The Atlona AT-UHD-CLSO-601 is an advanced six-input multi-format switcher with built-in 4K scaling and mirrored HDBaseT and HDMI outputs. It simplifies classroom and small office system integration by providing four HDMI and two multifunction analog inputs to enable the use of both new and legacy sources with HDMI displays.
The AT-UHD-CLSO-601 can be the central component of an automated AV system. Automatic display control turns on the display automatically whenever a source is connected. When the source is removed the display is turned off. Volume is controlled by using the front panel buttons. Automatic input selection on the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 works by sensing the presence of any video signal. With automatic input selection manual control systems can be eliminated.
The AT-UHD-CLSO-601 combines the benefits of a switcher and the advantages of Ethernet enabled HDBaseT signal transmission over a single cable. The switcher enables input selection from the front panel RS-232 or TCP/IP commands. Configuration maintenance and updates are performed using Atlona’s WebGUI AMS IP management system or OSD. Set-up options include HDCP status variable preferred input resolutions output resolution plus control of brightness contrast saturation hue and sharpness. The AT-UHD-CLSO-601 is ideal for applications where multiple signals with different resolutions must be optimized for a display. Professional audio features such as a microphone input with 48-volt phantom power and ducking are also included allowing the switcher to address a wide array of AV switching and processing needs often encountered in classrooms conference rooms boardrooms training rooms and other presentation settings. In addition to automated input selection the switcher can be controlled via the Atlona AT-ANC-108D 8-Button Network Control Panel.
Automatic Display Control
Offering first-of-its-kind display capabilities the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 allows display control using CEC TCP/IP or RS-232 signals. This means that many more types of displays can be controlled costs are reduced and that wiring is simplified. In a commercial setting when a switcher is integrated with a display the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 forces the display to power on automatically when a laptop is connected. At the end of the presentation when the presenter disconnects the laptop the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system and the savings incurred by auto-display shutdown provide a significant return on investment.
CEC•The AT-UHD-CLSO-601 features Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) providing simplified display control for a significant reduction in the cost of the display (compared to an RS-232 controlled display). CEC is a communication channel incorporated in the HDMI specification allowing connected devices to control each other.
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 AT-UHD-CLSO-601 not only connects to the switcher it also extends out the HDBaseT connection through an internal hub. A connected router is required to manage IP addresses.
RS-232• Many displays including projectors commercial flat panel displays and some consumer displays can be controlled using the RS-232 signal directly from the switcher. The scaler is able to send commands using RS-232 for automatic display control to compatible displays.
FLEXIBLE POWER BUTTON7bull; The power button on the front panel can be set to either turn the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 on/off or it can be set to control the attached display. In addition to using the front panel power button display on/off commands can be triggered automatically based on presence of video signals or by a third-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 analog audio output of the AT-UHD-CLSO-601 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.
