The latest 4K/UHD scaling innovation from Atlona will make its North American debut next month, as the company turns the spotlight on its new AT-HDVS-SC-RX HDBaseT receiver and scaler at InfoComm 2018. The first HDBaseT receiver to feature Atlona CrystalScale Technology (ACT) for premium-quality 4K scaling, picture optimization and video wall processing, the HDVS-SC-RX will be demonstrated in booth C3576 at the show.
The HDVS-SC-RX incorporates two-input auto-switching, supporting a local HDMI source as well as receiving video, audio, control and Ethernet over HDBaseT. The 4K/UHD HDVS-SC-RX also expands on the proven features of the industry-standard HDVS Series, including audio de-embedding, automatic display control support and the ability to power remote transmitters through Power over Ethernet (PoE).
Engineered with a focus on superior quality, the CrystalScale signal processing engine delivers pristine images without sacrificing fine color or spatial detail. The results are particularly impressive when down-converting 4K/UHD content to 1080p – or, conversely, when up-converting HD content to 4K — to match the resolution of target displays. The advantages of CrystalScale are immediately evident when showing data tables, graphs, medical imaging and other complex, detail-intensive visuals. Meanwhile, exclusive features such as gamma and uniformity correction compensate for perceived color issues on certain LED or LCD displays.
Advanced video wall processing functions enable the scaling receiver to easily and cost-effectively drive high-resolution content across large display arrays. Image rotation, mirroring and bezel compensation support portrait-oriented as well as flipped displays. Additional image optimization and processing capabilities in the HDVS-SC-RX include motion-adaptive video de-interlacing, 3:2 pull-down, aspect ratio control, and internal test pattern generation.
The HDVS-SC-RX integrates seamlessly with Atlona’s HDVS-200 family of switching HDBaseT transmitters, Gain series amplifiers, and HDBaseT-enabled matrix switchers and distribution amplifiers to support 4K presentation architectures of any scale and video walls of any size. The combination of the HDVS-SC-RX with an HDVS-200 series transmitter enablescompact, fully-automated AV systems with the convenience of automatic input selection, display control, HDBaseT extension and exceptional-quality 4K/UHD scaling.
The HDVS-SC-RX offers additional integration-friendly features such as TCP/IP and RS-232 scaler and display control, as well as contact closure ports for controlling a motorized screen or display lift. The new scaling receiver can be remotely configured, managed and monitored over a LAN, WAN or the Internet via the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) network software platform, and integrates seamlessly with Atlona’s IP-based Velocity™ AV control platform.
“The HDVS-SC-RX is ideal for highly-detailed applications that require greater resolution, pixel density and color fidelity,” said Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona. “Our CrystalScale processing engine delivers extraordinary video quality, and combines with the unit’s powerful video wall processing capabilities, image optimization functions and rich integration features to provide a comprehensive and cost-effective scaling solution for any size of project.”
