Atlona has announced the immediate availability of the new AT-HDVS-SC-RX HDBaseT receiver and scaler, featuring the company’s innovative Atlona CrystalScale Technology (ACT) for premium-quality 4K/UHD scaling and picture optimization.


Combining stellar-looking up-and down-scaling, HDBaseT signal reception and powerful integration features such as automatic display control in a single, cost-effective solution, the HDVS-SC-RX is ideal for standalone displays in classrooms, huddle rooms and other meeting spaces or as a key component of larger-scale distribution and presentation systems.

The HDVS-SC-RX supports a local HDMI source as well as an HDBaseT input for receiving video, audio, control and Ethernet over category cable, with automatic input selection enabling the receiver/scaler to switch without manual intervention when a new source is detected. Other powerful user convenience and integration features include audio de-embedding; TCP/IP and RS-232 scaler and display control; contact closure ports for controlling a motorized screen or display lift; and the ability to power remote transmitters through Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Atlona’s advanced CrystalScale video processing technology delivers pristine picture quality while preserving fine color and spatial detail, enabling superior results when converting visually-complex content between 4K/UHD and 1080p to match the resolution of target display devices. Exclusive image optimization features in the HDVS-SC-RX including gamma and uniformity correction allow users to fine-tune or enhance video for the specific destination device and compensate for perceptual color issues on certain LED or LCD displays. Additional processing functions adding value to the HDVS-SC-RX include motion-adaptive video de-interlacing, 3:2 pull-down, aspect ratio control, and internal test pattern generation.

The HDVS-SC-RX can be combined seamlessly with other market-leading Atlona products including the HDVS-200 family of switching HDBaseT transmitters, Gain series audio amplifiers, and HDBaseT-enabled matrix switchers and distribution amplifiers to support 4K/UHD presentation architectures of any scale.

“While the robust integration capabilities, cost-effectiveness and rich feature set of the HDVS-SC-RX make it an ideal HDBaseT scaling receiver for any project or system, its exceptional video quality truly sets it apart,” said Steve Kolta, product manager, Atlona. “Our CrystalScale processing technology makes the HDVS-SC-RX the perfect solution for presentation applications where 4K content is to be viewed on HD displays or vice versa, preserving detail and color fidelity while optimizing the output for the particular target device.”

The HDVS-SC-RX can be remotely configured, managed and monitored over a LAN, WAN or the Internet via the Atlona Management System (AMS 2.0) network software platform, and integrates tightly with Atlona’s ground-breaking, IP-based Velocity AV control platform. The new receiver/scaler is backed by Atlona’s award-winning 10-year limited product warranty, ensuring long-term reliability and performance for integrators and users.
