In response to escalating requests for HDR support in residential AV systems, Atlona
will launch its latest-generation HDMI matrix switcher, the AT-HDR-H2H-44M, at the
upcoming CEDIA show.
The HDR-H2H-44M is a compact 1 RU, 4×4 HDMI matrix switcher for high dynamic
range (HDR) formats. It is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports 4K/UHD video @ 60 Hz
with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, as well as HDMI data rates up to 18Gb/s. The HDR-H2H-
44M is ideal for residential as well as commercial applications with the latest, as well
as emerging, 4K/UHD and HDR sources and displays.
Ideal as a routing solution between HDR-capable AV sources and destinations, the
HDR-H2H-44M supports all video resolutions, audio formats, and colour space formats
encompassed in the HDMI 2.0b specification. The HDR-H2H-44M can be coupled with
one or more Atlona AT-HDR-EX-70-2PS HDMI extenders for an HDR distribution
solution that can easily support multi-room AV systems, including those with Ultra HD
Blu-ray players, streaming media players, and 4K-capable gaming consoles.
For residential integration flexibility, the HDR-H2H-44M includes EDID and HDCP
management features and can send CEC control independently to each output for
controlling individual displays. A TOSLINK digital audio output is paired with each
HDMI output for sending PCM or surrounds sound audio to an AV receiver or soundbar.
The HDR-H2H-44M can be controlled via Ethernet, RS-232, and IR, and includes a
handheld IR remote control.
“As more HDR content emerges, consumers will need adaptable and interoperable
systems that can easily distribute content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other
services, as well as Ultra HD Blu-ray and next-generation gaming consoles,’ said
Joshua Castro, product manager, Atlona. “With that comes the need to move that
content from these sources to multiple displays and audio systems, with the ability to
break-out audio only feeds. The AT-UHD-HD-44M provides that flexibility for the
consumer while giving custom installers a solution that is both easy to install and able
to support today’s demanding video requirements.’
The AT-UHD-HD-44M will begin shipping in Q4 2017, with its long-term reliability
backed by Atlona’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty.
