Atlona has launched an eight-output 4K/UHD distribution amplifier that features HDMI-to-HDBaseT distribution of 4K/UHD at 60 Hz/4:2:0 video, HDBaseT transmission up to 70 meters, HDCP 2.2 support, and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Distribution is via RGB Communications.

The AT-UHD-CAT-8 also provides EDID management and advanced display control functions through Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) for use with home TVs.

“This new eight-channel DA manages long distance distribution of protected 4K/UHD content and enables full control of remote displays without a separate control system,” said Joshua Castro, Atlona product manager. “These features, and PoE to power remote HDBaseT receivers, greatly simplify installation and improve system reliability. Having CEC means the DA’s remote control features will work with many of the latest digital TVs now available.”

In addition to HDBaseT outputs, the new DA provides an HDMI output for signal pass-through and daisy-chaining, and it is equipped with one IR and RS-232 connection for the amp as well as one for each output channel. 

“Atlona’s products and AV connectivity solutions offer us a great opportunity to provide integrators with the latest technologies that will excite their customers and enhance their living spaces,” said Caroline Britt, RGB Managing Director “Technology in this space moves fast, and we believe in Atlona’s dedication to innovation, product quality and reliability.”
