Atlona Technologies, a provider of digital connectivity solutions, has issued its latest additions to its family of high-speed HDMI matrix switchers that extend HDMI sources—including full, uncompressed HD video and audio—up to 330 feet at 1080p resolution over a single Cat 5/6/7 cable.
The AT-PRO2HD88M and AT-PRO2HD1616M are both equipped with bidirectional infrared (IR) and RS-232, and locking power connectors, and extend HDMI sources up to 450 feet at 1080p resolution that supports all 3D formats, Atlona says. In addition, the AT-PRO2HD88M and AT-PRO2HD1616M have the ability to equalize, amplify, and reclock the signal to ensure HDMI-accurate signal transmission through long cables without quality loss, the company says.
By supporting HDBaseT technology, the switchers also provide bidirectional RS-232 and zone-specific bidirectional IR pass-through up to 60 KHz and extensive “extended display identification data” (EDID) management, allowing installers to make any source or display function properly.
“The next-generation AT-PRO2HD88M and AT-PRO2HD1616M are the most advanced and industrious matrix switchers on the market today,” said Michael Khain, Atlona's vice president of product development. “Bolstered with HDBaseT technology, the units greatly simplify installations, saving time and money for integrators without compromising on quality for their clients,” he said.
