The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-52ED is a 5×1 4K/UHD HDMI switcher with HDMI and HDBaseT outputs, balanced analog audio outputs, automatic input selection and automatic display control capability. The switcher supports 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:2:0 color, offers 3D pass-through, and 10.2 Gbps bandwidth. In addition to an HDMI output, the switcher features a mirrored, Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT output. 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 to PoE-powered HDBaseT receivers like the Atlona AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX extender receiver, HDBaseT displays or even another switcher. Control options for the switcher include automatic input selection, front-panel buttons, and compatibility with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP-based control systems.
The AT-UHD-SW-52ED is ideal for huddle rooms with HDMI sources, presentation spaces where two displays are needed, and an equipment rack where an HDBaseT switcher is needed to provide cost savings associated with routing audio, video, control, Ethernet, and power a long distance over a single category cable from the equipment rack. Offering first-of-its-kind display capabilities, the AT-UHD-SW-52ED 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-52ED 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-52ED 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-52ED 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-52ED 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 either S/PDIF or two-channel 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 the included 19” rack mount brackets. Two units can be mounted side-by-side. The AT-UHD-SW-52ED also supports the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform that integrates product configuration, management and updating. Specially designed for IP-controllable Atlona Products, the Atlona Management System reduces installation time and enables remote monitoring and support.
