Atlona’s New Omega Series Switcher Offers Integration and User Convenience Features


Atlona has added a new switcher to its Omega Series. The AT-OME-MH21-CP features HDMI and USB-C inputs, USB-C device charging and a built-in USB 3.0 hub for video conferencing peripherals or touch displays.

The OME-MH21-CP combines all of the functionality of Atlona’s AT-OME-MH21 switcher with the ability to charge devices such as laptops, tablets and mobile phones through the new switcher’s USB-C port.

The OME-MH21-CP’s inputs and output are HDCP 2.2 compliant and support 4K, 60 Hz, 4:4:4 video as well as HDR. High-quality 4K to 1080p downscaling is available when the switcher is connected to an HD display. Meanwhile, the OME-MH21-CP’s USB-C input provides direct AV interfacing with recent laptops and mobile devices plus data connectivity to the integrated USB 3.0 hub, along with the aforementioned device charging ability. The USB-C connection combines with the switcher’s two USB type A ports and USB type B interface to support up to two host PCs plus two peripheral devices such as microphones, speakerphones, cameras, soundbars or interactive displays. This is ideal for software-based video conferencing applications, enabling easy switching of video and USB together between host PCs.

The OME-MH21-CP also offers integration and user convenience features including automatic display control, audio de-embedding and automatic input selection, which intelligently switches between inputs when sources are added or removed for touch-free operation.
