NetworkHD - HD Over IP Control Interface

Part Number NHD-IP-CTL

* * * DISCONTINUED * * * 

The NHD-IP-CTL is an innovative NetworkHD controller for unrivalled ease of set up and creation of scalable HD Over IP networked distribution using JPEG2000 compression.

NetworkHD systems enable HDMI distribution over IP network switches with the NHD-IP-CTL acting as a central system controller to automatically discover system components on the same network and allow them to be configured from a single web interface to dramatically reduce configuration times.

The NHD-IP-CTL controller also enables WyreStorm NetworkHD systems to interface with third party control systems, including WyreStorm's Enado browser-based control interface, to control powerful WyreStorm matrix switching and videowall fucntionality.

Key features include:

  • Tailor-made central control for NetworkHD JPEG2000 systems of any size and application
  • True Plug and Play connection offers quick and easy installation with auto-discovery of system components for ease of set-up and future system expansion
  • Compatibility with leading third party control systems including the WyreStorm Enado control solution 


WyreStorm NetworkHD changes the way AV distribution systems are designed and specified in projects by providing integrators with a simple, flexible and cost effective HD signal distribution and advanced Video Wall management solution applicable to a wide variety of commercial installation environments.

The Easiest and Most Expandable HDMI Over IP Solution Available!



Capable of transmitting high-quality, full HD video to almost any distance, WyreStorm NetworkHD enables a standard Ethernet networking equipment to replace proprietary HDMI matrices, making installation and management of the AV distribution network simpler and almost infinitely scalable.

The flexibility of NetworkHD enables source components to be centrally located or distributed anywhere on the network removing the limitations of fixed input/output matrices and allowing the customers’ requirements to drive the specification, not the limitations of the technology.

The NetworkHD product range is WyreStorm’s first IP-based video distribution system designed to provide a more flexible AV distribution system and, for the first time in a WyreStorm product, video wall management solution enabling installation in a wider range of commercial video applications.

Designed for electronic system integrators who service commercial consumer electronic markets worldwide, NetworkHD is ideal for office buildings, airports, stadiums, shopping malls, sports bars, boardrooms or anything in between.
