Atlona Technologies, a digital connectivity solutions provider, introduces its latest presentation video switcher/scaler—the AT-LINE-PRO5—that features 11 inputs and two mirrored HDMI outputs.
The AT-LINE-PRO5 is designed to create presentations as well as simplify setup in digital interactive classrooms, boardrooms and other settings, the company says. In addition, the unit features a built-in scaler and multiple input types, and it supports resolutions of 640x480 to 1920x1200 and from 480i up to 1080p, allowing users to scale any source to their display's resolution, according to Atlona.
The dual mirrored HDMI outputs of the AT-LINE-PRO5 reduce the amount of equipment required for presentations by allowing users to send two different display sources simultaneously, the company says. Furthermore, the unit offers several different inputs—four HDMI, one DVI, two VGA, two components, and two composite—to connect a wide variety of devices.
The AT-LINE-PRO5’s multiple inputs allow users to keep DVD players, computers, cameras, and many other components connected at the same time during the presentation, eliminating interruptions from switching out source equipment.
When working with multiple inputs and resolutions, users can find it difficult to display them all correctly, but with the AT-LINE-PRO5's built-in scaler, users simply choose the output resolution, and the unit automatically scales all inputs accordingly, the company says. To accommodate the needs of any application, the unit offers a variety of control options, including IR remote, the face panel, RS-232, and integration into any control system.
The AT-LINE-PRO5 was designed to be quick and easy to set up, said Michael Khain, Atlona's vice president of engineering. “It’s as simple as plugging in up to 11 source components and selecting an output resolution, and the machine does the rest,” he said, adding, “Users can focus on their presentations without the distraction of plugging and unplugging components or adjusting displays.”
