Atlona has begun shipping the AT-OME-MS52W 5×2 matrix switcher. The OME-MS52W features HDMI, DisplayPort and USB-C inputs alongside mirrored or matrixed HDBaseT and HDMI outputs with selectable switching modes. All wired AV inputs and the local HDMI output support High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats and 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) video at HDMI data rates up to 18 gigabits per second. Native, platform-based, wireless interfacing enables screen mirroring for iOS, Android, Mac, Chromebook and Windows devices without the need for a separate app, while moderator functionality, accessible through the OME-MS52W’s web interface enables an authorized user to preview, allow or block content from up to 16 wirelessly connected devices.
The OME-MS52W supports HDBaseT transport of video up to 4K@60Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling alongside embedded audio, control, Ethernet and — when paired with a USB-capable Omega Series receiver such as the AT-OME-EX-RX or AT-OME-SR21 — USB data. Combined with USB 2.0 and USB-C interfaces for up to three host PCs and two peripheral devices, this USB extension capability makes the OME-MS52W an ideal integration solution for software videoconferencing and unified communications applications including Zoom, Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, BlueJeans and GoToMeeting.
The OME-MS52W can automatically switch between inputs when sources are connected or removed, while automatic display control turns compatible monitors and projectors on or off without user intervention. Other integration features include audio embedding and de-embedding; motorized screen or display lift activation; and trigger I/O ports to power the system up or down based on occupancy sensing. The switcher can be remotely managed through the Atlona Management System or Atlona’s innovative Velocity IP-enabled AV control platform, while TCP/IP and RS-232 support enable integration with third-party control systems.
