Amsterdam, NL – ISE 2013 Stand 5-U110

A few words from Wyrestorm
ISE is an eagerly anticipated opportunity for us to meet with our valued existing distribution partners, as well as installers and prospective distributors from individual markets throughout the world to discuss how Wyrestorm total AV solutions can improve their business. It also allows us to showcase what we’ve been doing over the past year in terms of product releases, with returning attendees from ISE last year clearly seeing the realisation of our product concepts in the successful launches of our AV solutions over the past 12 months.

ISE 2013 promises to be even better, with visitors to the Wyrestorm booth able to see not only where we are but where we’re heading, with the introduction of a number of truly innovative HD Distribution and Control solutions to support multi-zone commercial and residential installations of any size or budget.

This year sees us exhibiting another broad range of matrices, extenders , splitters, switchers & scalers and more, all over HDBT and non-HDBT single and dual Cat5/6/7 cable, Single and Multi-mode optical fibre, coax and HDMI.

In addition we are unveiling several unique products quite unlike anything currently available on the market at our price point, such as a HDBT POE extenders with EDID management, 24x24 multi-mode fibre matrix, a smart browser-based wireless device control system, an HDBT Lite matrix custom-built to client specification with choice of multi-format transmission cards, and the first and only HDBT receiver/repeater in the world with built-in Class D audio amplifier and bidirectional control and pass-through via IR/RS232 and 3:1 speaker breakouts.

We promised not to rest on the success of last year and we feel the products on display at ISE 2013 Illustrates our continuing commitment to innovation by broadening the applications of the latest technology with superior reliability, compatibility and price points that add significant value to your business and expand the industry as a whole.

New at ISE: Wyrestorm HDBT Digital Audio Class D Amplifier/Receiver/Repeater (AMP-001-010)

Wyrestorm proudly introduces a world first in HDBaseT Technology: the new HDBT Receiver/Repeater with Class D audio amplifier including bidirectional control and pass-through via IR/RS232

As the first time HDBT technology has been utilised purely for audio, this highly versatile and feature-rich digital audio device is capable of extracting high quality Hi-Fi audio from HD signals with HDBT® reception and pass-through with local HDMI® breakout and ARC functionality.

The class D amplifier offers low voltage energy efficiency with 25w per channel 3.1 audio with sub-woofer pre-out and can be installed centrally, in-line with speakers or as a local in-room connected via a single Cat5e over distances up to 70m using HDBT Lite technology.

Fully cascadable up to 7 times within a single zone, it is controlled via a remote, RS232 or the Wyrestorm Enado user interface to improve and simplify the relationship between HDMI, HDBT and stereo audio for both residential and commercial integrators far beyond anything currently available on the market.

New at ISE: Wyrestorm Custom 8x8 HDBaseT “Lite” HD Matrix Switcher chassis (PP-0808-HDBT)

Continuing from the popularity of our Pro Plus range of matrices, due to market calls for options and increased flexibility within the HDBT Lite platform, the 8x8 modular matrix chassis with customisable transmission cards allows expansion of HDMI, or the conversion of digital audio out, digital audio in and VGA input to HDBT, with additional inputs for HDMI® and RS232.

Options for the installer and possible expansion or upgrade of distributions have always been an a major consideration for us, so the customizable transmission design at the rear of the matrix units enable cards to be simply swapped out and slotted-in for future upgrades or bespoke matrix specification for initial customer order so the unit can be tailor made for precise project requirements.

Custom card options will include HDMI expansion for cascading matrix models, Stereo Audio Output with digital output, Stereo Audio Input for audio only sources, and VGA input for non-HDMI devices. All cards convert to single cable HDBaseT transmission to be distributed the length of the distribution to display zones.

Dealers are able to specify transmission cards and place a customised matrix order online through a specially developed widget in the Wyrestorm website, with the order custom built at our factory and shipped directly to their door.
