The What: Atlona, a Panduit company, has introduced a versatile new switcher in its Omega Series of AV integration solutions for modern workspaces and meeting environments. Available immediately, the cost-effective AT-OME-MH21 combines HDMI and USB-C inputs with advanced functionality and a built-in USB 3.0 hub for video conferencing peripherals or touch displays.
The What Else: Designed for huddle rooms, small meeting spaces, and even home offices, the two-input OME-MH21 offers integration and user convenience features including automatic display control, audio de-embedding, and high-quality 4K to 1080p down-scaling for use with HD displays. Automatic input selection intelligently switches between inputs when sources are added or removed, minimizing the need for the user to touch the device.(opens in new tab)
