Atlona makes a big splash the Professional AV market with two new powerful products designed to convert between SD-HD/SDI and virtually any other format

San Jose, CA - June 1, 2008 - Atlona Technologies releases two new products to convert between HD -SD/SDI and HDMI, DVI, Component (YPbPr), Composite, and VGA (RGBHV). This may sound like alphabet soup, but it is actually a description of a powerful device designed to convert from the professional broadcast format of SDI in standard and digital, to any of the more common formats for commercial and consumer Audio Video systems or vice versa. The AT -HDSDI -AV is designed to take in any SDTV or HDTV resolution from an SDI source, and convert to analog formats such as Composite, VGA, or Component or Digital formats such as DVI and HDMI. It also acts as a 1x2 SDI amplifier, allowing up to two direct loop outs. This external hardware based solution allows pro's to convert feeds directly from high end cameras and other SDI sources, for real time monitoring or display, with out being processed though expensive software based video interfaces. Transversely, the AT -AV -HDSDI is designed to take any commercial or consumer level video connection at any resolution, and output either SD/SDI or HD/SDI. This unit features three SDI outputs, allowing users to split their converted signal to three SD -HD/SDI displays. This device allows for Instant integration of legacy devices into professional broadcast level AV systems, with out the need of extensive pre -editing and conversion to match existing SDI systems.

Atlona has been providing solution based products for every conceivable AV application for the past five years. Now, with the introduction of these units, as well as several other HD -SD/SDI products, Atlona's has become a well rounded "one stop shop" for any business to implement seemingly complex AV systems, or even integrate new technologies into their existing systems. These new high end converters will be economical for any budget with a low MSRP of $1199.00 for each. These units are currently available for pre -order, and will start shipping by the end of July.
