WyreStorm is using its switching expertise in the design of its first HDBaseT 4K UltraHD matrix switchers to include dedicated audio matrix switching. Both the 16×16 (MX-1616-HDBT-H2X) and 10×10 (MX-1010-HDBT-H2X) models are debuting at ISE 2017.
The H2X Series of 4K Ultra HD matrix switchers was developed specifically for large, high end residential and commercial applications requiring multi-source video distribution of the latest 4K HDR content as well as multi-source audio matrix switching to multiple zones.
Addressing the increase in mixed 4K/2K installations, WyreStorm’s SmartEDID feature dynamically detects and reacts to display and source capabilities to output the highest possible resolution for each individual source. 4K-2K scaling and frameless switching is also available using the WyreStorm RX-70-4K-SCL HDBaseT scaling receiver, also launching here at the show.
H2X models offer 4K UHD 4:2:0 8bit 60Hz and 10-bit HDR 24Hz up to 70m with Class A HDBaseT supporting the 5Play feature set and ARC to all zones. HDMI 18Gbps inputs and mirrored outputs also offer capacity for full range 4K UHD transmissions with automatic or manual CEC power triggers for every HDMI and HDBaseT output.
Furthermore, the modular architecture of the H2X sees it support custom configuration, with an optional HDBaseT Input/HDBaseT Output transmission card also available – useful for installations where source devices are situated away from the rack.
