ATEN’s Unveils Series of HDMI Matrix Switches that Deliver Real-Time 
Control of Multiple Video Sources and Screens
Unique HDMI Matrix Solutions Available in 16-, 8- and 4-Port Configurations Provide Independent Channel Profiling and Instantaneous Switching Capabilities

Foothill Ranch, CA (June 1, 2014) – ATEN, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced connectivity solutions, today announced a new series of HDMI Matrix Switches that deliver real-time switching performance between multiple video sources and screens. The VM1600, VM5808H and VM5404H provide the flexibility to support large-scale professional A/V applications such as video walls, stage presentations, control rooms and other broadcast and monitoring environments.

The newest addition to ATEN's VanCryst professional A/V line is the VM1600, capable of supporting up to 16 HDMI sources to a maximum of 16 HDMI displays. ATEN's offers similar functionality in two smaller versions, the VM5808H and VM5404H, which can support up to a maximum of eight and four sources and displays, respectively.

Each of the three HDMI Matrix Switches provide the capability to independently switch and route video or audio content to various monitors, displays, projectors and speakers by using the front panel pushbuttons, an IR remote control, RS232, Telnet, or a browser GUI / network interface.

Integrated with ATEN's EDID Expert functionality and "Seamless Switch" technology, the Matrix Switches support mixed environments with disparate input and display resolutions, automatically selecting the optimum display parameters for a given display when switching inputs.

"The instantaneous switching technology and multi-channel capabilities make our series of Matrix Switches powerful, flexible and capable of supporting a broad range of professional A/V configurations," explained Jack Wang CEO of ATEN. "Organizations implementing videos walls, live events and control room environments can trust the VM1600, VM5808H and VM5404H to deliver real-time performance and reliability."

To support video wall configurations, ATEN's the HDMI Matrix Switches integrate with a scaler and FPGA design, ensuring all input sources are processed at the same time. Video content is delivered across all screens with no delay or signal loss and includes 32 connection profiles. Each profile can be configured to create one large screen from multiple displays, or rearranged in an array of formats. Additionally, the switches allow for audio separation to allow audio and video signals from one source to be sent out to different destinations.
