ISE 2017: Wyrestorm to debut new product lines16 January 2017
Wyrestorm is set to bring its strongest new product offering to this year’s ISE, with launches including a new modular matrix line as well as a number of 4K UHD solutions.
The first product is the H2X 4K HDR HDBaseT matrix line, which includes extensive audio matrixing and DSP for improved audio management within multi-room applications in residential or commercial environments. Available in 16×16 and 10×10 models, the H2X also features an optional HDBaseT Input card for remote transmission of a source located away from the rack.
Addressing the increase in combined 4K/2K installations, WyreStorm’s SmartEDID detects and reacts to device capabilities to output the highest possible resolution.
Wyrestorm has also announced a range of integrator options for the H2X, such as distribution of remote sources through a WyreStorm HDBaseT in-wall transmitter to the HDBaseT Input card of an H2X matrix and out to our scaling HDBaseT receiver for seamless connection to both 4K or HD screens.
To address the continued growth of 4K UHD over the past year and the demand for cost-conscious means of reliably distributing 4K content, Wyrestorm is also launching new HDBaseT Class B 4K UHD matrices in the form of the 6×6 and 8×8 H2L models, as well as the H2A in 4×4 kit form with 4x HDBaseT receivers and enhanced audio management.
Additionally, there will also be an upgrade to the NetworkHD line, with two new AV over IP technologies, the NHD 240 Series and NHD 400 Series, support 4K UHD and 4K HDR respectively; with both solutions supporting active resolution detection for mixed 2K/4K installations.
Utilising JPEG2000 technology, the NHD 400 Series offers the company’s highest image quality over IP for visually lossless 4K UHD with HDR, multi-channel audio up to 7.1 and audio downmix capabilities. Additionally, the JPEG2000s ultra low latency performance makes the 400 Series ideal for small to mid-size commercial projects.
Building upon the NHD-200, the NHD-240 provides low bandwidth distribution of 4K UHD over larger network infrastructures making it suited to large-scale commercial environments like education, corporate and hospitality. The 240 Series is compatible with all existing 100 and 200 Series components, including the new NHD-220-RX multi-view decoder and NHD-SW-0501 5×1 presentation switcher with ScreenLink wireless/wired screen-mirroring.
