July 15, 2021 - Sydney, Australia: ATEN ANZ the leading provider of AV/IT connectivity and management solutions, announced its cooperation with Olympus Corporation, a renowned Japanese manufacturer of optics and reprography equipment established in 1919. This cooperation integrates products from both parties to increase videoscope functionality for higher flexibility and safer, more efficient operations.
Olympus recently developed the IPLEX GAir videoscope for use in pipe inspection applications in industrial locations such as petroleum and power plants. Since there are only a limited number of engineers who can inspect these infrastructure facilities, Olympus needed a reliable method for inspecting remotely. Combining the Red Dot Design Award Winning VE8950 4K HDMI over IP Extender with the IPLEX GAir videoscope allows the latter to be remotely operated and transmit video up to 4K with very little delay or degradation up to 100 meters.
“Our VE8950 can be easily installed without complicated IP setup, even for those with little IT training, therefore reducing the hurdles for on-site installation. What’s more, ATEN’s worldwide operations and domestic support ensure that support can be provided as timely as possible, so that’s why this is the most suitable match for the IPLEX GAir videoscope,” said Tim Hill, ATEN ANZ’s Managing Director.
The VE8950 provides long-range over-IP video transmission to send images from the industrial videoscope to remote operators.
Key features of the VE8950 4K HDMI over IP Extender includes:
  • Delivers visually lossless high-quality video up to 4K@30Hz 4:4:4
  • Effortless switching via top panel pushbuttons
  • Supports USB 2.0 to allow for connection of USB peripheral devices
  • EDID Expert™ applies appropriate EDID mode for smooth video display
  • Offers multi-functionality in extender, splitter, matrix switch, video wall, and daisy chain applications
