WyreStorm offers electronics professionals a broad selection of signal managment products. Adding to its product line, the global company has announced two new matrix switchers during ISE 2017: the 16×16 MX-1616-HDBT-H2X and the 10×10 MX-1010-HDBT-H2X.
“The H2X is an important release for WyreStorm, both in terms of its powerful feature set for residential and commercial applications, but also as an example of not merely following the trend of keeping up with technology,” says Dave Schorah, product manager, WyreStorm. “The H2X is something completely new. A product that really breaks new ground and opens up incredible integration opportunities for the dealer that we are confident they will appreciate.
“Our inclusion of an equal number of HDMI inputs, HDBaseT outputs and mirrored HDMI outputs means that unlike competing products, our MX-1616-HDBT-H2X and MX-1010-HDBT-H2X are true 16×16+16 and 10×10+10 matrixes.”
The matrix switchers feature WyreStorm's SmartEDID technology that detects and adjusts displays and source capabilities to ensure the output is delivering the highest possible resolution. The H2X products support 4K UHD 4:2:0 8-bit at 60Hz and 10-bit HDR 24Hz up to 70 meters (229 feet) with Class A HDBaseT that includes 5Play and ARC to all zones.
The products also utilize WyreStorm's modular architecture that enables electronics professionals to build customized matrix switcher configurations.
WireStorm also points out the H2X products integrate audio matrixes with three possible source inputs per zone in the form of audio deembedded HDMI, and adjustable line-level audio via S/PDIF inputs for use with wireless whole-house audio products, AirPlay and DLNA-enabled products.
The matrix switchers incorporate audio DSPs to allow integrators to adjust gain, EQ and delay per zone, as well as an AVR priority mode to support dynamic EDID adjustments, and CEC options that provides a way to manage audio sources, TVs, projectors and other components.
