Atlona(R) Now Shipping Eight-Zone AT-H2H-88M HDMI(R) Matrix Switcher

Supports High-Speed HDMI and Digital Multichannel Audio

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Nov. 26, 2012 -- Atlona(R) today announced that the company is now shipping its AT-H2H-88M 8x8 HDMI(R) matrix switcher, which is designed for signal routing in large home theaters and professional installations. The AT-H2H-88M is bolstered with advanced features such as EDID management, S/PDIF audio loop outs, multiple control interfaces, in-field upgradable firmware, and Audio Return Channel (ARC).


"Recently, we introduced the AT-H2H-44M 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher, which has proven to be a hit with installers for mid-size home theater projects," said Steve Heintz, senior product manager, Atlona. "Adding more flexibility to our switcher lineup, the AT-H2H-88M brings the same advanced features to eight zones, accommodating the signal routing needs for larger projects within residential and commercial environments."

The AT-H2H-88M's advanced EDID management feature ensures compatibility across multiple display types, sends communication between sources and displays, and automatically provides a compatible EDID at start up. The unit also features an EDID learning function that can be customized for any connected component such as AVRs, set-top boxes, and TVs. S/PDIF port loop-outs allow audio distribution to zone amplifiers or A/V receivers within a rack, while the video signal is routed via the HDMI output to the zone display. The S/PDIF output supports digital audio signals up to Dolby(R) Digital and DTS 5.1.

With multiple control interfaces such as RS-232, IR, and the front panel -- with future updates for TCP/IP control through the unit's Ethernet port -- this 8x8 HDMI matrix switcher was developed with whole-home media control and professional needs in mind. In addition, the AT-H2H-88M features a field-serviceable firmware port that allows for quick and easy upgrades.

The AT-H2H-88M is available now at authorized dealers and distributors.
