Overview

Moving on from the first generation of WyreStorm NetworkHD™ using JPEG2000 technology, AV over IP takes a leap forward for Pro AV integrators with the NetworkHD 100 Series utilizing H.264 compression for the ultimate in high quality, low bandwidth, highly expandable modular HD distribution over a network.

An Ethernet-based AV over IP matrix solution for the distribution of multiple HD sources to multiple individual HD display devices, the 100 Series is a robust and infinitely scalable matrix distribution over a network that takes its cues from its previous JPEG2000 incarnation.  Built around a modular and highly scalable infrastructure design, the 100 Series easily allows the number of sources or zones to be expanded by simply adding more transmitters or receivers offering a total convergence between IT and audio video design.

A flexible, multipurpose IP Network distribution system, NetworkHD 100 Series offer modular system architecture and PoE that removes the limitations of a traditional fixed platform matrix system whilst offering significant cost savings when designing large scale infrastructure systems.

Satisfying low bandwidth demands, the 100-Series offer source HDMI to H.264 encoding, switching, decoding and control with the NHD-000-CTL control unit for content streamed simultaneously through a network switch over conventional LAN without conflicting with other IP devices that might be present to offer super-efficient bandwidth management to make it the perfect tool to manage very large installations over existing LAN infrastructure.

Comprising of the NHD-100-TX Encoder and NHD-100-RX Decoder, the NetworkHD 100-Series offers a highly scalable HD AV over IP distribution solution for matrix switching over an Ethernet infrastructure, with a simple system configuration and a robust feature set to provide the best possible value in networked video distribution without compromising quality.

Utilizing the most efficient compression technologies to allow for the largest of commercial AV deployments, the 100-Series features high quality low-bandwidth AV distribution with plug and play setup and Bonjour auto-discovery of components for quick networking configuration.

WyreStorm’s Quick Sync™ technology offers near-seamless switching with full RS-232 control of connected displays and CEC One-Touch Play, and major control system driver availability, including the WyreStorm Enado™ Control System.  What's more, the 100 Series is also compatible with the award-winning NetworkHD Touch app for iPad, giving access to all sources and displays in a NetworkHD system, including live video previews and drag and drop selection at the flick of a finger.

Offering considerable cost and scalability advantages over competing products, as well as an unmatchable ease of installation, the 100 Series is an ideal AV over IP solution for any number of commercial applications.
