Atlona Launches Universal AV Switching for Wired and Wireless Sources with AT-UHD-SW-510W

at-uhd-sw-510w-0117Atlona will introduce the AT-UHD-SW-510W, the latest member of its five-input SW Series of 4K/UHD integration solutions for AV signal switching and extension, at the forthcoming ISE 2017 show (February 7-10, Amsterdam RAI, Stand 5-S92). Atlona says the SW-510W is the first product of its kind to integrate switching for both wired and wireless AV sources, as well as the first AV switcher to include a USB-C input alongside HDMI and DisplayPort. The device is 4K@60Hz with 4:2:0 or 4K@30Hz with 4:4:4.

The SW-510W combines traditional wired plus wireless AV connectivity in a single box. It features built-in Wi-Fi capability and native wireless interfacing with iOS, Android, Mac, Chromebook and Windows devices. Screen mirroring is natively supported without the need to install an app. The SW-510W can serve as an integrated, dual band access point or be networked into an existing Wi-Fi installation.

This switcher provides local source connectivity via HDMI, DisplayPort and USB-C inputs. The USB-C interface can also act as a charging station for laptops, tablets and smartphones. Also exclusive to the SW-510W is the ability to automatically switch between sources, based on connection or disconnection of a wired or wireless AV device from the switcher.

The SW-510W delivers several additional features and benefits to enhance efficiency and simplify operations. It can be integrated with a room occupancy sensor to “wake” the product from standby mode and power the display screen with a welcome message upon entering the room. For security and privacy, wireless AV access can be password-protected and automatically timed out. The SW-510W can also automatically power a display on or off, based on source connection or disconnection from a switcher – for both wireless and wireless devices.

Customers can also benefit from the Atlona Management System (AMS), a network software platform for configuring, managing and monitoring the SW-510W and other Atlona IP-controllable devices over a LAN, WAN or VPN. AMS is available free from Atlona and streamlines installation and maintenance of several Atlona products throughout a facility.

The SW-510W includes a 10-year limited product warranty. It will be available in Q3, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $1,699.
