WyreStorm HDBaseT Extender Set with 2-Way IR (50m/164ft)

Part Number EX-1UTP-IR-50

* * * DISCONTINUED * * * 

The WyreStorm EX-1UTP-IR-50 single cable extender set features Class B HDBaseT technology and EDID management for an affordable, reliable HDBaseT extender solution with bidirectional control over shorter distances of up to 50m/164ft.  

Designed for smaller projects that may not require the feature set of full HDBaseT yet still benefit from the signal stability and functions offered by this powerful technology, including distribution of full 1080p HD video, HD audio and two-way IR passed along a single Cat5e/6 cable from the transmitter to display reciever over distances up to 70m/230ft.


Designed with the needs of the installer in mind.

The EX-1UTP-IR-50 Extender set comprises of a Transmitter and Receiver to distribute full, uncompressed HD 1080p video @60Hz, HD multichannel audio with bidirectional discrete IR control of source and display from either location over distances of up to 50m/164ft using a single shielded or unshielded Cat5e/6 cable..

Transmitters include EDID management to manually handle device communication via DIP switch setting, with Receivers containing long cable mode to further encourage successful transmission.  Both units also feature protection against ESD (electrostatic discharge) to further stabilise transmission with LED indication on the unit housing providing clear confirmation of power and signal link status.  Both units also contain DIP settings .

Additionally, the EX-1UTP-IR-50 is fully cascadable, with transmission lengthened by connecting to multiple 50m/164ft extender sets for increased distribution and even greater flexibility, whatever the installation environment.
