Extending its line of 4K matrix switchers suitable for commercial and residential use, Atlona has introduced two HDMI-to-HDMI switchers: the AT-UHD-H2H-88M, an 8X8 matrix, and the 4X4 AT-UHD-H2H-44M. Both are rated for 4K/UHD video @ 60 Hz and support content with HDCP 2.2 copy protection. Created with integrators in mind, both switchers also support multiple modes of remote control and can be configured via web browser. Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 8.26.59 AM“With these matrixes, system owners can be assured that the matrix at the heart of their system will not need to be replaced as newer standards for 4K/UHD come about,” says Steve Heintz, senior product manager at Atlona. “These are the matrixes integrators want to be installing to handle whatever content their customers decide to play and to operate with their preferred control system.” Ideal for professional HDMI signal routing where a number of AV sources must be shared among four or more zones, the matrixes allow any or all input sources to be distributed simultaneously to any or all output zones.  Source and zone selection can be made via front panel controls, handheld remote, or via virtually any 3rd-party control system. Both the UHD-H2H-88M and the UHD-H2H-44M offer an integrated web server with web GUI which provides HDCP/EDID reporting, system configuration, and device status plus I/O routing from tablets, smart phones or PCs. To reduce integration time and cost, both matrixes provide TCP/IP, RS-232, and IR connections for the control system interface. According to Atlona, both matrixes provide fast, flicker-free switching between sources with no signal loss to other zones. The matrixes are both rack mountable, occupying 1U, full rack width enclosure for easy installation. And as with all Atlona products, the AT-UHD-H2H-88M and AT-UHD-H2H-44M come with the company’s 10-year limited warranty. Both matrixes will ship in Q3 of this year. www.atlona.com
