Atlona to Unveil HDMI and USB-C HDBaseT Wall Plate Switcher

Atlona will introduce its new AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP 2×1 wall plate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter at InfoComm 2017. The company says this is AV industry’s first HDBaseT switcher/transmitter with both USB-C (think Apple MacBook connector) input support, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP — which also supports HDMI connectivity.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP enables video up to 4K/UHD at 60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling to be transmitted over 328 feet (100 meters) with embedded audio, control and Ethernet signals. It has one HDMI and one USB-C input, with HDCP 2.2 compliance permitting the transport of protected content. 

Auto-switching and integrated display control automatically select between the two inputs and power up the display when a laptop or presentation device is connected, enabling effortless, automated operation. Input selection, audio volume and display power can also be controlled via RS232 or TCP/IP commands, enabling easy integration with third-party control systems. 

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP features a U.S., one-gang, Decora-style form factor and includes interchangeable black and white wall plates and face plates, allowing discreet installation across a wide range of environments while simplifying ordering for integrators. Power is provided remotely via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP will be available in Q4 and will list for $689.99. Here are the details.
