The Atlona AT-HD-SC-500 is a 3◊1 switcher and HD scaler with two HDMI inputs and a VGA input with audio. It is designed to take video signals from switchers, PCs, or laptops, and scale them to an HDMI output at a wide range of resolutions and rates, up to 1080p @ 60 Hz and 1920◊1200. The HD-SC-500 can serve as the central component of a compact, automated AV system with the convenience of automatic input selection and display control. It enables input selection, volume, and display on/off control from the front panel or external RS-232 or TCP/IP commands. The HD-SC-500 incorporates many popular integration convenience features while delivering excellent value for classrooms, huddle rooms, and meeting spaces.
The HD-SC-500 offers advanced scaling capabilities including image adjustment capability, and an auto-set feature for matching incoming signals to the display's native resolution. Integrated scaling helps optimize image quality and switching performance. This switcher and scaler also features audio de-embedding, and third-party TCP/IP and RS-232 control of the scaler and display.
Surface mounting brackets are provided with the HD-SC-500 for easy under-table, furniture, or on-wall installation.
Automatic Display Control
The HD-SC-500 provides control to a display through TCP/IP, RS-232, or CEC, without the need for a separate control system. This simplifies system design and integration while reducing costs. With automatic display control, the HD-SC-500 can trigger a display to power on automatically whenever a laptop or other device is connected. At the end of the presentation, when the presenter disconnects the laptop, the HD-SC-500 forces the display to power off. Ease of presenter interaction with the system, and the savings incurred by automatic display shutdown provide a significant return on investment. The HD-SC-500 display control capability can also be triggered by an external control system.
A power button on the front panel can be used for manual on/off control of either the HD-SC-500 or the display. Front panel volume controls are also available to control the display's internal audio, or another device with volume control, such as a DSP or another switcher.
The HD-SC-500 automatically selects an input source based on detection of the 5 volt hot plug detect (HPD) signal, as well as active video. This ensures reliable auto-switching operation for all video sources, including DVRs, DisplayPort / Mini DisplayPort adapters, and other devices that always maintain the HPD line at the 5 volt "high" state but may not be delivering active video.
- Complete system applications - The HD-SC-500 provides a compact, yet comprehensive and cost-effective system integration solution with automatic input selection, display control capabilities, and essential audio processing.
- Expanding system capabilities - The HD-SC-500 can also be used as an input device on a switcher, matrix switcher, or distribution amplifier that doesn't have a VGA input, and as a dedicated scaler for any device with an HDMI output.
Configured and Managed by AMS
The Atlona Management System (AMS) is a powerful network software platform ideal for configuring, managing, and monitoring the HD-SC-500 and other Atlona IP-controllable devices over a LAN, WAN, or VPN. AMS is available free from Atlona, and greatly streamlines installation and maintenance of several Atlona products throughout a facility or enterprise, from a standard web browser.
