WyreStorm will focus on 4K Ultra HD at CEDIA Expo this year, demonstrating all aspects of  4K residential distribution, processing and control with a range of new products. Visitors will get hands-on with its new 4K content friendly H2 line of HDMI and HDBaseT matrices and splitters supporting HDCP 2.2, ARC and HDMI 2.0 standards. 

“Anticipating the slow adoption of HDCP 2.2 protected content, we developed the line using the latest encryption chipsets to ensure we were compatible with source devices from major electronics manufacturers as they came to market,” says Hal Truax, WyreStorm’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “This resulting hardware compatibility allows us to not only deliver a trouble-free installation experience, it also avoids the pitfalls set to be experienced by competing manufacturers that released solutions before 4K standards such as 60Hz@4:2:0 timing signals and support of HDR video content at colour depths of 10bit were ratified.”

The H2 matrix family includes ‘Pure HDMI’ MX-0404-H2 , MX-0606-H2 and MX-0808-H2 models (pictured above) within a 1U chassis, with full support of HDMI 2.0. The units can pass 4K content up to 60hz 4:4:4, with HDCP 2.2 compliance.

Similarly, the new H2 HDMI splitters (SP-0104-H2  and SP-0108-H2 ) follow suit with both 1:4 and 1:8 models offering full support for 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 sources at 18Gb/s to HDMI 2.0 standard and HDCP 2.2 compliance. 

The brand will also unveil new 4K HDBaseT extender, transmitter and receiver solutions, including HDBaseT 2.0, S/PDIF, ARC, Two-way PoH, IR and RS-232. The EX-100-4K-PRO is Wyrestorm’s first extender to use the HDBaseT 2.0 specification and is compatible with the latest 4K standards and backwards compatible with HDBaseT 1.0 transmitters or receivers. It’ll be joined by the EX-70-4K-ARC, a 4K HDMI over HDBaseT extender set with ARC and two-way PoH. This enables digital audio from a display device to be sent back to the receiver and to other locations via switchable audio control between ARC and local source on both units. 4K support exnds to 60Hz with chroma subsampling  up to 4:2:0.

The company also promises a new 4x2 multi-view 4k switcher and scaler, which  features a 4 x 1080p picture-in-picture displayed on a 4K screen. The WyreStorm Enado Control System will also a new software upgrade at the show, to coincide with the global launch of the Enado Mini IP server.
