Atlona and Symetrix team up to simplify A/V over IP

Atlona and Symetrix team up to simplify A/V over IPAtlona and Symetrix have formed a strategic partnership to ‘accelerate integration, and tighten interoperability, across the A/V over IP ecosystem’. The overall aim is to simplify the process of designing and deploying networked systems to and from a digital signal processor (DSP) using intelligent on-off ramps for audio, video, and peripherals such as USB signals, that are easy to configure, control and manage.

‘As the DSP is the central part of most A/V systems, Symetrix is continually seeking ways to help our integration partners build the most cost-effective and flexible systems possible,’ commented Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. ‘As our industry moves toward everything over IP, we’re committed to addressing the new time-consuming challenges our customers face in building out a networked architecture. Our collaboration with Atlona simplifies the programming and control of these systems, and help us build stronger IP bridges and on/off ramps for audio, video and USB.’

The partnership benefits from the common architectures that both companies share, such as Dante audio support, and the fact that their product catalogues complement each other rather than overlap.

‘Working together with Symetrix, we have developed a clear problem-solving solution for systems integrators that have found it time-consuming and difficult to program and control disparate components of a broader A/V over IP ecosystem,’ stated David Shamir, director of product management at Atlona. ‘Our collaboration will remove the mystery behind the design and integration of an interoperable networked system, and clearly communicate how to leverage the individual strength of each component outward from the DSP.’
