Legrand | AV Announces New Family of 24/7 Control Room Consoles from LundHalsey

Posted by Press Release on Jul 8, 2020

FAIRFIELD, N.J. — July 7, 2020 — Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, today announced the new LundHalsey Visionline 24/7 control room consoles. Visionline is the latest console family directly available from Legrand | AV and manufactured by solutions partner LundHalsey, the U.K.-based market leader in the design, manufacture, and installation of control room furniture solutions. Visionline features the same stylish, ergonomic design and durability introduced in LundHalsey's premier Kontrol family, but in a smaller footprint and in straight, concave, and convex options to fit a control room of any size.
"No two control rooms are exactly alike in size, function, or setup," said Paul Dolynchuk, director, product management at Legrand | AV. "The new compact, modular Visionline console provides greater design flexibility for organizations who need customized multi-console configuration options in width, stand-alone, back to back, concave, or convex arrangements. We're excited to offer this new console directly from Legrand | AV."

The Visionline family includes two models: Visionline Air sit/stand console and Visionline fixed height 24/7 control room console. Visionline Air is a human-centered console designed to provide a sit/stand environment that optimizes operator well-being and comfort with an adjustable height between 26"- 47". The work surface can be moved at the touch of a button or remotely via the mobile app. The Visionline fixed-height console is the perfect solution for any modern 24/7 control room. Designed to ISO 11064, the international ergonomic standard for control room design, the fixed-height model is supported by a robust frame providing perfect cable management, integration for active equipment, and class-leading industrial design.

Stylish and ergonomically designed, both models feature a modular steel bay system architecture and a .5-inch-thick compact laminate work surface with unmatched durability, manufacturability, and integrated cable management to keep cables neat and connections secure. Every console can be configured with single or side-by-side articulating monitor arm options that fully adjust to any user height and reach as well as with a range of accessories, including operated status control LEDs, corner LEDs, universal PDU, wireless charger, touch-sensitive desktop PDU, and a dimmable LED task light.

Customers will also receive complimentary custom design services to achieve the perfect solution for any control space. A dedicated project manager at Middle Atlantic will work with customers throughout the project, from design, to quote, to shipment. Services will include concept drawings and high-quality 3D renderings for an accurate vision of what the finished product will look like in the environment.

Cobalt Iron Helps Companies 'Make the Switch Without the Risk' to Enable Remote Backup

Posted by Press Release on Apr 7, 2020

LAWRENCE, Kan. — April 7, 2020 — Cobalt Iron Inc. today announced the "Make the Switch Without the Risk" program for backup professionals working from home and other remote locations. The special promotion extends Cobalt Iron's Compass™ enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) data protection solution to new customers for the same price they're currently paying for service and support contracts on their existing backup systems, with no payments or interest in 2020.

"A wide range of enterprises have already been advancing toward a more remote work culture as teams have become more globalized. But now, with the coronavirus pandemic, many companies are scrambling to make the transition to remote backup operations in a highly compressed time frame," said Andy Hurt, chief marketing officer, Cobalt Iron. "In the face of the largest global crisis since World War II, the last thing companies should have to worry about is effective backup deployment, operation, administration, and protection of data from cyber threats."

He added: "By allowing organizations to modernize their backup infrastructure for a nominal investment, this promotion will help them to keep data secure and ensure business continuity — even when administrators can't be physically present at the data center. Migrating to Compass can bring them capex reductions of up to 50% and opex savings up to 90%. And, they'll reap the benefits of near-autonomous operations, industry-leading cyber security, ransomware protection, and support for legacy and modern workloads."

The Make the Switch Without the Risk program enables enterprises to migrate to Compass with zero incremental increase in software costs, and no payment or interest in 2020, and it also offers deep discounts on optimized hardware and multiple financing options. Cobalt Iron will provide remote deployment, setup, and configuration. The offer is available through members of Cobalt Iron's IronClad Partner Advantage program.

"It's easy to monitor and manage backups from any location using Compass' web-based user interface. But in addition to remote access, there are plenty of other compelling reasons to migrate to Compass under this program," said Hurt. "For no more than their current support and maintenance costs, organizations can upgrade to a backup solution that supports private, hybrid, and public cloud deployments. And, rather than leave security and ransomware protection as an afterthought or add-on, we've woven the industry's most advanced cyber security measures into the fabric of Compass."
