ATLONA 4K/UHD HDMI TO HDBASET DISTRIBUTION AMP

January 8, 2019 News

has announced the AT-UHD-CAT-2, the latest addition to the company’s powerful lineup of to amplifiers. Bringing all of the integration-friendly features of its larger UHD-CAT Series siblings to smaller AV applications, the new 1×2 UHD-CAT-2 is available immediately and will make its exhibition debut in stand 5-U120 at the upcoming Integrated Systems Europe () 2019 show (February 5-8 in Amsterdam).

“Our four-output and eight-output AT-UHD-CAT-8 distribution amplifiers have proven very popular for AV environments ranging from retail showrooms and classrooms to restaurants and entertainment venues, but we have received many requests from integrators and end-users for a model with only two outputs,” said Joshua Castro, Atlona product manager. “We’re pleased to meet this demand with the UHD-CAT-2, bringing the same rich feature set to smaller-scale, price-sensitive AV applications.”

The UHD-CAT-2 features one HDMI input, one HDMI pass-through output, and two HDBaseT outputs for distributing 1080p content up to 70m or /UHD material up to 40m over category cable. Each HDBaseT output delivers video, audio, remote PoE receiver power, and control signals – including RS-232 and IR, plus CEC for automatic display control – over a single cable, simplifying installation while minimising cable runs between AV sources, control systems and displays.

The new distribution supports 4K/UHD video at 60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma sampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant, enabling reliable distribution of copy-protected content. The UHD-CAT-2 is compatible with Atlona receiver options including the AT-UHD-EX-70C-RX, the AT-HDVS-200-RX HD receiver and scaler, and the recently-released AT-HDVS-SC-RX 4K/UHD receiver with advanced CrystalScale scaling technology.

The UHD-CAT-2 offers TCP/IP, RS-232 and IR control capabilities for flexible integration, and can be remotely configured, managed and monitored over a , or VPN with the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software or Atlona’s innovative, IP-based  AV control platform.

The UHD-CAT-2 is now shipping and is backed by Atlona’s 10-year limited product warranty, ensuring long-term reliability, performance and confidence for integrators and users.
