Atlona shipping eight-output 4K distribution amplifier
AV manufacturer Atlona is now shipping its eight-output 4K/UHD distribution amplifier that features HDMI-to-HDBaseT distribution of 4K/UHD @ 60Hz/4:2:0 video, HDBaseT transmission up to 70m, HDCP2.2 support and Power over Ethernet (PoE).
The AT-UHD-CAT-8 features EDID management and advanced display control functions through Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) for use with home TVs.
Atlona product manager Joshua Castro says the eight-channel DA manages long distance distribution of protected 4K/UHD content and enables full control of remote displays without a separate control system.
“These features and PoE to power remote HDBaseT receivers greatly simplify installation and improve system reliability. Having CEC means the DA’s remote control features will work with many of the latest digital TVs now available.”
In addition to HDBaseT outputs, the new DA provides a HDMI output for signal pass-through and daisy-chaining and is equipped with one IR and RS-232 connection for the amp as well as one for each output channel.
With the announcement, Atlona is now shipping the complete line of 4K/UHD distribution amplifiers introduced earlier this year.
“There are a lot of common applications for this product, including home video distribution, multi-screen classrooms or presentation rooms, retail showrooms, sports bars, and digital signage, to name a few,” says Joshua.
“We believe it will attract a lot of interest among dealers and integrators.”
Atlona is distributed by Midwich in Australia and Wired in New Zealand.
