Atlona Launches Three New Offerings To Its Omega Series Of Solutions

News Image
Atlona has announced three new offerings in its Omega™ Series of switching, extension, and video processing solutions for modern AV communications and collaboration.

The AT-OME-PS62 6x2 matrix switcher delivers exceptional performance and value for 4K/UHD presentation and conferencing applications in medium-to-large AV environments, while the AT-OME-EX-TX-WP and AT-OME-EX-TX-WP-E wallplate transmitters provide discreet, cost-effective AV interfacing for North American and European installations, respectively. The new products will be demonstrated in the Atlona booth (number 3012) at InfoComm 2019, taking place June 12-14 in Orlando, Florida. Register for a free pass using code ATL175.

Leading the latest wave of Omega products is the OME-PS62, a 6x2 matrix presentation switcher featuring three HDMI inputs and two HDBaseT inputs alongside a USB-C AV input for direct, BYOD-friendly interfacing with the latest mobile devices and laptops. The USB-C interface also can be used for data connectivity to the OME-PS62’s integrated USB 2.0 hub, as well as charging the connected device. The switcher features HDBaseT and HDMI outputs, along with 4K/60 4:4:4 capability for all inputs and the HDMI output, plus USB extension over HDBaseT. Meanwhile, high-quality, 4K downscaling and upscaling on the unit’s HDMI output preserve color and spatial detail when converting content between 4K and 1080p for mixed-format presentation and display applications.

The OME-PS62's integrated USB extension capabilities combine with compatible Omega Series transmitters and receivers to address the challenge of connecting between USB devices at remote locations, forming an ideal integration solution for use cases including software video conferencing and interactive displays. Additional integration convenience features include auto-switching, audio embedding and de-embedding; audio output matrix mixing; display control; microphone input with mixing and ducking; internal video test patterns for setup and troubleshooting; a customizable welcome splash screen; and the ability to remotely power Atlona HDBaseT devices via PoE.

Transporting 4K/UHD video, embedded audio, control and USB via HDBaseT to compatible receivers and switchers, the new OME-EX-TX-WP and OME-EX-TX-WP-E wallplate transmitters enable convenient HDMI and USB data connectivity on walls, in furniture or in floor boxes for presenters and meeting participants.

The OME-EX-TX-WP features a U.S. one-gang form factor and ships with interchangeable black and white trim kits, allowing inconspicuous installation while simplifying ordering for integrators. The OME-EX-TX-WP-E offers similar benefits for commercial installations in Europe, with a two-gang enclosure and swappable EU and UK faceplates and brackets. Both models can be powered via PoE from Atlona Omega receivers and switchers and, like the OME-PS62, can be remotely managed with the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software.

These new introductions join other recently-unveiled Omega Series products in redefining AV for presentation and collaboration in today’s evolving audio-visual environments and meeting spaces. Recent unveilings of the Omega family also include:

• AT-OME-EX-KIT – 4K, HDBaseT transmitter/receiver kit for HDMI and USB extension
• AT-OME-SR21 – HDBaseT receiver and scaler with USB and additional local HDMI input
• AT-OME-ST31 – 3x1, 4K switcher and HDBaseT transmitter with audio embedding
• AT-OME-ST31A – 3x1, 4K switcher and HDBaseT transmitter with audio de-embedding
• AT-OME-SW32 – 3x2, 4K HDR matrix switcher with HDMI and USB-C inputs
• AT-OME-TX21-WP-E – two-input EU/UK wallplate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter.
