Atlona Introduces Backlit Network Keypad for Selected AV Switchers

Combined with Atlona IP-controllable switching products for huddle spaces, classrooms and conference rooms, the network keypad has eight soft-touch backlit buttons and acts as a remote IP-based controller to send commands to the switcher. The switcher in turn responds to the commands or conveys them via RS-232 to control other devices, such as video displays.

San Jose, Calif., October 20, 2016 - Atlona, a leading maker of connectivity solutions for AV systems, announces an easy-to-use 8-button network keypad, Model AT-ANC-108D, for Atlona IP-controlled AV switchers equipped for single channel output, including single channel mirrored output components. Designed for rapid installation and remote configuration, the keypad, utilizing Power over Ethernet technology, requires only a single category cable for both signal and power.

Combined with Atlona IP-controllable switching products for huddle spaces, classrooms and conference rooms, the network keypad has eight soft-touch backlit buttons and acts as a remote IP-based controller to send commands to the switcher. The switcher in turn responds to the commands or conveys them via RS-232 to control other devices, such as video displays.
"While many of our switchers feature our Advanced Automated System Control (AASC), which offers seamless display powering and source selection, many presenters still face situations where they want a tactile means of changing inputs, operating displays and adjusting volume," said Joshua Castro, Atlona product manager. "The AT-ANC-108D provides a quick and cost-effective point-of-control solution."
The AT-ANC-108D is configured and managed via the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform that integrates product configuration, management and updating. Specially designed for IP-controllable Atlona products, the Atlona Management System eliminates complex control system programming, reduces installation time and enables remote monitoring, software updating and support.
The AT-ANC-108D's compact and shallow depth fits into a US 1-gang junction box for easy placement in walls or switch enclosures built into tables and cabinetry. Its aesthetic form factor suits a wide range of environments. In cases where powering by POE is not practical or desired, it can also be run by an optional, external 5 VDC power supply.
Like all of Atlona's products, the AT-ANC-108D is covered by the company's award-winning 10-year limited product warranty to ensure long-term product reliability and performance in residential and commercial systems.
The AT-ANC-108D is currently available for MSRP $399.99.
