Atlona releases new matrix switcher

Atlona releases new matrix switcher

New from Atlona is the AT-PRO3HD44M 4×4 HDMI matrix switcher. The unit allows HDMI signals to travel greater distances from sources such as Blu-ray players and satellite receivers — up to 70m over a single Cat 6a cable at 1080p and 1920×1200, or 60m with Cat 5e/6.

Featuring HDBaseT Lite technology, it supports uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and a number of control options, including RS232, IR, and direct front panel control.

It has four HDMI input ports that can be switched to any of four Cat5e/6/7 output ports, and at the end of the Cat 5e/6/7 runs AT-PRO3HDREC receivers (sold separately) are used to transfer the signals back to standard HDMI cables. And as the AT-PRO3HD44M is designed to provide users with PoE capabilities, no power supply is required for the receiver.

The switchers feature LPCM two-channel, Dolby 2.0, Dolby Digital 5.1, and DTS 5.1 digital audio format compatibility, and offer built-in digital audio S/PDIF loop outs to allow audio to be distributed easily to an AVR or amplifier.

Along with 3D signals, the unit is compatible with all third-party control systems, supporting bi-directional RS-232 and IR. Programmable memory presets for extended display identification data (EDID) are loadable to any source connected to the matrix, so any display can receive an optimum AV signal.

Stand: 7-N200
