The Atlona OmniStream 521 (AT-OMNI-521) is a networked AV decoder for an OmniStream-encoded video stream up to UHD 60 Hz and HDR, plus embedded audio and RS-232 or IR control pass-through. It is part of the OmniStream R-Type Series, designed for high performance, flexible distribution of AV over Gigabit Ethernet in residential and commercial applications. The OmniStream 521 is HDCP 2.2 compliant and ideal for the latest as well as emerging UHD and HDR displays. It features visually lossless compression, optimized for motion video, pristine-quality imaging, and extremely low, sub-frame latency from encode to decode. Additionally, this decoder includes high performance upscaling and downscaling, aspect ratio control, and video wall processing, plus presentation enhancement features such as logo insertion and scrolling on-screen text.

Easy to configure, simple to manage

OmniStream AV over IP systems are remarkably easy to set up and manage - whether for a meeting room, residence, divisible room, or an entire university campus. Atlona Management System (AMS) 2.0 features automatic network device discovery, plus an intuitive web-based GUI that lets you configure virtual routing for AV, control, and data over the network - just as easily as you would with conventional AV matrix switching. AMS also streamlines and simplifies management of OmniStream systems through continuous system monitoring, notifications and alerts, event logging, multi-device configuration and backup, automated firmware updates, remote device control, and more.

OmniStream product compatibility

The OmniStream 521 is compatible with the OmniStream 512 encoder.
