Atlona Ships Eight-Output 4K/UHD Distribution Amplifier
Atlona, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for AV systems, announced it is now shipping its eight-output 4K/UHD distribution amplifier that features HDMI-to-HDBaseT distribution of 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz/4:2:0 video, HDBaseT transmission up to 70 meters, HDCP 2.2 support, and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The AT-UHD-CAT-8 also provides EDID management and advanced display control functions through Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) for use with home TVs.
“This new eight-channel DA manages long distance distribution of protected 4K/UHD content and enables full control of remote displays without a separate control system,” said Joshua Castro, Atlona product manager. “These features, and PoE to power remote HDBaseT receivers, greatly simplify installation and improve system reliability. Having CEC means the DA’s remote control features will work with many of the latest digital TVs now available.”
In addition to HDBaseT outputs, the new DA provides an HDMI output for signal pass-through and daisy-chaining, and it is equipped with one IR and RS-232 connection for the amp as well as one for each output channel.
