Atlona is now shipping its AT-HDR-M2C audio converter, providing a seamless way to extract, downmix, and convert multi-channel HDMI source audio to twochannel HDMI, TOSLINK, and analog audio for displays, distributed audio systems, and whole-house audio systems. The HDR-M2C simplifies this process through an HDMI input with pass-through capability. It automatically downmixes multi-channel PCM, Dolby, and DTS audio, and delivers 2.0 stereo signals over HDMI, twochannel analog unbalanced audio, and TOSLINK digital audio outputs. The HDR-M2C enables HDMI audio de-embedding with or without connection to a display or other destination. The HDR-M2C audio converter includes EDID management features as well as audio volume and bass/treble controls, all available via Ethernet through the Atlona Management System (AMS), the web GUI, or a control system. AMS is a powerful network software platform ideal for configuring, managing, and monitoring the HDR-M2C and other Atlona IP-controllable devices over a LAN, WAN, or VPN. AMS is available free from Atlona.
