Atlona today announced the AT-UHD-CAT-2, the latest addition to the company’s HDMI to HDBaseT distribution amplifiers. The new 1×2 UHD-CAT-2 is available immediately and will make its exhibition debut in stand 5-U120 at the upcoming Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019 show (Feb. 5-8 in Amsterdam).
The UHD-CAT-2 features one HDMI input, one HDMI pass-through output, and two HDBaseT outputs for distributing 1080p content up to 230 feet (70 meters) or 4K/UHD material up to 130 feet (40 meters) over category cable. Each HDBaseT output delivers video, audio, remote PoE receiver power, and control signals — including RS232 and IR, plus CEC for automatic display control — over a single cable, simplifying installation while minimizing cable runs between AV sources, control systems and displays.
The new distribution amplifier supports 4K/UHD video at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma sampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant, enabling reliable distribution of copy-protected content. The UHD-CAT-2 is compatible with Atlona receiver options including the AT-UHD-EX-70C-RX, the AT-HDVS-200-RX HD receiver and scaler, and the recently-released AT-HDVS-SC-RX 4K/UHD receiver with advanced CrystalScale scaling technology.
The UHD-CAT-2 offers TCP/IP, RS232 and IR control capabilities for flexible integration, and can be remotely configured, managed and monitored over a LAN, WAN or VPN with the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software or Atlona’s innovative, IP-based Velocity AV control platform.
Here are the details.
