Soft Codec Conferencing System with PTZ Camera
ATLONA HDVS SERIES
The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-C-KIT is part of the Atlona HDVS Series of HDBaseT extenders with AV switching and scaling, plus automatic display control and automatic input selection. See below for a complete listing of transmitters, receivers, and extender kits.
The Atlona AT-UHD-HDVS-300-C-KIT provides a complete integration solution for huddle spaces and meeting rooms using PC-based conferencing codecs such as Skype® for Business, WebEx®, and GoToMeeting®. It includes AV switching, USB and HDMI extension, and integrated system control, plus the AT-HDVS-CAM, an enterprise-grade PTZ camera. The switcher and extender system offers five video inputs for HDMI, DisplayPort, and analog video signals. To simplify conference room device management, the system provides two USB type B connectors for host computers. Two built-in USB hubs, one on the transmitter and one on the receiver, allow for numerous Human Interface Devices (HID), as well as USB microphones and speakerphones plus the HDVS-CAM. For the HDMI inputs, the HDVS-300-C-KIT is compatible with sources and displays up to 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:2:0 color subsampling. Audio, video, data, control, USB, and Ethernet transmission is carried over a single, Ethernet-enabled HDBaseT link up to 330 feet (100 meters).
HDVS-CAM PTZ Camera
The HDVS-CAM features a USB interface for video and camera control. It delivers high performance, professional-quality imaging with video resolutions up to 1080p @ 30 Hz, plus fast and accurate auto-focusing, and a fast yet quiet pan and tilt mechanism. A single SKU, for a soft codec conferencing system with PTZ camera makes it simple and convenient to specify for meeting or instructional spaces throughout a facility, building, or campus. At the same time, system designers bypass the time and effort in selecting and purchasing third-party conferencing cameras.
Streamlined AV Systems for Meetings and Conferencing
Simple meetings demand simple systems. Attendees want to walk into a meeting space, open their laptop, and start a cloud-based conference. But to get quality results, systems are designed with AV extenders, USB extenders, USB hubs, remote controls, cameras, microphones and all the associated cable runs. The HDVS-300-C-KIT was designed to eliminate the clutter and system complexity in huddle spaces and meeting rooms where USB cameras and microphones are incorporated into professional AV systems with just two devices and a single category cable. This kit also excels in hybrid rooms where a traditional HDVS system is required for in-person meetings as well as videoconferencing.
Surface mounting brackets are provided with the HDVS-300-C-KIT for easy installation of the transmitter below a conference table.
Automatic Display Control
The HDVS-300-C-KIT provides control to a display through TCP/IP, RS-232 pass-through, or CEC*, without the need for a separate control system. This simplifies system design and integration while reducing costs. With automatic display control, the HDVS-300-C-KIT 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 HDVS-300-C-KIT 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 HDVS-300-C-KIT 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 HDVS-300-C-KIT 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.
* Consumer Electronics Control (CEC):Atlona does not guarantee the function of CEC with all televisions. We can confirm proper operation with many current Samsung, Panasonic, Sony, and LG TVs. Many manufacturers do not support the CEC “off” command when sent from a source and older TVs use proprietary commands. Atlona only supports those TVs that follow CEC command structure from HDMI 1.2a and support the “off” command when issued by a source. We encourage any dealer to get evaluation product from Atlona prior to designing a system around this control technology or be prepared to use other methods to control their displays if Atlona CEC is not compatible with the installed displays.
The HDVS-300-C-KIT 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.
- Teleconferencing with soft codecs – The switching transmitter is situated at a conference table for presenters to connect their laptops and integrate a USB mic or speakerphone, while the receiver is connected to the display and the HDVS-CAM.
- Touch and interactive displays – The HDVS-300-C-KIT is also ideal for extending USB connectivity from a touch display to a PC at the transmitter location.
Configured and Managed by AMS
The Atlona Management System (AMS) is a powerful network software platform ideal for configuring, managing, and monitoring the HDVS-300-C-KIT 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.
