4K/UHD HDMI Switcher with HDMI and HDBaseT Outs, and POE

4K/UHD HDMI Switcher with HDMI and HDBaseT Outs

The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-52ED is a 5×1 4K/UHD HDMI switcher with HDMI and HDBaseT outputs, balanced analog audio outputs, automatic input selection and automatic display control capability. The switcher supports 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:2:0 color, offers 3D pass-through, and 10.2 Gbps bandwidth.

In addition to an HDMI output, the switcher features a mirrored, Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT output. It transmits AV signals along with Ethernet, power, and control over a single cable to displays up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher to PoE-powered HDBaseT receivers like the Atlona AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX extender receiver, HDBaseT displays or even another switcher. Control options for the switcher include automatic input selection, front-panel buttons, and compatibility with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP-based control systems.

Automatic Display Control

Offering first-of-its-kind display capabilities, the AT-UHD-SW-52ED allows display control using CEC, TCP/IP or RS-232 signals. This means that many more types of displays can be controlled, costs are reduced, and that wiring is simplified. In a commercial setting, when a switcher is integrated with a display, the AT-UHD-SW-52ED 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-UHD-SW-52ED 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.

  • CEC – The AT-UHD-SW-52ED features Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) providing simplified display control for a significant reduction in the cost of the display (compared to an RS-232 controlled display). CEC is a communication channel incorporated in the HDMI specification allowing connected devices to control each other.
  • TCP/IP – The TCP/IP signal can be transmitted either through an independent LAN connection or through the HDBaseT connection when connected to an AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX receiver which allows Ethernet over HDBaseT. The LAN port on the AT-UHD-SW-52ED not only connects to the AT-UHD-SW-52ED, it also extends out the HDBaseT connection through an internal hub. A connected router is required to manage IP addresses.
  • RS-232 – 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 scaler is able to send commands using RS-232 for automatic display control to compatible displays.  
  • FLEXIBLE, POWER BUTTON – The power button on the front panel can be set to either turn the AT-UHD-SW-52ED on/off or it can be set to control the attached display. In addition to using the front panel power button, display on/off commands can be triggered automatically based on presence of video signals, or by a third-party control system using either TCP/IP, RS-232, or IR signals.
  • SWITCHER OR DISPLAY VOLUME CONTROL – Volume control buttons on the front panel can control either the analog audio output of the AT-UHD-SW-52ED or they can be set to control the volume of any device that allows volume control using TCP/IP or RS-232, such as a flat panel display, DSP, or another switcher. This gives great flexibility to the system design.
  • MULTIPLE POINTS OF CONTROL – Since all these commands can be sent using TCP/IP, it becomes simple to have multiple control points in a larger system. The AT-UHD-SW-52ED could be used as an input device for an AT-UHD-CLSO-824 and the buttons would then be able to manage a variety of functions such as “Show me” and volume.

Reliable Auto-Switching

The AT-UHD-SW-52ED 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.

Mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT Outputs

The AT-UHD-SW-52ED adds 4K/UHD performance and extended distance HDBaseT transmission to Atlona’s HDMI small switcher family for a unique solution for professional integration applications. Internal HDBaseT and video distribution eliminate the need for additional system components while PoE eliminates the need for a power supply for the receiver. As an alternative, with an HDBaseT-capable display, an HDBaseT receiver isn’t required, reducing system complexity and saving integrators time and money.

Additional Features

Advanced features also include a web-based GUI for easy set-up and management of EDID, HDCP, and display control. The switcher offers audio de-embedding of PCM audio over HDMI to either S/PDIF or two-channel analog audio outputs. The switcher is a cost-effective product for professional integration featuring a compact, 1U, half-rack width enclosure that is easily installed with the included 19” rack mount brackets. Two units can be mounted side-by-side.

Optional Scaler for VGA Signals

If VGA inputs are required with the AT-UHD-SW-52ED, we recommend the AT-HD-SC-500 scaler. With automatic input selection, two HDMI inputs and a VGA input it brings scaling to the VGA source without affecting the HDMI signals. Resolution of the HDMI signals can be controlled using the EDID settings on the AT-UHD-SW-52ED.

The AT-UHD-SW-52ED also supports the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform that integrates product configuration, management and updating. Specially designed for IP-controllable Atlona Products, the Atlona Management System reduces installation time and enables remote monitoring and support. To learn more please visit AT-SW-AMS.

The AT-UHD-SW-52ED is ideal for:

  • Huddle Rooms with HDMI sources. Enables auto-switch and auto-display control.
  • Presentation spaces where two displays are needed – one at the presenter’s podium and the other placed up to 328 feet (100 meters) from the switcher.
  • An equipment rack where an easy-to-integrate, HDBaseT switcher is needed to provide cost savings associated with routing audio, video, control, Ethernet, and power a long distance over a single category cable from the equipment rack.

*Consumer Electronics Control (CEC):  Atlona does not guarantee the function of CEC with all televisions. We can confirm proper operation with many current Samsung, Panasonic, and Sony TVs. Many manufacturers do not support the CEC “off” command when sent from a source and older TVs use proprietary commands. Atlona only supports those TVs that follow CEC command structure from HDMI 1.2a and support the “off” command when issued by a source. We encourage any dealer to get evaluation product from Atlona prior to designing a system around this control technology or be prepared to use other methods to control their displays if Atlona CEC is not compatible with the installed displays.

Configured and Managed by AMS

The AT-UHD-SW-52ED also supports the Atlona Management System (AMS), a powerful network software platform that integrates product configuration, management and updating. Specially designed for IP-controllable Atlona Products, the Atlona Management System reduces installation time and enables remote monitoring and support. To learn more please visit AT-SW-AMS.
