Atlona, a Panduit company, introduces a versatile new switcher in its Omega Series of AV integration solutions for modern workspaces and meeting environments. Available immediately, the cost-effective AT-OME-MH21 combines HDMI and USB-C inputs with advanced functionality and a built-in USB 3.0 hub for video conferencing peripherals or touch displays.
Ideal for huddle rooms, small meeting spaces, and even home offices, the two-input OME-MH21 offers integration and user convenience features including automatic display control, audio de-embedding, and high-quality 4K to 1080p down-scaling for use with HD displays. Automatic input selection intelligently switches between inputs when sources are added or removed, minimizing the need for the user to touch the device. This is particularly significant given today’s heightened health concerns as people return to shared physical environments.
The OME-MH21’s HDMI input and output support HDR and 4K/UHD, 60 Hz, 4:4:4 video at data rates up to 18 Gbps, while the USB-C input is ideal for direct AV interfacing with newer laptops and mobile devices plus data connectivity to the integrated USB 3.0 hub. The USB-C connection combines with the unit’s two USB type A ports and USB type B interface to support up to two host PCs plus two peripheral devices such microphones, speakerphones, or cameras. This efficiently enhances soft codec conferencing applications, with the ability to switch video and USB together between two host PCs.
“The OME-MH21 provides a compact yet comprehensive integration solution that is right-sized and attractively priced for smaller collaboration spaces,” said David Shamir, VP of Product Management, Atlona. “Its USB-C input and integrated USB 3.0 hub make it ideal for supporting the latest BYOD trends and the wide adoption of software-based conferencing solutions.”
The OME-MH21 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and can be configured and monitored remotely over a LAN or WAN through the Atlona Management System. Like all Omega solutions, the new switcher is backed by Atlona’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty and support services, ensuring long-term product reliability and performance.
