Wyrestorm  CEDIA EXPO  Matrix Switcher  4K 


Wyrestorm has teased its message for the upcoming CEDIA Expo, saying “We're all about presenting The Right Technology for the Application.” With 4K UHD still the hot topic of conversation, it will show support for HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 and HDR in its latest H2 series matrix switchers, extenders and splitters.

“We’re excited to be unveiling our new flagship H2X HDBaseT matrix switchers at CEDIA,” says Christian Thomas, Group Marketing Communications Manager, “and our first featuring integrated audio matrix functionality.”

“As our first foray into audio routing, we’re excited at the addition of an audio matrix within a WyreStorm HDBaseT video matrix device,” adds Hal Truax, WyreStorm VP of Sales and Marketing. “With HDBaseT distribution, signals can be transmitted to one zone, but the audio output on that transmission module can potentially be from another zone, with an audio device such as Sonos routed to it, which really adds another layer of functionality to AV signal distribution for the home.”

Wyrestorm will also move AV over IP distribution centrestage, as the technology shifts from commercial applications to residential. The brand will be displaying an interactive side-by-side comparison of the latest IP technologies 4K over 1GB and 4K over 10GB alongside HDMI and HDBaseT.??

Truax says as education about evolving 4K standards remains vital, there will be “demonstrations of  the various technologies currently available, and the various refresh rate, chroma subsampling and color depth decisions required to get the content where it needs to go within the bandwidth available for each technology.”

Expo will also see WyreStorm launch its Enado v4 control system voice support for Amazon Echo. Voice commands can be used to trigger a variety of Enado functions, from turning on or off a TV in a room, or combining “hundreds” of commands.
