Atlona Technologies has introduced new 4×1 and 4×2 high-speed HDMI switchers to its newly branded Atlona Professional line of digital connectivity solutions.
Designed for home theater and multimedia systems with limited display input options, the switchers provide a high-digital-performance connection between four HDMI sources and one (AT-HD4-V41) or two (AT-HD4-V42) HDMI video displays without signal loss. The AT-HD4-V41 and AT-HD4-V42 are now available at MSRPs of $299.99 and $399.99, respectively.
To simplify installations and increase system reliability by reducing necessary wiring, the AT-HD4-V41 features an audio return channel and an HDMI 100-Mbps Ethernet port for bidirectional HDMI Ethernet channel (HEC) pass-through. The AT-HD4-V42 offers two audio return channels and HDMI Ethernet ports for multiple displays. The high-speed switchers provide support for 36-bit Deep Color at 1080p/60 Hz, HDCP, and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD master audio pass-through.
“We are excited to introduce these new switchers for the Atlona Professional line. For home multimedia systems without enough display input options, the AT-HD4-V41 is the perfect solution, while the AT-HD4-V42 is ideal for watching media on multiple displays without the need to move devices—such as home theaters with two mirrored video outputs,” said Mike Grubb, general manager of Atlona Professional. “And with features such as audio return channel and HEC pass-through, installers will save time in the field while providing an unmatched media experience for their customers.”
