The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-5000ED is a 5 x 1 switcher with two HDBaseT inputs, three HDMI inputs, mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs, balanced audio outputs, automatic input selection, and automatic display control capability. The HDBaseT inputs match perfectly with the HDVS-200-TX modules to enable VGA and HDMI sources to be easily integrated into a system. The switcher supports 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz, 4:2:0; (10.2 Gbps). It transmits AV signals along with Ethernet, power, and control over a single cable to displays up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher. Control options include automatic input selection, front-panel buttons, and compatibility with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP-based control systems. Displays are automatically turned on and off using CEC, IP, or RS-232.
The AT-UHD-SW-5000ED enables two HDVS transmitters to be used in a single system. With Ethernet enabled HDBaseT transmission to the HDVS transmitters and the receiver control, setup and maintenance is simplified. Automatic input selection and display control simplify the system, reducing cost, reducing setup time and resulting in a better end user experience.
Offering first-of-its-kind display capabilities, the AT-UHD-SW-5000ED allows display control using CEC, TCP/IP or RS-232 signals. This means that many more types of displays can be controlled, costs are reduced, and that wiring is simplified. In a commercial setting, when a switcher is integrated with a display, the AT-UHD-SW-5000ED forces the display to power on automatically when a laptop is connected. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the AT-UHD-SW-5000ED forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system and the savings incurred by auto-display shutdown provide a significant return on investment.
The AT-UHD-SW-5000ED automatically selects an input source based on detection of the 5 volt hot plug detect (HPD) signal, as well as active video. This ensures reliable auto-switching operation for all video sources, including DVRs, DisplayPort / Mini DisplayPort adapters, and other devices that always maintain the HPD line at the 5 volt “high” state but may not be delivering active video.
The AT-UHD-SW-5000ED adds 4K/UHD performance and extended distance HDBaseT transmission to Atlona’s HDMI small switcher family for a unique solution for professional integration applications. Internal HDBaseT and video distribution eliminate the need for additional system components while PoE eliminates the need for a power supply for the receiver. As an alternative, with an HDBaseT-capable display, an HDBaseT receiver isn’t required, reducing system complexity and saving integrators time and money.
Advanced features also include a web-based GUI for easy set-up and management of EDID, HDCP, and display control. The switcher offers audio de-embedding of PCM audio over HDMI to two-channel, balanced +4 dBu analog audio outputs. The switcher is a cost-effective product for professional integration featuring a compact, 1U, half-rack width enclosure that is easily installed with included 19” rack-mount brackets. Two units can be mounted side-by-side.
