Atlona_Omega_Family

Atlona has unveiled the Omega series of switching, extension, and video processing products for presentation and collaboration.

The series launches with three products: the AT-OME-TX21-WP-E wallplate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter, AT-OME-ST31 switcher and transmitter and AT-OME-SW32 matrix switcher.
 
First up is the company’s two-input, 4K EU/UK wallplate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter, the AT-OME-TX21-WP-E. It has one HDMI input, one USB-C input and one HDBaseT output. The PoE-powered unit offers a two-gang form factor and ships with interchangeable EU and UK trim kits, each in black or white. It is suitable as a core component of a small AV deployment or for providing convenient AV connectivity in lecterns, floor boxes and remote wall locations for larger-scale installations. 
 
The AT-OME-ST31 is a global 3x1, 4K switcher and HDBaseT transmitter with two HDMI inputs, one USB-C input, and two mirrored outputs – one HDMI, and one HDBaseT for transmitting video, embedded audio and control signals up to 100 metres over category cable. Stereo analogue audio embedding replaces the HDMI or USB-C input audio, allowing simple integration of sound from PCs or audio-only sources. The unit can be integrated with furniture in meeting rooms, auditoriums and open presentation spaces, and when installed below a meeting table, Atlona’s Pocket 3H (AT-PKT-3H) cable access enclosure provides tabletop connectivity. 
 
Both products will be joined by the AT-OME-SW32, which begins shipping early November. It is a global 4K HDR, 3x2 matrix switcher featuring two HDMI inputs and one USB-C input, the latter enabling direct connectivity for laptops and mobile devices with AV-capable USB-C ports. The unit’s two HDMI outputs can be flexibly configured with a choice of three mirrored and matrix switching modes, while balanced analogue audio output provides de-embedded stereo audio. It can be mounted under a conference table in smaller meeting spaces and is suitable for serving dual displays; sub-switching into a central AV-over-IP system such as Atlona’s OmniStream platform; and videoconferencing. 
 
All three products support 4K/UHD at 60Hz. All inputs and the HDMI outputs on the OME-SW32 and OME-ST31 support 4K HDR and 4K/60 with 4:4:4 chroma sampling at HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps, while the OME-TX-21-WP-E and the HDBaseT output of the OME-ST31 support 4K/60 at 4:2:0. 

The OME-SW32 and OME-ST31 can down-convert 4K inputs to 1080 on one HDMI output if desired, making them suitable for applications that combine 4K and HD sources and displays. For HDBaseT transport, the OME-ST-31 and OME-TX21-WP-E can be combined with Atlona’s AT-HDVS200-RX or AT-HDVS-SC-RX scaling receivers, AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX-PSE receiver or HDBaseT-input switchers.

All three models feature automatic input selection and display control; HDCP 2.2 compliance; and TCP/IP and RS-232 control. Remote management of the Omega series products is available through the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) and Atlona’s Velocity IP-based AV control platform.
