The Atlona AT-OME-ST31 is a 3×1 switcher and HDBaseT transmitter with HDMI and USB-C inputs. Part of the Omega™ Series of integration products for modern AV communications and collaboration, the OME-ST31 features mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs and is HDCP 2.2 compliant. The USB-C input is ideal for AV interfacing with newer Mac®, Chromebook™, and Windows® PCs, as well as smartphones and tablets. Video signals up to 4K/60 4:2:0 can be transmitted over HDBaseT up to 330 feet (100 meters). All inputs and the local HDMI output support 4K HDR and 4K/60 4:4:4 at HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps. Additionally, 4K downscaling to 1080 @ 60, 30, or 24 Hz is available for the HDMI output when connected to an HD sink. The OME-ST31 is designed for use with Omega Series receivers and switchers, select HDVS Series receivers such as the AT-HDVS-SC-RX scaler, the AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX receiver, and other Atlona switchers with HDBaseT inputs.
All-in-One Switcher, Controller, and Extender
This switching transmitter can serve as an integral component of a fully automated AV system, with the convenience of automatic input selection and display control. It can be remotely powered by Atlona HDBaseT-equipped devices through Power over Ethernet (PoE). With the optional power supply, the OME-ST31 can provide PoE powering to a compatible receiver, and also charge laptops and mobile devices through the USB-C port. For additional integration convenience, the OME-ST31 features analog audio embedding (to replace the HDMI or USB-C input audio), control via TCP/IP and RS-232, RS-232 insertion over HDBaseT, and remote management with Atlona Management System (AMS).
Automatic Display Control
The OME-ST31 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 OME-ST31 can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the OME-ST31 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 OME-ST31 display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system.
The OME-ST31 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.
The AT-OME-ST31 is ideal for 4K/UHD extension to the AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX-PSE or AT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX receiver, and can also provide remote 4K/UHD input switching for Atlona HDBaseT-equipped switchers and matrix switchers. Additionally, the AT-OME-ST31 is compatible with the AT-HDVS-200-RX receiver and HD scaler, and the AT-HDVS-SC-RX receiver and 4K/UHD scaler.
