WyreStorm HDMI Over SDI Cascading Receiver with 2-Way IR, RS232 (50m/164ft)

Part Number RX-SDI-50

Receiver Only - Transmitter sold separately.

The WyreStorm RX-SDI-50 is single cable HDMI over SDI cascading display receiver capable of receiving transmissions of lossless 1080p HD video@60Hz and multi-channel HD audio up to 50m (164ft) using copper-core 75Ohm coax from a compatible transmission device, such as the TX-SDI-50 transmitter, as part of an HDMI over SDI distribution.

Featuring full 3D compatibility and 24bit True Color with wide-band, two-way control from either source or display location via IR and RS232 with full support for leading third party control systems, the RX-SDI-50 also includes SDI loop out that enables up to 7 receivers to be daisy-chained together.  

NOTE - IR and RS232 control is only to the first tier, if daisy-chained together.

Key features include:

  • SDI loop out on receiver
  • Full 1080p, full 3D and HD audio compatible
  • Embedded EDID functions
  • 2-way IR and serial control

Note:   SDI Transmitter (TX-SDI-50) sold separately - both units are required to funtion as an extender set.

Overview

The WyreStorm RX-SDI-50 is single cable HDMI over SDI cascading display receiver capable of receiving transmissions of lossless 1080p HD video@60Hz and multi-channel HD audio up to 50m (164ft) using copper-core 75Ohm WF100 coax cable from a compatible transmission device, such as the TX-SDI-50 transmitter, as part of an HDMI over SDI distribution.

Featuring full 3D compatibility and 24bit True Color with wide-band, two-way control from either source or display location via IR and RS232 with full support for leading third party control systems, the RX-SDI-50 also includes SDI Loop out that enables up to 7 receivers to be daisy-chained together.

 NOTE - IR and RS232 control is only capable to the first tier, if daisy-chained together.

The RX-SDI-50 includes embedded EDID/SETTING functionality to manage the EDID handshake between devices and manually set audio and video settings to aid communication and help avoid compatibility issues that can effect successful signal transmission.

Although capable of receiving a signal from any SDI transmission device using 75Ohm WF100 coax cable, the RX-SDI-50 is designed to be paired with an TX-SDI-50 transmitter for scalable distribution of HD signals.  

With the TX-SDI-50 transmitter featuring twin synchronous SDI outputs to enable the signal to be sent in two different directions, cascadable splitting systems feeding different locations can be created by connecting a single transmitter and multiple cascaded RX-SDI-50 receivers to create larger, multi-location distributions.

The RX-SDI-50 is designed for residential or ProAV applications where use of coax to distribute and control HD signals is either required due to retrofit installations where existing coax cabling infrastructure must be used, or preferred for its low loss at high frequencies; vital for cable/satellite television, cable modem installations as well as commercial applications such as security/surveillance, broadcast television and film production in studio or location, video conferences, electronic teaching, in fact, any and wired network area where the extension and amplification of SDI transmission is needed.

Features

  • Single coax cable as a substitute to HDMI cable to achieve scaleable long-distance distribution of full HD video, audio and two-way control
  • Full HD support 1080p@50/60Hz
  • 1080p transmission distance up to 50m/164ft (75Ohm WF100 coax cable) under recommended conditions* 
  • 24bit color depth
  • Fully 3D compatible - frame packing/sequential (Blu-ray), interlaced stereoscopic (satellite/cable broadcasts)
  • Wide-band, bidirectional infrared control signal of source from display and display from source locations transmitted together with the HDMI signal
  • RS232 control signal transmissions supported
  • SDI loop out on receiver allows transmission to be cascaded by daisy-chaining up to 7 receivers to further lengthen distribution from a single output distances up to 350m/1148ft.  NOTE - IR and RS232 control is only capable to the first tier, if daisy-chained together.
  • SETTING Management to assist audio/video setting communication between source/display and avoid compatibility issues
  • HDMI V1.4 supported
  • HDMI port also supports DVI signals
  • Auto-adjustment of feedback, equalization and amplification
  • HDCP compliant 
  • LED indication of power and signal status
  • Contains ESD protection technology to safeguard against static build-up that can damage circuitry
  • Mini-USB port for firmware upgrade 
  • Units can be cascaded up to 7 times to create larger distributions
  • Mounting brackets supplied for secure installation
  • IR emitter, receiver and 5v mains power supply included
  • 2 year warranty

*Recommended transmission conditions denote - straight cable run within specified distance range of product, no electrical interference and the use of solid copper core cable with no bends, kinks or mid-run connections. 

Please be advised that the presence of any of these factors in your installation may compromise bandwidth and signal strength.
