Sunnyvale, CA, United States, 2012/10/23 - Switcher Supports High-Speed HDMI and Digital Multi-Channel Audio Switching and Distribution Across Four Zones - Atlona.com.
Atlona® today announced that the company is now shipping its new AT-H2H-44M 4x4 HDMI® matrix switcher. A comprehensive signal routing switch that supports high-speed HDMI and uncompressed digital multi-channel audio switching and distribution across four zones, the AT-H2H-44M boasts unique features including advanced EDID management, S/PDIF audio loop outs, multiple control interfaces, in-field upgradable firmware, and ARC (Audio Return Channel).
The AT-H2H-44M’s advanced EDID management feature ensures compatibility across multiple display types, sends communication between sources and displays, and automatically provides a compatible EDID at start up. The unit also features an EDID learning function that can be customized for any connected component such as AVR’s, Set-top-Boxes and TV’s. S/PDIF port loop outs allow audio distribution to zone amplifiers or A/V receivers within a rack, while the video signal is routed via the HDMI output to the zone display. S/PDIF output supports up to Dolby® Digital and DTS 5.1 Master Audio pass through digital formats.
With multiple control interfaces such as RS-232, IR, and the front panel – with future updates for TCP/IP through the unit’s Ethernet port – this 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher was developed with whole-home media control and light professional needs in mind. In addition, the AT-H2H-44M features a field-serviceable firmware port that allows for quick and easy upgrades.
