It ideal for displaying 4K/UHD HDR content from either a centralized matrix switcher or one of the connected local sources.
“The Opus Series has changed the game for a wide range of small-to-medium-sized residential and light commercial applications requiring flexible, multi-zone AV distribution that is futureproofed for emerging formats and resolutions,” said David Shamir, VP of Product Management, Atlona. “The OPUS-RX41 expands the line with a full complement of local switching, audio return, control extension, and unique integration capabilities.
The OPUS-RX41 includes an number of key features that enhance functionality as well as help simplify residential and light commercial deployments.

Advanced HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) routes audio from a smart TV to TOSLINK for local audio playback as well as through HDBaseT to an OPUS matrix switcher for whole house audio distribution. EDID management, selectable 4K to 1080p downscaling, and HDCP 2.2 support with selectable down-conversion to HDCP 1.4 ensure compatibility with legacy HD displays. Remote power allows the device to be powered by an Opus matrix switcher, for convenient installation at a display or projector without a local power supply.
