exhibited at Booth 4471.
OmniStream 2.0, which was previewed at ISE 2023 in February and took home a Future Best In Show Award from Installation, received its North American debut at InfoComm alongside new products from Atlona's Captivate™, Omega™, and Velocity™ product lines. Atlona also showed its latest HDR innovations, including the new AT-HDR-CAT family of distribution amplifiers also introduced at ISE.
2023 will be remembered as the year that tradeshows returned to full bloom. Following a highly successful ISE where we reconnected with our global partners and customers, this year's InfoComm provided a unique opportunity for the AV industry in the Americas to come together at full capacity and celebrate the technology trends that shaped our industry's emerging business opportunities. Atlona's booth reflected our vision for corporate and education customers, and we were excited to incorporate our latest product innovations, many new to InfoComm attendees, in creative ways across all demonstrations, said Jamey Swigert, Executive Director, Atlona.
Atlona exhibited new and existing products from core product lines across four distinct demos:
- Flexible Spaces – Atlona showed the power and range of its products to support small-to-medium-sized meeting spaces. Atlona created a new huddle space demo for InfoComm featuring three new products that showed how users could take control of USB peripherals for presentations. Atlona's new Captivate™ meeting room products (the AT-CAP-FC110 ePTZ camera and AT-CAP-SP100 speakerphone) were shown with the Omega AT-OME-CP-MH21 switcher, which all debuted in North America at InfoComm. A second demo for standard mid-sized meeting spaces showed how presenters could take control of a collaboration system upon entering a room with an Omega™ AT-OME-MS42 switcher.
- Education Demo – Adjacent to the meeting space demos was a dedicated education demo representing an interactive classroom. Visitors learned how the Omega AT-OME-PS62 switcher supported diverse connectivity options (HDMI, USB, DisplayPort) for instruction and learning, including interactive whiteboards. Atlona's AT-GAIN-120 provided distributed audio for in-room learners while AT-HDVS-CAM PTZ cameras, working with the OME-PS62, supported both physical and remote learners from the same system. The two cameras captured viewpoints fixed on the instructor and classroom.
- Networked AV – This zone provided a dedicated focus on OmniStream AV over IP and Velocity control solutions. Atlona demonstrated new OmniStream features from the new 2.0 firmware release, including 4K/60 video with 4:4:4 color sampling, improved bitrate efficiency through the VCx™ codec, and integrated multiview processing. Atlona showed how integrators and system operators could use Velocity Premier Services – Remote Gateway (AT-VPS-RG) to remotely configure, manage, and support multiple rooms over the internet. Atlona also showed new room configuration and management features for physical Velocity hardware gateways, software gateways, and touch panels.
Separately, Atlona shone a light on the flexibility of its AT-WAVE-101 presentation switcher, another product receiving its InfoComm debut. It was exhibited on a dedicated pod, and visitors could walk up to the compact WAVE-101 and establish fast, reliable connections to a laptop, tablet, or smartphone for wirelessly casting video content to a large display. Attendees explored how the device was used in moderator mode or enhanced instructor mode when used in corporate and education environments, respectively.
