Atlona Upgrades Velocity with Version 1.5

Atlona today unveiled a new software upgrade for the company’s Velocity IP-based AV control and management platform. In version 1.5 integrators and designers can create custom GUI pages from scratch for Atlona’s 5.5″ AT-VTP-550 and 8″ AT-VTP-800 Velocity touch panels, as well as mobile devices and desktop browsers. The new GUI creation tool allows drag-and-drop placement of buttons, icons, text labels, audio slider controls and images through a mouse or touchscreen interactions.

Buttons, labels and icons can be configured to trigger specific AV device functions or pre-programmed macros when touched or for navigation between additional custom GUI pages. Variables can be assigned to interface elements, enabling dynamic interactions such as visual status updates whenever specified functions — for example, AV source selection — are triggered. AV system control events including macros, device commands and variable states can also be initiated in sequence from the GUI based on conditional logic (including “if,” “then” and “else” branching), empowering interface creators to support sophisticated control scenarios.

Velocity 1.5 will make its public debut at next week’s ISE 2019 show in Amsterdam in stand 5-U120. Here are the details we know so far.
