The Atlona AT-UHD-CLSO-601 is an advanced six-input, multi-format switcher with built-in 4K scaling and mirrored HDBaseT and HDMI outputs. It simplifies classroom and small office system integration by providing four HDMI and two multi-function analog inputs. The CLSO-601 is designed to be the central component of an automated AV system. Automatic display control powers the display automatically whenever a source is connected or disconnected. Automatic input selection on the CLSO-601 works by sensing the presence of any video signal.
The CLSO-601 combines the benefits of a scaling switcher with automatic display control and automatic input selection, and the advantages of HDBaseT signal transmission to extend AV, power, control, and Ethernet over a single cable. The switcher enables input selection from the front panel, RS-232, or TCP/IP commands. The CLSO-601 is ideal for applications where multiple signals with different resolutions must be optimized for a display. Professional audio features such as a microphone input with 48 volt phantom power and ducking are also included, allowing the switcher to address a wide array of AV needs often encountered in classrooms, conference rooms, boardrooms, training rooms, and other presentation settings. In addition to automated input selection, the switcher can be controlled via the Atlona AT-ANC-108D button control panel.
Automatic Display Control
The CLSO-601 provides control to a display through TCP/IP, RS-232, or CEC*, without the need for a separate control system. This simplifies system design and integration while reducing costs. With automatic display control, the CLSO-601 can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the CLSO-601 forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system, and the savings incurred by automatic display shutdown provide a significant return on investment. The CLSO-601's display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system. A power button on the front panel can be used for manual on/off control of either the CLSO-601 or the display. Front panel volume controls are also available to control the display's internal audio, or another device with volume control, such as a DSP or another switcher.
The CLSO-601 automatically selects an input source based on detection of the 5 volt hot plug detect (HPD) signal, as well as active video. This ensures reliable auto-switching operation for all video sources, including DVRs, DisplayPort / Mini DisplayPort adapters, and other devices that always maintain the HPD line at the 5 volt "high" state but may not be delivering active video.
RS-232 Distribution to Sources and Destinations
A bi-directional RS-232 connection is available at every local input and output on the CLSO-601. Along with RS-232 signal distribution built into each HDBaseT link, the switcher has a powerful capability to route control signals to each source and display as a separate zone. The CLSO-601 lowers the cost of a third-party control system by allowing one with fewer RS-232 interfaces. For further integration convenience, the CLSO-601 can extend Ethernet from a control processor, and features IP to RS-232 translation for converting TCP/IP commands to RS-232. This provides the flexibility of extending TCP/IP or RS-232 control to the display over HDBaseT.
