Atlona’s AT-OME-SW21-TX-WPC wallplate HDBaseT transmitter combines HDMI and USB-C switching with extension of both AV and USB data in a US one-gang form factor. The ultra-compact device provides inconspicuous connectivity for presenters, educators and meeting participants while supporting the growing importance of USB data in AV workflows. The OME-SW21-TX-WPC transports video, audio, display control signals and—when paired with a compatible Atlona receiver or switcher—USB data via HDBaseT over distances up to 330′ (100m). It supports video sources up to 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:2:0 chroma subsampling and is HDCP 2.2 compliant for delivering of protected content. The OME-SW21-TX-WPC’s USB-C input supports both AV and data, enabling simple, single-cable connectivity for recent PCs, plus smartphones and tablets with AV-capable USB-C ports. Separate USB 2.0 interfaces and the built-in USB hub support an additional host system and a peripheral device such as a speakerphone or microphone.
