Atlona has begun shipping its AT-OME-MS52W 5×2 matrix switcher, combining wired and wireless AV input support, integrated USB extension and rich integration features to empower applications ranging from video conferencing to multi-participant presentations.
The OME-MS52W features HDMI, DisplayPort and USB-C inputs, alongside mirrored or matrixed HDBaseT and HDMI outputs with selectable switching modes. All wired AV inputs and the local HDMI output support High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats and 4K/60 4:4:4 video at HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps. Native, platform-based, wireless interfacing enables screen mirroring for iOS, Android, Mac, Chromebook and Windows devices without the need for a separate app, while moderator functionality, accessible through the OME-MS52W’s web interface enables an authorised user to preview, allow or block content from up to 16 wirelessly connected devices.
The switcher supports HDBaseT transport of video up to 4K/60 with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling alongside embedded audio, control, Ethernet and – when paired with a USB-capable Omega Series receiver such as the AT-OME-EX-RX or AT-OME-SR21 – USB data. Combined with USB 2.0 and USB-C interfaces for up to three host PCs and two peripheral devices, this USB extension capability makes t easy for the OME-MS52W to act as an integration solution for software video conferencing and unified communications applications such as Zoom, Teams and Cisco.
The OME-MS52W can automatically switch between inputs when sources are connected or removed, while automatic display control turns compatible monitors and projectors on or off without user intervention. Other integration features include audio embedding and de-embedding; motorised screen or display lift activation; and trigger I/O ports to power the system up or down based on occupancy sensing. The switcher can be remotely managed through the Atlona Management System or Atlona’s Velocity IP-enabled AV control platform, while TCP/IP and RS-232 support enable integration with third-party control systems.
“The OME-MS52W is a wired and wireless AV gateway plus so much more, providing a robust switching and USB extension solution for collaborative meeting spaces that is full-featured and flexible, yet easy to use and integrate,” said David Shamir, vice president of product management at Atlona. “We’re excited to now be delivering its powerful benefits to our customers.”
