SUNNYVALE, Calif. - - Jan. 27, 2011 - - Atlona Technologies(R) today released three cost -effective custom installation testing kits designed to diagnose 99 -percent of all digital connectivity issues in moments, saving both time and overhead. The AT -KIT -HD1, AT -KIT -PROHD2, and AT -KIT -PROHD3 kits combine an HDMI signal generator and seven -inch HDMI monitor in a high -quality Pelican(TM) case, while the AT -KIT -PROHD3 also features the AT -HDSync HDMI EDID emulator and AT -BAT -DIS7PRO monitor battery.


"Now more than ever, integrators are looking to lower installation costs without sacrificing quality or reliability. To meet this need, we are very excited to introduce our new installation testing kits, which combine the proven Atlona testing products that our customers have come to rely on into one bundled solution to lower costs," said Ilya Khayn, president of Atlona Technologies. "Atlona kits are offered in three versions so our customers can choose the features they need, without paying for those they don't."

All testing kits released today include the Atlona AT -HD800 portable HDMI signal generator. The AT -HD800 allows users to diagnose specific resolution, video timing, EDID, and color space issues in any DVI or HDMI video system. The AT -HD800 features 13 test patterns, including 3D tests side by side, top and bottom, and frame packing, a format that is mandatory for all HDMI 1.4 devices. This powerful pocket -sized signal generator features an HDMI output as well as an HDMI pass -through to easily switch between test patterns and content from any other digital sources, while also giving the ability to read the EDID from the input source and showing it on the display.

The AT -KIT -HD1 features the award -winning AT -DIS7 -HD, a seven -inch testing monitor that recognizes any HDMI or DVI source at resolutions up to 1080p, and allows users to observe both audio and video signals in real time. The compact display allows users to view signal information such as High -bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance, resolution, frequency, digital format, and audio information. The AT -KIT -PROHD2 and AT -KIT -PROHD3 kits are bolstered with the AT -DIS7 -PROHD seven -inch testing monitor, which recognizes any HDMI, DVI, VGA, or component video source at resolutions up to 1080p or 1920x1200. The AT -DIS7 -PROHD can also be used to test 3D sources.

The AT -KIT -PROHD3 kit also features the AT -BAT -DIS7PRO five -hour monitor battery, in addition to the AT -HDSync HDMI EDID emulator. The AT -HDSync is a perfect device for fixing any EDID, hot plug, or sync issue. Almost 90 -percent of all issues when installing HDMI equipment are related to missing EDID or incorrect read -out. The AT -HDSync stores the EDID information and recalls a default EDID setting in non -volatile memory that supports HDCP handshaking. The device can also generate a missing hot plug, and will stay in line to maintain the hot plug at all times.

Atlona's installation testing kits are available at an MSRP of $649 for the AT -KIT -HD1, $799 for the AT -KIT -PROHD2, and $949 for the AT -KIT -PROHD3.
