Atlona Releases New HDMI/VGA Switcher/Transmitters and Scaler/Receiver

Units Combine Digital and Analog Inputs With HDBaseT(TM) for Flexible Transmission and Control

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Oct. 7, 2013 — Atlona(R), a leading digital connectivity solutions provider, today announced the release of its new HDVS family of HDMI(R) and VGA/Audio products  the AT-HDVS-TX box, AT-HDVS-TX-WP wall plate switcher/transmitters, and AT-HDVS-RX scaler/receiver with signal transport via HDBaseT(TM). When combined, these products provide connectivity and control for installed AV systems by enabling the use of both VGA and HDMI sources in addition to control of connected displays. For VGA sources, analog audio is embedded within digital video signals.

In smaller rooms with digital displays such as flat panels and projectors with DVI or HDMI inputs, the new units provide the most effective solution to transition from analog to digital sources. With balanced analog audio de-embedding, the units provide a simple interface to external audio systems, while the integrated scaler ensures compatibility of VGA sources with any display. The AT-HDVS-TX-WP fits both U.S. and U.K. 2 gang wall-boxes and features a rugged steel construction, making it ideal for classroom settings.

With HDBaseT, users obtain reliable connection distances up to 230 feet (70 meters) from the wall plate using a single category cable. Because they use Power over Category cable (PoCc), there is no need for a power source at the wall plate, leading to a simple installation and setup process. Both the AT-HDVS-TX and the AT-HDVS-TX-WP are controllable by illuminated buttons, RS-232, or using auto-switch to select the last connected source. Flexibility is furthered with the AT-HDVS-RX  a fully functional scaler — now equipped with HDBaseT input and HDMI output with balanced, de-embedded analog audio. Additionally, the unit can control displays based on signals received from the AT-HDVS-TX or AT-HDVS-TX-WP or can be controlled by RS-232.

Both the AT-HDVS-TX or AT-HDVS-TX-WP can be used for switching/control in a simple system or as input and output devices in larger systems. The AT-HDVS-TX is ideal for use with displays with HDBaseT inputs, since it can be powered both directly as well as by PoCc from the receiver. For systems with multiple displays, the AT-HDVS-RX scaler/receiver provides simple resolution management and signal distribution via HDBaseT.

“Our new switcher/transmitters and scaler/receivers mark a significant step for Atlona as we begin to produce products that are specifically designed for today’s commercial AV marketplace,” said Bill Schripsema, commercial product manager, Atlona. “We consider our new HDVS products to be the perfect solutions for the requirements of today’s small systems and we look forward to providing support for larger systems in the very near future.”
