OmniStream Dual-Channel Networked AV Encoder
The Atlona OmniStream™ 112 (AT-OMNI-112) is a networked AV encoder with two independent channels of encoding for two HDMI sources up to 4K/UHD, plus embedded audio and RS-232 control. OmniStream is designed for distributing AV over 1 Gigabit Ethernet in enterprises and other large-scale installations. The OmniStream 112 features SMPTE VC-2 visually lossless compression for critical-quality video applications, with extremely low, sub-frame latency from encode to decode. It also includes selectable AES-128 encryption, and SMPTE 2042 forward error correction for robust AV distribution spanning multiple networks. This dual-channel encoder is housed in a half-width rack enclosure and is ideal for high-density rack installations. With two Ethernet ports, the OmniStream 112 can also deliver duplicate AV streams to two networks for full system redundancy in mission-critical applications.
OmniStream was engineered from the ground up at Atlona to deliver the performance and dependability of traditional AV distribution, with the virtually unlimited scalability and cost efficiency of integrating over data networks. It addresses the many challenges AV and IT integrators encounter with implementing networked AV systems, while delivering immediate and long-term ROI to end users in enterprises and other organizations.
Networked AV Redundancy
The OmniStream 112 can provide networked AV system redundancy in conjunction with an OmniStream 122 dual-channel AV decoder. It can deliver two simultaneous encoded streams from an HDMI source, with the two channels connected into primary and redundant networks, and an OmniStream 122 configured to decode both streams simultaneously. The OmniStream 122 can detect the loss of a physical network connection, or disruption in an AV stream, and then automatically switch over to the secondary network for continuous system operation.
Designed for Pro AV Integration
The OmniStream 112 includes several features for optimizing integration and enhancing professional AV presentations. EDID and HDCP management features ensure reliable, consistent system operation and compatibility with source devices. EDID management includes the option to assign an EDID captured from a display at an OmniStream AV decoder. Aspect ratio controls are available to specify the presentation viewing format as desired by the end user. Additionally, OmniStream offers the option to overlay a logo image (PNG with transparent background) onto an AV presentation for corporate or institutional branding. A full-screen image can also be displayed, as a backup in an event of an interruption in an AV stream, or to display information between presentations.
The OmniStream 112 is ideal for use in:
- Enterprises and other large organizations
- Corporate and university campuses with the need to distribute AV between buildings
- Applications in which any AV content or resource can be shared anywhere in the system
Configured and Managed by AMS
OmniStream is configured, controlled, and managed using the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform for IP-controllable Atlona products. AMS is essential for accessing all capabilities of the OmniStream encoders and decoders, including AV and control routing between sources and destinations, configuring OmniStream dual-channel encoders and decoders for independent or redundant streams, monitoring the status of OmniStream endpoint devices, powering displays on or off through automatic display control, and more. AMS is also used for Dante™ network configuration with the OmniStream 232 networked audio interface.
