“Scalability and multiple points-of-control were two key challenges in our customer’s command center application. Only Velocity from Atlona would allow us to economically place a point of control at every operator’s terminal to control the video system.”

Take a Closer Look
Save time with easy configuration.
Conﬁgure control systems in minutes with simple, intuitive navigation and menu selections, just like a mobile or web app. Never before have integrators been able to deploy professional AV control systems so efficiently.
Velocity delivers true AV control agility.
Need to modify, update, or improve your control system? In a few mouse clicks, make all the changes and the system automatically pushes the settings to the devices – no compiling or uploading necessary.
Give customers peace of mind with a rock-solid system.
Velocity includes a unique IP system architecture with fully redundant processors and built-in disaster recovery. Should a problem arise in one processor, your control system will recover by itself and keep running with no downtime, and no need for any intervention.
Affordable scalability to grow with your customers.
Velocity is fully scalable from the smallest conference room to the largest facility, without extensive reprogramming, or the need for numerous control processors. Velocity’s software control processor can be hosted on nearly any IT server, making it easy and affordable to scale up to a campus or enterprise.
Ready for large-scale AV control integration.
Create specific role-based accounts for system designers, installers, technicians, system operators, and more. This is ideal for large AV control system projects requiring a full team of staff members, as well as dedicated personnel for after-sale support and managed services.
Comprehensive support for third-party AV products.
The Velocity Control System can be integrated with a wide range of sources, displays, DSPs, videoconferencing systems, and many other types of AV equipment. Please refer to this comprehensive database of supported third-party products for detailed information. Devices in the database are ready for immediate integration into a Velocity Control System with just a few mouse clicks.
Get started with Velocity in no time.
Integrators can deploy Velocity after just a short online training course, with no need to attend lengthy classes, earn certifications, or hire expert programmers. To get started, simply click here.
Dive Deeper Into the Essentials
Easy to Use
Control system configuration is fast and highly intuitive with the familiar interactions, flow, and visual elements of a web or mobile application. No programming skills or extensive training are necessary. To get started with Velocity, all it takes is an online orientation session.
Velocity delivers the agility that enables system deployment in a fraction of the time for traditional control platforms. This agility also allows integrators to expedite functional or user interface adjustments during commissioning, and respond promptly to client requests for system modifications.
A single Velocity Control Gateway appliance can serve up to 250 IP device connections at once. The gateway can also be hosted in an IT data center, with licensing available for up to 5,000 connections to serve an enterprise. This expandability is unmatched by traditional control processors, both in scale and cost.
Velocity features an IP-based system architecture that inherently allows full redundancy and system failover. This keeps AV control running continuously in all rooms, preventing user frustration that often leads to meeting, class, or event cancellation.
Velocity Cloud provides a unified platform for creating and managing AV control projects by client, client sites, and specific locations such as rooms. Access is available anywhere worldwide through a standard web browser, so you can remotely provide your own personalized service. This is much easier than going on-site to service an installation.
Bring Your Own Device – BYOD
Atlona offers easy, flexible, and affordable options for Velocity Touch Panels as well as BYOD integration with tablets, smartphones, and other devices. There are no complicated licensing schemes or usage restrictions. The intuitive web-based GUIs are automatically generated during system configuration.
Monitoring and Alerts
Velocity Cloud features continuous system monitoring, as well as real-time event notifications and alerts. For other control systems, such features are often available only with an asset management platform requiring separate purchase, installation, and training.
Velocity Cloud includes analytics and data reporting capabilities that enable deep insight into which rooms and equipment are most frequently accessed. This is valuable in helping integrators and technology managers make informed decisions about when, where, and how to expand.
The Velocity Control System offers a cost of ownership far lower than competitive offerings in the AV industry. Significant savings will be realized in terms of equipment costs, free online training, fast system configuration, high device control capacity, and more.
Velocity supports secure data communications between the Velocity Control Gateway, Velocity Cloud, Velocity Touch Panels, and web clients through HTTP/2, HTTPS, and WebSockets with TLS and AES-128 encryption. Additionally, Velocity can operate over a dedicated AV LAN, isolated from the facility or corporate network.
