Built by Us to Your Specification
Both models in the Custom range of matrix solutions feature a fully customizable chassis design and a selection of multi-format digital and analogue transmission cards options that can be selected using our online Virtual Rack Configuration tool. 
With cards converting to HDBaseT with PoH and routable control capabilities, custom-configured matrix systems offer a near-limitless input/output configurations for residential and commercial integrators, representing one of the most flexible, scalable, fully featured HDBaseT solutions to date to enable single-cable HD distribution and control to be tailored to the specifics of the project like never before.



Matrix OverviewWyreStorm MX-PP-POH matrices expand on the PP matrix range by offering all the strengths of 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 (MX-1616-PP-POH) or a fully custom-built multi-format HD matrix (MX-1616-PP-POH-CUSTOM), the MX-PP-POH range is designed to deliver the ultimate level of switching performance, reliability and installation versatility.

The MX-1616-PP-POH-CUSTOM improves on a traditional chassis card format with a completely modular design and selection of transmission card options to provide the utmost in installation flexibility and application, as well as offering quick and simple upgrade methods with faster on-site changes than ever before.

Endless Possibilities

As the name suggests, the WyreStorm MX-1616-PP-POH-CUSTOM offers a customizable PP HDBaseT 16 input/16 output matrix solution, with the modular design allowing distribution to be tailored to the needs of the project by selecting from a wide range of digital and analogue to HDBaseT transmission cards.  Each can be inserted in any sequence to fully customize your matrix to best meet the requirements of your project, with diverse and near-endless switching configuration options up to and including 16x112 and any permutation between with each individual HDBaseT output also cascadable up to 7 times for connection of up to 784 screens, each with routed serial control and each powered remotely from the Matrix itself.
