Atlona launches standalone display controller
Atlona is now shipping the 4K/UHD-ready AT-DISP-CTRL compact display controller that automates smaller meeting spaces.
The DISP-CTRL detects connection of a source device with an active signal, and automatically sends a control command to power the display. The controller automatically changes the display power state based on HDMI device connection or disconnection, enabling display control, volume control and input selection without a remote control. Programmable display control modes can power off displays after a specified period of inactivity or following a manual disconnection. Adjustable lamp cool down modes are available.
The DISP-CTRL can deliver pre-stored or user-programmed display control commands through TCP/IP, RS-232, IR or CEC. Additionally, the controller includes EDID and HDCP management features, and can be powered locally or through Power over Ethernet (PoE). The DISP-CTRL is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports 4K/UHD video at 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, as well as HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps.
In addition to standalone functionality, the DISP-CTRL can be used in conjunction with an HDMI switcher to control a greater number of AV sources. For additional control power, the DISP-CTRL offers a selection of display drivers from Atlona’s Velocity AV control system database, enabling menu-based configuration of device settings, display device driver selection, and the ability to program control commands. The DISP-CTRL has two Ethernet ports to support simultaneous LAN access and IP display control.
