Atlona Unveils New 4K Wallplate Transmitter for USB-C AV and Data

Atlona, a Panduit company, has taken the wraps off the latest HDBaseTtransmitter in its Omega Series of switching, extension, and video processing solutions for modern AV communications and collaboration. A unique wallplate extender for USB-C AV and data, the immediately-available AT-OME-EX-TX-WPCtransmitter enables discreet, remote USB-C and USB 2.0 connectivity for soft codec conferencing and applications with interactive displays.

Providing presenters and meeting participants with convenient AV and data interfacing on walls, in furniture or in floor boxes, the OME-EX-TX-WPC transports video, embedded audio, RS-232 control signals and – when paired with a USB-capable Omega Series switcher or receiver – USB data via HDBaseT over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). The wallplate transmitter supports video up to 4K/UHD at 30 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for delivery of protected content.

The OME-EX-TX-WPC’s USB-C input supports both AV and data, enabling adapter-free AV connectivity for recent Mac, Chromebook, and Windows PCs as well as mobile devices with AV-capable USB-C ports. A separate USB 2.0 interface supports a peripheral device such as a speakerphone, microphone, keyboard, or mouse, making the transmitter an ideal extension solution for soft codec and web-based conferencing applications or interactive collaboration, when used with a compatible Omega switcher or receiver.

The OME-EX-TX-WPC features a US one-gang form factor and ships with interchangeable black and white trim kits, allowing inconspicuous installation across a wide range of environments while simplifying ordering for integrators. Power for the transmitter is supplied over HDBaseT from an Atlona Omega receiver or switcher, with remote configuration and monitoring available through the free Atlona Management System (AMS), part of the Velocity™ System AV control and management platform.

“An increasing array of devices are offering AV-capable USB-C connections, and as demand for software-based video conferencing and interactive applications accelerates, the need for connecting USB peripherals at remote locations is becoming more prevalent,” said David Shamir, Director of Product Management, Atlona. “With USB-C and USB 2.0interfaces, the OME-EX-TX-WPC addresses this challenge in an elegant, aesthetically unobtrusive, and easy-to-integrate form factor.”

The OME-EX-TX-WPC is available immediately through Atlona’s extensive network of authorized channel partners and is backed by the company’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty and support services.
