Atlona Participating in Almo Professional A/V's Fall E4 AV Tour - September 15, 2017

Company to offer OmniStream certification courses and showcase latest innovations in AV over IP, networked control, soft codec conferencing and BYOD connectivity

SAN JOSE, Calif., September 15, 2017 – AV collaboration and control leader Atlona is joining Almo Professional A/V — one of North America’s largest and most advanced commercial audio-visual distributors — to give resellers, integrators and consultants the opportunity to discover their own “Lightbulb Moment” during the award-winning E4 AV Tour, coming to New York on September 19 and Irvine, California on October 3.

Atlona will offer AVoIP Sales Certification courses at the E4 events in both cities, providing attendees an outstanding opportunity to learn about networked AV systems, the award-winning OmniStream AV-over-IP platform, and the essential principles of data networking. Industry certified and accredited by InfoComm, the educational sessions will give participants the credibility, knowledge, and confidence to inform customers on the ideal networked AV system solutions for their requirements.

Atlona’s E4 AV tour presence will also include demonstrations of OmniStream products, the game-changing Velocity cloud-based control system, and the BYOD-friendly AT-UHD-SW-510W wired and wireless switcher.

The E4 AV tour travels to cities around the country to provide product, technical and business training to thousands of resellers and installers while creating the ideal forum for professional networking. Named the CI BEST Training, Consulting/Business Service for the fourth year in a row, and a recipient of the SCN 2017 Stellar Service Award, the E4 program offers AV professionals a full day of educational sessions worth InfoComm CTS Renewal Units (RUs) as well as exclusive access to the newest AV products and services.

"Atlona has an important role at our E4 events as a top provider of wired and wireless AV switching and distribution products, plus IP-based solutions such as the new Velocity cloud-based control system, being shown at an E4 event for the first time next week, and the OmniStream AV over IP distribution family," said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V.  "We look forward to having the Atlona team on the tour not only as an exhibitor but also to offer our New York-area and southern California attendees the valuable opportunity to receive AVoIP sales certification training."

“We look forward to taking part in these latest stops on the highly-respected E4 AV Tour,” said Amelia Vrabel, National Sales Manager, Commercial at Atlona. “Disruptive trends such as AV over IP, networked control, soft codec conferencing and BYOD connectivity are front-of-mind for resellers and integrators today, and E4 gives us an ideal opportunity to engage attendees in insightful discussions about these topics while highlighting how our latest solutions address them.”
