SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Oct. 23, 2012 - Atlona(R) today announced that the company is now shipping its new AT-H2H-44M 4×4 HDMI(R) matrix switcher. A comprehensive signal routing switch supporting high-speed HDMI and uncompressed digital multichannel audio switching and distribution across four zones, the AT-H2H-44M boasts unique features including advanced EDID management, S/PDIF audio loop outs, multiple control interfaces, in-field upgradable firmware, and Audio Return Channel (ARC).
The AT-H2H-44M'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 (STBs), 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 through the unit's Ethernet port - this 4×4 HDMI matrix switcher was developed with whole-home media control and light professional needs in mind. In addition, the AT-H2H-44M features a field-serviceable firmware port that allows for quick and easy upgrades.
