ATEN Technology, Inc., a specialist in KVM and pro AV connectivity systems, has introduced its ATEN VE8950/VE8900 Control App, an iOS and Android -compatible mobile app that enables mobile control of ATEN’s VE8950 and VE8900 4K HDMI-over-IP Extenders.

The app is designed to help users conveniently switch sources/displays and apply and reschedule profiles for their ATEN AV-over-IP video extenders.

Featuring an easy-to-use, intuitive interface, ATEN’s Control App provides direct access to the company's VE Manager, which enables "anytime, anywhere" preview, monitoring and control functions of a user’s video sources. Users can track the latest display schedule and system updates, managing their networked AV system more effortlessly than before.

Per the manufacturer, key features of the app include:

Simple Setup and Login – Auto scan the network for devices and tap on any transmitter or receiver to log in.

Real-Time Device Monitoring – Check the status of receivers and digital signage content remotely. Preview video sources and quickly edit receiver inputs or adjust video wall layouts with the GUI.

Instant Switching and Control – Switch video sources instantly by simply selecting the transmitter source and the target receiver via a mobile device. Users can also switch a video source to multiple receivers at once.

Calendar-Based Scheduling – Check and revise the display schedule on-the-go to save time, related costs and streamline daily operations.

“Our Red Dot Design Award winning VE8950, along with the VE8900, provide an effective, easy-to-use and economical digital signage solution with limitless scalability, flexibility and daisy-chaining options,” says YT Liang, senior product manager, ATEN Technology, Inc.

Liang continues, "With no complicated IP setup, additional server PCs or software needed, these solutions are perfectly designed to address the challenges that system integrators encounter while implementing AV over IP.
