The Atlona AT-UHD-SW-510W is a 5×2, multi-format matrix switcher with wireless presentation capability. It provides universal BYOD (bring your own device) compatibility with HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C inputs, plus wireless connectivity for mobile devices. The SW-510W is HDCP 2.2 compliant, and features matrixed or mirrored HDMI and HDBaseT outputs. The HDBaseT output is ideal for use with the Atlona External link opens in new tab or windowAT-UHD-EX-100CE-RX-PSE HDBaseT receiver, or the External link opens in new tab or windowAT-HDVS-SC-RX scaling HDBaseT receiver. It also includes automatic input switching and automatic display control capability, both applicable to wired and wireless source connections. This unique multi-format matrix switcher and wireless gateway provides a universal connectivity solution for presentation devices in a wide range of professional AV applications.


 

The USB-C port on the SW-510W is ideal for Mac, Chromebook, and Windows PCs. All inputs and the local HDMI output are compatible with video signals up to 4K/UHD @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, as well as data rates up to 18 Gbps. For integration convenience and flexibility, simultaneous 18 Gbps HDMI and 10 Gbps HDBaseT outputs make the SW-510W ideal for various presentation scenarios such as primary and confidence displays in a corporate auditorium or lecture hall. The HDBaseT output extends video, audio, control, and Ethernet up to 100 meters. (For AV signals exceeding 10 Gbps, 4K/UHD video will be subsampled to 4:2:0, or HDR metadata removed for HDBaseT transmission.)


Wireless BYOD Connectivity

In addition to wired AV connections, the SW-510W interfaces with a presenter’s iOS, Android, Mac, Chromebook, or Windows device over Wi-Fi®, and allows screen mirroring without the need to install an app. It can serve as an integrated, dual band access point, or be networked into an existing Wi-Fi installation. With a second antenna (included), the SW-510W can also provide simultaneous Wi-Fi and Miracast™ (Wi-Fi Direct®). In addition, the SW-510W supports Miracast over Infrastructure which allows Miracast over a facility Wi-Fi network or LAN, rather than over a direct wireless link.

(Note: For Android devices, casting is not available for video from apps such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.)


 


Applications

  • Meeting spaces – The SW-510W provides the flexibility to accept any presenter device, whether wired or wireless. This capability is ideal for a wide range of meeting environments, from a huddle room to a large presentation space in a convention center.
  • Classrooms and auditoriums – A credenza or lectern-based AV system for resident sources, plus wireless connectivity for a participant’s laptop or tablet. An instructor can moderate wireless AV presentations between up to four student mobile devices.
  • Small to medium-sized meeting spaces – The SW-510W is compact and ideal for under-table mounting. It conveniently provides automatic switching and display control for simplified user operation, especially with laptops and mobile devices brought into the system.
  • Conference rooms and boardrooms – The SW-510W features two matrixed outputs for seamless integration into a display and a hardware-based videoconferencing system, with additional versatility by enabling wireless AV content presentations to the far end. The matrix switching capability provides the convenience of auto-switching for local BYOD content that feeds into the codec, while simultaneously allowing far-end content to be shared.
  • Presentation spaces where two displays are needed – This switcher can be installed in a lectern to serve a confidence monitor, plus the primary display in a remote location. With matrixed outputs, the SW-510W also can support two simultaneous presenters on two screens.
