ATEN Collaborates with Valens Semiconductor to Power Immersive Exhibition and Projection Mapping Experiences Leveraging Valens’ HDBaseT(TM) Technology

ATEN International, the leading provider of KVM and AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, has collaborated with Valens Semiconductor, a premier provider of high-speed connectivity solutions for the audiovisual and automotive markets, to create multiple immersive exhibitions displayed around the world. Using Valens Semiconductor’s chipsets implementing HDBaseT technology, ATEN’s Professional Audiovisual (ProAV) equipment allows video players, extenders, and projectors to connect and communicate with each other seamlessly and reliably, creating the perfect immersive experience to transport guests into renowned paintings and back to the Jurassic Period.

The exhibition managers wanted to create three 360-degree immersive rooms of floor-to-ceiling walls with projected video and audio that would surround guests with animation and sound for exhibits presenting renowned artists including Van Gogh and Monet, or bringing to life Jurassic dinosaurs. The setup would also require two separate control rooms to control the splitting and extending of the necessary Pro AV feeds. In addition, the installation needed to be simple enough to set up and use for exhibition managers to control, as well as easily making it a transportable exhibit, as the exhibition travels from city to city. ATEN’s VE811T high-quality video and audio HDMI and HDBaseT distribution solution enabled the high-resolution transmission, at zero-latency, required for the ultimate immersive exhibit. The reliability of the solution allowed for a vivid and dynamic experience and for fully remote operations with no need for onsite support.
