ATEN’s VM Seamless Switch Series Wins Red Dot Award 2015

ATEN's VM Seamless Switch Series received the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2015 for its intuitive and user-friendly interface design.

Taipei, Taiwan (August 11, 2015) - ATEN International, the world-leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity and management solutions, has won the prestigious Red Dot Award 2015 for the interface design of its Video Matrix (VM) Seamless Switch Series. The VM Seamless Switch Series proved its design prowess by being acknowledged as one of the winners of the most sought after product design competition during its 60th anniversary year.

Designed with the user in mind, the VM Seamless Switch Series is a pro A/V solution for video wall and digital signage applications. Through its user-friendly interface, the series reduces the complexity associated with video wall configurations, digital signage setups, and their control. Equipped with ATEN's unique Scalers and seamless switch engines, the VM Seamless Switch Series delivers quick and precise video without delays.

Intuitive Interface — What you see is what you get!
When creating a video wall for a digital signage application, it's difficult to imagine the complex relationship between the configuration, setup, and the final display. With the VM Seamless Switch Series, the system integrator is provided with an interface which mirrors the video wall's look and feel. With this, they are able to arrange the simulation on-screen to match the physical setup conditions. This includes: the display layout, bezel dimensions, input source to output connections, and location.

Dashboard for Non-IT Users — Simple interface
The VM Seamless Switch Series also has a custom-designed user-friendly virtual dashboard for non-IT users. These users can easily control the video wall remotely with simple click-and-go actions from a laptop, iPad, or tablet. Up to 32 connection profiles can be created and scheduled for display in advance, or switched in real-time, making them perfect for all video wall and digital signage switching scenarios.

VM Seamless Switch Products
The VM Seamless Switch Series includes four models that feature the award-winning user interface: the VM5808H, VM5404H, VM1600, and VM6404H. These models route from 4 to 16 video sources to 4 to 16 video displays. The VM6404H not only features the Red Dot Award winning interface but is also the industry's first True 4K True Seamless Switch.
