– AMX® announced today that it has acquired Atrium Group Developments Ltd., a UK-based software company providing video content management systems. As part of this acquisition, AMX also launched Atrium's seventh-generation IPTV solution. Re-branded Vision2 (pronounced Vision Two), the solution is a modular, fully-integrated video capture, management and broadcast system for delivering live, on-demand and/or scheduled video. AMX is demonstrating Vision2 in booth C2902 at InfoComm 2008, being held June 18 – 20 in Las Vegas.
"The Atrium team brings to AMX extensive expertise in video capture, management and distribution solutions, as well as an innovative, high-quality product offering that has been repeatedly proven over time. For example, one Fortune 500 customer is using the product to deliver video to more than 3,000 end points, while a government customer has successfully integrated the solution into an information analysis tool," said Rashid Skaf, AMX president and CEO. "With the addition of Vision2 to our product line, AMX can now provide our customers with more than just the hardware need to build a video distribution solution. By adding content management software to our portfolio, we are simplifying both the deployment and utilization of video throughout any organization."
"I speak on behalf of the entire Atrium team when I say that we are absolutely thrilled to join the AMX family," said Jonathan Sears-Corfield, Atrium CEO. "With access to AMX's sales and distribution channel, as well as its marketing organization, we will now be able to deploy our solution to organizations throughout the world - a dream I have personally had for nearly two decades."
Vision2 was developed by a team of broadcast engineers eighteen years ago, and it has been successfully deployed by a variety of high-profile customers in nearly every major vertical market. It is designed for commercial and residential properties needing a comprehensive, yet simple-to-use method for delivering video over IP.
Vision2 can capture, store, retrieve and distribute live and stored content via the Internet or an intranet. It is a complete video communications infrastructure that takes full advantage of: the decreasing cost associated with delivering content over category cable; the increasing popularity of the Internet; and the skyrocketing number of PCs both at work and home.
No matter how large or small, every Vision2 solution begins with the V2 Master - the content management engine that provides access to, and control of, the system. The solution is then built to meet the specific video needs of each application by mixing and matching the following five modules:
The Vision2 solution can be used in all of the vertical markets targeted by AMX. Application examples include:
