NetworkHD goes 4K with their 400-Series
WyreStorm launch the 400 Series for low-latency 4K over IP for commercial and residential applications.
The latest in WyreStorm’s award-winning NetworkHD AV over IP line, the 400 Series combines both commercial and residential features, including HDR, multichannel audio and 2K/4K auto scaling alongside PoE, separate audio routing and 16×16 video wall capabilities to set the benchmark in 4K over IP to new heights.
WyreStorm, a leading innovator in AV distribution and control over IP, HDBaseT and HDMI, has leveraged its expertise in AV over IP and UltraHD technologies with the release of the NetworkHD 400 Series NHD-400-TX Encoder and NHD-400-RX Decoder – the latest 4K evolution of its award-winning line of AV over IP solutions.
Distribution of AV over IP has now become a whole lot clearer for commercial or residential applications. Supporting HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support, the 400 Series handles the delivery of visually lossless 4K UHD with HDR enabled content and multichannel audio up to Dolby Atmos and DTS:X with ease, making it ideal for AV distribution around the home. In commercial applications NetworkHD is already trusted worldwide by hundreds of colleges, universities, hospitality venues and corporations to provide 24/7 distribution of mission critical content.
On the development of the 400 series, James Meredith, WyreStorm NetworkHD and Enado Product Manager, stated: “With the 400 Series intended for both commercial and residential applications where low latency, multi-channel audio and our highest quality picture with HDR is essential in the modern installation, we feel we have developed a solution that addresses all our customers’ AV over IP installation needs.” Meredith continued, “When combined with our groundbreaking free NetworkHD Touch app for iPad, we are confident that the 400 Series 4K NetworkHD systems deliver best-in-class picture, sound and ease of use that our customers expect and deserve.”
Improving on the low bandwidth H.264 platform NetworkHD 100 and 200 Series solutions, the 400 Series features latest generation AV technology to increase image quality and content security, whilst almost eliminating end-to-end latency.
Unlike a traditional fixed matrix, the adaptable modular matrix design of NetworkHD allows for a system to be expanded quickly and easily by simply adding more sources or displays to meet the needs of any commercial or residential application without requiring an update to existing network architecture. Using standard networking technologies, NetworkHD enables literally any point on the network to support the latest 4K video and HD audio, with PoE providing power to all components from the switch – thus eliminating ugly power supplies and potential points of failure from a system.
Furthermore, mixing the latest 4K displays and older 1080p screens around the home, campus, bar or company building will never be a problem. The powerful scaling features of the NetworkHD 400 Series enables NHD-400-RX decoders to automatically scale incoming video signals to match the maximum capability of the connected display device.
The powerful video wall capabilities of the 400 Series create the ultimate user experience in commercial applications, featuring bezel correction, image rotation and portrait video walls, as well as traditional landscape modes for video walls up to 16×16. Content can be up and downscaled to perfectly fit each display, and a custom “No Source” idle image graphic overlay can enable branding or customer messaging to be displayed even if no video is being received at a zone.
New to all NetworkHD Series components, the 400 Series features compelling audio matrix functionality with audio able to be routed separately from video to any decoder to leverage networked AV distribution to its full potential.
NetworkHD 400 is a control powerhouse, with bidirectional IR and RS-232, for control of displays and sources from remote locations and CEC support for triggering displays on and off can be accomplished with the tap of a button. Intuitive control can be achieved with the award-winning free NetworkHD Touch app for iPad to create a simple drag and drop switching experience with live video previews of all connected sources and displays. And with the available drivers, integration with third party control systems, including the WyreStorm Enado control solution, is a breeze.
All of this makes the 400 Series the perfect 4K UHD, 1 Gigabit, low latency AV signal management solution for any commercial or residential application.
