The AT-UHD-CLSO-612ED is part of the Atlona CLSO Series of multi-format switchers and matrix switchers for presentation AV systems. The CLSO Series features built-in HDBaseT extension, plus powerful control and audio system integration features. See below for more information.
The AT-UHD-CLSO-612ED features HDBaseT input and output, and is compatible with Atlona UHD-EX and HDVS-200 Series transmitters and receivers. This switcher can conveniently be controlled by the ANC-108D button control panel.
The Atlona AT-UHD-CLSO-612ED is an advanced six-input, multi-format switcher with built-in 4K scaling and mirrored HDBaseT and HDMI outputs. It simplifies classroom and small office system integration by providing two HDBaseT inputs, two HDMI inputs, and two multi-function analog inputs. HDBaseT inputs enable integration of remote sources at lecterns, meeting tables, and walls via HDBaseT transmission, alongside locally connected sources. The CLSO-612ED is designed to be the central component of an automated AV system. Automatic display control powers the display automatically whenever a source is connected or disconnected. Automatic input selection on the CLSO-612ED works by sensing the presence of any video signal.
The CLSO-612ED combines the benefits of a scaling switcher with automatic display control and automatic input selection, and the advantages of HDBaseT signal transmission to extend AV, power, control, and Ethernet over a single cable. The switcher enables input selection from the front panel, RS-232, or TCP/IP commands. The CLSO-612ED is ideal for applications where multiple signals with different resolutions must be optimized for a display. Professional audio features such as a microphone input with 48 volt phantom power and ducking are also included, allowing the switcher to address a wide array of AV needs often encountered in classrooms, conference rooms, boardrooms, training rooms, and other presentation settings. In addition to automated input selection, the switcher can be controlled via the Atlona AT-ANC-108D button control panel.
Automatic Display Control
The CLSO-612ED provides control to a display through TCP/IP, RS-232, or CEC*, without the need for a separate control system. This simplifies system design and integration while reducing costs. With automatic display control, the CLSO-612ED can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected, whether locally to the switcher or over HDBaseT. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the CLSO-612ED forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system, and the savings incurred by automatic display shutdown provide a significant return on investment. The CLSO-612ED’s display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system.
A power button on the front panel can be used for manual on/off control of either the CLSO-612ED or the display. Front panel volume controls are also available to control the display’s internal audio, or another device with volume control, such as a DSP or another switcher.
The CLSO-612ED automatically selects an input source based on detection of the 5 volt hot plug detect (HPD) signal, as well as active video. This ensures reliable auto-switching operation for all video sources, including DVRs, DisplayPort / Mini DisplayPort adapters, and other devices that always maintain the HPD line at the 5 volt “high” state but may not be delivering active video.
RS-232 Distribution to Sources and Destinations
A bi-directional RS-232 connection is available at every local input and output on the CLSO-612ED. Along with RS-232 signal distribution built into each HDBaseT link, the switcher has a powerful capability to route control signals to each source and display as a separate zone. The CLSO-612ED lowers the cost of a third-party control system by allowing one with fewer RS-232 interfaces. For further integration convenience, the CLSO-612ED can extend Ethernet from a control processor, and features IP to RS-232 translation for converting TCP/IP commands to RS-232. This provides the flexibility of extending TCP/IP or RS-232 control to remote devices over HDBaseT.
