NOTE: The VSG software gateways are available on a limited basis. The updated product is the AT-VGW-SW gateway, delivering up to 20 rooms of AV system control, plus several new features including room scheduling and Velocity Cloud monitoring.
The Atlona AT-VSG-250, AT-VSG-2500, and AT-VSG-5000 Velocity Soft Control Gateways are software licenses for the Atlona Velocity Control System that enable AV control processing on standard IT server infrastructure provisioned by the integrator or end user. They are capable of serving up to 250, 2,500, or 5,000 simultaneous IP device connections for large-scale integration of AV control systems spanning a facility, building, campus, or enterprise. The software can be hosted on a dedicated virtual machine. The Velocity Soft Control Gateway also features an innovative network-based system architecture that allows full redundancy and failover with two VSG-250, VSG-2500, or VSG-5000 instances in operation, maximizing AV control system reliability while preventing downtime in mission-critical applications. It supports industry-standard, secure data communications, and can run within a private, dedicated AV device network.
