Overview

The MX-0404-HDBT-H2A-KIT builds on the success of the WyreStorm H2 matrix platform and its popular 4x4 matrix with 4x PoH receiver kit models with the MX-0404-HDBT-H2A-KIT getting an audio upgrade in addition to its 4K distribution making it the ideal one-package AV solution for signal management throughout the home.

The 4-way HDBaseT matrix switcher transmits 4K HDR 10-bit video with HDCP 2.2, multichannel audio up to DTS:X and Dolby Atmos, bidirectional IR and RS-232 control up to 35m/115ft or to 70m/230ft for 1080p/60Hz. Uncompressed transmissions are delivered to the included 4x low profile PoH receivers, eliminating the need for local power supplies at display locations for installations that are quicker, easier and more reliable by reducing layers of connectivity and potential points of failure in a system.

New to the WyreStorm KIT line, the H2A Series lets you do more with your audio by offeringinternal audio switching, giving the option to de-embed audio directly from the HDBaseT outputs or even from the HDMI sources themselves. Used in conjunction with the EXP-CON-DAC-D, the H2A can also offer a simple solution to downmix 5.1 content if using a mixture of stereo and surround sound zones.

The flexibility doesn’t end there, with the H2A offering 4x S/PDIF digital and 4x stereo RCA audio outputs, it means audio can be sent to a 5.1 AV receiver or a stereo multi-zone audio system depending on the source content that is selected. And all switching can be done on the fly via the API, control system or WebUI.

What’s more, a single mirrored HDMI output allows a local AVR or screen to be connected or it can even be used to feed an additional remote display via a WyreStorm H2 extender.

Of course, as with all models in the H2 matrix family, the H2A includes WyreStorm’s QuickSync™technology for instant switching.  Also, addressing the increase in mixed resolutions devices in installations, the SmartEDID™feature removes conflicts when combining 1080p and 4K screens by dynamically reacting to changes in source routing to output the highest resolution possible to be compatible with all displays.

When it comes to control, the H2A offers plenty of options, with CEC triggering of connected screens featured in addition to front panel buttons, bidirectional IR and RS-232 supporting WyreStorm Enado and other major third party control systems andan embedded Web UI enables setup, configuration and matrix switching all within a simple, easy to use interface accessible from a computer or laptop.

For effortless, plug-and-play distribution of the latest 4K and 2K content in any small to medium size home or business, the MX-0404-HDBT-H2A-KIT offers a combination of value, flexibility and reliability that is hard to beat.
