The AT-HDR-EX-70-2PS supports HDMI data rates up to 18Gbps and is HDCP 2.2 compliant, enabling the transport of protected content. The solution supports embedded multi-channel audio in a wide array of formats including PCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS:X.
