Atlona’s AT-HDCAT line of HDBaseT are a line of long-distance signal transmission products that can send A/V and power signals a few hundred feet.

The San Jose, Calif.-based electronics manufacturer Atlona designs and manufactures a broad selection of products for the residential and commercial electronics markets and recently the company announced that it has started to ship its AT-HDCAT line of HDBaseT signal transmission products that can be used for home and light commercial installations.

Atlona says the products are available in a choice of 2x4 and 2x8 configurations, and the products are capable of transmitting HDMI sources to multiple displays for distances of nearly 330 feet. The products work with video signals ranging from 1080p and 1920x1200, to 3D video signals, and they also work with lossless audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. In addition, the products are also capable of transmitting power signals to simplify system infrastructure.

“With a choice of four or eight outputs, and distances of 230 or 328 feet, our AT-HDCAT line of distribution amplifiers allows installers to select the right solution for extending HDMI signals in home theater and light commercial installations of any size,” says Steve Heintz, senior product manager, Atlona. “The units are compatible with our powerful new AT-HDRX and AT-HDRX-RSNET HDBaseT receivers and greatly simplify installations with their PoCc [power of category cable] capability.”

The company says the products are easy to use with features like smart auto switching that eliminates the need to manually change inputs and an EDID learning mode that ensures the devices work with a variety of products. Other features built into the products include HDMI loop outs that allow sources to be sent to multiple AT-HDCAT amplifiers and displays, and a choice of S/PDIF and analog audio loop outs that enable digital and analog stereo audio distribution to zone amplifiers and A/V receivers within a rack system.
