In a relatively short amount of time, the San Jose, Calif.-based manufacturer Atlona established itself as a top manufacturer in the matrix switch category. The most recent additions bring true 4K content compatibility and the latest copyright protection format, HDCP 2.2, to the matrix switch market.

Now available for order, the newly announced AT-UHD-H2H-88M 8x8 and AT-UHD-H2H-44M 4x4 matrix switchers are shipping. According to the California company, the products provide dealers with a choice of flexible tools that can be used for a variety of system installations.

“There has been a growing demand for products that support 4K/UHD at 60Hz and HDCP 2.2,” says IIya Khayn, president and CEO, Atlona. “Atlona has been at the forefront in meeting that demand, and our customers can now rest easy that they have a matrix switcher to pass those signals reliably.”

Atlona explains its new matrix switches allow for all input sources to be simultaneously distributed to any zone. Zone and source selection can be made from the products’ front panel, handheld remote controls or third-party control systems.

Supporting its control, the AT-UHD-H2H-88M 8x8 and AT-UHD-H2H-44M matrix switchers offer dealers the choice of control via IP, RS-232 or IR, and the switches’ integrated web servers that include full GUI menus provide HDCP/EDID reporting, system configuration and device status feedback through web-enabled products such as computers and smart products such as iPhones, iPads and Android products.

Both products are 1U high. Atlona backs the matrix switches with 10-year warranties.

“Atlona has built a reputation for switchers that deliver fast, reliable performance,” says Khayn. “Our customers will find that these [matrix switchers] live up to that reputation.”
