New 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher offers flexible support for 4K/UHD and HDR distribution between sources and destinations
SAN JOSE, Calif. August 30, 2017 – In response to escalating requests for HDR support in
residential AV systems, Atlona will launch its latest-generation HDMI matrix switcher, the ATHDR-H2H-44M,
at the upcoming CEDIA show (September 7-9, San Diego Convention Center).
Atlona will exhibit at Booth 3615.
The HDR-H2H-44M is a compact 1 RU, 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher for high dynamic range (HDR)
formats. It is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports 4K/UHD video @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma
sampling, as well as HDMI data rates up to 18Gb/s. The HDR-H2H-44M is ideal for residential as
well as commercial applications with the latest, as well as emerging, 4K/UHD and HDR sources
Ideal as a routing solution between HDR-capable AV sources and destinations, the HDR-H2H-
44M supports all video resolutions, audio formats, and color space formats encompassed in the
HDMI 2.0b specification. The HDR-H2H-44M can be coupled with one or more Atlona AT-HDREX-70-2PS
HDMI extenders for an HDR distribution solution that can easily support multi-room
AV systems, including those with Ultra HD Blu-ray players, streaming media players, and 4Kcapable
For residential integration flexibility, the HDR-H2H-44M includes EDID and HDCP management
features, and can send CEC control independently to each output for controlling individual
displays. A TOSLINK digital audio output is paired with each HDMI output for sending PCM or
surround sound audio to an AV receiver or soundbar. The HDR-H2H-44M can be controlled via
Ethernet, RS-232, and IR, and includes a handheld IR remote control.
“As more HDR content emerges, consumers will need adaptable and interoperable systems that
can easily distribute content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other services, as well as Ultra HD
Blu-ray and next-generation gaming consoles,” said Joshua Castro, product manager, Atlona.
“With that comes the need to move that content from these sources to multiple displays and
audio systems, with the ability to break-out audio only feeds. The AT-UHD-HD-44M provides
that flexibility for the consumer while giving custom installers a solution that is both easy to
install and able to support today’s demanding video requirements.”
The AT-UHD-HD-44M will begin shipping in Q4 2017, with its long-term reliability backed by
Atlona’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty.
