Overview

4K UHD ON ALL INPUTS

With 4K UHD dominating consumer electronics now, WyreStorm’s end-user Express range has to be up to scratch to stay ahead of the game. 4K UHD compatibility and support for HDCP2.2 mean that the latest BluRay players, media streamers or games consoles can be connected without a second thought.

HDCP 2.2 COMPLIANT

As with all of our pro HDMI products, remaining relevant & legal is key to their operation; these switchers are no different and are compliant with the latest anti-piracy algorithms that prevent the unauthorized distribution of content, meaning a trouble-free installation.

AUTO SWITCHING CAPABILITIES

WyreStorm’s Express line of switchers follow the last in first out rule when it comes to auto switching, making this a convenient feature when temporary devices such as laptops are involved. Other methods include a manual front panel switch, as well as discreet switching via IR remote.

PLUG-AND-PLAY

A trend you may notice is the plug-and-play features WyreStorm’s Express product line possess and it doesn’t stop at our switchers. You can find the same auto EDID and HDCP negotiation found in other express products, but specifically passive power from the HDMI cable is what makes WyreStorm’s Express switchers the king of plug-and-play!
