In an effort to simplify complex, multi-point signal distribution architectures in residential and light commercial applications, Atlona will introduce its new OmniStream R-Type at the forthcoming CEDIA Expo.
CEDIA Expo is taking place 7-9 September at the San Diego Convention Center.
A streamlined version of its OmniStream AV over IP platform, OmniStream R-Type gives custom installers a simple way to support any number of sources and destinations over the home network using existing structured cable and an off-the-shelf network switch. This is especially useful for end users that have an imbalance of inputs to outputs – i.e. a minimal number of sources feeding a large number of destinations. The ability to use existing network infrastructure is an enormous benefit in large homes and light commercial facilities where architectural designs limit access to work behind walls and other barriers.
OmniStream R-Type provides additional value by supporting pristine video quality with extremely low-latency delivery in the home or small business, such as a sports bar or restaurant. OmniStream R-Type today supports HDR for formats all the way up to UHD@60 Hz, and is designed to meet all requirements for future 4K and UHD formats. OmniStream R-Type also provides a fully scalable platform to add new AV sources and destinations to existing installations.
To further simplify system integration and minimize costs, OmniStream R-Type can be powered using a PoE-equipped Gigabit switch or using a dedicated power supply. They are configured using the free Atlona Management System (AMS) 2.0 software, which serves as a centralised portal to monitor and manage an OmniStream R-Type system.
