Atlona has announced the debut of the AT-UHD-CLSO-840, a versatile eight-input, four-output 4K HDMI and HDBaseT matrix switcher built for video conferencing, multi-screen presentations and divisible room installations.
The CLSO-840 offers both local and remote inputs and outputs for flexibility across AV formats and connectivity options, providing a powerful matrix solution for classroom, corporate and hospitality environments.
The new matrix is equipped with five HDMI and three HDBaseT inputs, two HDMI and two HDBaseT outputs. It is envisioned for use in a variety of meeting room settings, such as video conferencing suites requiring at least three independent outputs for connections to displays and a conferencing codec. The CLSO-840 easily integrates into an audio system with DSP, through an independent 8×4 audio matrix that routes de-embedded HDMI audio to analogue audio outputs, with gain control and EQ also available. There are also four analogue audio inputs, each dedicated to embedding content onto a corresponding video output.
Other features on the CLSO-840 include PoE on the HDBaseT inputs and outputs, allowing use of Atlona UHD-EX Series or HDVS-200 Series HDBaseT transmitters and receivers, and eliminating the need for separate power supplies for remote components. All HDBaseT inputs and outputs allow transmission distances up to 100m.
The new matrix includes Ethernet and RS-232 connections for third-party control. It can extend Ethernet from a control processor, and features IP to RS-232 translation for converting TCP/IP commands to RS-232. This provides the flexibility of extending TCP/IP or RS-232 control to remote devices over HDBaseT.
