Atlona Showcases Integrated 4K Collaboration System For Use With Cloud-Based Conferencing Services at CEDIA 2016

at-uhd-hdvs-300-kitDALLAS, Tex., September 14, 2016 – Atlona, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for AV systems, showcases its AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT at CEDIA 2016. The industry’s first HDBaseT™-equipped collaboration system provides 4K AV switching, USB and HDMI extension, and system control for PC-based conferencing using Skype for Business®, WebEx® and GoToMeeting® cloud services. The new two-piece system, which strengthens the company’s standing in the collaboration solutions market , is the industry’s first to enable a single category cable connection between a conferencing hub and a 4K display with USB camera, greatly simplifying system design, installation and daily use.

“This is a simple, elegant solution that eliminates a kluge of components and cabling that complicate system design, degrade reliability, and confuse users,” said Ilya Khayn, CEO and co-founder.  “One key innovation is using HDBaseT to carry video from a display-mounted camera back to a hub that supports PC-based conferencing codecs. As a result, we can use just one category cable between the hub and the display and camera.  Integrators are looking for this degree of simplicity in systems that support Skype and other PC-based cloud conferencing services.”

The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT consists of the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-TX, which serves as the conferencing hub, video switch, and HDBaseT transmitter, and the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-RX, which receives the HDBaseT signal and delivers an HDMI signal to the display.  The HDVS-300-RX, which supports AV, Ethernet and control signals, is also equipped with USB ports for carrying video back to the hub. Additionally, a local HDMI input is available on the receiver.
“Our hub provides inputs for HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, and USB microphone, as well as for USB peripherals.  Our receiver, co-located with the display, provides inputs to support a USB camera or a PC-based USB 3.0 camera.  This new kit is going to have a lot integrators taking a long, hard look at Atlona for their huddle space solutions,” added Khayn.

The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT is compatible with Ultra High Definition sources and displays up to 4K/UHD@60Hz with 4:2:0 color subsampling.  Automatic input selection allows for hands-free transitions between presenters, and simplified display control with CEC enables automatic display on/off control as well as volume adjustment from the HDVS-300-TX.  The kit supports TCP/IP and RS-232 control for increased capability with advanced systems, and it supports the Atlona Management System (AMS), which provides remote access for product configuration, troubleshooting, and system updates.

The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT is currently available with a suggested end-user price of $1899.99 (US).
