The West Coast manufacturer explains the JunoX Series (AT-JUNO-451) is a 4×1 HDMI switcher that supports the HDMI 2.0a format, which covers technologies like 4K with HDR, and HDMI Audio Return Channel. 

Atlona says the HDCP 2.2 compliant product also offers Toslink digital audio output to send audio to A/V receivers and soundbars for additional system configuration flexibility.

Both the Rondo 442 (AT-RON-442) and the Rondo (AT-RON-444) distribution amplifiers offer EDID management options.

In addition, both amplifiers have front-panel LED indicators for power and signal status communications. Atlona notes that integrators can cascade up to eight units without compromising performance, and all three products can be used for applications such as content distribution from sources such as Ultra HD Blu-ray disc players, streaming devices and media players.

The JunoX 451 provides EDID management feature control via Ethernet, RS-232 and IR.

Integrators using Atlona's free Atlona Management System (AMS) can easily configure the products according to the company.
