Atlona Ships New Omega Scaling Receiver

News Image
Atlona has announced the introduction of a new versatile HDBaseT receiver in its Omega™ Series of switching, extension, and video processing solutions for modern workspaces and meeting environments.

Available immediately, the new AT-OME-RX31 combines dual HDBaseT receivers with three-input switching, 4K/UHD scaling and a local HDMI input in a space-efficient form factor.

Designed specifically for today's evolving meeting and gathering spaces, Atlona's Omega Series is a growing family of essential AV system components that provide simple, plug-and-play operation for presentations, video conferencing sessions, and team collaboration. The OME-RX31 builds on its sibling AT-OME-RX21 with two HDBaseT inputs that receive video up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling alongside embedded audio, control and Ethernet over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). It provides a uniquely simple system design solution for receiving sources from dual remote locations such as podiums, student pods, or a large meeting table.

Automatic input selection auto-switches between the two HDBaseT inputs and the local HDMI interface when sources are connected or removed, enabling effortless, "connect and present"operation for users. High-quality downscaling and upscaling with frame rate conversion preserve color and spatial detail when converting content between 4K and 1080p, making the OME-RX31perfect for presentation applications in AV environments that use a variety of UHD and HD displays, or for adapting UHD sources to feed 1080p video conferencing hardware codecs.

The OME-RX31 is ideal for use with Atlona's Omega or UHD-EX Series transmitters – plus Atlona AV presentation switchers with HDBaseT outputs – and can remotely power two HDBaseT transmitters. Additional integration and user convenience features include automated display control; audio de-embedding with five-band EQ; a dual-port Ethernet switch; contact closure ports for controlling a motorized screen or display lift; trigger I/O ports for an occupancy sensor; aspect ratio control; and test patterns. The OME-RX31 can be remotely managed through the Atlona Management System (AMS) or Atlona's ground-breaking Velocity™ IP-enabled AV control platform.

David Shamir, Director of Product Management, Atlona, said: "Many meeting and collaboration spaces require multiple locations where participants can connect their AV devices.

"With its twin HDBaseT receivers and local HDMI input, the compact and slim OME-RX31 fits neatly behind a display or above a projector, and lets integrators and end users bring multiple sources together while minimizing the equipment required."
