Atlona unveils Opus Series of 4K HDR matrix switchers
Atlona has announced its Opus series of HDMI to HDBaseT matrix switchers and receiver for 4K HDR signal distribution and extension. This series will include the AT-OPUS-46M, AT-OPUS-68M and AT-OPUS-810M, and each will include HDBaseT outputs to transmit HDMI, Ethernet, bidirectional IR and RS-232 control signals up to 330 feet, according to a press release.
These switchers are HDCP 2.2 compliant and can support 4K video at 60 Hertz with 4:4:4 Chroma sampling. They also come with VESA display stream compression to enable HDR and 4K extension over HDBaseT with no latency.
The series also includes the AT-OPUS-RX receiver, which is remotely powered over Ethernet and can interface with IR, RS-232 ad Ethernet control for displays. It is also compatible with all video resolutions, audio formats and color space formats in the HDMI 2.0b specification.
"With many new high dynamic range televisions on the market, integrators are facing customer demands for A/V systems that support these formats, or for their current systems to be upgraded to HDR capability," Joshua Castro, product manager, Atlona, said in the release. "The Opus Series is the next stage in the evolution of our HDMI-to-HDBaseT matrix switcher product line for integrators looking to take on the challenge of building a video distribution system to accommodate 4K/UHD video at a 60 Hz frame rate with 4:4:4 Chroma sampling."
