AV over IP is one of the fastest growing technologies in the AV industry, including commercial applications deployed by enterprises. Leveraging the trend is Atlona. The company will showcase at InfoComm, June 12-14, in Orlando, Fla., several new AV over IP applications via its latest OmniStream (AV over IP) and Velocity (IP based AV control) solutions.
“Our latest OmniStream and Velocity innovations amplify the value proposition of transitioning to an All-over-IP strategy with Atlona thanks to a robust, reliable and feature-rich toolset that supports complete room configurations,” says Gregory Mirsky, product manager, Networked AV, Atlona. “We continue to solve problems and simplify design and functionality for our global network of partners, systems integrators and end users as the industry continues its aggressive transition to IP networks and topologies.”
Video Wall Over IP
InfoComm marks the North American debut of OmniStream’s integrated processing functionality to enhance video wall performance. The embedded scaling, video processing and advanced video synchronization mechanisms in OmniStream decoders ensure precise synchronization of content between each decoder and corresponding display tile. The result is a single, cohesive image magnified across all displays.
New for InfoComm, OmniStream’s integrated video processing now supports 90/270 degrees image rotation which enables vertically-stacked video walls and portrait-mode which is common in digital signage applications. The enhanced functionality provides users with an easier and affordable solution to feed and manage content in retail, hospitality and campus environments where portrait-mode visuals captivate mobile audiences.
Zero UI Meeting Space
Zero UI Meeting Space will show how presentations can be conducted without the need for manual switching via a user interface or control screen. The Zero UI Meeting Space utilizes Atlona’s OmniStream encoder grouping strategy to automatically switch between sources in the meeting space or classroom. Upon sensing the presence of a new signal, the system will seamlessly transition to the corresponding encoder, and switch off routing from the previous encoder.
The Zero UI Meeting Space will exhibit how several contributors can collaborate on a single presentation, leveraging BYOD capability or peripherals installed in the space.
A new wallplate version of Atlona’s OmniStream 111 (AT-OMNI-111)encoder, the AT-OMNI-111-WP, will debut at InfoComm and be featured in the demonstration. The compact, two-gang wallplate supports 4K/UHD @ 60Hz, full HDR, and standard IEEE 802.3af PoE powering.
Atlona will also demonstrate quick “any-to-any” routing of multimedia sources in the All-IP Meeting Space. This includes low-latency routing and distribution of video, audio and USB traffic between many sources and distributions, and with seamless interoperability.
Atlona’s new fast switching feature plays an important role in Atlona’s “any-to-any routing” strategy by substantially accelerates switching time for sources. With switching time reduced to less than 10 milliseconds, Atlona’s fast switching innovation outperforms competitive products for switching speed across packet-based AV systems.
In addition to OmniStream encoders and decoders, the demonstration will include Atlona’s complete range of network-switchable OmniStream USB over IP device adapters (AT-OMNI-311, AT-OMNI-324), and AT-HDVS-CAM USB PTZ camera.
