KB01483 - Atlona AMS 2.0 macOS Installation Guide

The Atlona Management System (AMS) is a free, powerful software resource for select Atlona IP-controllable products in commercial, educational, government and residential environments. It integrates product configuration, management, and updates to reduce installation time and enable remote support. Comprehensive features include: automatic search and detection of Atlona products; device configuration in single or multiple sites; configuration backup, automatic or user-triggered firmware upgrades, and an intuitive graphical user interface. AMS is based on a distributed architecture where multiple installed AV devices can be managed from a single server. Using the simple, web browser-based user interface, the operator can drill-down from a high-level network view to an individual device. The operator can choose to manage systems either locally (LAN) or from a remote location (WAN).
