Atlona is making easy and reliable HDMI and USB signal extension even more cost-effective for huddle spaces and small meeting rooms with the introduction of the new AT-OME-EX-KIT-LT HDBaseT extender. Available immediately, the new transmitter/receiver kit extends 4K/UHD HDMI video, embedded audio, power, control and USB data over HDBaseT while discreetly offering simple connectivity for collaboration and video conferencing.
The newest extension solution in Atlona’s Omega™ Series of essential AV system components for modern workspaces and meeting environments, the OME-EX-KIT-LT provides the powerful core functionality of Atlona’s proven AT-OME-EX-KIT in a lower-priced configuration optimized for small spaces with shorter extension requirements.
“Our OME-EX-KIT has become a preferred choice of systems integrators and end users for long-distance signal transport in AV environments as large as auditoriums and lecture halls, but its 330 foot extension capabilities are unnecessary in smaller spaces such as huddle rooms,” said David Shamir, Director of Product Management, Atlona. “The OME-EX-KIT-LT offers a more economical option for these rooms while delivering similar versatility, feature-richness and integration convenience as its sibling.”
The OME-EX-KIT-LT extends 1080p60 HDMI and USB signals up to 230 feet (70 meters) over HDBaseT, while 4K/HDR HDMI video – at 60 frames per second with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling, or 30 fps with 4:4:4 – can be extended up to 130 feet (40 meters). HDCP 2.2 compliance enables the transport of protected content.
The OME-EX-KIT-LT’s USB 2.0 interfacing and extension capabilities make it ideal for soft codec and web-based conferencing in conjunction with applications such as Zoom™, Skype® for Business, Microsoft® Teams®, Cisco® Webex®, BlueJeans and GoToMeeting®. Supporting a host PC and two peripherals at the transmitter plus two ports for peripherals at the receiver, the kit can easily integrate with a PC and speakerphone or microphone at a meeting table, and a camera or soundbar at a corresponding wall-mounted display. For other interactive applications, it can also provide AV and USB extension for a touch-enabled display, allowing remote PC control at a meeting table or other location.
The transmitter is powered from the receiver over HDBaseT, enabling convenient, discreet transmitter installation without the need for local AC power. A test button and LED on the transmitter unit enable quick visual confirmation of the integrity of the HDBaseT link between the transmitter and receiver, while a free software utility provides real-time link status plus detailed diagnostic and signal information.
