Support VGA and HDMI with the HDVS-200 and Omega Series

For several years, the HDVS-200 Series has been among our best-selling AV integration products. Today, it continues to be very popular with our customers.

This product family provides a compact yet complete AV system solution for meeting spaces, classrooms, and other environments. An HDVS-200 system includes the AT-HDVS-200-TX HDBaseT transmitter for HDMI and VGA. (The HDVS-200-TX is available in a standard box or wallplate enclosure.)

Despite the predominance of the HDMI®, DisplayPort®, and USB-C® video formats, we continue to hear end users needing to maintain support for legacy VGA sources. For this reason, our HDVS-200 transmitters continue to be in demand for having a VGA input alongside HDMI.

Omega Series replaces the HDVS-200-RX

The HDVS-200-RX has long been the companion receiver to the HDVS-200 transmitters. However, it is now discontinued.

The good news is that we have a great replacement product for the HDVS-200-RX – the Omega™ Series AT-OME-RX21 receiver.

The OME-RX21 brings all the essential features of the HDVS-200-RX plus several enhanced capabilities:

  • Compatibility with 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz 4:2:0 or 30 Hz 4:4:4
  • Local 4K/60 4:4:4 HDMI input for an extra AV source such as a media player, or the new AT-WAVE-101 Wireless Presentation Platform
  • 4K upscaling and downscaling
  • Video processing features such as aspect ratio control and motion-adaptive 1080i deinterlacing

As with the HDVS-200-RX, the OME-RX21 includes stereo audio de-embedding for direct interfacing with an amplifier and speakers.

The OME-RX21 isn’t just for new HDVS-200 system purchases, however. It’s great for updating your existing installations with 4K/UHD compatibility and integrating the latest sources and displays.

HDVS-200 systems deliver the following essential features that enable built-in system automation and ease-of-use for any presenter:

  • Automatic HDMI and VGA input switching  
  • HD scaling at the receiver
  • Automatically powers a display upon laptop connection or disconnection
  • Contact closure control for room devices such as motorized projection screens

Add even more flexibility with a dual HDBaseT receiver

In addition to the OME-RX21, we’re pleased to offer the AT-OME-RX31, with an additional HDBaseT input.

The OME-RX31 provides some interesting options for repurposing HDVS-200-TX switchers into new system designs with AV input access at two remote locations. Below is one example illustrating a large conference table.

The OME-RX31 lets you bring in two HDVS-200-TX units, or combine with one of our newer switching transmitters such as the AT-OME-ST31A, with USB-C and HDMI inputs.

Both the OME-RX21 and OME-RX31 switching receivers are in stock and available for immediate shipment. Please contact us for design assistance or any additional questions you may have regarding these and other Atlona AV integration products.
