WyreStorm HDBaseT Extender Set with Integrated 2.1 Audio Amplifer Kit (70m/230ft)

Part Number EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP

Transmit.  Receive.  Amplify.  Extend. 

The WyreStorm EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP is a single cable extender set, and then some.

Comprising of a Class B 70m HDBaseT transmitter with bidirectional control via IR and RS232 and the award-winning WyreStom HDBaseT Digital Amplifier as the receiving device, the EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP enables a single HDMI source to be distributed over distance, with the flexibility of the AMP offering superior audio and control capabilities at the display zone. 

The inclusion of the AMP as a receiving device also opens up further opportunities to extend transmission over HDBaseT up to 7 times for scalable single source distribution, with each display point benefiting from two-way IR, addressable serial control along with 3:1 audio switching including local audio input, ARC and 25w 2.1ch audio functionality of the AMP – all over a single Cat5e/6 cable.

Want to distribute an HDMI source to up to 7 screens covering total distances up to 500m with superior audio capabilities and enhanced control but don’t need a matrix switcher?  

Functioning essentially as a one-output matrix, the EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP extender set consists of an HDBaseT 70m/230ft Transmitter paired with the groundbreaking WyreStorm AMP-001-010 HDBaseT Class D Digital Audio Amplifier as a receiving and repeating device for the most effective and flexible method of single-cable distribution and control of an individual source available.

Connecting the HDMI source to the HDBaseT transmitter enables the source to be transmitted over HDBaseT and received by the AMP-001-010, where the transmission can be broken out via HDMI to a local display as well as repeated a further 70m/230ft to additional AMPs if desired, up to 7 times for distribution spanning up to half a kilometer or a third of a mile in total.

In terms of control, the EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP features full control of source, display and AMP via bidirectional IR and addressable serial control of the AMP, with control protocols available for all leading control systems.

The AMP itself is a compact, feature rich and highly versatile device that simplifies, combines and improves the relationship between HDMI, HDBaseT and stereo audio for integrators. 

Whether distributing from the HDBaseT transmitter to one or multiple AMPs, each incorporates 3:1 audio switching from a centralized AV source, ARC or a locally connected audio input, such as an iPod, Sonos, or laptop, and can be used centrally, in-line or as a display device for one of the most powerful versatile applications of HDBaseT technology around.

Including 2.1 audio amplification with sub-woofer and analogue stereo pre-outs, the AMP offers superior audio to commercial TV displays with significant improvements in amplification sound replication at display zones offered by 25w per channel stereo and sub-woofer outputs for a sound that really delivers.

Whatever your installation needs, if distribution of an AV source over distance to one or multiple display zones with local input at every location, superior audio and control functionality is required, the EX-1UTP-IR-70-AMP offers the most versatile and innately scalable HDBaseT solution available at this or indeed any price point.
