Atlona Omega switchers

Atlona is shipping two new Atlona Omega switchers, including the AT-OME-MS42 4×2 matrix switcher with USB extension and the AT-OME-RX21 HDBaseT receiver and 4K/UHD scaler.

Available on its own or bundled in the AT-OME-MS42-KIT with an AT-OME-EX-RX HDBaseT receiver, the OME-MS42 delivers exceptional performance and value for 4K/UHD presentation and video conferencing applications in small-to-medium AV environments such as meeting rooms, conference rooms and lecture halls. The OME-MS42 features auto-switching HDMI, DisplayPort and USB-C inputs. It has HDBaseT and HDMI outputs with selectable switching modes and integrated display control, enabling simple, flexible configuration and effortless user operation.

The OME-MS42’s USB-C input can also be used for data connectivity to the Atlona Omega switcher’s integrated USB 2.0 hub. It can also charge the connected device when equipped with an optional power supply. The USB-C port combines with the unit’s USB 2.0 interfaces, plus USB extension for three host computers, plus two peripheral devices such as a camera, microphone, speakerphone or keyboard and mouse.

The AT-OME-RX21 combines HDBaseT receiving with 4K/UHD scaling and an additional local HDMI input.

Finally, the OME-RX21 can remotely power an Atlona HDBaseT transmitter through Power over Ethernet (PoE) and includes automated input selection and display control, audio de-embedding and a built-in dual-port network switch.

Both the OME-MS42 and OME-RX21 are HDCP 2.2 compliant and support HDBaseT transport of video up to 4K/60 with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling alongside embedded audio, control and Ethernet over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). All inputs and the local HDMI output on the MS42 — as well as the HDMI input and output on the OME-RX21 — support 4K/60 4:4:4 at HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps.
