The latest additions to WyreStorm’s Essentials matrix switcher range, the EXP-MX-0404-KIT and EXP-MX-0808-KIT, are now available exclusively to UK CI integrators through Habitech.

Utilising a 1U chassis, the HDBaseT kits can handle current video content up to 4K/60 4:2:0 covering a majority of current source devices, as well as 10-bit HDR content at up to 30Hz, plus multi-channel audio. IR control and PoH can be sent to the receivers at up to 35m 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.

Both units 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.
