Know Your Tech: HDBaseT or AV over IP
James Meredith, WyreStorm HDBaseT and IP Guru has the answer to the integration dilemma for the 21st Century as installers debate the best method of distributing and controlling HD content to suit their needs.
WyreStorm offer turnkey HDBaseT and AV over IP solutions combined with the expertise and support necessary to the take the uncertainty out of product specification.
With 4K UltraHD now confirmed the standard for AV for the foreseeable future and 2016 set to be the year of HDR, for projects requiring full support of the latest 4K UHD sources, content and displays, WyreStorm’s H2-Series 4K UHD HDMI and HDBaseT matrix switchers, receivers and extenders supports HDMI 2.0 video standards at 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 HDR through HDMI ports themselves or 4K@24Hz 4:2:0 HDR 10-bit per channel BT.2020 over HDBaseT up to 70m or 1080p@60hz 48bit up to 100m.
Of course, WyreStorm H2 matrices continue to support Class A HDBaseT 5-Play for video, multichannel audio up to DTS-X and Dolby Atmos, two-way IR, Ethernet, power and routed serial control with full compatibility with HDMI 2.0 and UHD standards. If you’re wondering what that means, it’s pretty much as close to future-proofed integration as you can get or are likely to get for quite a while.
WyreStorm’s MX-PP-POH-CUSTOM modular HDBaseT matrix range features 8x8 and 16x16 models offering scalable, highly flexible HD distribution and control up to 70m with a variety of digital and analog transmission modules to select from.
Both models offer lossless, pixel-perfect full 1080p@ 60Hz/36bit video, multi-channel audio, two-way control,routed RS-232 and PoH power along a single Cat5/6 cable, with WyreStorm QuickSync™ technology for instantaneous switching – all of which makes it ideal for residential high-end home cinema where image quality is essential, but equally applicable for large scale commercial projects. Systems can be expanded by daisy-chaining each output up to seven times for larger distributions, with matrixes themselves cascadable a further seven times for creation of vast arrays of up to 784 display spanning distances over 5km.
While compatibility with third party control systems - including WyreStorm’s Enado control solution - is a key strength, as is full integration with over 40 WyreStorm HDBaseT products (the largest on the market), the real draw here is it’s bespoke modular design and the incredible versatility that affords the integrator.
MX-PP-POH-CUSTOM systems are made to order with installers able to spec any combination of individual matrixes and multi-format digital and analogue transmission modules via the smart GoConfigure™ online design tool for truly bespoke integration tailored to the unique specifics of individual projects.
These days there is more than one way to skin your AV cat over distance and WyreStorm applies the simplicity of single-cable technology to AV over IP with their NetworkHD™ solution. With H.264 video compression removing the limitations of a fixed I/O matrix platform without compromising image quality or reliability, NetworkHD offers significant cost savings when designing medium to large scale systems (over 16x16) and is ideally suited for commercial Pro AV applications where pixel-perfect video is not essential, but a large number of displays is.
WyreStorm’s award-winning NetworkHD™ is a scalable, high quality, low-bandwidth AV over IP solution using a standard Ethernet network to distribute content to individual screens and video walls in any medium-to-large commercial environment.
Featuring plug-and-play setup and expansion, PoE, CEC, 2-way RS-232 Touch for iPad drag and drop source selection with live video preview.
With a feature set including plug and play set up and expansion, low latency of 54ms, PoE, CEC, KVM, 2-way RS-232 control and video wall functionality, NetworkHD offers a variety of control options, with integration with leading third party and WyreStorm’s Enado NetworkHD control system, as well as WyreStorm’s dedicated Touch™ iPad app for live video preview and drag and drop source selection for entire NetworkHD systems.
Distributing full 1080p HDMI and USB 2.0 locally with HDMI pass-through or over multiple distances of 100m using standard Ethernet infrastructure, NetworkHD boasts a modular system architecture capable of growing organically with the computer network by simply by connecting additional transmitters or receivers, supporting near-limitless numbers of sources and displays dictated only by the bandwidth available.
If you’re in need of AV signal distribution over distance, WyreStorm offers the best of all worlds to ensure the right technology is used for the right application.
