IRVINE, CA – May 10, 2021 – ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, today announced the launch of its new 4K HDMI over IP Extender with Power over Ethernet, the VE8952. The VE8952T (Transmitter) and VE8952R (Receiver) provide power through compatible ethernet cables and are an effective and easy-to-use solution that directly addresses the challenges system integrators encounter when deploying AV over IP networks.

From a simple point-to-point set up to hundreds of endpoints, the VE8952 offers flexibility, scalability, and multi-functionality in extender, splitter, matrix switch, and video wall applications. It effortlessly allows switching input sources via top panel pushbuttons/ID display while having a simple configuration that does not require extensive IT experience to expand the AV network coverage without cable clutter or extra network switches, ultimately translating to lower per-port costs. Additionally, the VE8952 works with ATEN’s VE8950 Mobile Control app for previewing, monitoring, and management of video sources through any mobile device.

Being exceptionally flexible as well as cost-effective, AV over IP is ideal for long-distance video displays making the VE8952 perfect for digital advertisements at a mall, flight information throughout an airport, or digital signage in large department stores or convention centers.

“ATEN’s VE8952 extenders deliver lossless 4K AV signals over a Cat5e/6 Ethernet cable with low latency over a long distance on an IP network. The beauty of our VE89 Extender Series, such as the VE8952, is that they can be daisy-chained, allowing an increased distance between the video source and the display, and a clean cable layout.” said Christian Young, product manager, ATEN Technology, Inc. “With the use of a network switch, different video sources can be extended over a long distance to many video displays. Therefore, the VE8952 is especially suitable for digital advertising at shopping centers, wayfinding information displays, airport displays, convention centers, educational campuses, and all other locations that require similar setups.”

• Extends AV connections from a simple point-to-point to a multi-point to multi-point setup via LAN
• Delivers visually lossless high-quality video up to 4K @ 30 Hz 4:4:4
