Overview

Free the audio from on-demand content within a SmartTV with the WyreStorm EX-70-4K-ARC HDBaseT extender supporting ARC (Audio Return Channel) or optical audio return. 

With HDBaseT transmission handing the distribution of video, HD audio, power and control, and support for the latest 4K standards, the EX-70-4K-ARC is compatible with full 4K@60Hz 4:2:0 over distances up to 70m/230ft and 1080p@60Hz/48bit up to 100m/328ft, including two-way IR and serial control - but that’s just for starters.

The real trick in this box of tricks is enabling digital audio from a display device such as SmartTV to be sent back to the receiver and to other locations via switchable audio control between ARC and local source on both units.  Even older (not-so-smart) TVs are able to get in on the act by outputting audio to the Toslink S/PDIF input on the EX-70-4K-ARC receiver, meaning any TV with an optical output can send its audio.

The flexibility doesn’t end there with the transmitter able to switch audio output between local HDMI source and ARC from the receiver, and the two S/PDIF outputs on the receiver switchable between local ARC and audio breakout of the remote source device. 

That’s a whole lot of audio switching options for something so compact – luckily EDID management, firmware updates and LED panel indication to instantly identify unit power, signal status and quality and HDCP presence helps guides through any potential installation challenges and two-way PoH allows for units to be remotely powered at either location making the whole experience even more convenient.
