ATEN launches its Presentation Switcher series at ISE2018

ATEN launches its Presentation Switcher series at ISE2018


Heusden-Zolder, February 6, 2018 - Over the past years, ATEN specialized in centralizing the control of commonly used hardware devices in presentation and meeting rooms with its ‘VK Hardware control’-series. Cooperating with KNX, ATEN opens the path to yet another standard communication interface next to infrared, serial commands, I/O, relays and ethernet control.


In 2018, ATEN takes the next step in conferencing. The company developed a new line of presentation switchers named the ATEN VP-series. A first model, the VP1970 presentation switcher, will be launched at ISE in Amsterdam, supporting audio-visual connectivity in huddle spaces and small conference rooms. Throughout the year, the all-round models will become available, supporting live streams and file sharing via internet, allowing people to connect and collaborate with colleagues and partners around the world.


Launching its ‘VP presentation switcher’-series, ATEN expands to yet another market in the pro-AV business. The company is already an established developer of mass media distribution hardware. ATEN matrix switches are known to combine videowall, scaler and Seamless switching functionality in a single rack-mountable device. They connect up to 32 sources and 32 displays at hardware level, regardless of the operating system used. Being awarded for their usability, ATEN’s matrix switches are easy to control from a central browser interface (ethernet), infrared, serial commands or pushbuttons. This year at ISE, ATEN will launch an HDMI True 4K expansion boards for its modular matrix switches, which already supports HDMI, DVI, HDBaseT, 3G-SDI and VGA.


System integrators will also be satisfied to find HDBaseT connectivity also in ATEN’s presentation switchers. In 2017, ATEN upgraded its membership to become an active R&D partner to the HDBaseT community, herewith, the company leverages its 40 years of experience in the KVM, IT and AV business. IT has become an integral part of the audiovisual industry. Becoming a research partner in the HDBaseT association, ATEN guarantees its position at the heart of reliable video, audio, USB, Ethernet, infrared and serial connectivity over standard cat5e/6a Ethernet infrastructure.


With the help of many local system integrators, ATEN installed videowalls and media distribution in meeting and conference rooms throughout Europe. Among others, the list includes the Spanish government, a German research facility, the main Italian Business Association and a Belgian theme park. These are all examples of case-studies free to consult at www.aten.eu. As stated by Save Technology, an Italian system integrator, “The wide interoperability ATEN products offer, made the installation of the entire project really convenient to us.”.
