The Ovation Evolution
Built using industry standard hardware platforms, operating systems and network architectures,
the Ovation system stays new in the face of rapidly advancing computing technology.

Ovation reduces maintenance costs and preserves your investment by incorporating industry-
standard components as opposed to the proprietary structures of the other systems. Over time,
your Ovation hardware can evolve incrementally, incorporating new operating systems, hardware
platforms and network topologies while preserving your vital engineering investment in control
logic, graphics and operator training.
