Atlona just intro’d a new HDBaseT transmitter in its Omega Series of switching, extension and video processing solutions. A wall plate extender for USB-C AV and data, the AT-OME-EX-TX-WPC transmitter enables remote USB-C and USB 2.0 connectivity for soft codec conferencing and applications with interactive displays.
The OME-EX-TX-WPC transports video, embedded audio, RS-232 control signals and — when paired with a USB-capable Omega Series switcher or receiver — USB data via HDBaseT over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). The wall plate transmitter supports video up to 4K/UHD at 30 hertz with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for delivery of protected content.
The OME-EX-TX-WPC’s USB-C input supports both AV and data, enabling adapter-free AV connectivity for Mac, Chromebook and Windows PCs as well as mobile devices with AV-capable USB-C ports. A separate USB 2.0 interface supports a peripheral device such as a speakerphone, microphone, keyboard or mouse, making the transmitter an ideal extension solution for soft codec and web-based conferencing applications or interactive collaboration, when used with a compatible Omega switcher or receiver.
The OME-EX-TX-WPC features a U.S. one-gang form factor and ships with interchangeable black and white trim kits.
