SAN JOSE, July 18, 2016 - Atlona, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for AV systems, announced it is now shipping three new products with applications in both residential and commercial markets, the AT-UHD-CAT-4 and AT-UHD-CAT-4ED HDMI to HDBaseT distribution amplifiers and AT-HDVS-150-RX HDBaseT receiver with built-in scaling.


"With the UHD-CAT-4/4ED and HDVS-150-RX, we add the features our customers need to make their projects better and lives easier, like extended AV and control signal distances, Power over Ethernet and an additional array of convenience benefits," said Joshua Castro, product manager for Atlona. "The 4K distribution amps, with four-way output, will suit a wide range of residential and commercial projects. The HDBaseT receiver will primarily be used in commercial and educational settings, including collaboration spaces. "

AT-UHD-CAT-4/4ED

The AT-UHD-CAT-4 and AT-UHD-CAT-4ED (extended distance) 4K/UHD HDMI to HDBaseT™ distribution amplifiers provide clear, crisp, ultra-high definition images to retail, restaurant and entertainment settings, or any single image/multi-screen environment that requires display control. Key features of both models include Power over Internet (PoE) for powering remote receivers, pass-through HDMI input connections, four HDBaseT outputs, display control capability, 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:2:0 color subsampling, HDCP 2.2 compliance and EDID management.

Each AT-UHD-CAT-4 output transmits AV and control signals up to 230 ft. (70 m) @ 1080p and 130 ft. (40 m) @ 4K/UHD. The AT-UHD-CAT-4ED extends the distance of these signals to 328 feet (100 m). The AT-UHD-CAT-4 is compatible with the Atlona AT-UHD-EX-70C-RX receiver, while the AT-UHD-CAT-4ED pairs with the AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX receiver.

The AT-UHD-CAT-4/4ED amplifiers control a wide variety of consumer and commercial displays via CEC, IR, or RS-232. They are also compatible with TCP/IP control for additional commercial content distribution applications. Both have 1U, half-rack width enclosures with external, international power supplies. The AT-UHD-CAT-4/4ED amplifiers also support the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform that integrates remote product configuration, management and updating.

AT-HDVS-150-RX

The Atlona AT-HDVS-150-RX HDBaseT™ scaler receiver handles AV signals (up to 1080p/60Hz or 1920×1200 video with embedded multi-channel audio) and two-way control signals via HDMI cables from distances of up to 328 feet (100 meters). The model also adds industry-standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) for added installation flexibility and full HDBaseT certification.

The receiver is ideal for complete system applications integrating the AT-HDVS-150-TX Series transmitters to provide HDMI and VGA signal support to a 2 or 3-input AV system in huddle rooms or teaching environments. It can also be used in system expansion applications as an output scaler for the company's AT-UHD-CLSO-824 matrix switcher. The HDVS-150 Series includes many turnkey features for convenience and ease-of-use, including auto-switching, display control, projector on/off control, analog audio de-embedding, volume control and RS-232 control. Its built in scaler works with matrix switchers to optimize source signals with different resolutions to a display's native resolution.
