Architectural LED lighting manufacturer Anolis and real-time visual processing technology provider ArKaos have announced a collaboration which will see the two brands team up on several product developments.
Anolis’s LED lighting, pixel-based fixtures and other hardware will feature ArKaos’ cloud-based communications protocol An-Ki, which enables remote control of digital content projected on LED mappable surfaces from anywhere in the world.
The deal will also involve “a fluid bi-directional commercial relationship” between the two companies, where ArKaos products will be distributed by Anolis, and Anolis fixtures will share sales resources with ArKaos.
ArKaos’ MD Agnes Wojewoda comments: “This will add huge value to installation designers working in all fields. It offers the possibility of fully flexible and stable control which will be added to future Anolis products, although the protocol will work with any LED fixture.”
She adds: “We are all looking forward to this combination of cutting-edge technologies – we will be able to offer faster, more flexible and even more versatile products and outstanding after-sales and client support.”
Anolis MD, Tim Van den Eede, says: “We are hugely excited to be the first brand to team up with ArKaos on this unique project alliance. As two extremely strong and forward-looking European brands, working together, we can provide cool and comprehensive lighting and media fixture ranges and control solutions at affordable prices.”
He adds: “We and the team at ArKaos all share the same lively and proactive management style and can-do attitude, so we’re anticipating a long and proactive working relationship for the benefit of our respective client bases.”
