With the company’s 15th anniversary approaching, Atlona continues to accelerate from its humble beginnings to an enterprise solutions focused supplier for connected spaces. The trajectory of Atlona as a company aligns with the industry shift from legacy connectivity toward networked AV systems.
From the Silicon Valley-based company’s humble beginnings as a supplier of simple wired, residential AV solutions, Atlona has entered a prolific phase of innovation as a market leader across wireless and network-based AV distribution and control for commercial and residential markets. This period of evolution comes as the company celebrates its 15th anniversary.
“We want to provide everything between source and display for system integrators, and offer the strongest support, quality and education programmes in the industry,” said Ilya Khayn, Atlona Co-Founder and CEO. “When we began in 2003, we never dreamed of providing the global market with advanced, comprehensive AV solutions. Throughout these 15 years though, it has always been our mission to solve challenges for our customers.”
The seismic shift in Atlona’s focus took shape over just a few years as exemplified by Atlona’s participation at the Integrated Systems Europe exhibition:
- ISE 2015: 11 new 4K/UHD products launched. Nearly two dozen 4K/UHD products were launched in 2015, earning Atlona the reputation as an industry innovator
- ISE 2016: The HDVS-300 introduced, simplifying multi-source presentations in WebEx®-style meetings; 2016 would also see Atlona address AV over IP signal distribution with its enterprise-level OmniStream™ family
- ISE 2017: Innovation continued with the SW-510W wireless BYOD switcher and Velocity™ networked-based AV control
ISE remains a launchpad for Atlona’s most significant product innovations. At the 2018 event Atlona will introduce all-new audio, scaling, and extender solutions as the company reaches a significant milestone for positioning and innovation.
Over the years, demand has significantly grown as Atlona shifted its focus from simple distribution between sources and destinations to entire connected spaces, with enterprise-level clients such as Microsoft Germany, Hong Kong University, and U.S. insurance giant USI serving as recent examples. To address that growth, Atlona expanded with offices in Switzerland and Asia to get closer to its customers with follow-the-sun support and new distribution partners to support this growth.
“Our recent development in AVoIP, control, and wireless collaboration has inched us closer to that complete solution-oriented approach that our partners crave, with a focus on complete user experiences, simplicity and usability both during and after installation,” said Ronni Guggenheim, Atlona’s General Manager.
“Our residential partners are more aggressively moving into light commercial projects with these new innovations, and our commercial AV partners are landing broader enterprise-based projects in corporate, education and other verticals. We see an incredible global opportunity as this industry continues to grow, and will continue to introduce disruptive technologies and new opportunities to help integrators expand their service offerings.”
