The Atlona AT-OME-SW32 is a 3×2 matrix switcher with HDMI® and USB-C inputs, and HDMI outputs.
Part of the Omega™ Series of integration products for modern AV communications and collaboration, the OME-SW32 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports 4K HDR and 4K/60 4:4:4 at HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps.
The USB-C input is ideal for AV interfacing with Mac®, Chromebook™, and Windows® PCs, as well as smartphones and tablets.
Additionally, 4K downscaling to 1080p @ 60, 30, and 24 Hz is available for one of the HDMI outputs when connected to an HD sink.
Depending on the intended application, the OME-SW32 can be set to specific switching modes that include mirrored outputs (default), one of the outputs fixed to an input, or unrestricted matrix switching.
Compact, Flexible Matrix Switcher with Integrated AV System Automation
The versatile OME-SW32 is designed for under-table mounting in meeting spaces, to serve applications with side-by-side displays, video conferencing, interfacing with OmniStream networked AV systems, secondary switching into a larger AV system, and more.
For additional integration convenience, the OME-SW32 features automatic input selection, automatic display control, balanced audio de-embedding (linked to one of the HDMI inputs), control via TCP/IP and RS-232, and remote management with Atlona Management System (AMS).
Automatic Display Control
The OME-SW32 provides control to a display through 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 OME-SW32 can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected.
At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the OME-SW32 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 OME-SW32 display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system.
When the HDMI and HDBaseT outputs are mirrored, the OME-SW32 can automatically select 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.
• Meeting rooms with dual displays – The OME-SW32 is compact and easily installs under a conference table. The matrixed, dual HDMI outputs can directly feed into two flat-panel displays side-by-side. With the OME-SW32 installed below the table, the available Pocket™ 3H (AT-PKT-3H) provides convenient tabletop AV cable access for easy BYOD connectivity.
• Conference rooms and classrooms – One or more OME-SW32 units can be integrated with a larger AV switcher or matrix switcher.
• Multi-room AV distribution systems – This compact matrix switcher is also ideal for localized switching into or out of a centralized AV distribution system such as OmniStream™.
• Video conferencing system upgrade – The OME-SW32 can provide a cost-effective update to an existing system, adding 4K/60 capability with down-conversion to 1080p for the codec.
