Since Atmosphere was first launched in July 2020, it has attracted some significant attention including being selected as SCN 2020 Product of the Year and being recognized with an NSCA EPI Award for Best Technology Platform.
The objectives of the 2.0 firmware update have been prioritized from every piece of feedback received from customers and include some substantial enhancements and additional capabilities of an Atmosphere system. There are also other improvements in version 2.0, but these are the top 5 requested features.
Atmosphere can now create output zones that are either Mono (1 output), Mono + Sub (2 outputs), Stereo (2 outputs), or Stereo + Sub (3 outputs) as well as create input sources as either Mono (1 input) or Stereo (2 inputs). Stereo audio is important in venues where audio and video are a focal point such as a sports bar with a primary video screen, nightclub, a Sportsbook in a casino, or anywhere mixed media content is a primary form of entertainment.
For hotel ballrooms, bars, outdoor patios, and spaces/zones where live sound is used or that require enhanced low end audio production.
A feature designed for K-12 schools and manufacturing/warehouse facilities, Atmosphere’s Bell Scheduler offers an intuitive way to create multiple schedules (block scheduling, weekends, half days, admin days, summer school, shift changes, etc…) and the flexibility to accommodate exceptions (2hr delay, early dismissal, etc...)
A great feature for hotel banquet rooms, classrooms, meeting rooms, and fitness centers where separate rooms can be combined by removing airwalls or temporary dividers, room combine offers the flexibility to treat multiple zones (rooms) as a single group. For example, if a hotel had 3 ballrooms divided by air walls that were each programmed as their own zone, they could be combined (physically by removing airwalls) when they need more space for larger events. When an air wall between two or more adjacent ballrooms is opened to create a larger ballroom, these rooms (zones) can also be combined as a group within Atmosphere’s UI to share the same source, volume control, etc…
Integrators and end users can take comfort in knowing if an Atmosphere accessory is damaged in anyway, simply plugging in a new unit will have them back up and running quickly without any additional programming. Simply plug the ethernet cable into the new accessory and the Atmosphere AZM processor will automatically reinstall the same programming the damaged accessory had.
