The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-5000ED is a 5×1 switcher with two HDBaseT inputs, three HDMI inputs, mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs, balanced audio outputs, automatic input selection, and automatic display control capability.
The HDBaseT inputs match perfectly with the HDVS-200-TX modules to enable VGA and HDMI sources to be easily integrated into a system. The switcher supports 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz, 4:2:0; (10.2 Gbps).
It transmits AV signals along with Ethernet, power, and control over a single cable to displays up to 330 feet (100 meters) from the switcher.
Control options include automatic input selection, front-panel buttons, and compatibility with IR, RS-232, or TCP/IP-based control systems.
Displays are automatically turned on and off using CEC, IP, or RS-232.
The SW-5000ED enables two HDVS transmitters to be used in a single system.
With Ethernet enabled HDBaseT transmission to the HDVS transmitters and the receiver control, setup and maintenance is simplified.
Automatic input selection and display control simplify the system, reducing cost, reducing setup time and resulting in a better end user experience.
Automatic Display Control
The SW-5000ED provides control to a display through TCP/IP, RS-232, or CEC*, without the need for a separate control system.
This simplifies system design and integration while reducing costs. With automatic display control, the SW-5000ED can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected, whether locally to the switcher or over HDBaseT.
At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the SW-5000ED forces the display to power off.
Ease of presenter interaction with the system, and the savings incurred by automatic display shutdown provide a significant return on investment.
The SW-5000ED’s display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system.
A power button on the front panel can be used for manual on/off control of either the SW-5000ED or the display.
Front panel volume controls are also available to control the display’s internal audio, or another device with volume control, such as a DSP or another switcher.
The SW-5000ED 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 SW-5000ED 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.
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 two-channel, balanced +4 dBu 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 included 19” rack-mount brackets.
Two units can be mounted side-by-side.
• Lecture halls and various meeting spaces – Presentations may be given from two separate locations, both remote from the lectern, equipment rack, or credenza.
• Conference rooms and meeting rooms – The SW-5000ED is compact and ideal for under-table mounting. It conveniently provides automatic switching and display control for simplified user operation, especially when laptops are brought into the system.
• Presentation spaces where two displays are needed – This switcher can be installed in a lectern to serve a confidence monitor, plus the primary display in a remote location.
