Audiovisual pros share feedback on Atmosphere
PHOENIX, AZ – Commercial AV integrators recognize the complexities traditionally involved when configuring and installing digital audio systems. Breaking that tradition is AtlasIED with the recent launch of its Atmosphere™ digital audio platform, and integrators nationwide are eager to start deploying it in a wide range of commercial environments.
“The flexibility and enterprise-class options that Atmosphere™ offers sets it apart from other offerings in its class,” remarks Brad Madison of Splendid Technology Services, LLC, Plano, Texas. “It’s the perfect self-contained system for any AV design firm that wants a feature-rich solution in a stand-alone environment.” Cliff Stromeyer of Phoenix-based integration firm Trox, adds, “At last, a product line that removes the complexity of configuration yet maintains ample flexibility in designing a digital audio system for different types of venues.”
AtlasIED announces the immediate availability of the first components comprising the innovative new ecosystem. Engineered to enable the utilization of touchless control, automation, and artificial intelligence, Atmosphere’s™ combination of digital audio processors, amplifiers, graphical user interfaces, programming software, and controls have been designed to work seamlessly together to minimize training time and installation, configuration, and programming headaches for AV integrators, and reduce the learning curve for end-users.
“We’re very excited about what Atmosphere™ can help us accomplish,” says Mike Harpster of Capital Electric Wire & Cable, New Berlin, Wisconsin. “This platform enables us to help our customers deliver rich audio content to workplaces like never before. The simplicity and capabilities that have been engineered into Atmosphere™ make it a major game-changer for our clients. With the many plug-and-play wall-plate controls, getting a space up and sounding great is easier than ever before.” Sam Greco of Audio Supply, Inc., in Mundelein, Illinois, continues, “Atmosphere™ is a serious winner. It’s incredibly well-thought-out, looks simple to program, and provides a very clean and easy-to-understand, which means less time for us to implement and easier for the end-user to control.”
This ease of configuration, installation, and operation combines with the modularity, scalability, versatility, and quality performance to support the audio needs of a wide range of commercial applications, including restaurants, bars, hotels, school campuses, houses of worship, retail establishments, and other commercial environments.
“Now that Atmosphere™ is shipping, integrators can take full advantage of the numerous benefits afforded by this innovative digital audio solution in a wide range of commercial applications, from the smallest cocktail lounge to the largest luxury hotel,” says John Ivey, president at AtlasIED. “Under development for two years, the platform sets a new standard for digital audio systems, positions AtlasIED as a leader in the digital audio industry, and creates exciting business opportunities for technology integrators.”
Shipping now are two varieties of digital signal processors (6-input/4-output AZM4 and 10-input/8-output AZM8; two amplifiers (400-watt AZA404 and 800-watt AZA804); six different plug-and-play accessories, including wall-mounted audio controllers (single- and multi-zone options); remote audio inputs (RCA, Bluetooth, and XLR sources); and an ambient noise sensor. As many as 16 accessories can be daisy-chained to the AZM4 and the AZM8. Plus, the entire Atmosphere™ lineup has been engineered to integrate with AtlasIED loudspeakers; integrators can use the preloaded EQ files in an Atmosphere™ DSP to easily tune the speakers for the specific application and environment. Boasting a clean, modern, industrial design, Atmosphere™ complements the aesthetic of most commercial environments.
“AtlasIED’s Atmosphere™ is a well-thought-out product offering a multitude of features with a simplified approach. Its installation makes for an easy, straightforward approach and customer experience—very easy to sell,” remarks Mark Popkowski of Modern System Concepts, Cypress, Texas. Shane Riley of Haverford Systems, Downingtown, Pennsylvania, continues, “Atmosphere™ has a simple yet sophisticated design and its easy-to-use configuration interface and variety of accessories makes it a great solution for our system designs.”
AtlasIED will continue to add products to the lineup in strategically planned phased releases. AV integrators interested in learning more about the Atmosphere digital audio platform can request a demo at www.atlasied.com/form/atmosphere-demo-request.
