AMSTERDAM, February 10, 2015 – Strengthening a core product line for commercial AV markets, Atlona today introduced its first series of HDMI switchers supporting 4K/UHD video @ 60Hz and featuring advanced configuration and management capabilities required by system integrators. The new UHD-SW-5 Series consists of three, 5x1 4K/UHD HDMI switchers with 10.2 Gbps bandwidth and an internal web server enabling GUI control over EDID, HDCP, and audio settings. All new models are equipped for auto-switching and remote control via IR, IP, or RS232 formats. The series’ top model, the AT-UHD-SW-52ED, offers added outputs for balanced stereo audio, mirrored HDMI, and mirrored HDBaseT with Power over Ethernet for signal transmission up to 100m.
The products, part of the largest launch in Atlona’s history, debuted at ISE 2015, Europe’s largest trade expo devoted to commercial and residential AV and electronic systems. Atlona, based in San Jose, Calif., is exhibiting in Stand 7-P180.
“The UHD-SW-5 Series is a huge leap forward for our HDMI switcher line and is going to change the way many commercial-market integrators, in Europe and globally, view our products,” said Michael Khain, VP Product Development/Engineering. “In addition to supporting 4K/UHD, this is our first HDMI switcher line with EDID and HDCP management and web-enabled control. It dramatically expands the commercial applications for our products.”
All three switchers – models AT-UHD-SW-51, AT-UHD-SW-52, and AT-UHD-SW-52ED – support multi-channel digital audio formats up to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. All allow HDCP management for use with compliant and non-compliant devices and are equipped with USB and LAN ports for firmware updating. Like all Atlona products, they carry a 10-year warranty.
