ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, announced today that a brand of The Channel Company, recognized ATEN as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. ATEN’s 4K HDMI over IP Extender took top honors in the Display LCD/Signage/Projection/GPU category.
ATEN’s “VE8950” 4K HDMI over IP Extender solution, consisting of a Receiver (VE8950R) and Transmitter (VE8950T), is an effective, easy-to-use, and economical digital signage solution. It is ideal for large-scale deployments, covering hundreds of meters that require multi-display and 4K signal transmission, such as tradeshows, airports, hotel facilities, university campuses, conferences centers, and shopping centers.
Delivering visually lossless 4K AV signals with low latency over long distance via a local network of standard gigabit network switches, it is the ultimate solution for integrators needing to deliver video content to multiple displays or a video wall, with the flexibility to add displays or more video content in the future.
The VE8950 was also awarded a Red Dot Award, one of the world’s largest design competitions, for most innovative product design earlier this year.
“ATEN’s 4KHDMI over IP Extender solution is easy to implement and configure, improving clarity and simplifying build outs of large-scale displays and video walls,” said YT Liang, product manager, ATEN Technology, Inc. “We’re honored to be recognized as a tech innovator, as it validates ATEN’s ability to provide integrators with easy-to-use solutions that enhance and improve the user experience.”
