Atlona introduced two new series of switchers and scalers, the HDVS-150 Series and HDVS-200 Series, with four new switchers.
Designed to expand the input capabilities of the company’s UHD-CLSO-824 matrix switcher, the HDVS-150 series includes the AT-HDVS-150-TX, a three-input HDBaseT switcher and AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP, a two-input HDBaseT wall plate switcher, that extend cable runs of both 4K/UHD signals @ 60Hz and VGA input signals up to 1920×1200 up to 230 ft. (70m). The HDVS-150 Series also has several highly desired features, including auto-switching, front-panel input selection, auto display control, and front panel display on/off control.
The AT-HDVS-150-TX features two HDMI inputs plus a VGA input with a 3.5 mm audio connector with auto-switching, which feeds to a single HDBaseT output. The AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP features a single HDMI input and one VGA input with auto switching, and a single HDBaseT output that occupies a two- gang, US or UK-style wall plate enclosure. Both devices receive power from the AT-UHD-CLSO-824 matrix switcher via Power over Ethernet.
An alternative faceplate, the AT-HDVS-TX-NB is available for the HDVS-150-TX-WP, which eliminates the display, on/off, and input select buttons for installations where control is through a third-party system. The faceplate does not have electronics and easily replaces he original factory faceplate.
The HDVS-200 Series consists of the three-input switcher, AT-HDVS-200-TX, and the Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT scaler, AT-HDVS-200-RX. Together they offer auto switching for HDMI and VGA inputs, projector on/off control, analog audio de-embedding, volume control, and TCP/IP and RS-232 control. The HDVS-200 Series devices are useful as input/output modules in larger systems where switchers such as the AT-UHD-CLSO-824 are being used.
The AT-HDVS-200-TX is a three-input switcher with display control for HDMI and VGA transmission over Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT. Featuring two HDMI inputs and a VGA input with a 3.5 mm audio connector, the switcher extends video signals with embedded audio up to 4K/UHD @60 Hz up to a distance of 328 feet (100 m.). The switcher receives power from the AT-HDVS-200-RX scaler via Power over Ethernet, and together they create a standalone AV switching system for classrooms and huddle rooms.
Atlona’s HDVS-200-RX is a scaler with an Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT input for HDMI transmission. When used with the AT-HDVS-200-TX switcher, it receives IP and HDMI signals with embedded audio and controls signals at distances up to 328 ft. (100 m.).
