Atlona AT-UHD-PRO3-88M matrix switch
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Atlona, a manufacturer of audiovisual connectivity products, announced that the AT-UHD-PRO3-88M 8x8 matrix and the 6x6 AT-UHD-PRO3-66M matrix switchers are now shipping. The first-of-their-kind for the company, the HDMI-to-HDBaseT matrix switchers are capable of handling 4K/UHD video at up to 60 frames per second with HDCP 2.2 copy protection.
“I believe we are among the first to ship a matrix with 4K/UHD capabilities and HDCP 2.2 copy protection,” said Ilya Khayn, Atlona’s co-founder and president. “We had an overwhelmingly positive response to these matrix switchers when we first introduced them back in February, and now our customers will be among the first to have this class of product.”
The models provide HDBaseT outputs for cable runs of both 230 ft. (70m) and 328 ft. (100m), 48V Power over Ethernet, two HDMI outputs which are independently selectable as mirrored or matrix outputs, analog audio de-embedding on multiple sources, EDID communications support, a web-based GUI for matrix configuration and front panel controls.
Both matrices also offer capability for bidirectional remote control via IP, IR, and RS-232 protocols using 3rd party control systems.
In addition to supporting the latest standards for video and content protection, the matrices are equipped with audio features such as de-embedding of high-resolution audio streams with support for signals up to 192 kHz/24-bit, plus independent control for volume, mute and five-band EQ for all de-embedded audio content. Connection to analog audio outputs (unbalanced) are made with captive-screw connectors.
In anticipation of future software upgrades, Atlona has equipped the new matrices with dedicated firmware data ports for IP (RJ45) and USB connection.
Designed for multi-zone conference, display or commercial distribution applications, the matrix switchers feature 2U, rack-mountable enclosures with internal, international power supplies.
