Atlona to unveil HDMI/USB-C wall plate switcher for HDBaseT AV systems at InfoComm 2017

Atlona to unveil HDMI USB-C wall plate switcher for HDBaseT AV systems at InfoComm 2017Atlona has announced it will introduce its new AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP 2×1 wall plate switcher and HDBaseT transmitter at InfoComm 2017 at booth 3961.

Featuring both USB-C input support and HDMI connectivity, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP provides direct compatibility with new and emerging laptops, tablets and smart phones that have AV-capable USB-C ports. This eliminates the need for USB-C adapters and helps users quickly go live with presentations, lectures and other speaking events.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP enables video up to 4K/UHD at 60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling to be transmitted over 100m via easy-to-integrate category cable alongside embedded audio, control and Ethernet signals. The unit features one HDMI and one USB-C input, with HDCP 2.2 compliance permitting the transport of protected content.

“The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP combines first-of-its-kind USB-C support with many popular integration and user convenience features, delivering excellent value for AV applications and customers large and small,” said Atlona product manager Steve Kolta.

Auto-switching and integrated display control can automatically select between the two inputs and power up the display when a laptop or presentation device is connected. This enabled effortless and automated operation. Input selection, audio volume and display power can also be controlled via RS-232 or TCP/IP commands, enabling easy integration with third-party control systems.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP features a US one-gang, Decora-style form factor and includes interchangeable black and white wall plates and face plates. This allows discreet installation across a wide range of environments while simplifying ordering for integrators. Power is provided remotely via Power over Ethernet (PoE), saving time and integration costs, while power, input and link indicators enable easy visual confirmation of signal status.

The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP can serve as a core component of small AV deployments or as a remote input device for larger system applications. Paired with an HDBaseT receiver, it forms a compact yet comprehensive and cost-effective integration solution for classrooms, huddle rooms and meeting spaces. For larger-scale installations, the AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP can extend AV connectivity from a centralised, HDBaseT-input switcher to lecterns, floor boxes and remote wall locations, giving presenters easy and convenient access to the system.

“The AT-HDVS-210U-TX-WP flexible input connectivity and automated ease of use are ideal for addressing the growing BYOD trend across all types of enterprises and institutions, while its Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT output and extensive network-based control capabilities provide the tools that systems integrators need,” said Steve.
