Atlona ships Opus series of 4K HDR matrix switchers

atlona AT-OPUS-810Ms

Atlona is now shipping the Opus series of HDMI-to-HDBaseT matrix switchers. The Opus family of switchers – available in 4x6, 6x8 and 8x10 models – is suitable for a small-to-medium-sized multi-zone AV distribution application.

The AT-OPUS-46M (4x6), AT-OPUS-68M (6x8) and AT-OPUS-810M (8x10) matrix switchers all feature HDBaseT outputs and can transmit HDMI, Ethernet pass through, bidirectional IR, and RS-232 control signals to compatible receivers over distances of up to 330 feet (100 metres).

Opus matrix switchers can be paired with dedicated AT-OPUS-RX companion receivers or used in conjunction with the AT-JUNO-451-HDBT 4×1 HDMI and HDBaseT switcher to combine centralised and local AV switching. Each Opus switcher model offers flexible routing between an equal count of HDMI inputs and HDBaseT outputs, complemented by two HDMI outputs.

All three Opus matrix switchers comply with the HDCP 2.2 specification for protected content and support 4K/UHD video at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, as well as HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps. The switchers fully support all video resolutions, audio formats and colour spaces in the HDMI 2.0b specification and offer compatibility with high dynamic range (HDR) formats including 4K HDR10 at 60 Hz and Dolby Vision, as well as HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for future 60p HDR broadcast services. VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) enables HDR and 4K/60 4:4:4 signal delivery over HDBaseT.

Opus matrix switchers can be controlled via the included IR remote, front-panel controls or the units’ integrated graphical web interface. The new switchers can be managed and configured via Atlona’s IP-based, cloud-enabled Velocity AV control platform or the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software, while TCP/IP and RS-232 control capabilities enable integration with third-party control systems. OPUS-RX receivers are remotely powered over Ethernet (PoE) and can transport IR control signals bi-directionally, enabling remote IR control of source devices from OPUS-RX locations.
