Atlona to Unveil HDMI/USB-C Wall Plate Switcher for HDBaseT

The two-input AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP combines flexible connectivity for emerging devices with powerful integration features and compact, inconspicuous design.

Adding to it HDVS-200 Series of HDBaseT AV solutions, Atlona will introduce its new AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP 2×1 wallplate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter at InfoComm 2017 this week.

Featuring USB-C input support and HDMI connectivity, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP provides direct compatibility with new and emerging laptops, tablets, and smartphones that have AV-capable USB-C ports. This eliminates the need for USB-C adapters, and helps users quickly go live with presentations, lectures, and other speaking events.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP enables video up to 4K/UHD at 60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling to be transmitted over 328 feet (100 meters) via easy-to-integrate category cable alongside embedded audio, control and Ethernet signals. The unit features one HDMI and one USB-C input, with HDCP 2.2 compliance permitting the transport of protected content.

Auto-switching and integrated display control automatically select between the two inputs and power up the display when a laptop or presentation device is connected, enabling automated operation. Input selection, audio volume, and display power can also be controlled via RS-232 or TCP/IP commands, enabling easy integration with third-party control systems.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP features a U.S., one-gang, Decora-style form factor and includes interchangeable black and white wall plates and face plates, allowing discreet installation across a wide range of environments while simplifying ordering for integrators. Power is provided remotely via Power over Ethernet (PoE), saving time and integration costs, while power, input, and link indicators enable easy visual confirmation of signal status.

Paired with an HDBaseT receiver such as Atlona’s AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX-PSE or the AT-HDVS-200-RX receiver and scaler, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP forms a compact integration solution for classrooms, huddle rooms, and meeting spaces. For larger installations, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP can extend AV connectivity from a centralized, HDBaseT-input switcher to lecterns, floor boxes, and remote wall locations.

The wall plate switcher and transmitter can be remotely configured and managed over a network with the free Atlona Management System (AMS) software, streamlining installation and enabling centralized management of multiple Atlona products throughout a facility.

“The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP combines first-of-its-kind USB-C support with many popular integration and user convenience features, delivering excellent value for AV applications and customers large and small,” said Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona. “Its flexible input connectivity and automated ease of use are ideal for addressing the growing BYOD trend across all types of enterprises and institutions, while its Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT output and extensive network-based control capabilities provide the tools that systems integrators need.”

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP will be available in Q4 at a suggested retail price of $689.99, and will include Atlona’s 10-year limited product warranty.
