Atlona brings new HDR-compatible devices to market21 April 2017
Atlona is now shipping its JunoX Series switcher and Rondo Series video distribution amplifiers. The three products are part of the company’s strategy to address emerging 4K and HDR requirements in AV systems.
The JunoX Series (AT-JUNO-451) is a 4×1 HDMI switcher ideal for applications requiring the latest generation of 4K/UHD and HDR sources and displays. It is compatible with all video resolutions, audio formats, and colour space formats supported in the HDMI 2.0a specification, and passes metadata for HDR content.
The JunoX 451 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and features automatic input switching. It also supports HDMI Audio Return Channel for receiving digital audio from a television, and includes a TOSLINK digital audio output for sending this audio to an AV receiver or soundbar.
The Rondo 442 (AT-RON-442) and Rondo 444 (AT-RON-444) (pictured) provide two-output and four-output distribution amplifier options, respectively, for commercial and residential environments. Like the JunoX 451 switcher, both Rondo devices are compatible with all video resolutions, audio formats, and colour space formats supported in the HDMI 2.0a specification, and can pass metadata for HDR content. Both models are also HDCP 2.2 compliant.
Both offer significant value to systems integrators and offer EDID management features to ensure compatibility between source and sink devices. The models also have front panel LED indicators for power and signal status to simplify setup and troubleshooting. In addition, installers can cascade up to eight units without compromising performance, ensuring that system designs and configurations can easily be adapted or modified.
The JunoX 451 provides EDID management features and can be controlled via Ethernet, RS-232, and IR, including the handheld IR remote control with which it is sold. It is configured and managed remotely by the free Atlona Management System (AMS).
“The availability of these products offer a substantial efficiency boost to commercial and residential integrators looking for easy-to-install, easy-to-use switching and distribution solutions that deliver high reliability with long-term value,” said Joshua Castro, Atlona product manager. “All three products represent important components of our HDR-compatible portfolio, now and moving forward.”
