Atlona Expands Range Of HDR AV Integration Solutions

News Image
Atlona has introduced its brand new 8x8 HDMI matrix switcher for 4K/UHD and HDR content.

The AT-HDR-H2H-88MA switcher will be showcased at InfoComm at booth C3576, June 02-08.

It builds on the features of the previous 4x4 model with significantly expanded input and output capacity for larger-scale applications. Support for all video resolutions, audio formats, and color spaces in the HDMI 2.0b specification provides compatibility with state-of-the-art 4K/UHD and HDR sources and displays – as well as future HDR broadcast services – while HDCP 2.2 compliance enables switching of protected content.

The switcher supports 4K/UHD video at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling and HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps. Fast, blink-free switching enables uninterrupted viewing experiences by eliminating long wait times and visible display artifacts. Stereo, unbalanced audio outputs are paired with each HDMI input, enabling two-channel PCM audio to be de-embedded and sent to whole-house or commercial audio systems.

The HDR-H2H-88MA offers a wealth of easy-to-use configuration and control methods, starting with its intuitive front-panel buttons and built-in LCD menu display. An integrated web interface enables fast, menu-based configuration of the switcher from a PC or mobile device, while compatibility with the free Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software and Atlona Velocity™ AV control platform allows comprehensive remote configuration, control and monitoring over IP networks. The HDR-H2H-88MA can also be controlled via RS-232 or the included handheld IR remote.

The matrix switcher integrates seamlessly with one or more Atlona AT-HDR-EX-70-2PS HDMI extenders to provide robust, multi-room, 4K signal distribution for environments ranging from HDR-enhanced home theaters to retail showrooms and detail-intensive professional AV applications. The switcher's rich integration features include EDID and HDCP management functionality, as well as the ability to send CEC signals independently to each HDMI output for controlling individual target displays.

"Our 4x4 HDR-H2H-44M has been very popular with systems integrators and end-users, and we're excited to now offer similar benefits in an 8x8 matrix switcher for those with larger distribution needs," said Joshua Castro, product manager, Atlona. "The HDR-H2H-88MA's flexible format support lets users take full advantage of HDR-enhanced content, while its rich integration capabilities allow seamless incorporation into any environment or system design."
