As the latest additions to WyreStorm’s ‘Essentials’ matrix switcher range, the new products pack a wealth of experience into their compact 1U chassis. Small in price yet big on specification, the kits can handle current video content up to 4K/60 4:2:0 covering a majority of current source devices, even supporting 10-bit HDR content at up to 30Hz and multi-channel audio. Powerful HDBaseT technology sends this content, IR control and PoH to receivers at up to 35m/115ft range.
The EXP-MX-0404-KIT is equipped with three HDBaseT zone outputs and a single switched HDMI output, which can be paired with WyreStorm’s HAOC hybrid optical HDMI cables or any extender for transmission via HDBaseT or OM3 fibre. The EXP-MX-0808-KIT doubles the capacity to six HDBaseT zone outputs and twin switched HDMI outputs.
With audio versatility to match their video capability, the kits offer the ability to extract audio signals from the output, following the zone. In addition, S/PDIF connectivity provides the flexibility to send multi-channel 5.1 audio to local AVRs or downmix to stereo using WyreStorm’s EXP-CON-DAC-D specialised D/A converter.
Certain applications in the residential, education and commercial markets don’t always require a source to be routed through to an output. The kits make it possible to ‘mute’ the video output as well as the audio, meaning that the HDMI signals to the zones can be independently switched off via the API.
