Wired connectivity for business conferencing

The Atlona Omega™ MS42W lets meeting participants share content in a meeting room, or via teleconference. It offers a variety of wired connections for source devices, with switchable output for two display screens at up to 4K resolution. And it's compatible with Zoom, Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, and other popular teleconferencing apps.

Making connections

This device offers some convenient ways to connect and share. For starters, there's a handy Ethernet port for making a wired connection to your network, which lets you use the switcher's built-in browser-based interface for setup and management..

For participants who want to connect a computer or mobile device, there are dual USB Type-B ports, a USB Type-C connector, and a DisplayPort input on the back panel. A pair of USB Type-A ports let you connect peripheral devices — think keyboard, mouse, or video camera.

There are two HDMI inputs for video sources and an HDMI output for connecting to a high-res video display screen. The HDMI output passes audio, but you can also use the 5-pin Phoenix-style output on the back panel to pass de-embedded audio to an amp or active speaker system. An HDBaseT output delivers power, data, audio, and video to a compatible receiving  device via Ethernet cable. And you can remotely control the system via the RS-232 port.

Features

Overview: The Atlona AT-OME-MS42 is a 4x2 matrix switcher with HDMI, Display Port, and USB-C inputs along with HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. The matrix switcher features HDBaseT extension for video up to 4K @60Hz (4:2:0) plus embedded audio, control, Ethernet, and USB over distances of up to 330 feet. All inputs and the HDMI output support 4K HDR and 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) at HDMI data rates up to 18Gbps. The USB-C input can provide A/V interfacing with Mac, Chromebook, Windows PCs, as well as smartphones and tablets, making the AT-OME-MS42 ideal for video conferencing. The matrix switcher also offers 4K downscaling to 1080p @60, 30, or 24Hz for the HDMI output.

Matrix Switcher: The AT-OME-MS42 features 2 HDMI, 1 Display Port, and a USB-C input that can be passed to either or both of the single HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. The matrix switcher features automatic display control, balanced analog audio de-embedding, control via TCP/IP and RS-232.

Applications: The Atlona AT-OME-MS42 offers USB extension over HDBaseT up to 330' plus interfacing for host PCs and USB peripherals, making the OME-MS42 ideal for video conferencing and UC (unified communications) platforms such as Zoom, Skype® for Business, Microsoft® Teams®, Cisco® Webex®, BlueJeans, and GoToMeeting®.

Configuration & Management: The AT-OME-MS42 can easily be configured and managed using the Atlona Management System (AMS), providing centralized, network-based configuration and management of Atlona IP-controllable products and systems. The matrix switcher also offers intuitive GUI (Graphical User Interface)-based configuration using its integrated web server. This offers menu-based configuration of device settings, input switching, I/O routing for video and audio, signal processing, and more, allowing configuration from a mobile device or PC.

Input & Output Signals:

  • 4 Inputs:
    • 2 HDMI & 1 Display Port: Support 4K HDR and 4K @60Hz (4:4:4) with data rates up to 18Gbps.
    • 1 USB-C: Supports A/V signals from compatible laptops, smartphones, and tablets without the need for a USB-C to HDMI adapter.
  • 2 Outputs:
    • 1 HDMI: Outputs 4K HDR and 4K @60Hz (4:4:4) signals.
    • 1 HDBaseT: Outputs video up to 4K @60Hz (4:2:0).

Additional Connections:

  • LAN: RJ-45 port provides the connection to a local network.
  • Audio Out: A 5-pin Euroblock provides a 2-channel PCM analog line-level audio output.
  • USB-A (2): Provide the connection for peripheral USB devices such as a keyboard or mouse.
  • USB-B (2): Provide the connection to a computer or other host device.
  • RS-232: A 3-pin Euroblock connector can be used to send and receive RS-232 commands.

Auto-Switching: The matrix switcher will automatically select an input source based on detection of the 5 volt Hot Plug Detect (HDP) signal when the unit is powered on or video is detected. A front-panel Input Select button lets you override the auto-switching feature when more than one active source is connected.

4K Downscaling: 4K/UHD @60/30/24Hz downscaling to 1080p is available for the HDMI output, making it ideal for 1080p displays and video conferencing codecs.

Multi-Channel Audio: The AT-OME-MS42 can pass-through multi-channel audio formats, supporting PCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS:X.

Audio De-Embedding: The AT-OME-MS42 can provide a 2-channel PCM analog audio output (line-level) via a 5-pin Euroblock connector, for connection to an outboard amplifier or powered speakers.

TCP/IP & RS-232 Control: The AT-OME-MS42 features flexible control options for compatibility with the Atlona Velocity control system, as well as other third-party control systems (not included). A 3-pin RS-232 connector is provided for RS-232 control. The matrix switcher can convert TCP/IP commands to RS-232 commands, letting you control external devices from the LAN (RJ-45) input. This allows an optional control processor to control both IP and RS-232 devices at remote endpoints from a single IP connection.

EDID: The Atlona matrix switcher manages EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) communications from the source to the display, ensuring the best video resolution and audio format is provided.

HDCP Management: The AT-OME-MS42 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and automatically reports HDCP compliance status to the source, allowing non-protected material from from PCs to pass to non-compliant displays, streaming devices, and teleconferencing systems. Protected content is not transmitted. The Switcher will output a green splash-screen as a visual indication that protected content is being blocked from transmission to a non-compliant display.

Firmware Update: The matrix switcher firmware can be updated via AMS or through a web GUI.

Mounting: The AT-OME-MS42 includes 4 rubber feet for placing it on a horizontal surface. The matrix switcher also includes long and short rack-ears for mounting it in a standard 19" equipment rack.

Power: A +24VDC/5A AC power supply is included. The matrix switcher can also be powered via an optional PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) device.
