The Atlona AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP features an HDMI input plus VGA input with 3.5mm audio connector and a two-gang, US two-gang wall plate. An optional face plate without buttons is also available (AT-HDVS-TX-WP-NB). Designed as a remote input device for the AT-UHD-CLSO-824 matrix switcher, the AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP combines the benefits of a switcher with built-in auto-switching and the advantages of long-distance HDBaseT signal extension over a single cable. HDMI signals up to 4K/UHD @ 60Hz with embedded audio, VGA input signals up to 1920x1200 video, and control signals can be extended up to 230 feet (70 meters). The switcher enables auto display on/off, auto-switching, along with other features. The switcher receives power from the AT-UHD-CLSO-824 using Power over Ethernet. The AT-HDVS-150-TX fits inside any 40 mm deep two-gang electrical box or mud ring and is ideal for long distance transmission and display control in corporate or educational settings using analog and digital sources.
Remote Input Extension
The Atlona AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP switcher expands the input capabilities of the AT-UHD-CLSO-824. Each remote switcher provides input access for up to two devices with controls for input selection and can control the power state of a display or projector when used with a third party control system. The HDVS series is designed to smooth the transition from analog to digital displays, allowing advanced HDMI display devices to be used with legacy VGA sources. The series also adds the simplicity and performance of HDBaseT technology to eliminate multiple cable runs and signal degradation that can occur with long transmission lines. Cost-effective and easy-to-terminate category cable provides additional integrator benefits.
Automatic Display Control
The AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP allows display control using RS-232 signals. When a switcher is integrated with a display, the AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP forces the display to power on automatically when a laptop is connected. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system and the savings incurred by auto-display shutdown provide a significant return on investment.
Many displays including projectors, commercial flat panel displays, and some consumer displays can be controlled using the RS-232 signal directly from the switcher. The switcher is able to send commands using RS-232 for automatic display control to compatible displays.
Automatic input selection on the AT-HDVS-150-TX-WP detects an active video signal, rather than looking for the 5-volt, hot plug signal. This means that devices such as DVRs, DisplayPort adaptors and other devices that keep the 5-volt hot, no longer trigger the automatic input selection. This gives far more reliable performance with these products.
