WyreStorm 4x4 HDBaseT Matrix Switcher with 2-Way IR and RS232 control

Categories:
Part Number MX-0404-PP

* * * DISCONTINUED * * * The WyreStorm Pro-Plus range builds upon the popularity of our Pro range of dual Cat5ei HD Matrix Products and our full HDBaseT™ matrix range to offer the very best in affordable single cable AV distribution and control.

Never has so much been possible for so little. 

Using the very latest Class B HDBaseT platform, products in the Pro Plus matrix range provide single cable transmission of Full 1080p HD Video, HD Audio and bidirectional control via IR from a centralised AV location to displays located up to 70m/230ft away using unshielded or shielded Cat5e/Cat6 cable, with additional control achievable via RS232 including full compatibility and integration with leading control systems.

Additionally, Pro Plus matrices retain duplicate HDMI outputs, mirrored to the HDBaseT Output, that allow simple and hassle-free connection of local devices such as AV receivers, but also importantly provide connection to additional displays, essentially doubling  the number of connectable outputs, as well as offering opportunities to use non-Cat5e cable formats by using various WyreStorm Extender products. 

The Pro Plus range of HDBaseT Products, brought to you by WyreStorm.  Innovation for Inspired Integration.

Feature List

  • 4 HDMI Inputs & 4 HDMI Outputs over Cat5e/6 (plus additional 8 duplicate HDMI ports mirrored to HDBT Outputs)
  • Single cable output for all HD Video/Audio using HDBaseT platform with bi-directional IR control
  • Additional control via LAN, RS232 and RS485
  • Full EDID Management (Including 3D), HDCP Compliant
  • Compact 1U Design with integrated PSU
  • Display Receivers RX-70-IR-PP powered by mains or USB from display (SOLD SEPARATELY)
  • Drivers available for all main control systems

* When using shielded cable, please ensure you use shielded RJ45 connectors and terminate the grounding wire at both ends of the cable. This is standard practice when using FTP shielded cable.

 

Overview

See video

The WyreStorm PRO PLUS range uses HDBaseT Class B technology to sit comfortably between our PRO range of matrices and extenders and flagship full HDBaseT products to enable the transmission of full, uncompressed HD 1080p video and audio, with discrete IR control over distances of up to 70m/230ft using a single Cat5ei/6 cable.

While full HDBaseT is intended for high end, high spec installations, this more affordable Class B HDBaseT platform has been specifically developed for small-to-mid-range projects that perhaps do not necessitate the feature set or transmission distance of full HDBaseT, or the premium price tag that comes with an advanced specification. 

Yet the Pro Plus shares many of the same strengths as our full HDBaseT products, such as a ‘one-cable’ distribution method for delivery of bidirectionally controlled full 1080p HD video and HD audio, the same signal stability and resistance to electrical or environmental interference, but removes Ethernet functionality and reduces signalling rate and resolution range to 70m/230ft to enable the benefits of HDBaseT transmission to be achieved for smaller scale projects at lower budgets.

Additionally, all matrices in the Pro Plus range feature duplicate HDMI outputs, mirrored to the HDBaseT Output, which allow the connection of local HDMI devices such as AVRs or transmission to be lengthened up to 7 times by daisy-chaining multiple HDBaseT Class B extender sets to essentially double  the number of connectable outputs, as well as offering opportunities to use non-Cat5e cable formats by using various Wyrestorm Extender products such as Coax, full HDBT, or Fibre extender sets for unrivalled options and compatibility.

The baby of the Pro Plus range, this MX-0404-PP HDBaseT Matrix model allows any 4 HDMI inputs to be distributed independently and simultaneously over distances of up to 70m/230ft to any of the 4 HD output displays connected to the matrix, regardless of HDCP encryption, with discrete IR control.

The system offers flexibility and reliability of signal distribution, combined with innovative features and an ease of use to deliver HD audio and video, controlled via IR, RS232 or LAN, all on a single Cat5e/6 cable that removes the need for additional control and video cables on installations, whether in a residential or commercial setting.

Features

  • Quick and easy installation – set up in seconds straight out of the box
  • Input:  HDMI  –  Output:  HDBaseT with integrated RJ45 connectors for a single Cat5ei/6 UTP cable to each display point for ease of installation.
  • Conforms to IEEE-568B standards
  • Additional Output:  Duplicate HDMI mirrored to the HDBaseT Output.  Essentially doubles the number of outputs connectable to displays or enables connection to alternative cabling methods such as coax, fibre or full (Class A) HDBaseT using WyreStorm extender sets for increased flexibility and length of distribution.
  • Each HDMI port also supports DVI inputs
  • Enables up to 4 HDMI video/audio devices to be independently switched through up to 4 HDMI displays or projectors for uncompressed digital distribution
  • Each output able to show any connected source simultaneously regardless of whether the input carries HDCP encryption.
  • HDCP compliant with constant feed to prevent screen drop-outs
  • Suitable for residential or commercial installation
  • Reads and copies EDID from connected devices with additional EDID configuration through customisable DIP switch settings if necessary
  • Class B HDBaseT - same robust HDBaseT transmission technology far more resistant to electrostatic interference than conventional UTP distribution
