Atlona ships Omega scaling receiver with HDMI and dual HDBaseT inputs

Atlona AT-OME-RX31

Atlona has introduced an HDBaseT receiver in its Omega Series of switching, extension, and video processing products for modern workspaces and meeting environments.

Available immediately, the AT-OME-RX31 combines dual HDBaseT receivers with three-input switching, 4K/UHD scaling and a local HDMI input.

Designed specifically for today’s meeting and gathering spaces, Atlona’s Omega Series is for presentations, video conferencing sessions, and team collaboration. The OME-RX31 builds on its sibling AT-OME-RX21 with two HDBaseT inputs that receive video up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling alongside embedded audio, control and Ethernet over distances up to 330 feet (100 metres). It provides a solution for receiving sources from dual remote locations such as podiums, student pods, or a large meeting table.

Automatic input selection auto-switches between the two HDBaseT inputs and the local HDMI interface when sources are connected or removed, enabling “connect and present” operation for users. High-quality downscaling and upscaling with frame rate conversion preserve colour and spatial detail when converting content between 4K and 1080p, making the OME-RX31 suitable for presentation applications in AV environments that use a variety of UHD and HD displays, or for adapting UHD sources to feed 1080p video conferencing hardware codecs.

The OME-RX31 is ideal for use with Atlona’s Omega or UHD-EX Series transmitters – plus Atlona AV presentation switchers with HDBaseT outputs – and can remotely power two HDBaseT transmitters.

Additional integration and user convenience features include automated display control; audio de-embedding with five-band EQ; a dual-port Ethernet switch; contact closure ports for controlling a motorised screen or display lift; trigger I/O ports for an occupancy sensor; aspect ratio control; and test patterns. The OME-RX31 can be remotely managed through the Atlona Management System (AMS) or Atlona’s Velocity IP-enabled AV control platform.
