WyreStorm HDBaseT Receiver with 2-Way IR, RS232 and PoH (70m/230ft)

Part Number RX-70-IR-POH

* * * DISCONTINUED * * * 
RX-70-IR-POH display receiver builds on the benefits of enhanced HDBaseT transmission stability of full 1080p HD video, HD audio and IR control over a single Cat5e/6 up to 70m/230ft, by adding routable RS232 capabilties for central control of display zones and Power-over-HDBaseT (PoH) for the added benefit of passing power along the cable together with transmission and control commands to enable receivers in each zone to operate without the need for local mains connection at display zones. 

Offering the very best in affordable, reliable and scalable single-cable AV distribution and control, the RX-70-IR-POH is the ideal companion for MX-PP-POH matrix integrations of any size of complexity in, whether in a residential or commercial setting. 

Never has so much been possible for so little.


Using the very latest Class B HDBaseT platform, products in the Pro Plus range provide single cable transmission of 1080p HD Video @60Hz, including full frame-packing 3D, HD multichannel audio and bidirectional control of source and display from either location via discrete IR and routable RS232 from a centralized AV location forserial control of displays located up to 70m/230ft away using unshielded or shielded Cat5e/ Cat6 cable with full compatibility and integration offered with leading third party control systems.
The WyreStorm RX-70-IR-POH display receiver has been designed to offer a more affordable and convenient HDBaseT solution over distance; intended in particular for small-medium sized projects that may not require the feature set or range of full HDBaseT yet still benefit from the signal stability and functions offered by this powerful single-cable transmission technology.
As part of the Pro Plus range, the RX-70-IR-POH receives transmissions and power from an HDBaseT PoH-enabled device such as a transmitter, any matrix from the MX-PP-POH range, or even allow power to passthrough using the AMP-001-010 Digital Amplifier for distribution of full, uncompressed HD video, audio and control signals without mains power required at display points. This not only offers more flexibility and convenience during installation but also greater energy efficiency than a permanent mains connection as receivers are only powered when the transmission device is in operation. 
All of which adds up to an incredibly powerful package for residential and commercial applications of any size or budget.
WyreStorm Pro Plus PoH HDBaseT products offer incredible flexibility and stability of signal distribution combined with innovative features and an ease of use that provides solutions where stable HD transmission and control over distance is required, whilst also eliminating the need for local mains power supply as well as additional control and video cables on installation, whether in a residential or commercial setting.
