ISE 2018: WyreStorm to Showcase New line of Enhanced 4K Extenders
WyreStorm, arguably the leading industry specialist in HDBaseT distribution will use ISE 2018 to showcase its latest extender line, featuring enhanced 18Gbps over HDMI full 4K transmission capabilities supporting the very highest resolutions possible over copper and fibre for a multitude of point-to-point distribution to fit any application.
WyreStorm’s updated EX-35-H2 and new EX-35-H2-ARC extender models support 18Gbps HDMI for 4K UHD 60hz 4:4:4 or 4K UHD 60Hz 4:2:2 with 12bit HDR over Class B HDBaseT to 35m/115ft or 1080p to 70m/230ft. The EX-35-H2-ARC adds Audio Return functionality as the part number suggests.
All new and updated extender models feature HDCP 2.2 support for compatibility with the latest 4K content and sources, as well as 2-way PoH and bidirectional IR and RS-232 control.
Another extender to get a sizable update is WyreStorm’s EX-70-H2X HDBaseT 5Play extender, also supporting 18Gbps HDMI transmission of 4K UHD 60hz 4:4:4 or 4K UHD 60hz 4:2:2 with 12bit HDR over Class A HDBaseT to 70m/230ft or 1080p to 100m/328ft.
The 5Play feature already includes video, multichannel audio, 2-way PoH, bidirectional control over both IR and RS-232, and Ethernet passthrough. However, version 2 of the EX-70-H2X addst HDMI source loop out to cascade transmissions up to three times to compatible HDBaseT and even NetworkHD AV over IP devices to further enhance the flexibility of our extenders and how they can be used.
WyreStorm is all about a multi-platform approach to signal management so installers have the options at their disposal to use right technology for their application. As such, with the increased demand for distributing the latest 4K HDR content over ever-further distances dove-tailing nicely with significant reductions in optical transmission module and cable costs, the new WyreStorm EXF-300-H2 HDMI over fibre extender means there has never been a better time to embrace the future of data transmission.
Utilising multi-mode fibre, the EXF-300-H2 supports 18Gbps HDMI transmissions up to 4K UHD 60hz 4:4:4 or 4K UHD 60hz 4:2:2 with 12bit HDR to an astounding 300m/984ft to ensure everything that 4K HDR source devices have to offer can now be sent point-to-point over vast distances via lossless optical transmission that is immune to electrical and radio interference.
