Atlona Ships Single-Gang HDMI Wall Plate Switcher for HDBaseT AV Systems

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, December 18, 2017 – AV collaboration and control leader Atlona has unveiled the AT-HDVS-210H-TX-WP wall plate switcher, the latest offering in its growing array of conveniently-accessible yet discreet connectivity options for HDBaseT AV installations. Available immediately, the HDVS-210H-TX-WP features two HDMI inputs and combines 2×1 auto-switching, integrated display control and HDBaseT signal transmission in an aesthetically-friendly, single-gang form factor.

The new switcher is now shipping and will make its exhibition debut alongside other Atlona innovations during the company’s 15th anniversary celebration in stand 5-U80 at ISE 2018, taking place February 6-9 in Amsterdam.

The HDVS-210H-TX-WP supports video up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling or 30 Hz with 4:4:4 subsampling, and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for compatibility with protected content. Automatic input selection and display control intelligently switch between the unit’s two inputs and power up compatible displays when a presentation device is connected, enabling intuitive and effortless operation. Input switching, audio volume, and display power can also be controlled via RS-232 or TCP/IP commands for easy control system integration.

The new switcher can transmit video, embedded audio, power and control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters), with power supplied remotely by the receiver via Power over Ethernet (PoE) for integration simplicity. Ideal as a core element of small AV deployments or for remote AV input connectivity in larger-scale applications, the HDVS-210H-TX-WP pairs seamlessly with Atlona’s AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX-PSE receiver, HDVS series of receivers and scalers, and HDBaseT-equipped switchers such as the CLSO Series of presentation switchers.

The HDVS-210H-TX-WP packs its dual-input capabilities into a U.S. one-gang, Decora-style wall plate form factor and includes interchangeable black and white trim kits, minimizing space requirements while enabling inconspicuous installation on a wall, in furniture, or in a floor box. Power, input and link indicators provide easy visual confirmation of signal status. Also available as the AT-HDVS-210H-TX-WP-EMEA-KIT that is packaged with a 1-gang new construction bracket for use internationally where US junction boxes are not available.

“End-users and systems integrators enjoy the convenient access of wall or furniture-embedded AV connections, but want the connectivity points to be as subtle and inconspicuous as possible,” said Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona. “By offering two HDMI inputs, rich functionality and robust integration features in a single-gang design, the HDVS-210H-TX-WP achieves these small-footprint goals while delivering exceptional value for classrooms, huddle rooms and meeting spaces.”

Like other Atlona HDVS series products, the HDVS-210H-TX-WP can be remotely configured and managed over a network with the free Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software, and integrates tightly with the recently-released Atlona Velocity™ control platform. Atlona’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty is included. Additional wall plate models are also available for customers and integrators with broader input requirements such as analog VGA or USB-C connectivity.
