Full control over a yacht’s digital infrastructure is the key to achieving that feeling of luxury that makes the difference, and pleases customers. Here comes ATEN: ease of control, no loss of quality and safety are the keywords of the variety of products that the brand offers for the world of luxury yachts.
Sailing aboard a luxury yacht does not simply mean making a journey: it means indulging in an all-round, complete and enveloping experience. Imagine the dining room full of people enjoying a good dinner, while the sun sets over the expanse of the “wine-colored” Homeric sea and the lights, inside, dim slightly. The wall-mounted TV goes from a lively atmosphere to a more participatory and welcoming feeling. The music begins to softly play through the speakers and the sliding roof opens, offering guests a spectacular view of the darkening sky… Here, these are just some of the sensations that modern technology applied to yacht building can offer.
And ATEN is at the forefront, with solutions that allow customers not to even think about how to do this. By relying on an ATEN system, the yacht “comes to life” and the remarkable experience of navigation and the maritime landscape, is enriched thanks to the contribution of technology.
For example, the VM3909H matrix switch can deliver 4K quality video to nine different displays located where you want it. Just to give an idea, we could hypothesize a four-screen video wall in the common lounge, a TV in all cabins as well as one on deck and one in the dining room. And to realize this A/V distribution, a Cat 5e/6/6a cable is sufficient, which is also able to power the ATEN VE816R receivers, offering easy and space-saving wiring management, without unpleasant clutter. A further advantage of an articulated display system is the ease of creating digital signage and entertainment that improve the saliling experience.
In short, the commander on board is ATEN: the control system, which incorporates the VK2100 control box, the VK6000 configurator and the dedicated app, connects all the hardware devices and creates an easy and safe management of all the zones, with the possibility of diversification and customization. A single device, via the convenient interface of a tablet or smartphone, allows you to control the curtains, lights, air conditioning, music and other elements. The ATEN Control System app is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows, thus offering various options for system configuration.
This ATEN-signed control system perfectly applies also to meeting rooms, conference centers, university classrooms or any environment that requires central and mobile control of various hardware devices. Application to yachts is a natural development of the system, which is well suited to manage the layered and luxurious environments of the boat. Moreover, for those who do not like to use their smartphone, the VK330 solution is also available, a 10.1” touch panel that is pre-installed with the ATEN Control System app. The ATEN control system can be configured via viewer profiles that provide a custom GUI for controlling specific hardware devices. The use of any profile is protected, of course, with password authentication.
All that remains is to set sail!
