The ATEN VP1421 is a multi-in-one presentation switch that integrates a video matrix switch, 4K scaler, HDBaseT extender, audio DSP, and analog-to-digital converter functions into one compact device that easily mounts under a table or in a rack. With four analog/digital inputs to one HDBaseT and one HDMI True 4K outputs, it is designed to boost the efficiency and impact of professional presentations.

With streamlined control from front-panel pushbuttons, IR remote controller, RS-232, and web-based GUI via Ethernet, the VP1421 reduces not only system device count, but also lowers operation complexity. It is suitable for all meeting space and education environments, such as huddle rooms, classrooms, training rooms, or any other presentation setting, such as in exhibition galleries or hotels.
