Atlona Ships New Wallplate Networked AV Encoder
AT-OMNI-111-WP enables video distribution with pristine image quality and ultra-low latency over IP networks in a convenient, compact form factor
SAN JOSE, California, December 3, 2019 – Atlona, a Panduit company, today announced the immediate availability of the OmniStream™ 111 Wallplate (AT-OMNI-111-WP) single-channel networked AV encoder. Packing the core features and performance of the proven AT-OMNI-111 encoder into a compact, U.S. two-gang wallplate form factor, the OMNI-111-WP enables convenient, discreet installation wherever an AV source connection is required.
The OMNI-111-WP will be featured in demonstrations of Atlona’s AV over IP innovations at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam, where the company will exhibit in stand 5-T50 from February 11 to 14.
The OMNI-111-WP a member of Atlona’s OmniStream Pro Series, which provides flexible, high-performance, distribution of video and audio over standard, off-the-shelf Gigabit Ethernet switches in commercial AV applications. The new wallplate encoder is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports HDMI sources up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with High Dynamic Range (HDR) – including optional support for 12-bit Dolby Vision™ content at 60 frames per second – plus embedded audio.
Like all OmniStream models, the OMNI-111-WP features advanced, visually lossless VC-2 video compression technology with user-selectable quality optimization engines for pristine delivery of motion video content or computer-generated imaging. The new offering combines with OmniStream networked AV decoders to achieve ultra-low, sub-frame latency from encode to decode.
The OMNI-111-WP’s two-gang enclosure for Decora®-style wallplate openings and interchangeable black and white trim kits allow inconspicuous installation on walls, in furniture or in floor boxes. It can be remotely powered over the network from a PoE (Power over Ethernet) equipped network switch, thus simplifying integration, while the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) software enables remarkably easy setup, management and monitoring through an intuitive, web-based interface. Network error resilience with FEC (forward error correction) enables consistent, reliable performance in enterprise-wide AV implementations spanning multiple networks. Last but not least, support for industry-standard network security protocols and features safeguards installations and content.
“Our OmniStream platform delivers an exceptional combination of performance, feature-richness and cost-effectiveness for systems integrators and end users as they move from traditional signal distribution to AV over IP,” said David Shamir, Director of Product Management, Atlona. “We are pleased to provide our customers with even greater installation flexibility by delivering OmniStream’s capabilities in this convenient wallplate form factor.”
