ISE 2017 -  WyreStorm Preview


As the biggest event in the European calendar, ISE 2017 is set to host our strongest offering to date with a number of exciting WyreStorm "firsts" gracing booth #5-S100.


The H2X Factor
The show will see us launch our new modular H2X 4K HDR HDBaseT matrix line, with the H2X boasting extensive audio matrixing and DSP for improved audio management within multi-room applications in residential or commercial environments.


Available in 16x16 and 10x10 models. the H2X also features an optional HDBaseT Input card for remote transmission of a source located away from the rack.

Addressing the increase in combined 4K/2K installations, WyreStorm's SmartEDID dynamically detects and reacts to device capabilities to output the highest possible resolution. Furthermore, as the perfect accompaniment to the H2X, the new RX-70-4K-SCL HDBaseT scaling receiver provides 4K<>2K scaling and frameless switching that really makes mincemeat of mixed-resolution installations.


As a provider of total solutions rather than merely individual products, we are excited to offer the integrator options such as distribution of remote sources through a WyreStorm HDBaseT in-wall transmitter to an the HDBT Input card of an H2X matrix and out to our scaling HDBasT receiver for seamless connection to both 4K or HD screens.


More 4K Matrix Options, More Money in Your Pocket
Addressing the continued growth of 4K UHD over the past year and the demand for cost-conscious means of reliably distributing 4K content, we are also launching new HDBaseT Class B 4K UHD matrices in the form of the 6x6 and 8x8 H2L models, as well as the H2A in 4x4 kit form with 4x HDBaseT receivers and enhanced audio management.


NetworkHD™ Evolved: 4K AV over IP for Residential and Commercial
Continuing the 4K focus, the latest evolution of our award-winning NetworkHD line sees us showcase two new AV over IP technologies in the 240 Series and 400 Series, supporting 4K UHD and 4K HDR respectively; with both solutions supporting active resolution detection for mixed 2K/4K installations.


Utilizing JPEG2000 technology, the 400 Series offers our highest image quality over IP for stunning, visually lossless 4K UHD with HDR, multi-channel audio up to 7.1 and audio downmix capabilities. Additionally, the JPEG2000s ultra low latency performance makes the 400 Series ideal for small to mid-size commercial projects.


Building upon the success of NHD-200, the NHD-240 provides low bandwidth distribution of 4K UHD over larger network infrastructures making it ideal for large-scale commercial environments like education, corporate and hospitality. The 240 Series is compatible with all existing 100 and 200 Series components, including our new NHD-220-RX multi-view decoder and NHD-SW-0501 5x1 presentation switcher with ScreenLink™ wireless/wired screen-mirroring.


Huddle Time: WyreStorm Meeting Room Solutions
The HDBaseT version of our 5x1 presentation switcher with ScreenLink also forms the backbone of our flexible solutions for huddle, conference and meeting rooms on display at ISE.


Products in the demo meeting room include HDBaseT audio amplification, in-desk device connectivity, as well as an affordable fixed point touch screen, to work alongside our award-winning Enado browser-based control system supporting BYOD and QR scanning for control of an entire meeting room in seconds.


These are just a few reasons why we're counting the days till ISE opens its doors and we can share our latest Pro AV and Residential developments with visitors to WyreStorm booth #5-S100. We hope to see you there!
