Atlona has added new HDBaseT products to its Omega Series of AV integration solutions, the AT-OME-SW21-TX-WPC wall plate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter. The device combines HDMI and USB-C switching with extension of both AV and USB data in a U.S. one-gang wallplate form factor.
The OME-SW21-TX-WPC transports video, audio and display control signals. When paired with Atlona’s AT-OME-EX-RX receiver or AT-OME-SR21 switcher, it transports USB data via HDBaseT over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). The transmitter supports video sources up to 4K/UHD at 60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for delivery of protected content.
The OME-SW21-TX-WPC’s USB-C input supports both AV and data, enabling single-cable connectivity for recent Mac, Chromebook and Windows PCs as well as smartphones and tablets with AV-capable USB-C ports. Separate USB 2.0 interfaces and the built-in USB hub support an additional host system and a peripheral device such as a speakerphone or microphone. This makes the device an ideal extension solution for soft codec and web-based conferencing applications when used with a compatible Omega switcher or receiver. The USB type B host interface can also be paired with the HDMI input for synchronous switching of video and data.
