Atlona outlines Omega series of presentation and collaboration products
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.
