Atlona Introduces New Omega Series HDBaseT Receiver

Atlona, a Panduit company, recently unveiled the AT-OME-RX11 4K/UHD HDBaseT receiver with audio de-embedding capabilities. The new model is the latest addition to Atlona’s extensive Omega™ Series of switching, extension, and video processing solutions for modern AV communications and collaboration.

Paired with an Atlona HDBaseT transmitter or HDBaseT-output switcher, the OME-RX11 enables the transport of HDMI video and embedded audio alongside Ethernet, power and control over distances up to 330 feet (100 meters). The new receiver is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports video up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling at HDMI data rates up to 10 Gbps.

Ideal for meetings, collaboration, and many other AV presentation applications, the OME-RX11 combines outstanding technical performance and business value with a wide range of integration convenience features.

The locally powered OME-RX11 can deliver industry-standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) via HDBaseT to an Atlona Omega Series, HDVS-200 Series or AT-UHD-EX-100CE-TX-PD transmitter, enabling convenient transmitter installation at any remote location without the need for its own local AC power. The receiver’s low-profile, 1.02 inch (26 mm) high form factor enables discreet installation in furniture, behind displays, or above projectors, while front-panel LED indicators provide power and HDBaseT link status information to ease setup and troubleshooting.
