Atlona announced that its new premier commercial-market 4K switcher, the AT-UHD-SW-5000ED, is now shipping. The five-input switcher includes two HDBaseT inputs and mirrored HDMI/HDBaseT outputs, offering integrators more flexibility in designing boardroom, classroom and other AV presentation systems.
The SW-5000ED supports 4K/UHD@60 Hz, 4:2:0 video (10.2 Gbps) and transmits AV signals along with Ethernet, Power over Ethernet, and control over a single cable to displays up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher. Built-in control options include auto-switching, front-panel buttons, and compatibility with IR, RS232 or TCP/IP-based control systems. The switcher also offers three HDMI inputs and audio de-embedding of digital audio from HDMI to two-channel, balanced analog audio.
The SW-5000ED enables two Atlona HDVS transmitters to be used in a single system and also supports the Atlona Management System (AMS). Displays connected to the SW-5000ED can be automatically turned on and off using IP, RS232 or CEC control. Additional advanced features include a web-based GUI for easy set-up and management of EDID, HDCP and display control. The switcher is equipped with USB and LAN ports for firmware updating.
The SW-5000ED features a compact, 1U, half-rack width enclosure that is installed with included 19″ rack-mount brackets that allow two units to be mounted side-by-side.
The AT-UHD-SW-5000ED switcher has a list price of $1,549.95 and it’s here.
