IRVINE, CA – September 12, 2018 – ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, will join Almo Professional A/V, North America’s largest professional audio visual (AV) distributor with global reach, to give resellers, integrators, and consultants the opportunity to learn how to create powerful integrated AV experiences during the award-winning E4 AV Tour, stopping in Boston on September 21 and Nashville on October 26. At both events, ATEN will provide live and static demos of its most popular Pro AV solutions, as well as offer an HDBaseT Certification course for integrators.
With education partner AVIXA, the Almo Professional A/V E4 tour offers AV professionals the experience of a full day of educational sessions worth AVIXA CTS Renewal Units (RUs), as well as a showroom filled with exclusive access to the newest AV products and services. The fall E4 events will each feature more than a dozen sessions and speakers, 40+ exhibitors, multiple workshops, local celebrities, and limitless networking and career-advancing moments.
ATEN will provide static demos of its award-winning VE8950 – 4K HDMI over IP Extender. Engineered to meet the demands of large scale, multi-display, 4K signal transmission, the solution is easy to set up and operate. It is ideal for a wide range of environments, such as trade shows, airports, university campuses, conference centers, and shopping centers, and delivers visually lossless 4K AV signals with low latency over long distance via a local network of standard gigabit network switch.
Additionally, ATEN will provide static demos of its 4K HDMI over IP Transmitter, HDMI Matrix Switch with Scaler, control system and HDMI HDBaseT extender solutions, and video matrix, extender, splitter, and switch and converter with 4K solutions.
Attendees will also be privy to a sneak peek of ATEN’s soon-to-be announced presentation matrix switch, with Seamless Switch™ technology and multi-format inputs and outputs – ideal for any meeting room environment.
A premier manufacturer of HDBaseT products, ATEN will offer HDBaseT Certification at both E4 events. A connectivity standard for whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content, the HDBaseT Certification course is targeted at both the beginner and expert installer, and includes technology principles, installation dos and don’ts, best practices, product certification and interoperability, and a hands-on tutorial and demonstration. The course’s instructor is YT Liang, an ATEN Technology, Inc. product manager.
“Our HDBaseT training course helps educate attending integrators about best practices when building reliable HDBaseT installations successfully. Being able to more easily determine the interoperability of different HDBaseT products will help avoid additional costs and project delays due to incompatibility. Course attendees can expect to obtain a deeper understanding about HDBaseT technology, its application, and hands-on practice of each of the 5Play™ (USB, AV, Ethernet, control, and power),” said Liang.
“Boston is always one of our most exciting and productive stops on the E4 tour as there is so much energy and strong participation from resellers and integrators in this region,” explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing & communications, Almo Corporation. “We are pleased to add Jim Nista, senior director of content creation services to our education speaking team following Almo’s recent acquisition of Insteo. And we look forward to having local NFL celebrity Deion Branch in the house inspiring our attendees. 2018 continues to be Almo Pro A/V’s year to excel. The E4 program is one of many ways we are aligning with our manufacturers and channel partners on this one-way path toward success, growth and expansion.”
