The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-52ED is a 5×1 4K/UHD HDMI switcher with HDMI and HDBaseT outputs balanced audio outputs auto-switching and advanced automatic display control capability. The switcher supports 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:2:0 color offers 3D pass-through and 10.2 Gbps bandwidth. With front-panel buttons and IR control it can be a standalone switcher. It transmits AV signals along with Ethernet power and control over a single cable to displays up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher to PoE-powered HDBaseT receivers or HDBaseT displays. Control options include auto-switching front-panel buttons and compatibility with IR RS-232 or TCP/IP-based control systems. Advanced features also include a web-based GUI for easy set-up and management of EDID HDCP and display control. The switcher offers audio de-embedding of PCM audio over HDMI to either S/PDIF or two-channel analog audio outputs. The switcher is a cost-effective product for professional integration featuring a compact 1U half-rack width enclosure that is easily installed with the included 19” rack mount brackets. Two units can be mounted side-by-side.
Advanced Display Control
Offering first-of-its-kind display capabilities the AT-UHD-SW-52ED allows display control using either TCP/IP or RS-232 signals. This means that many more types of displays can be controlled and that wiring is simplified.
TCP/IP – The TCP/IP signal can be transmitted either through an independent LAN connection or through the HDBaseT connection when connected to an AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX receiver which allows Ethernet over HDBaseT. The LAN port on the SW-52ED not only connects to the SW-52ED it also extends out the HDBaseT connection through an internal hub. A connected router is required to manage IP addresses.
Flexible Power Button – The power button on the front panel can be set to either turn the SW-52ED on/off or it can be set to control the attached display. The Display On/Off commands can be triggered using the power button on the front panel triggered automatically based on presence of video signals or triggered by a 3rd party control system using either TCP/IP RS-232 or IR signals.
Switcher or Display Volume Control – Volume control buttons on the front panel can control either the volume out of the SW-52ED or they can be set to control the volume of any device that allows volume control using TCP/IP or RS-232 such as a flat panel display DSP or another switcher. This gives great flexibility to the system design.
Multiple Points of Control – Since all these commands can be sent using TCP/IP it becomes simple to have multiple control points in a larger system. The SW-52ED could be used as an input device for an AT-UHD-CLSO-824 and the buttons would then be able to manage a variety of functions such as “Show me” and volume.
Reliable Auto-Switching – Auto-switching on the AT-UHD-SW-52ED works by sensing the presence of any video signal not the 5-volt hot plug signal. This means that devices such as DVRs DisplayPort adaptors and other devices that keep the 5 volt hot no longer trigger the auto-switch. This gives far more reliable performance with these products.
VGA Inputs? Add the AT-HD-SC-500 – If VGA inputs are required with the AT-UHD-SW-52ED we recommend the AT-HD-SC-500 scaler. With auto switching two HDMI inputs and a VGA input it brings scaling to the VGA source without affecting the HDMI signals. Resolution of the HDMI signals can be controlled using the EDID settings on the SW-52ED.
Mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT Outputs – The AT-UHD-SW-52ED adds 4K/UHD performance and extended distance HDBaseT transmission to Atlona’s HDMI small switcher family for a unique solution for professional integration applications. Internal HDBaseT and video distribution eliminate the need for additional system components while PoE eliminates the need for a power supply for the receiver. As an alternative with an HDBaseT-capable display an HDBaseT receiver isn’t required reducing system complexity and saving integrators time and money.
The AT-UHD-SW-52ED is designed for use in:
• Huddle Rooms with DisplayPort sources. Enables auto-switch and auto-display control.
• Presentation spaces where two displays are needed – one at the presenter’s podium and the other placed up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher.
• An equipment rack where an easy-to-integrate HDBaseT switcher is needed to provide cost savings associated with routing audio video control Ethernet and power a long distance over a single category cable from the equipment rack.
