WyreStorm HDBaseT Extender Set with 2-Way IR and RS232 (70m/230ft)

Part Number EX-1UTP-IR-70

* * * DISCONTINUED * * *

The WyreStorm EX-1UTP-IR-70 single cable extender set uses 2nd generation Class B HDBaseT classification technology for a more affordable HDBaseT extender solution over 70m/230ft; 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.  

The EX-1UTP-IR-70 transmits full, uncompressed HD 1080p video @60Hz, HD multichannel audio with bidirectional control of source and display from either location via discrete IR and via RS232 over distances of up to 70m/230ft using a single shielded or unshielded Cat5ei/6/7 cable.


Designed with the needs of the installer in mind, this more affordable HDBaseT solution shares many of the strengths as full HDBaseT, such as a ‘one-cable’ distribution method, the same signal stability and resistance to interference, but removes Ethernet distribution and reduces signalling rate and resolution over long distances, while still allowing fully controllable HD distribution over a single cable run.

Transmitter and Receiver baluns also contain protection against ESD (electrostatic discharge) to further stabilise transmission with LEDs on the unit housing for clear power and video signal indication.  5v mains supply but receivers may also be powered through the USB port of the display using Wyrestorm USB to 5v power adapter (both power adapters included)

Additionally, the EX-1UTP-IR-70 is fully cascadable, with transmission lengthened by connecting to multiple 70m/230ft extender sets for increased distribution and even greater flexibility, whatever the installation environment.


  • HDBaseT extenders capable of 1080p HD @60Hz and HD multichannel audio transmissions up to 70m (230ft) under recommended conditions*
  • Transmits discrete wide-band two-way IR control signal together within the HDMI signal over a single Cat5e/6cable
  • Centralized RS232 for firmware updates or third party control with open source integration protocols available for market leading control systems
  • Fully supports 3D applications (frame sequential – Blu-ray and Interlaced Stereoscopic – Satellite/cable broadcasts)
  • Supports 36bit Deep Colour
  • HDMI V1.4
  • Cable termination follows IEEE-568B standards
  • HDCP compliant
  • Automatically adjusts feedback, equalization and amplification of signal for easy installation.
  • LED indications for visual power and video signal status.
  • Baluns powered by 5v mains adapter or with the 5v USB power cable (both included) to solve space or power availability problems as well as being more energy efficient as the extenders are only powered when connected devices are turned on.
  • Fully cascadable to further lengthen transmission and increase your distribution capabilities.
  • 3 year warranty
*Recommended transmission conditions denote cable run within specified distance range of product, no electrical interference, the use of straight cable runs with no bends or kinks and no patch panels or wall outlets used.  Please be advised that the presence of any of these factors in your installation may compromise bandwidth and signal strength. 

For longer transmission distances, LAN control and Ethernet pass-through, please see our full range of HDBaseT matrices, transmitters, receivers and extender sets.
