New Display Control System Automating Meeting Spaces

New Display Control System Automating Meeting Spaces

A new display controller automates small meeting spaces and huddle rooms lacking switchers and control systems.

FREMONT, CA: A Panduit company, Atlona, has launched a standalone display control system to automate meeting spaces. The company will now ship a compact, cost-efficient display controller that automates smaller meeting spaces in a streamlined configuration. The new 4K/UHD-ready AT-DISP-CTRL provides users with simple plug-and-play operation for meeting spaces that lack AV switching, eliminating the necessity to manage hand-held remote controls during lectures and presentations. Atlona helps its customers by providing a simple display automation tool for BYOD connectivity in gathering areas that don’t require full AV control with the DISP-CTRL. The DISP-CTRL enables the customers to design huddle rooms where presenters can just plug-in their laptop and begin presenting, providing an upgrade opportunity for the AV systems to eliminate the legacy hand-held remote and provide automatic display control capabilities. 

The DISP-CTRL detects the connection of a source device with an active signal that sends a control command to power the display automatically. The controller then changes the display power state based on the HDMI connection or disconnection automatically. It enables display control, volume control, and input selection without a remote control as well. Programmable display control modes can power off displays after a specified period of inactivity, or following a manual disconnection. The DISP-CTRL delivers pre-stored or user-programmed display control commands via TCP/IP, RS-232, IR, or CEC. Furthermore, the controller comprises EDID and HDCP management features, powered locally or via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The DISP-CTRL is HDCP 2.2 compliant, supporting 4K/UHD video @ 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and HDMI data that rates up to 18 Gbps. The DISP-CTRL is also used to control a higher number of AV sources. The compact display controller offers a comprehensive selection of display drivers from Atlona’s Velocity AV control system database, enabling menu-based configuration of device settings, display device driver selection, and the ability to program control commands. The DISP-CTRL offers integrators and tech managers simple configurability and management through its built-in GUI, with two Ethernet ports to support simultaneous LAN access and IP display control.

Atlona is a Panduit company and a leading global manufacturer of AV over IP distribution, control, and connectivity solutions. The company designs and engineers novel, award-winning products for various range of residential and commercial AV and IT markets.
