Atlona just debuted two new 3×1 switchers it is aiming at UCC and higher-ed; the AT-OME-CS31-SA (three HDMI inputs) and AT-OME-CS31-SA-HDBT (one HDBaseT input and two HDMI inputs) both include USB routing, audio mixing, amplification and control. The OME-CS31-SA and OME-CS31-SA-HDBT share the same feature set, but the OME-CS1-SA is built for local switching applications that place its inputs close to the switcher and display, while the OME-CS31-SA-HDBT accommodates remote and local AV switching. Because the remote input of the OME-CS31-SA-HDBT is HDBaseT, it supports the extension of HDMI, Ethernet, power, control and USB 2.0 data up to 100 meters (330 feet).

In addition, both switchers include audio ducking and can be muted by contact closure or automatically when a public address (PA) announcement is detected. Other audio capabilities include an onboard mixer for combining three line inputs, de-embedded HDMI and USB audio, as well as a 2 x 25-watt amplifier and line-level outputs.

Both OME-CS31 models support switching between two host devices and include a four-port hub for connecting cameras, speakerphones, interactive displays or other peripherals.
