Atlona Boosts Presentation and Collaboration Capabilities with New Switchers

Atlona, a Panduit company, is a manufacturer of AV distribution, AV over IP, collaboration, and control solutions, focusing on improving technology for idea sharing through innovative products used in commercial and educational applications.

Atlona has introduced two new 3×1 switchers, the AT-OME-CS31-SA and AT-OME-CS31-SA-HDBT, as part of its Omega Series of AV presentation and collaboration products. These switchers are specifically designed for learning and meeting spaces, offering features such as AV switching, USB routing, audio mixing, amplification, and control integration into a compact enclosure.

The switchers are tailored to meet the specific needs of different environments within learning and meeting spaces. The OME-CS31-SA is ideal for local switching applications, while the OME-CS31-SA-HDBT accommodates remote and local AV switching, extending HDMI, Ethernet, power, control, and USB 2.0 data up to 100 meters. Special capabilities for education applications include audio ducking, automatic muting for school public address announcements, and USB routing capabilities suited for corporate and education environments. These switchers aim to provide comprehensive AV solutions for modern classrooms and workspaces.

Atlona continues to grow its Omega Series of AV presentation and collaboration products with two new 3×1 switchers ideally suited for learning and meeting spaces. Available immediately, the AT-OME-CS31-SA (three HDMI® inputs) and AT-OME-CS31-SA-HDBT(one HDBaseT™ input and two HDMI inputs) both consolidate AV switching, USB routing, audio mixing, amplification, and control into a low-profile enclosure.

The OME-CS31-SA and OME-CS31-SA-HDBT primarily share the same feature set, with key variances in AV switching and USB capabilities to meet specific requirements. The OME-CS1-SA is built for local switching applications that place its inputs close to the switcher and display, such as a classroom where the instructor’s desk is positioned near the front wall. The OME-CS31-SA-HDBT accommodates remote and local AV switching and is therefore most effective when an input is further from the switcher, such as at an instructor’s lectern in the room or if the switcher is mounted by a projector. The remote input of the OME-CS31-SA-HDBT supports extension of HDMI, Ethernet, power, control, and USB 2.0 data up to 100 meters (330 feet).

The two switchers add special capabilities for education applications that ensure important lesson material and announcements are heard clearly. This includes audio ducking which lowers program audio levels when the instructor speaks into a microphone system connected to the balanced input. Additionally, the system can be muted by contact closure or automatically when a school public address announcement is detected. Other audio capabilities include an on-board mixer for combining three line inputs, de-embedded HDMI, and USB audio as well as 2 x 25 watt amplifier and line level outputs.

USB routing capabilities are well suited for corporate and education applications. Both OME-CS31 models support switching between two host devices and include a four-port hub for connecting cameras, speakerphones, interactive displays or other peripherals. Automatic display control and auto-switching allow the OME-CS31-SA and OME-CS31-SA-HDBT to automate system operation over their various Ethernet, serial, and trigger ports, or they can be integrated into environments with an Atlona Velocity™ control system.

“The Omega Series has evolved into our broadest product line, with an increasingly diverse range of switching and extension solutions to address the AV needs of any modern classroom or workspace,” said Tommy Gay, Product Manager, Atlona. “The OME-CS31-SA and OME-CS31-SA-HDBT bring together several key engineering strengths from Atlona across switching, audio, USB, and control to offer our customers all-in-one room solutions.”
