How Visual Controllers are Making Meeting Spaces Come Alive

Display controllers are making small meeting spaces highly functional by offering interactive features.

FREMONT, CA:  A unique display control system AT-DISP-CTRL enables the automation of meeting spaces. The compact, cost-efficient visual controller by Atlona automates and configures smaller conference spaces. The 4K/UHD-ready AT-DISP-CTRL gives users plug-and-play operation options so as to facilitate meetings in rooms that don't have features like AV switching. The display controller, thus, eliminates the need to manage hand-held controls during talks and presentations. The solution helps create display automation with BYOD connectivity in business meeting spaces that do not need full AV control with the DISP-CTRL. DISP-CTRL equips customers to create huddle rooms where presenters can simply connect their laptops and commence presentations.

DISP-CTRL identifies the connection of devices using an active signal that transmits a control command to start the display automatically. The controller then increases or decreases the display power state based on the HDMI connection or disconnection automatically. The controls of the display, volume, and input selection are handled without a remote control as well. Programmable display control modes turn off displays after a specified duration of inactivity or after a manual disconnection. The DISP-CTRL presents pre-stored or user-programmed display control commands through TCP/IP, RS-232, IR, or CEC. Moreover, the controller contains EDID and HDCP management features, which is locally powered or powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The DISP-CTRL is HDCP 2.2 compliant, and supports 4K/UHD video @ 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, and HDMI data that rates up to 18 Gbps. The controller is also used to manage a high number of AV nodes. The compact display controller offers a comprehensive collection of display drivers from Atlona’s Velocity AV control system database, enabling menu-based configuration of settings, and display device driver selection. Integrators and tech managers can utilize simple configurability and management capabilities through in-built GUI, with two Ethernet ports that allow simultaneous LAN access and IP display control.

Atlona is a global manufacturer of AV over IP distribution, control, and connectivity solutions. The company's designs and offerings are meant for various residential and commercial AV and IT markets.
