NetworkHD™ 5x1 Presentation Switcher with ScreenLink™


The NHD-SW-0501 offers the same compact, high performance switching and scaling of multiple HDMI and VGA sources as its HDBaseT™ sibling, but as part of the WyreStorm NetworkHD™ AV over IP family it instead features an H.264 streamed IP output to enable access to the switcher and its connected sources from any network-connected display location.

With simple, flexible, integration-friendly control options including front panel, built in Web UI, contact closure panels, and RS-232 or IP control systems, the NHD-SW-0501 offers an HDMI output for local connection to display devices or a H.264 streamed IP output for transmission over distance through a network switch to compatible WyreStorm 100 & 200 series H.264 decoders (sold separately).



AutoSwitching LIFO

Featuring auto-switching support, obeying LIFO (Last In First Out), the NHD-SW-0501 features four HDMI inputs and a single VGA for a total of five I/O ports for signal switching and LED OUT for connection to a desk-mounted or podium-located control panel for alternative I/O switching.

A Myriad of Control options

Control of the NHD-SW-0501 is via front panel buttons, built in Web UI, contact closure panels, and RS-232 or IP control systems for control of the switcher itself or external connected devices. As part of the NetworkHD™ eco-system, the NHD-SW-0501 is also compatible with the award-winning free NetworkHD™ Touch™ for iPad control app enabling live video previews and effortless drag and drop selection of all connected sources.

High Performance 5 x 1 Presentation Switcher

The NHD-SW-0501 features 4 HDMI and 1 VGA (with audio) source inputs to duplicate HDMI and H.264 NetworkHD™ IP streamed outputs. Thanks to is powerful scalers fixed and auto scaling options enable instant seemless switching from 640x480 to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.
