The OPUS-RX41 offers 4K/UHD at 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and high dynamic range formats such as HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision. It complements other Opus Series matrix switchers, including the AT-OPUS-46M (4×6), AT-OPUS-68M (6×8), and AT-OPUS-810M (8×10). It can display 4K/UHD HDR content from either a centralized matrix switcher or one of the connected local sources.
For Small-to-Medium-Sized Projects
“The Opus Series has changed the game for a wide range of small-to-medium-sized residential and light commercial applications requiring flexible, multi-zone AV distribution that is futureproofed for emerging formats and resolutions,” said David Shamir, VP of product management, Atlona. “The OPUS-RX41 expands the line with a full complement of local switching, audio return, control extension, and unique integration capabilities.”
OPUS-RX41 Key Features
The OPUS-RX41 includes a number of key features that enhance functionality as well as help simplify residential and light commercial deployments. Extension of CEC as well as bidirectional IR and RS-232 signals over HDBaseT allows a control system connected to the OPUS-RX41 to select inputs on the matrix or control its sources, and allows the matrix to control the local room display.
Advanced HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) routes audio from a smart TV to TOSLINK for local audio playback as well as through HDBaseT to an OPUS matrix switcher for whole-house audio distribution.
Remote Power Convenience
EDID management, selectable 4K-to-1080p downscaling, and HDCP 2.2 support with selectable down-conversion to HDCP 1.4 ensure compatibility with legacy HD displays. Remote power allows the device to be powered by an Opus matrix switcher, for convenient installation at a display or projector without a local power supply.
