SyncPro announced that Valens, the HDBaseT technology team, has expanded its engagement with SyncPro’s CloudOS platform. According to the companies, this partnership should accelerate the integration of HDBaseT AV and IT management by allowing remote deployment and monitoring for any HDBaseT device.
SyncPro’s cloud platform enables IT teams and Managed Service Providers (MSP) to remotely configure, monitor and maintain audio-video, unified collaboration and digital signage products. With SyncPro’s CloudOS support, HDBaseT equipment manufacturers can add advanced cloud-based features and remote managed services for their product lines– which has gained importance due to accessibility issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Added capabilities include proactive monitoring capabilities, features licensing, firmware updates, remote configuration and more. This will allow system integrators and installers to deploy and service their systems at a lower cost and in shorter time.
Valens recently began using CloudOS to allow HDBaseT chipsets to connect to an integrated cloud, strengthening AV and IT convergence for manufacturers, integrators and end users. Valens has now added new capabilities to CloudOS, including the option to monitor and manage its evaluation kits to better support HDBaseT product development.
Valens will offer firmware updates, provisioning services and advanced diagnostics capabilities, providing added value for product developers that use the Valens Stello product family. This starts with the VS3000, the first HDBaseT chipset to support long-distance distribution of uncompressed 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) video (HDMI 2.0) over a single category cable.
