6x6 Modular HDBaseT Matrix Supporting 4K UHD with HDR, ARC and HDCP 2.2 (4K: 70m/230ft | 1080p: 100m/328ft)

Categories:
Part Number MX-0606-HDBT-H2C

When it comes to AV distribution we don’t believe “one-size-fits-all.  Never have.     

Whether in a commercial or residential environment, size, complexity, application and customer experience all vary.  So if all AV projects are unique you need a modular 4K HDR matrix switching solution capable of being tailored to the application, not the other way round.  

Meet the WyreStorm H2C Series, the modular evolution of our award-winning H2 Series HDBaseT matrix switcher line.  

Choose from a 6 or 8-way matrix chassis built by us to your specification with a selection of 4K HDR transmission cards for flexible, customizable multi-zone 4K UHD HDBaseT distributions that are tailor-made to the precise needs of your medium-sized residential or commercial AV projects.    

No two AV projects are exactly the same and now with the new WyreStorm H2C Series, neither is your matrix switcher. 

Key features:

  • 6x6 PoH-ready custom matrix chassis with support for 4K/UHD sources and HDCP 2.2
  • Built to custom specification from the range of TX-H2 transmission cards
  • SmartEDID removes conflict when mixing 1080p and 4K displays
  • Embedded WebUI allows setup and configuration and provides switching interface
  • Control drivers available for Crestron, AMX, RTI, Control4 and Elan
  • Matrix switching control via IR, front panel, RS-232, IP Telnet or WebUI

Overview

The WyreStorm H2 Series matrix switcher line goes modular... and gives options.  Introducing the H2C Series.  Flexible, modular 4K HDBaseT distribution custom-built to the needs of your installation.

Available in 6 and 8-way models, the MX-0606 and 0808-HDBT-H2C are ideal for AV projects requiring multi-source, multi-zone distribution of the latest HDCP 2.2 4K UHD video with HDR and multi-source audio matrix switching.

When it comes to AV projects we believe no two are the same, which is why we’re all about giving installers options for their distribution. 

The H2C offers a choice of four modular HDBaseT transmission cards, each with distinct video and audio capabilities that can be combined in any quantity or order to enable the integrator to specifically tailor their installation to their application.

Staying true to H2 Series matrix functionality, the H2C includes the same SmartEDID feature to remove conflicts when mixing 1080p and 4K screens within an installation by dynamically reacting to source routing changes and outputting the highest resolution compatible with all connected displays.

The H2C also includes an embedded WebUI where setup and configuration can be done effortlessly, allowing a clean and simple switching interface to be easily accessible.

But control options don’t stop there. Instant switching can also be done via IR, RS-232, IP Telnet, with support for leading third party control systems, or just using front panel of the matrix, if you want to keep it simple.

With custom-tailored AV distribution featuring a variety of HDBaseT transmission options, H2C Series matrix switchers give you more.  More connectivity.  More versatility.  And more installation options for medium-sized AV projects of all kinds.

H2C MODULAR TRANSMISSION CARD OPTIONS INCLUDE:
 
 
 
 
 
 
TX-H2-MIR: HDBaseT Class A transmission with mirrored HDMI output (4K: 70m/230ft | 1080p: 100m/328ft)
Features a duplicate HDMI output mirroring the HDBaseT output for connection of an additional local screen, AVR or WyreStorm extender solution.
 
 
 
 
 
 
TX-H2-ARC: HDBaseT Class A transmission with S/PDIF ARC output (4K: 70m/230ft | 1080p: 100m/328ft)
Do even more with all that 4K UHD content with ARC supporting transmission of on-demand 5.1 audio content that really makes the make the most of SmartTVs. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
TX-H2-AUD: HDBaseT Class A transmission with line-level audio breakout (4K: 70m/230ft | 1080p: 100m/328ft) 
Also enabling more to be made of audio capabilities, the TX-H2-AUD, offers stereo audio breakout of a zone with a 3-pin phoenix connector for analog audio.
 
 
 
 
 
 
TX-H2-CLB: HDBaseT Class B transmission without Ethernet (4K: 35m/115ft | 1080p: 70m/230ft)
HDBaseT Class B offers the same signal quality and reliability but half the transmission distance for greater cost-efficiency for shorter cable runs noth requiring Ethernet passthrough.

 

To take full advantage of the features of this matrix, WyreStorm recommends the following products be used within the system. 

  • RX-70-4K-ARC HDBaseT Receiver – Use this receiver when support for ARC functions of outputs 5-6 (6x6) and 6-8 (8x8) is required.
  • RX-70-4K HDBaseT Receiver – Use this receiver for outputs 1-4 (6x6) and 1-5 (8x8) or when ARC is not required.
  • CAB-IR-LINK – Use this cable when using an IR control system for matrix control of HDBaseT pass-through.
