New Accessory Uses Power Over Category Cable to Simplify Installations and Remove Requirement for Power Sources at Both Transmitter and Receiver
SAN JOSE, Calif. - Jan. 7, 2014 - Atlona®, a leading AV distribution solutions provider, today announced that the company is now shipping its new AT-PS-POCC mid-span power supply. Designed to power PoCc-compatible HDBaseT transmitters and/or receivers without requiring the related Atlona power source device, the AT-PS-POCC can send power to a compatible transmitter, receiver, or both using the same category cable as the HDBaseT signal.
The AT-PS-POCC is a 24V DC bi-directional power supply ideal for any AV environment in which neither the transmitters nor receivers can receive power from a powered transmitter or switch. The system is also useful in installations that would be unduly cluttered with additional power supply wiring. A switch allows the AT-PS-POCC to provide power between the transmitter and receiver, in either direction or both directions simultaneously, and a single power supply can power multiple AT-PS-POCC devices. The elegant solution can be used to enable and disable PoCc devices for easy power routing, and its captive screw design ensures a secure and reliable connection.
In a typical installation, the AT-PS-POCC could connect Atlona's AT-HDVS-TX-WP transmitters/switchers with RSNET, IR, and PRO3 receivers or HDBaseT displays (such as those from Epson or Panasonic). The power supply also supports RSNET, IR, and PRO3 PoCc receivers with PRO2 switchers and RSNET, IR, and PRO3 PoCc receivers from HDBaseT AVRs (such as Pioneer).
To ensure the delivery of the highest quality signals to transmitters and receivers, the AT-PS-POCC fully supports pass-through of resolutions up to 4K x 2K or 1920 x 1200 as well as full 3D pass-through. Supporting PoCc-powered transmitters or receivers as well as non-PoCc power source equipment, the device also supports lossy and lossless multichannel audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
"In the past, integrators using both PoCc- and non-PoCc-compatible products in an installation would have to run power supplies at both the transmitter and receiver," said Bill Schripsema, Atlona commercial product manager. "Atlona's AT-PS-POCC mid-span power supply eliminates that need and ensures that PoCc-compatible HDBaseT transmitters and/or receivers are compatible with a variety of devices that don't provide PoCc power."
