WyreStorm HDBaseT POH Display Receiver with 2-Way IR Control and RS232 (4K: 35m/114ft | 1080p: 70m/230ft)

Part Number RX-70-POH

As slim as it is powerful, the RX-70-POH HDBaseT Display Receiver receives 4K transmissions up to 35m/114ft and full 1080p@60Hz/36bit up to 70m/230ft, with multichannel audio, 2-way IR control, RS232 and remote power from WyreStorm PoH matrices, transmitters or presentation switchers along a single Cat5e/6 cable - all within a low-profile chassis capable of placement behind even the slimmest display wall mounts.

Key features:

  • Supports 4K@30/60Hz 4:2:0 up to 35m/114ft and 1080p@60Hz/36bit to 70m/230ft
  • Low profile chassis of 18mm and PoH for convenient installation behind displays
  • 2-way IR and RS-232, CEC passthrough, internal handling of EDID
  • HDCP compatible, update mode through serial port


The RX-70-POH Display Receiver utilizes powerful Class B HDBaseT technology to receive transmissions of uncompressed 4K/60Hz up to 35m/114ft and full 1080p HD video 60Hz/36bit up to 70m/230ft, including HD multichannel audio, 2-way IR control, RS-232 and remote power from compatible transmission devices, such as WyreStorm matrices, transmitters or presentation switchers using a single shielded or unshielded Cat5ei/6 cable - all within a low-profile chassis of just 18mm, more than capable of installation behind even the slimmest display wall mounts.

PoH (Power-over-HDBaseT) enables power to be passed along the cable along with transmissions from a POH-enabled transmission device to power receivers at display zones without the need for local mains power for greater flexibility and convenience during installation as well as improved energy efficiency compared to a permanent mains connection. 

If local power is required, the RX-70-POH offers additional 12v power connectivity via threaded bushings for both standard or locking DC power plugs and phoenix connector.  

Featuring switchable RS-232 for firmware update or matrix control from a display zone, the RX-70-POH also offers LED indication for visual confirmation of unit/transmission operation, including Power, HDCP presence within signal and Status and Link to illustrate correct unit function and signal reception.  

Tailor-made for WyreStorm POH matrix and POH presentation switcher applications, the RX-70-POH offers flexibility and reliability combined with innovative features and an ease of use to deliver HD audio and video and power, controlled via IR, RS-232, all on a single Cat5e/6 cable that removes the need for additional control, video cables and power supplies on installations, whether in a residential or commercial setting. 

All of which guarantees a quick, hassle-free installation, whatever the application, for the very best in reliable and affordable single cable AV distribution and control.
