Swindon, WILTS – WyreStorm, a global manufacturer specializing in the design and development of innovative HD and HDBaseTTM distribution products for electronic systems integrators, are using the Invision-hosted HTS 2014 trade show at RAF museum, London from 13/14 May to offer attendees the chance to see the company’s new MX-0404-PP- KIT HD distribution package that answers the question of how to offer installers more for less to achieve even more affordable single cable AV distribution and control.
Inspired by popularity of WyreStorm’s QI 40m matrix and receiver set and based on their Pro Plus HDBaseT range of matrices, the MX-0404-PP-KIT offers integrators all the benefits of their existing 4×4 HDBaseT matrix, including resistance to interference and stable single cable transmissions of full 1080p HD Video @ 60Hz, HD audio and bidirectional control via discrete IR and RS242 from centralized AV location to displays located up to 70m/230ft away using unshielded or shielded Cat5e/6 cable.
As with the QI, the PP-KIT includes 4 x display receivers within the package to offer the integrator not only faster, easier installations and greater value for money, the new slimline width of the receivers themselves of just 15mm, offer a reduced form factor behind the screen for even more convenience at the display zone.
Receivers feature threaded bushings that allow use of both standard and locking DC power plugs for improved connection options and switchable selection of RS232 for firmware updates or third party control with open source integration protocols available for market leading control systems. Receivers also include LED indication for visual power supply to receiver, signal status to show established connection to display, HDBaseT link to matrix and HDCP confirmation to illustrate the presence of encryption within a signal.
This MX-0404-PP-KIT HDBaseT Matrix and display receiver combination allows any connected HDMI inputs to be distributed independently and simultaneously over distance to any of the 4 HD output display receivers connected to the matrix, regardless of HDCP encryption, with the included remote control handset also able to be learned into a universal remote handset to allow the control of multiple devices from one handset.
Capable of reading and copying EDID from connected devices with additional EDID configuration through customisable DIP switch settings if necessary, the MX-0404-PP-KIT includes 36bit Deep Colour, a 6.75 Gbps bandwidth range/signalling rate and HDMI v1.4 with full 3D compatibility with frame packing/sequential (Blu-Ray) and interlaced stereoscopic (satellite/cable broadcasts).
With control via wide range, bidirectional discrete IR between source and display and vice versa (30 KHz to 56 KHz frequency), further control is achievable over LAN with Control 4 LAN protocols and RS232 including full compatibility and integration with leading control systems.
Matrix outputs can also be cascaded up to 7 times by connecting HDBaseT outputs to compatible WyreStorm devices to further lengthen or extend transmission if required, with each output port fed/cascaded to multiple displays using WyreStorm extender sets or the AMP-001- 010 HDBaseT Digital Amplifier as a transmission device. This also enables the use of different cabling alternatives such as Fibre, Coax or Class A HDBaseT and different distribution distances by using various WyreStorm extender products.
MX-0404-PP-KIT offers flexible signal distribution, combined with innovative features and an ease of use to deliver reliable and cost-effective HD video, audio and control along a single Cat5e/6 cable that removes the need for additional control and video cables on installations, whether in a residential or commercial setting.
