Atlona Releases AT-DRC444 Multi-Input Presentation Switcher

Unit Combines Three Audio and Video Switching Platforms With Microphone Input and RS232/RS485 Input and Output

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — March 9, 2011 — Atlona Technologies(R) today introduced its AT-DRC444 multi-input presentation switcher. The cost-effective device features three separate audio and video switching platforms in one product, combined with a microphone input, RS232 input for control via third-party control systems, and RS232/RS485 outputs for full control over projectors or displays.

The AT-DRC444 includes four inputs with one output composite video switch; four inputs with one output VGA switch; and 2 DVI and 2 HDMI inputs with one DVI output switch. Each video input is accompa¬nied with its own audio input, for a total of 12 audio inputs. All three video platforms are completely separate, allowing them to all be switched simultaneously.

The switcher features a microphone input and allows users to mix the microphone signal with the main audio in “talk-over” mode. For example, if a DVD is playing, the microphone can be used over the DVD player’s audio channel. The AT-DRC444 is designed to be controlled via RS232, RS485, or IR. In addition, the unit is equipped with RS232/RS485 programmable output, allowing users to send commands to projectors and displays.

“We are excited to introduce the new AT-DRC444, which is the ultimate switching solution for classrooms, conference rooms and boardrooms, and many other presentation environments,” said Ilya Khayn, president of Atlona Technologies. “By combining three switching platforms into one unit, the AT-DRC444 offers a cost-effective solution for any A/V system while providing the control options needed for a simple user experience.”

The AT-DRC444′s DVI/HDMI inputs support extremely high resolutions up to 1920×1200 and are fully EDID and HDCP compliant. The VGA inputs support high bandwidth to 750 MHz for resolutions up to 3200×2400, while the VGA platform fully supports DDC. Composite video inputs are compatible with NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.42, PAL, and SECAM formats.

The unit’s 12 audio inputs include four stereo balanced/unbalanced on capture screw connectors for the composite video and DVI/HDMI platforms, and 3.5-mm (1/8-inch) audio inputs for the VGA platform. Each audio input supports separate audio adjustments and presets.

The AT-DRC444 is available now at an MSRP of $1,299.
