Atlona unveils new HDBaseT extender kit

AT-HDVS-150-WP-KIT combines two-input wall plate switching, HDBaseT signal transport, scaling and flexible integration features for classrooms, huddle rooms and small meeting spaces

Atlona has announced a new HDBaseT extender kit that pairs two of its most popular HDVS Series solutions for huddle rooms and small meeting spaces. The AT-HDVS-150-WP-KIT combines the AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP two-input wallplate switcher with the AT-HDVS-150-RX scaling receiver to provide HDMI and VGA auto-switching, integrated display control and HDBaseT signal transport in a convenient package that simplifies ordering for integrators and system designers.

The HDVS-150-WP-KIT is targeted at corporate and education environments and transports video signals up to 1080p or 1,920 x 1,200 alongside embedded audio, power and control across distances reaching 70m over standard category cable. The HDVS-150-TX-WP switcher/transmitter features one HDMI input and one VGA input with corresponding analogue audio, automatically selecting between the two interfaces and powering on or off compatible displays when a video source is connected or removed.

The HDVS-150-TX-WP comes in a US two-gang wallplate form factor, with power supplied remotely by the accompanying, locally powered HDVS-150-RX receiver. Front-panel input selection and display on/off buttons facilitate simple manual operation.

At the receiving end of the chain, the scaling capabilities of the HDVS-150-RX automatically transform incoming signals to the native resolution of an HDMI-connected display. Two-channel audio de-embedding with stereo analogue outputs enables easy integration with external amplifiers and audio systems. Front-panel controls allow access to flexible configuration options through intuitive on-screen menus displayed via the receiver’s HDMI output.

“While the HDVS-150-TX-WP and HDVS-150-RX have proven immensely popular with systems integrators and end users, we are constantly striving to make it even easier for our channel partners and customers to purchase and specify our products,” said David Shamir, director of product management, Atlona. “As with our very popular HDVS-150-KIT, the new HDVS-150-WP-KIT makes it simple for them to take advantage of the powerful functional synergies and exceptional value of the transmitter and receiver in one convenient SKU.”

The HDVS-150-WP-KIT is available immediately through Atlona’s network of authorised channel partners.
