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

Part Number RX-70-IR-PP

MODEL DISCONTINUED  -  -  -  Using the very latest Class B HDBaseT platform, products in the Pro Plus 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 Cat5ei/Cat6 cable, with additional control achievable via RS232 including full compatibility and integration with leading control systems.

The WyreStorm RX-70-IR-PP display receiver has been designed to offer a more affordable HDBaseT extender solution over distances up to 70m/230ft; 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-PP receives transmissions from an HDBaseT transmission device such as a matrix from our Pro Plus range for distribution of full, uncompressed HD 1080p video @60Hz, HD multichannel audio with bidirectional control of source and display from either location via discrete IR and over distances of up to 70m/230ft using a single shielded or unshielded Cat5e/6/7 cable, with additional control using RS232 including full compatibility with leading control systems.


Available alternative: 70m/230ft Low Profile HDBaseT 2W IR Receiver



DISCONTINUED- - - Designed with the needs of the installer in mind, the WyreStorm Pro Plus RX-70-IR-PP display receiver features more affordable 70m/230ft Class B HDBaseT technology that shares many of the strengths as full HDBaseT, such as a ‘one-cable’ distribution method, the same signal stability and resistance to electrical and 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

The RX-70-IR-PP display receiver also contains protection against ESD (electrostatic discharge) to further stabilise transmission with LEDs within the unit housing for clear power and video signal indication.  

Ideally, each receiver should be positioned behind displays and are powered locally, either by the 5v mains supply included or via the USB port of the display using WyreStorm USB to 5v power adapter also included for convenient, space-saving installation without the need for local mains power.  As the receivers only draw power from the display when the device is switched on, USB to 5V power is not only energy efficient, but also environmentally friendly.

Additionally, the RX-70-IR-PP is fully cascadable, with transmission lengthened up to 7 times by connecting to multiple 70m/230ft extender sets for increased distribution and even greater flexibility, whatever the installation environment.


  • Receivers capable of 1080p HD @60Hz and HD multichannel audio transmissions up to 70m (230ft) under perfect conditions*
  • Transmits discrete wide-band two-way IR control signal together within the HDMI signal over a single Cat5ei/6 cable.
  • Centralized RS232 for firmware updates or third party control with open source integration protocols available for market leading control systems
  • Fully supports 3D applications (frame sequential – Blu-ray and Interlaced Stereoscopic – Satellite/cable broadcasts)
  • Supports 36bit Deep Colour
  • HDMI V1.4
  • Cableii termination follows IEEE-568B standards
  • HDCP compliant
  • Automatically adjusts feedback, equalization and amplification of signal for easy installation.
  • LED indications for visual power and video signal status.
  • Receivers powered by 5v mains adapter or with the 5v USB power cable (both included) to solve space or power availability problems as well as being more energy efficient as the extenders are only powered when connected devices are turned on.
  • Fully cascadable to further lengthen transmission and increase your distribution capabilities.

*Perfect transmission conditions - cable run within specified distance range of product, no electrical interference, the use of straight cable runs with no bends or kinks and no patch panels or wall outlets used.  Please be advised that the presence of any of these factors in your installation may compromise bandwidth and signal strength.  

For longer transmission distance, Ethernet pass-through, to enable devices with 4k resolution or for 48bit Deep Colour compatibility, please see our range of full HDBaseT receivers and extender sets.
