Incorporating audio mixing and amplification alongside AV switching and USB routing for learning and meeting spaces, Atlona has expanded its Omega Series with the AT-OME-CS31-SA (three HDMI inputs) and the AT-OME-CS31-SA-HDBT (one HDBaseT input and two HDMI inputs) 3x1 switchers. While primarily sharing the same feature set, the switchers differ in AV switching and USB capabilities. The OME-CS31-SA is built for local switching applications that place its inputs close to the switcher and display, such as a classroom where the instructor’s desk is positioned near the front wall. The OME-CS31-SA-HDBT accommodates remote and local AV switching and is more effective when an input is further from the switcher, such as an instructor’s lectern in the room or if the switcher is mounted by a projector. The remote input of the OME-CS31-SA-HDBT supports extension of HDMI, Ethernet, power, control and USB 2.0 data up to 100m.

Boasting audio ducking which lowers programme audio levels when the instructor speaks into a microphone, as well as the ability to mute by contact closure or automatically when a school public address announcement is detected, both models are designed to ensure lesson material and announcements are heard clearly. Other audio capabilities include an onboard mixer for combining three line inputs, de-embedded HDMI and USB audio, as well as two 25W amplifier and line level outputs. Both support switching between two host devices and include a four-port hub for connecting cameras, speakerphones, interactive displays or other peripherals. Automatic display control and auto-switching allow the automation of system operation over Ethernet, serial and trigger ports, or they can be integrated into environments with an Atlona Velocity control system.

In addition, Atlona has introduced two accessories to help installers establish connectivity and simplify installations. The Atlona LinkConnect AT-LC-UC2UC-5M is a 5m USB-C to USB-C active cable which features a locking USB-C connector and supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 with data rates up to 10Gbps, DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode with high-resolution video up to 8K@60Hz and 60W pass-through for charging laptops. The company is also offering a mounting accessory for Omega wallplate transmitters. The AT-OME-WP-BKT is designed for surface-mount installation, avoiding the need for a tabletop enclosure.
