ATEN International, the leading provider of IT connectivity and management solutions, today announcedthe availability of the PHANTOM-STMUC410, an advanced, USB-powered gamepad emulator for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, such as PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The PHANTOM-S is the first of many new products ATEN plans to introduce for mobile, gaming and home entertainment applications.
The PHANTOM-S allows standard keyboard and mouse peripherals to mimic PS3 and Xbox 360 console controllers, enabling gamers and enthusiasts to operate FPS (First-Person Shooter) games with exceptional speed and front sight accuracy. Integrating ATEN’s signal conversion technology, the PHANTOM-S provides “plug-and-play” setup, allowing gamers to personalize their desktop keyboard and mouse configurations by mapping them to conventional game controllers, making them usable for both game play and other functions already supported by game consoles. These features vastly improve the gaming experience by offering smooth mouse movements, enhanced continuous fire with directed straight-line accuracy, and instant sensitivity adjustments.
Designed to support real-time dynamic detect mouse DPI (dots per inch) and USB polling rate, the PHANTOM-S provides a PC-like gaming experience without compromising performance.
“FPS and Third-Person Shooter (TPS) games represent more than 70 percent of the best-selling console titles on the market today, creating a unique opportunity for the PHANTOM-S gamepad emulator,” explained Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International. “Through the PHANTOM-S, gamers and enthusiasts can utilize their desktop computers and laptops to achieve unprecedented speed, accuracy and customization.”
In addition to wired and wireless keyboard and mouse configurations, the PHANTOM-S, through its unique “play mode” supports laptop keyboards for direct PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One gaming, offering performance, convenience and smooth game controls. Utilizing macros, gamers can configure a single key to perform the function of multiple key combinations. To keep pace with next-generation game consoles, such as the Xbox One, ATEN continuously updates the PHANTOM-S’s software and firmware, adding new features and functionality.
Additional features of the PHANTOM-S include:
• Macro and Turbo key function support;
• Support for real-time in-game configuration and tuning;
• PC gaming-grade polling rate;
• Supports keyboard mode for text chatting;
• Real-time feedback for switching profiles and functions via hotkeys;
• Simple configuration and software GUI support.
