WyreStorm 16x16 HDBaseT Matrix Switcher with HDMI Mirror Outputs, 2-Way IR, Routed RS-232, PoH

Part Number MX-1616-PP-POH

For large commercial or residential integrations requiring even more input/output flexibility, the WyreStorm MX-1616-PP-POH is largest model in PP POH matrix range and as with its smaller 8x8 sibling the 16x16 model features enhanced power and flexibility atop the rock-solid HDBaseT platform for projects requiring even more from a distribution and control solution. 

As with existing PP matrix models, the MX-1616-PP-POH offers all the benefits of a stable and reliable HDBaseT transmission of 36bit deep color full 1080p HD video, HD audio and bidirectional IR control of up to 8 sources and 8 displays, but adds integrated Power-over-HDBaseT (PoH) to remotely power display receivers from the matrix and routable RS-232 for serial control of display zones - all over a single Cat5e/6 cable up to 70m/230ft or even greater installation and control options.

Each transmission card offers HDMI input, HDBaseT with PoH output, IR input, routable control capabilities, as well as duplicate HDMI output mirrored to the HDBaseT output to connect to an additional local display, AVR or even a WyreStorm Extender solution to lengthen transmission or change distribution method (Cat5e/6, Fiber, Coax).  

All of which adds up to a significant step up in terms of features, value and application opportunities for applications of virtually any kind.

WyreStorm MX-PP-POH matrices expand on the PP matrix range by offering all the strengths of PP HDBaseT distribution of full 1080p HD video, audio and bidirectional IR control of sources and displays, with the added benefit of PoH (Power-over-HDBaseT) and routable serial control capabilities.

More Power

PoH enables power to be passed along the cable along with transmissions  for receivers to operate without the need for local mains power at display zones for greater flexibility and convenience during installation as well as improved  energy efficiency compared to a permanent mains connection.

More Control

Routable serial control via RS-232 allow control of all connected display devices, with protocols for leading control systems available on this product page – all of which adds up to an incredibly powerful package for residential and commercial applications of any size or budget.

More Options

Available as both a fixed, out-of-the-box HDMI/HDBaseT switching solution or a fully custom-built multi-format HD matrix, the MX-PP-POH range is designed to deliver the ultimate level of switching performance, reliability and installation versatility.


  • 16 x TX-POH-010 transmission cards, each offering HDBaseT In, HDMI In, HDMI Out and IR In.  As the "default” card on all non-CUSTOM MX-PP-POH matrix models, this transmission offers 70m/230ft HDBaseT transmission including Video, Audio, Control & Power, combined with a duplicate HDMI output to allow simultaneous connection of a second local ‘slave’ screen, AVR or extender product (including Cat5e/6, Fiber and Coax). IR in allows control signals to be sent to the sink device.

Award-winning Audio Integration 

Combine the WyreStorm AMP-001-010 HDBaseT Digital Amplifier to MX-PP-POH outputs to create a self-contained, video and audio distribution solution with full HD capabilities, with EDID management, HDCP compliance and complete control of all connected devices.

* When using shielded cable, please ensure you use shielded RJ45 connectors and terminate the grounding wire at both ends of the cable.
