Atlona Ships AT-HDR-H2H-44M HDMI 4K with HDR Matrix Switcher

Atlona is now shipping the AT-HDR-H2H-44M HDMI matrix switcher, a 4K HDR-capable 4×4 matrix switcher for HDR in a 1RU form factor. The HDR-H2H-44M supports all video resolutions, audio formats, and color space formats encompassed in the HDMI 2.0b specification. Atlona claims that it has fast switching and that it supports 4K/UHD video at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling (10-bit color) and HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps, while HDCP 2.2 compliance enables switching of protected content.

The HDR-H2H-44M offers HDMI audio de-embedding for each output, enabling two-channel PCM or multi-channel surround sound audio to be sent to AV receivers or soundbars via corresponding TOSLINK digital audio outputs. Further easing integration, the switcher includes EDID and HDCP management features and can send CEC signals independently to each output for controlling individual destination displays. The HDR-H2H-44M can be controlled via Ethernet, RS-232 or the included handheld IR remote, and can be configured remotely through its integrated web interface or the free Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) network software platform. Additionally, the HDR-H2H-44M is ready to integrate with their Velocity Control System.

Here are all the tech specs.
